  • "The club has little choice but to pick up players from the pool out of contract. At this level it is the clubs who find the right blend, have some luck and stay motivated that succeed. Whilst we continue to pay £600,000 per annum on renting the unsuitable Kassam Stadium we have little chance of making BIG steps forward quickly. Will we manage to find a better Centre Forward than Beano is a concern isn't it."

Wayne Brown will be part of Oxford United’s coaching staff next season after signing a new contract.

The 37-year-old’s existing deal, which was as a player/coach, was due to expire this summer.

He will no longer be part of the playing staff, but has signed a two-year agreement to stay as United’s goalkeeping coach.

U’s head coach Gary Waddock said: “I think Wayne’s done very well and he’s got very good contacts.”

Brown will continue to oversee the development of senior professionals Ryan Clarke and Max Crocombe, but is also believed to be keen to make improvements in the goalkeeping department.
