Attendance 841 – Second highest ever at the ASM Stadium.
There was a great buzz at the ASM Stadium with Thame’s U9s acting as mascots and ball boys/girls. It was also great to see the U’s bring a strong squad to play the Red Kites. This was a solid display on the field even more so considering this was Thame’s first match of 2019/20. There was some positive performances from a number of Thame’s players, for example Craig Hill made a number of great saves in the first half much to the U’s frustration. Also Noah Alabi put in a great debut performance on the wing. There were some great moments of football played from the trialists on show. Captain Ben Sturgess worked extremely hard in midfield against a talented Oxford United midfield.
A massive credit must go to all at Thame Football for getting the stadium ready for the day. Also there was alot of hard work from everyone on the day to make it such a success!
It was also nice to see local news Thame Hub in attendance along with local children’s charity Thomley who did a great job fundraising.
Goals from Gavin Whyte and Rob Hall sealed a 2-0 win at Thame United this evening as Oxford United’s pre-season began to gather pace. A Whyte penalty and a clever goal from the fit again Hall capped another decent display in which almost the whole squad got game time.
