With recent speculation, in certain sections of the overseas media, regarding Club ownership and potential new directors, we would like to inform you that we have been striving to get some clarity on the matter. To this end we have been in regular contact with Tiger, who has confirmed that the picture, that many of you may have seen on social media, is merely Tiger presenting an Oxford United shirt to Anindya Bakrie, who is a mutual friend of his, and new Club director Erick Thohir, and no more should be read into it than that. As a result of this, the Club has in fact put out a copy of the picture on its own Twitter account.
Furthermore we are also working hard to get full details on the circumstances surrounding the recent issues involving failure to make payments to HMRC on time. We are, of course, concerned by these developments and will report back when we are able and hope for a swift resolution. We will also seek reassurance from the Club that this will not become a recurring situation.
We’d also like to remind you that we have a Members’ Meeting on Wednesday 21 November and look forward to seeing as many of you there as possible.
The date and venue details of the members meeting are as follows:
DATE: Wednesday 21 November
START TIME: 7pm
VENUE: Oxford City FC Bar, Marsh Lane, Oxford OX3 0NQ
