A cold January morning saw teams gather for the Under 9 KO Finals at Oxford City FC. First up were the KO Plate between Berinsfield and Cholsey Bluebirds, and the KO Shield between Kingston Colts and Wantage Town Youth. These were followed by the KO Trophy between Cumnor Minors Falcons and Abingdon Youth Yellow, and the KO Cup between Harwell & Hendred Youth Black and Oxford Blackbirds Rovers.
The spectators were treated to four exciting games, with all the teams putting on a great display and enjoying their football. Three of the games were settled in normal time, but the KO Trophy had to go to nailbiting extra time with two very evenly matched teams. Congratulations to all the teams on reaching the Finals.
