Anderson's Early Strike Brings City Success

1 week ago By Chris Byrne

Bank Holiday Summary..

Oxford City headed to the South Coast for their Easter Monday National South fixture where they took on a Gosport Borough side urgently in need of three points to stand a chance of avoiding the drop.
City started well and Kaiman Anderson had already had a shot saved before giving the visitors the lead on ten minutes. While Borough were making some chances, without a great deal of luck, it was City who tested their opponents defence more often and were worth their single-goal lead at the half-way point.
The Hoops continued to have the better of the chances after the restart, but were grateful to Craig Hill in goal on a couple of occasions for frustrating the home side’s attempts to get back on terms, and good defending stopped them adding to their tally as Gosport pushed forward in numbers late on.
Oxford City Nomads hosted Ascot United at Marsh Lane for their final Hellenic Premier fixture, and two first-half goals were sufficient to give them an upbeat finish to what has been a disappointing season bringing as it did just their sixth league win of the campaign. Though they finish in the bottom three it is quite probable that there will be a close-season reprieve.
Oxford City Nomads Development recorded their ninth win of a somewhat see-saw season as they charged to an 8-0 victory at Faringdon Town in their Hellenic Division Two (West) match, while Oxford City Development climbed to third place on the back of a 4-1 win at Aston Clinton Development in the East.
