OXFORD City wide man Luke Coulson has an opportunity to reignite his Football League career today after being invited for a trial at Crewe Alexandra.

The 21-year-old has been a key member of City’s side this season in Vanarama National League South and his form has not gone unnoticed.

Coulson starts training today with the Sky Bet League One outfit, renowned for bringing through young talent.

If successful, it could lead to a full-time contract, but Coulson is not getting carried away.

He said: “Justin (Merritt, City’s general manager) is letting me go so they can have a look at me, so I’m really grateful for that.

“There’s a long way to go yet and I’ve still got to get there and do the right things, but hopefully it’ll work out.”

Prior to signing for City in January, Coulson was in the youth team at Manchester City and also spent time at Cardiff City.

A series of unsuccessful trials followed his release by the Bluebirds, but Coulson believes regular football at Marsh Lane has improved him.

He said: “Playing under 21s football is great and you get to play on the nice surfaces with young lads your age, but at the end of the day there’s nothing there.

“With this, there’s money and bonuses on the line.

“This is how we make our living and it’s been really good for me.”

  • OXFORD City's league game on Saturday has been postponed due to opponents Sutton United's involvement in the FA Cup.

The fixture at Gander Green Lane has been moved to Monday, November 2.
