Moore and Henry Remain With The U's

Duo stay with United for another year

20 May 2022

Oxford United are pleased to announce that James Henry and Elliott Moore will be Oxford United players again next season.

Former Wolves and Millwall man Henry has been a big part of United’s recent success, scoring 54 goals in 181 starts, while Moore has captained the side and been virtually ever present in defence.

Both club and players were happy for the club to activate a one-year option on their existing deals.

“I think we all feel we have unfinished business after going so close to promotion for the last three years now and I want to be part of a successful season in which we hopefully go one better” James told us.”

Skipper Moore has also been a fixture in the side since arriving two seasons ago and was just as pleased to stay with United

“I’ve loved my time at the club and am more than happy to be part of what we are building here.”

Boss Karl Robinson told us

“Both of them are really good players but also terrific pros and great people to have in the building. If you look back over the last three or four years you can see so many crucial goals that James has scored or helped create while Elliott has been outstanding in defence for us.

“It was an easy decision to trigger the extensions on their deals and I am sure the fans will be just as pleased as we are to know they remain as Oxford players.”

At the same time the club has offered new deals to Billy Bodin and to Alex Gorrin as well as a short term deal to striker Slavi Spasov.

“We have made offers to Billy and Alex and hope they are with us next season, which means our senior retained list is done now. With Slavi he has had a terrible time with injuries and we have offered him a deal that covers pre-season and allows him to get fit and playing again, hopefully with us.”
