Oxford United’s under 18s face their first away trip of the season as they head for Forest Green Rovers in the EFL Youth Alliance on Saturday.
The U’s enjoyed a magnificent 11-1 win at home to Cheltenham Town last weekend, with a hat-trick of hat-tricks from Tyler Goodrham, Callum Crook (pictured) and a Trialist but know they face a tougher test as they take on FGR on Cirencester Town’s new 4G surface.
Two or three under 16s wil step up to get a taste of football with the older age group as the youth team prepare for a League Cup game at home to Swindon Town next Wednesday.
