“The backing we get from the fans is first class and with Sunday being a local derby we know what it means to them.

“The players are fully focused on putting in another good performance and we’re all looking forward to it.

“It would be great if the fans could come along on Sunday and get behind us again.”

Cllr Cook said: “I was delighted to receive an invitation from Oxford City Stars to attend this season’s derby match with Swindon Wildcats. I would encourage Oxford residents of all ages to come along to support their local team.”
