Meticulous planning was required in the summer for the Nomads as their fate relied on a team in the division above. Oxford City were provisionally switched to the National North due to the influx of Southern clubs relegated from the National League. However, the demise of Gateshead, who ended up taking demotion to the National North meant the Nomads were switched back to the National South. The uncertainty of what league Oxford City will be playing in has given the managerial team plenty to ponder over in terms of recruiting players. A core of players committed to the club regardless of the divisional switch including club captain Joe Oastler, Zac McEachran and Ben Jefford, whilst Craig Fasanmade signed his first full-time contract with the club. After a spell at Hemel Hempstead Town, Daniel Rown joins the Nomads from Braintree Town. Winger, Nana Owusu moved from Basingstoke Town to Maidenhead United in 2017 and after 18 months with the Berkshire club has moved to Oxford City. Striker, Stefan Brown comes in from Wealdstone, the striker has experience at National South level with Hungerford Town and manger Mark Jones is hoping he can be the main goalscorerRyan Case, Bobson Bawling, Tom Carter, and John O’Donoghue have departed the club. Finn Tapp, joined the Hoops as a free agent following a year as a professional at Milton Keynes Dons.

The Manager – Mark Jones

In the F.A Cup two seasons ago, Oxford City knocked out Football League opposition for the first time in their history and it was masterminded by Mark Jones. He also guided City to their first County Cup triumph in fifteen years. Taking charge of the first team in December 2016, Jones came into the role with coaching and playing experience. Not only does he currently head up Oxford City’s scholarship programme he also played for the club. His playing career included spells at Aylesbury United, Harrow Borough and Thame United and after hanging up his boots, Jones worked at Stevenage as Centre of Excellence Manager and Watford as Lead Youth Development Phase Coach.
