We’re excited to announce that the Oxford Saints senior team is a finalist for Team of the Year, in the 2016 Oxfordshire Sports Awards
Representatives from the club will be attending the prestigious event at the Kassam Stadium, home of Oxford United Football Club.
Entering it’s 11th year, the Oxfordshire Sports Awards looks to showcase the “best that Oxfordshire has to offer in sport and physical activity”. Over the years, the event has grown in popularity and success with nominations from across the county.
The Saints had a remarkable season in 2016, achieving their first undefeated record in the club’s 30+ year history with 13 wins and 0 losses. On 11th September, the Saints were crowned Division II Champions when they secured victory in the national final, defeating rivals the Cambridgeshire Cats in a convincing 24-2 display.
The team has been extremely successful in developing home-grown talent whilst also attracting experienced players from across the country to choose Oxford as their team.
Saints chairman Graeme Taylor said:
“This is a great testament to the work that the club has been doing over the last few years, and I would like to thank the backroom staff, coaches and players for their continued hard work and dedication.
To be selected as a finalist for the Team of the Year award has capped off what has been a truly remarkable year for Saints football.
Regardless of the result on the 27th January, the Club will look to build on our successes this year and continue to prepare for the 2017 season in Division 1”
