Oxford United have slipped to 11th in League One after their one nil defeat at the Kassam on Saturday against an in-form Sunderland side. The winner for the Black Cats came courtesy of a 3rd minute own goal by U’s defender John Mousinho. Thame United’s trip to St Neots was cancelled because of the weather and it was the same story for the Risborough Rangers fixture against Thame Rangers. In the rugby, Chinnor made the trip to Canterbury on Saturday. Our local side needed to dig deep to overcome the atrocious Kent weather and their opponents to extend their unbeaten run away from home to seven games. The elements conspired against both teams to create a messy game but, with the wind at their backs, Chinnor were able to score a valuable try and a conversion and it finished Canterbury nil, Chinnor 7.
