Report: Cambridge United U18 3 Oxford United U18 0

Young U's beaten at Cambridge

4 April 2022

A young Oxford United Under 18s side lose 3-0 away to a strong Cambridge United side in the EFL Merit League on Saturday.

With a number of under 16s stepping up to gain experience, for once United could find no way through despite creating chances.

“It was a disappointing 3-0 away loss against a competitive Cambridge team who deserved the win in the end,” Chris Hackett told us. “It was a fairly even game with both teams having good chances but Cambridge were ultimately more ruthless in both boxes.”

“The boys have been outstanding recently but dropped slightly below the levels in the game, they are a young group and recognise we all need to bounce back starting from Monday.”

United face Southend United next Saturday.

Marriott, Maxwell (Franklin), Sankoh, Took-Oxley, Giles (Gerrard), Zabeli, Smith (Elliott-Wheeler), Coe (Brenan), O’Donkor (Iheanacho), Johnson, Owens
