OXFORD United fans will take a walk down memory lane as they celebrate the club's 125th anniversary by raising money for charity.

On Saturday, fans group the Yellow Army will set off from The Britannia Inn in Headington to the Kassam Stadium before the match against Shrewsbury Town.

It will be exactly 125 years since the U's were formed in the pub, on London Road, with celebrations planned throughout the day.

The four-mile walk sets off at 11am and aims to raise £5,000 for Oxfordshire Mind and Oxford United in the Community, the club's official charity.

Chairman Sumrith Thanakarnjanasuth and director Zaki Nuseibeh are expected to join around 100 people embarking on the walk at the pub, with United legend Les Robinson, managing director Niall McWilliams and Mark Brannagan, dad of U's midfielder Cameron, among those taking part.

The Britannia sits just across the road from the former site of the Manor Ground, United's old home, and was traditionally the home fans' pub.

Yellow Army member Simon Hathaway, from Thame, who is helping organise the walk, said there would be a strong feeling of nostalgia in the air.

He said: "It's almost like going back to the days of the Manor when we had a drink in the Brit before a game.

"A lot of people are looking for a nostalgia trip - there will be a lot of reminiscing of those days.

"It was a rundown old ground with lots of different stands, but everyone remembers where they stood week in, week out."

The Yellow Army previously held charity walks in 2013 and 2015, where supporters strode to the Kassam Stadium from Thame, Abingdon and Eynsham.

Saturday's walk will be slightly shorter and the fans group wants as many people as possible to join them.

Supporters Trust OxVox will present a photo of an old Oxford United team to the pub's manager at around 10:45, following efforts to have a blue plaque installed honouring its role in U's history.

OxVox chairman Colin Barson will make the photo presentation alongside Mr Thanakarnjanasuth, with the plaque expected to be formally awarded to the pub next year after the application was accepted. 

More than £1,000 has already been raised online, including a £250 donation from controversial stadium landlord Firoz Kassam.

Oxfordshire Mind was picked as a chosen charity after figures revealed suicide is the most common cause of death for men aged 20-49 years in England and Wales

Mr Hathaway said: "It made sense as that demographic is a big proportion of supporters of a football club.

"As football fans we can understandably sometimes get blinded by what's on the pitch but behind the scenes the community trust is doing great work.

"Long term that's just as important as three points on a Saturday."
