In a change from previous seasons, this year the Oxford Mail Youth Football League end-of-season awards took place through the day on Saturday 16 June at Oxford City FC. To give the occasion a more football-feel, each of the teams attending played small-sided friendly games on the Oxford City main 3G pitch and then gathered in the marquee for each age group presentation. There was also a speed shot competition, which we had hoped to run through the day, but someone hit a ball so hard, it broke the radar machine!!

We were privileged to have as guest-of-honour, Callum Slattery of Southampton and England U20s (also a former Garden City footballer). Callum took part in a Q&A session with the players and guests, and helped present the trophies to the teams and players, including the player of the season award (one for each of the age groups).
