Players kick off for world record memorial match

Two teams are trying to set a new world record for the longest-ever football match.

The attempt is being held in memory of three young players from Sussex - Matt Chaplain who died of a cardiac arrest in 2013, and Jacob Schilt and Matt Grimstone who were both killed in the Shoreham air crash last summer.

The teams must play continuously for at least 105 hours to achieve their goal. Follow their progress at

Civic reception for Oxford United players


Victory parade for Oxford United on Tuesday night

The open top bus parade route

Oxford United will hold an open top bus parade across the city tomorrow evening.

Fans be able to cheer on their newly-promoted team tomorrow at 5pm on Tuesday (10th May).

The bus will start the parade from Broad Street and finish at Oxford Town Hall around 5.30. There will be rolling d closures on the rest of the parade route through the city centre.

Oxford United sealed promotion to Sky Bet League One after beating Wycombe Wanderers 3-0 at the Kassam Stadium.

The last time the side celebrated a promotion with an open top bus parade was in 2010 after securing promotion from the Conference.

“We have had a brilliant season and this is a great opportunity for everyone to celebrate together."
