Oxford United Women Club History

Oxford United Ladies were founded in the early 90’s, and despite only a loose affiliation to the club they achieved some notable successes.

In 2008 there was a full integration of the women’s programme into the football club which coincided with the introduction of the girls' Centre of Excellence programme.

This formed Oxford United’s first female development pathway with a clear progression from grass roots through to the women’s first team.

Since 2008 the women’s development program has achieved a number of honours, we have had players from our Centre of Excellence and first team represent England through all age groups from Under 15’s to Under 23’s.

We also had representation at last year’s World University Games where the Women’s Football won Gold. Currently we have seventeen ladies players that have progressed from the Centre of Excellence into the Women’s programme.

Oxford United’s Development Squad have continued to progress well through the footballing pyramid since they were restructured in 2008 with promotion from Thames Valley league through to the Southern Region, including achieving promotion twice and Jubilee Cup winners and they now play their football in the WSL Development League.

Since the integration into the club, Oxford United Women’s First Team have had continuous success, with back-to-back promotions and successive league titles. They have also won three Oxfordshire Senior Cups and two League Cups.

The most recent season 2012/2013 was probably the most successful for our teams. The First team for the third consecutive year won the Oxfordshire Women’s Senior Cup and also won the South West Combination Women’s League, winning promotion.

Along with both of these honours, club history was also made as the First Team reached the fifth round of the Women’s FA Cup against Everton, eventually losing to a superior team. Our fans turned up for the big occasion with record crowd numbers at the Kassam Stadium for both Womens FA Cup games, with 945 attending the Everton game and with over 700 through the gates for the fourth round against Newcastle

The continued success of the club was rewarded at the end of the 2012/2013 season as the club were granted a licence for the new FA WSL2 league.
