The best way to keep up to date with Banbury United Football Club


Oxford City 0 Banbury United 1

7 months ago By David Shadbolt

United’s pre-season campaign got off to the best of starts with a late goal from Chris Withington giving them a 1-0 win at Oxford City.

Banbury were without a number of players due to injury and being away.

Banbury began the better of the two sides but as the half developed City got to grips with the game and looked the more dangerous. But Banbury defended well when they had to and at the interval the game remained goalless.

City had the better of the second half, certainly in terms of chances though Banbury had their fair share of possession, but they couldn’t find a way through the Banbury defence and would pay for missing chances when with just five minutes to go former Shortwood United striker Chris Withington hit a superb strike from 20 yards into the top corner of the net to give Banbury the win.

Considering this was Banbury’s first game of pre-season and City’s third this was a very promising performance against a higher level side.

Banbury United: Jack Harding, Charlie Hawtin, Matt Peake-Pijnen, Adrian Boitos, Jack Westbrook, Luke Carnell, Sam Humphreys, Jack Self, Chid Onokwai, Conor McDonagh, Tom Winters. Subs: Tom Bradbury, Siyanda Gila, Darren Pond, Leam Howards, Chris Withington, Jefferson Louis.
