PREVIEW: Mickey Lewis Memorial Game

Stars return for 'One For The Road' on Sunday

8 October 2021

There will be a chance to raise a glass and celebrate the life of an Oxford football legend on Sunday when we host the 'One for the Road' game, a Memorial for  Mickey Lewis

THE GAME
The day will see an Oxford United Legends team, a 2010 Reunion side, plus teams from Oxford City and Oxford University.

Every penny raised across ticket sales and the official fundraising page (https://www.gofundme.com/f/mickey-lewis-memorial-fund-official) will go to Mickey’s family.

THE TEAMS
The game will see two United teams: The Legends and the Boys of 2010 playing a half each against the Oxford City All Stars and the University Side.

The Legends side contains names such as Paul Moody, Matty Elliott, Alan Judge, Les Phillips while the 2010 team features the likes of James Constable, Jake Wright and players such as Johnny Mullins and Michael Duberry.

The sides will be managed by Denis Smith, Malcolm Crosby, Steve McLaren and Karl Robinson with Chris Wilder hoping to play in the game rather than manage.

Look out for Kaleb Cooper, star of Clarkson's Farm, and due to play in goal, while Tom Rosenthal, Jim Rosenthal and Timmy Mallet will all be on hand to help out.
