12th Man Squad Picture

We're pleased to bring you this picture of the 12th Man version of the 2010-11 season Oxford United squad picture, complete with 19 year old Joshua Smith from Long Hanborough, the proud winner of the place in the picture to represent the fans.

We hope you can work out which one is Joshua, given the number of new players coming in this close season, but if you start from club chairman Kelvin Thomas and look around, you shouldn't have too much of a problem.

We expect the picture to be featured on the club website and in the matchday programme pretty soon.

Joshua's obviously enjoying the experience and he had a great time meeting the players.

Joshua's step-dad has also let us have this picture of the two of them at the photo shoot:
