Ambitious Oxford prepare for City test
 Women's Football News 10 Feb 2012
 
Oxford United are hoping to add to their excellent Cup run this week when they make the trip to play Manchester City. 
 
The Southern Region League side have helped light up the competition so far this season with a victory over Cambridge Women and a stunning 2-0 victory against South East Combination Champions elect Lewes in the last round.
 
The club was formed in 2008 and, after that first season, formulated a five-year plan to reach the Premier League. Richard Blackmore, the club's youth and community trust manager - as well as the team Coach - is confident that the plan is manageable. "Obviously it is going to be great to go to Manchester City and see the facilities but also to measure ourselves about where we want to be," he said.
 
"The important thing is to gauge where we are and how far we need to go to get to the next level.
 
"We have a plan to be a Premier League team within the next five years and are two leagues off that at the moment, but we are unbeaten this season and with all things going well, we are looking to get promotion into the South West Combination. Then we are one league off the Premier - that is where we want to be, where the Chairman wants us to be - and that is the plan, to get there."
 
Oxford currently have a 100 per cent record in the Premier Division of the Southern Region League and are locked in a battle for the title. The Cup run has proved to be a welcome distraction and captain Nell Boxall admits that the team cannot wait to take on City.
 
"We are all extremely excited," she said. "We will go there and enjoy ourselves but, although we are underdogs, we believe we can hopefully cause a shock.
 
"It's not every day you can play against a team like Manchester City so we all want to savour the occasion."
