I hope you are all keeping well during this second lockdown.
Alongside my private work, I am keeping busy with my time working at Oxford United FC where I am still able to treat the players as part of the medical team made up of dedicated and talented professionals; Amy Cranston (1st team physio), Spike (Soft Tissue Therapist) & Nathan Benjamin Smith (Sports Therapist).
It's so vital to maintain a routine as close to normality as possible, even if there are some restrictions. Fingers crossed that change is just around the corner.
Headington Youth enjoyed a very hard fought 1-0 win over Stonesfield Strikers to maintain their 100% successful start & two clean sheets in the Oxfordshire Youth Football League.

Now it’s back to business!
After a very exciting night under the floodlights yesterday, it is back to my clinic for the next couple of days before returning to Oxford Utd on Friday to help the team physically prepare for Saturday's league game.
It is always a highlight to share the experience of a large occasion with Oxford Utd, and yesterday was no exception. To see the players all give 100% on the pitch over 120 mins is so rewarding for the medical team, and although the FA Cup run was a nice distraction, it is back to business and concentrate on the league and our aim of promotion this season.
Due to Friday's extra session with Oxford Utd, and I am also attending an athletics meeting on Saturday, mean that my clinic spaces are more limited than usual this week, so please let me know asap if you would like to book an appt.

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 firstname.lastname@example.org / 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!
