Saturday brings a full set of weekend fixtures for the 1st time this season, with all 3 senior sides playing, plus the junior teams get their seasons underway.
Faringdon Town host their first home Hellenic League game of the season, with Fairford Town Res coming to Tucker Park (3pm KO). Fairford have played 2 won 2, beating Oxford City Nomads Dev’ 3-2 last time-out. The ‘Don should feel positive after a good performance against Thame Utd last week.
Matt Wills, Reserves Team travel into Oxford to play North Oxford at Cutteslowe Park, who have yet to play a game. The Ressers were on the end of a 9-1 defeat in their last game, but weren’t helped by their keeper getting injured before the match.
The A-Team play away to Wallingford Town AFC A, Wallingford are always competitive, so this should be a good test for the new management team of Stuart Sears and Jason Evans.
