Headington United had grown to become the largest club in the city, the club was renamed as 'Oxford United'. This name change proved controversial, both for the Headington supporters, and those preferring to watch 'City' down at the White House Ground.

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 league clubs would have to reapply to remain a league club.

Oxford's application was unsuccessful, with Exeter, Barrow, Hartlepools United and Chester all being re-elected to remain in Division Four.

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.

Away Kit

There are no confirmed away colours, although it is highly likely to have been white.
