Headington United had grown to become the largest club in the city, and as such, the club was renamed 'Oxford United'.

Oxford United were champions of the Southern League, but at that time promotion to the Football League was not guaranteed.

Instead, the Southern League champions could 'apply' to join the Football League, whilst the lowest four Football League clubs would have to reapply to remain in the football league. Oxford United's application was unsuccessful, with Exeter, Barrow, Hartlepools United and Chester all elected to remain in Division Four.

Kit Manufacturer

The start of the 1960's was the first time I can confidently say who manufactured Oxford United's kits. Bukta were based in Stockport and kitted-out many teams of this time.

Home Kit

Long
sleeves

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.

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

Although it was common to see the shirt colour described as gold, or old-gold, the Bukta catalogues stated it was Amber.

Away Kit

There are no confirmed details of the styling, although it is highly likely to have been as illustrated.
