A NEW date for the Oxfordshire Shield final has been confirmed.

The clash between Alchester and Chipping Norton will now take place on Sunday, March 22, at 2.30pm.

It will be played at Horspath Sports Ground, home of Oxford Harlequins, after being moved from Iffley Road.

The final was originally scheduled for Saturday, February 22, but both clubs had league fixtures they needed to fulfil.
