Oxford United

Oxford United started in 1893 as an amateur club called Headington, a village team known locally as ‘the boys from over the hill’...

In 1960, to appeal to the whole city and increase national recognition, the club’s name was changed to Oxford United and two years later, the club was elected to the Fourth Division of the Football League.

After eight consecutive seasons in Division Two, United were relegated for the first time in their entire history at the end of the 1975/76 season. 

Publisher Robert Maxwell saved the club from bankruptcy in January 1982 and manager Jim Smith’s arrival was the catalyst of a remarkable three seasons culminating in winning the League Cup in 1986, and First Division football.

The club’s fortunes have been a rollercoaster ever since, to put it mildly!
