OXFORD City boss David Oldfield admitted their future was up in the air despite playing this weekend.

The three Vanarama National Leagues opted to continue their schedule, although half of the top division fixtures were postponed due to coronavirus concerns.

The entire programme in the South division went ahead as planned though, with City drawing 1-1 at play-off chasing Hampton & Richmond Borough.

As a result, it was one of the highest-ranked matches in England on Saturday, following the decision by the Premier League and EFL to suspend their competitions until at least April 3.

There is a feeling the National League could follow suit this week, but Oldfield, who is only just over a week into the job, admitted nothing was certain.

He said: “I’m still learning about where I need to put my opinion, but I was surprised the game was on.

“But we respect the decision and once it was made we have to commit to the process and I’m proud of the boys for doing that.”

He added: “I think the strangest feeling about today was we don’t know what the future is.

“Usually you know you’re coming in and training on Tuesday and Thursday and you know there will be a game next week.

“Whereas who knows what the future’s going to bring and that uncertainty can affect people.”

There are eight games still to play and until the league changes its recommendations, City will continue to prepare for Saturday’s home fixture with Eastbourne Borough.

Oldfield though stressed the overriding concern was the welfare of everyone involved.

He said: “There was a feel (from the players) for guidance, they needed the decision to be made and once it was and the game was on they got back together.

“It just feels like different times and a decision has to be made with the health and safety of the players in mind.

“That’s where it is and that’s where it has to be going forward.

“I think it’s just a case of looking after each other and making sure we all get through this.”

He added: “Football falls so far down the priorities in these times, but unless we’re told differently we will be preparing that way.

“We’ll have to just see what Monday brings.”
