Though the City website flags up next Saturday's match as the next home game, don't forget that Oxford City take on North Leigh at Marsh Lane in the second semi-final of the Oxfordshire Senior Cup on Tuesday (29/03) (k.o. 19.45).
This will be the eighth time the two clubs have met in the competition: City have won three of the previous seven.
The winners will face Oxford United in the Final, also to be played at Marsh Lane, on Tuesday, May 3rd (k.o. 19.45)
As the OM states, City would be aiming for a hat-trick of competition wins, something they've not done since the '60s-'70s when they won six in a row (though sharing the cup with Witney Town in the '70/'71 season.)
The OCFC report has City as aiming for their 38th win in the competition. A few years 'previous' perhaps, as City at the moment have 34 wins + 1 shared.
We played well in an entertaining match between two teams who wanted to play football - quite a contrast with Saturday when one team concentrated on trying to stop the other from playing! It was a good advert for Oxford football. United have some quick, talented youngsters and City had to work hard to overcome them. We had the upper hand for most of the match. The only downside was the injury to Alfie Potter only minutes after coming on as a second-half sub. One heavy tackle and he had to go off again. Poor lad, he has had a tough season and now it looks like it is over.
