Oxford United in running for Football League prizes

OXFORD United have been shortlisted in two categories at the 2013 Football League Awards, held next month.

The U's are in a group of six clubs for the Family Club of the Year prize - the third year in a row they have been commended in such a category.

Peter Rhoades-Brown is also in the final three for the league's Unsung Hero award.

United's community officer, who first came to the club as a player in 1984, has worked to inspire thousands of youngsters to play football across Oxfordshire since hanging up his boots.

He said: "The Youth and Community Trust work very hard and being recognised in this way is a reward for all the hard work that everyone does."

The winners will be announced at a ceremony on Sunday, March 24.

at least it'll make up for a poor season.Poor OU fans having to endure watching a club hell bent on stagnation, whilst trying to achieve financial stability is laudible, there needs to be ambition, or support will dwindle away.

totally agree with Rosie getting a nominationfor an award, he's been great at this club, a loyal guy. However i do question the family award, how can we be listed for that in the wake of signing a goalkeeper whose actions destoyed a family? Hypocrisy in the highest order!
