Oxford United U18s host local rivals Swindon Town at the training ground on Saturday in the Youth Alliance League (KO 11am).
After an excellent 2-0 victory away at Exeter City last time out, the young U’s sit second in the league going into Saturday’s game.
Nico Jones, Tyler Goodrham and Fabio Lopes are all set to return to the side after being involved last weekend in the U’s first team FA Cup match against Hartlepool United.
The match will be played at the Oxford United Training Ground (OX4 2RR) with FREE entry for supporters. Kick-off is at 11am.
It’s the start of a big week for the youngsters, who face Preston North End at home in the FA Youth Cup on Wednesday 15th January at the Kassam Stadium before a Youth League Cup semi-final clash against AFC Wimbledon at the Oxford United Training Ground on Saturday 18th January.
U18s midfielder Leon Chambers-Parillon told us:
“Saturday is a big game for the boys, we all know the importance of the game and we are really looking forward to it. The FA Youth Cup game is another big match coming up and we can’t wait to face Preston at the stadium. We know they are a good side, but we are going into the game full of confidence.”
As usual we will have full updates on the game on our Academy Twitter page (@AcademyOUFC) as well as a match report and reaction right here as soon as possible after the match.
