United lost 1-0 at Wrexham, the Robins goal coming from Ian Stephens after just four minutes. Mickey Lewis made his first league start for over three years and Neil McGowan started in place of Steve Davis, who suffered an injury in the morning and Pål Lundin was in goal as Andre Arendse was off with […]

Two former United players were on the move today. Howard Forinton left Birmingham City to join Peterborough for £250,000, and Danny Cullip (currently at Brentford) has joined Brighton on loan. In addition Andy Townshend has joined West Brom from Middlesbrough for a nominal fee (believed to be around £50,000) thus scotching the rumours that he […]

A vastly, unrecognisably, better performance against Everton in the second round first leg of the Worthington Cup. United took the lead through Matt Murphy and Everton equalised shortly afterwards through Danny Cadamarteri. Jamie Cook came on for Derek Lilley and Rob Folland was replaced by Neil McGowan. Mickey Lewis made his first start of the […]

September 11, 1999

A dreadful United performance saw the U's go down 2-1 at home to a not much better Gillingham side. Oxford's goal was scored by substitute Jamie Cook in the last minute, Gillingham's came from a Nicky Southall penalty, needlessly conceded by Jamie Lambert, and Emmanuel Omominyi. Cook came on for Lambert, Weatherstone replaced Lilley and […]

Well, the world didn't end yesterday, and FOUL held its members meeting at the Supporters Club last night. The disappointingly low turnout was perhaps indicative of a perception amongst United fans that the campaign is now over. Whilst it is true that the club is a lot closer to survival now than at any time […]

United's reserves drew 2-2 at Northampton last night, with goals from Adam Hamp and Chris Hackett, a couple of youth teamers.

September 4, 1999

United ended Wycombe's 100% Manor record, although they were unable to convert their superior chances into goals. Still, unbeaten in four and another clean sheet must be pleasing, considering the absence of Anthrobus, for whom this was the first game of three that he'll miss. Whelan limped off with a recurrence of his hamstring injury. […]

August 30, 1999

A draw up at Blackpool was probably just about a fair result, Derek Lilley scoring his first goal for Oxford midway through the second half to equalise a Blackpool goal which, although against the run of play, didn't come as much of a surprise. Joey and Paul Powell were both booked for highly innocuous looking […]
