1960/61 saw Headington United renamed Oxford United. This was because the club was now the largest club in the city, but the name change proved controversial, both for the Headington supporters, and those preferring to watch Oxford City at the White House Ground.

Home Kit

Long
sleeves

At this time, most football clubs wore very similar kits, with no distinguishing features.

Oxford United wore the fashionable 'continental style' shirts, which featured v-necks and short sleeves. I believe these kits were made my Bukta, as the unique shape of the join of the v-neck is identical to other known Bukta shirts of that era.

Long sleeved versions of these shirts were worn during the winter months.

There are no confirmed away colours, although it is highly likely this were white.
