Headington Amateurs v Cheltenham Saracens - 13 October

After successive three nil defeats, first in the league & then last week at Chalvey Sports in a Bluefin Sport Challenge Cup tie, Headington face stiff opposition this Saturday when they entertain a Cheltenham Sports side that are currently third in Uhlsport One East. No goals in approximately one hundred & ninety minutes of football is a problem that the A’s will need to solve quickly as they seek to climb away from the bottom half of the table.

Skipper Benji Cuff returns & Denel Thomas is added to squad for what would be his debut. Aaron Williams, who made his first appearance of the season last week, is a doubt with a shin injury.

 

bluefin insurersUntested Opposition - 6 October

Headington Amateurs’s up and down form this season, three wins plus five defeats in Uhlsport One West, will be tested in cup action this week as they pay a first ever visit to Division Two East Chalvey Sports for a first round Bluefin Sport Challenge Cup tie. Chalvey are unbeaten in their three league and one cup games played.

Last weeks three nil loss at North Leigh was a bitter pill to swallow with two goals in the last six minutes putting a gloss on the score that belied Headingtons performance.

They will be without skipper Benji Cuff at Chalvey as he serves a one match suspension, but Kyle Harris-Steele and Aaron Williams should both be available after missing out last Saturday.

 

Oxfordshire Senior Cup - 22 September

Headington are in County Cup action this week, travelling to Adderbury Park of the Oxon Senior League for an Oxfordshire Senior Cup first round tie with a 1:30pm ko.

The sides have met once before in this competition back in the ‘noughties’ with Adderbury recording a comfortable win. Both sides sit sixth in their respective leagues this season.

Luke Cuff, who missed out last week with a groin strain, should return to the squad, whilst Yannick Nkwanyou, injured in the seasons opening game on August 12th, trained this week & may also feature as manager Stuart Bishop seeks to build some consistency into his team.

 

A's Looking To Avenge Shrivvy Defeat - 8 September

After last weeks resounding win at Tytherington, Headington travel to Shrivenham on Saturday looking to reverse the result of two weeks ago, a single goal win for Shrivenham in a tight game.

Defenders Sam Gordon and Liam Morbey are unavailable, but Yannick Nkwanyuo returns along with Ollie Zaja. Also added to the squad for the first time is new signing, striker Dean Boyles.

 

Bank Holiday Home Double - 26 August

Headington's Uhlsport One West Bank Holiday fixtures sees them play host to Shrivenham on Saturday then Easington Sports on Monday, completing a four match run of home games to complete their August programme.

Aftab Hafiz is unavailable for Saturday's game but Jay Hill returns & new signing Dan Mirnam is added to the squad. After last weeks dramatic comeback from two goals down manager Stuart Bishop is looking for consistency as several new faces settle in.

 

Headington v Pewsey Vale - 12 August

Headington Amateurs entertain Pewsey Vale in their Uhlsport Hellenic League Division One West season opener.

Pewsey's return to Uhlsport Hellenic football and Headington's 'transfer' from One East to One West means these sides meet for the first time since the 2008-09 season when they shared a win apiece.

After an excellent campaign in '16-17 which realised a third place finish in One East, along with a run to the semi final of the Bluefin Sport Challenge Cup, Headington have 'endured' a less happy close season with seven of last year's squad having moved to other clubs. Saturday's squad will contain a number of new faces.

With a further three players doubtful because of injury, and manager Stuart Bishop on holiday, Assistant Manager Matty Jacob delays his selection until fitness tests have been completed.
