A huge well done to OXFORD A on retaining the NBBA Challenge Cup last night against HIGH WYCOMBE A at the Queens Head in Hazlemere.
With a 5-0 lead and 26,970 aggregate advantage, Oxford must have felt fairly confident of victory but Wycombe made a fight of it taking the first two through stalwarts Ray Hussey and Terry Isard before Stuart Florey of Oxford got the vital point against Ernie Jordan. Dawn Jordan and Doug Carswell won the last two to make it 4-1 to Wycombe on the night and 6-4 overall.
Congrats to Oxford on making it three victories out of the last four championships and to High Wycombe on reaching the Final for the first time for many years.
