Meet the Guard of Honour

Oxford Blackbird Girls lead out the U's and the Eagles

22 August 2022

Our Guard of Honour when we welcome Crystal Palace on Tuesday night are Oxford Blackbirds U11 Girls

Team coach Craig Greenough, his wife Kirsty and Thomas Farnell all work together to help their U11 ‘Lionesses of the Leys’ on their grassroots journey.

Through the covid pandemic they kept the team togetherness going by doing zoom meetings and when they came back to football the girls had a brilliant season getting to the final in their league cup. The focus is to encourage the girls to have fun and develop along the way which has shown in their performance; the girls love football and there are some big OUFC fans in the team .

Craig told us

“The opportunity for our girls at the Crystal Palace game will be amazing in front of thousands of people - an experience of a lifetime ,

“Our amazing sponsors Classic Flooring Oxford, Terrystone Cottage, Master Barbers and PJ Webb Painting and Decorating support the team with kits and accessories and we can't thank them enough as without sponsors the team wouldn't be here.”
