THE Oxford Mail’s special magazine celebrating Oxford United’s 125th anniversary has been recognised at the Regional Press Awards.

Shortlisted for the innovation and initiative accolade, the 124-page publication was highly commended at this afternoon’s ceremony in London.

Charting the highs and lows of the club since its inception in 1893, the magazine includes features on the key matches, promotions, managers and the legendary players, as well as a special section on sites considered for a new stadium throughout the years.

There is also an enthralling interview with U’s legend Ron Atkinson, who picks his all-time greatest Oxford United XI.
