Players Wanted for Headington Youth U16's Football Team

I have been a youth football coach for over 10 years and I am currently managing the Headington Youth U16's football team where I am looking for at least 3 more players to help increase our friendly squad in preparation for the coming season.

We train 6.30pm - 8pm on Friday in Risinghurst where we will also play our Sunday league games in the Oxford Mail Youth League.

If you are a boy or girl footballer who will be in school year 11 for 2019/2020 and want to enjoy playing in a friendly and supportive team with the emphasis on supportive team work and not just 'winning at all costs' and with the playing time shared equally throughout the team please contact me via chris@back2best.com / mob. 07905808612

My U11's were voted the Oxfordshire FA Respect Team of the Year (out of over 400 teams) a few years ago and I still apply the same principles of fair play and respect with my team today, so if you just want to enjoy your football in a non pressurised environment then Headington Youth U16's is for you!

Another success story!

Austrian Ironman Medal

Helping my clients to achieve their goals.

It is always wonderful to see my clients achieve their specific goals and today was no exception.

Someone I have been treating to prepare for their first Ironman came in to thank me as they completed the Austrian Ironman under their target time of a very respectful 14 hours with their well earned medal and also to give me a present of Pumpkin oil as a gesture of their appreciation which was so thoughtful and very appreciated.

I am privileged to be able to share in many of my client's journeys and to help them achieve their goals, whether it is winning a medal, completing a race, recovering from an injury or living without postural pain and when they send me a 'finishing line selfie' or pop in to say thanks is just the icing on the cake!

Back for my 7th season with Oxford United FC!

Back for my 7th season with Oxford United FC!

It was great to return to Oxford United to work alongside the OUFC medical team after 6 weeks away today.

This time of year the majority of the soft tissue treatment is to help maintain the player's physical condition while they train at an increased level in order to achieve maximum fitness and start the season as strongly as possible.

It is always enjoyable to work alongside the medical team again especially the 'boss' Amy who is the 1st team physio, Spike (who I have had the pleasure of working alongside for the past 7 years) and Nathan the Sports Therapist.

When I return after the pre season break I always find it strange to not see the 1st team players who have left the club but then again it is always nice to greet the new arrivals who will soon become familiar faces and the relationship of athlete/therapist forms where we can both identify what types of treatment they find most beneficial.

My time at Oxford United equates to one full day at the training ground and attending the home matches and is a very rewarding part of my career and it fits in well with my time as a professional Soft Tissue Specialist allowing me time to run my clinic in Headington to treat those who need my help including; professional athletes, semi pro and amateur athletes, recreational sportspeople, office workers for postural pain and absolutely anyone else who would like to benefit from a professional soft tissue treatment/sports massage.

Here's to a successful 2019/2020 season for Oxford United!
