First published in News

FORMER Oxford United player Dave Langan has sold several of his awards for £2,640.

They included the 57-year-old’s Oxford United Player of the Year award for the season 1984/85, which was sold for £80 – £20 less than the estimate.

The former right-back, who played for the U’s between 1984 and 1987, put the items up for auction in London yesterday to “make ends meet”.

Last year Oxford United supporters raised £5,000 to buy Mr Langan’s Milk Cup and Division 2 winner’s medals to help ease his financial worries.

Playing left him with such bad back and leg injuries that he can barely walk now, A job away from football is touch enough for a former pro irrespective of injuries, as a 57 year old carrying the injuries he has it would be a near impossibility
