The darkside of Oxford win the Oxford derby
Oxford United sporting their new all black kit got their preseason off to a good start with a 3-0 win over Oxford City on the new 3G pitch.
In hot conditions it was a party atmosphere with a live band and people sipping nice cold drinks. A welcome start for anyone associated with either team as it had been a long break away from football.
