Oxford United Women’s Development Squad will take centre stage this weekend, as they face Oxford City Women in the Oxfordshire County Cup Semi Final.
Kick off is at 1:30 PM on Sunday the 19th of February at Court Place Farm and entrance is free for everyone.
The Development Squad have been flying, top of their league and into the Semi Final of both the County Cup and the FAWNL Reserve Cup.
It’ll be the Court Place Farm Derby; although United are the home side, both teams play their home games in OX3.
Manager George Anthony told us
“We’ve been getting on really well, the past few games have been challenging for us in different ways which has given us things to look at and work on in training which we’ve put into practice well.
“Cup games always bring a different challenge and it’s a semi final so it’s really exciting to be involved in that kind of one off game. It’s not often you have a game when no one really has home advantage, so I think it’ll be an exciting game.
“Hopefully, there’ll be lots of fans from both sides and we can’t wait. The more we can advertise the level of football that we have here in the county the better.
“We’ve played City a few times last year but they will have changed and developed since we’ve last played them so it’ll be a challenge for us, and something that we’ll prepare for just as we would any other game.
