City travel to Oxford City on Saturday hoping to get back to winning ways after reverses in recent away matches. The Hoops have started the season strongly at Marsh Lane, picking up ten points from four matches including wins over Wealdstone and Torquay. However City have an unbeaten record there and so should travel with confidence.
Bath aside, there is probably no more attractive city to visit in National League South than Oxford. As well as many attractions, including the historic university buildings, famous museums and galleries, the city is blessed with some outstanding pubs and restaurants.
Unfortunately, as with so many of our destinations in this league, Marsh Lane is situated some three miles from the centre, requiring a bus or taxi trip and there are few facilities in the neighbourhood. However, there is excellent access from the nearby ring road so there is no need to drive through the centre if you are just interested in the match. The ground is neatly set out, with a good sized clubhouse, and it now includes a 3G pitch which hopefully will play better than in last season’s 1-1 draw.
A detailed description of the ground can be found at…
The eighty mile trip from Bath will take just under two hours. The Supporters Club hope to run a large coach and full details can be found at:
The train journey from Bath Spa will involve changing at Didcot and a thirty minute bus ride to the ground from Oxford station.
