Oxford Takes A Leaf Out Of Cambridge’s Book

When I visited all of the 92 football clubs in England, Oxford was one of the most difficult to get to. I said this.

Oxford, must surely be one of the most difficult stadia to get to from the town centre, even if you have a car. And if you do, you have to actually drive along the by-pass where there are queues of traffic. Of all the taxis I have taken to get to and from grounds, Oxford was by far the most expensive.

But from 2020, it’ll all be different.

According to the BBC, Chiltern Trains are opening up the Cowley branch to passenger trains, which will stop at the Science and Business Parks. Some reports say this will also handle the football ground.

But it is good to see Oxford following Cambridge and having a station at the Spence Park.
