A LONG-running grassroots football club is collecting pictures of teams gone by to better tell the history of the club.

The Oxford Blackbirds, formed in 1963, are collecting the images to be featured on a new website.

Anyone who has played for the team over the years is being asked to submit their images and memories on Facebook.

The website, the club's first, is being made thanks to funding and support from Crystal Windows and designers More than a Website.

Based in the Blackbird Leys estate, more than 200 children play for the club across several different age categories and abilities.

More than 40 female players are now also on the books.
