U's Hoping Season Will End On The Pitch

Latest update as EFL prepare to meet

14 May 2020

With the EFL meeting tomorrow to discuss the continued absence of league football Oxford United would like to reiterate their belief that the 2019/20 season should still be allowed to conclude on the pitch.

Managing Director Niall McWilliams told us

“Karl said it in his interviews last week: we want to play. Obviously that’s not going to be easy and I don’t envy the EFL trying to find a way to make it happen but as a club we would love to finish the job that we started all those months ago and try to win promotion on the pitch.

“It feels like society is slowly taking the first steps back towards normal life and that inevitably means people asking when we are going back.

“Everyone sees the speculation and the different scenarios and we spoke to a number of clubs this week just to try and gauge opinion. Our message to them, and to the fans remains the same. If a safe way can be found for football to return then we will be ready.”
