Latest news update

First some dates for your diary.

Saturday 21st November: Please come along to the Race Night in the Priory pub, from 8pm. Come and enjoy a great evening! All money taken on the tote will be split 50/50 with the 12th Man fund.

Sunday 22nd November: The first 6-a-side football competition from 2pm-5pm at Oxford Brookes sports centre off Old Road in Headington. Spectators welcome – come along and watch the OUFC team featuring Chris Wilder and Kelvin Thomas attempt to retain the trophy they won 3 years ago.

Saturday 5th December: An early evening Christmas party in the Priory shortly after the match against Ebbsfleet. This will be an event for all the family, featuring food, a raffle, a mini-auction, and entertainment. Watch out for further details nearer the date.

Sunday 6th December: The second afternoon 6-a-side competition is held, again at Oxford Brookes. The OUFC team will be trying for a unique double – winning both competitions!

Money raised

As you can see, the amount declared is now £8,200, meaning that there was £3,200 in cleared funds in the 12th Man account on 4 November.

This total does NOT include any money from the sponsored walk on 31 October (see picture) for which an almost incredible £5,000 has been pledged, nor does it include a pending cheque for £750 from the Priory to be banked in the next few days. With money to come in from the events above, and other activities such as badge sales and flag bearers, as well as donations, expect to see a sharp rise in the figure very soon.

Other fundraisers:

12th Man badges: Only a few hundred are left now of both yellow and white versions, please get yours soon to avoid disappointment.

Wristbands: These will be coming soon so keep your eyes and ears open for announcements!

Flag bearer: The flag bearer package for £50 is well established – a few matches remain this season. Please email for details.
