Oxford United V Swindon Headline

Not taken today, but on Saturday while out for a cycle on Kingston Road. I wanted to post this photo as next years football fixtures have recently been announced, and this year Oxford's fierce rivals, Swindon are in the same league for the first time in a few years. The headline in the Oxford Mail on Saturday was to advertise that the home game to be played on March the 3rd 2012 had been moved from 15:00 to 12:00, all the other games will be played at either 15:00 or 19:45. Early kick off, not sure why?

Maybe to suit the police? Less time for drinking up to 12:00 perhaps.

More likely so it can be televised, I think.

Definitely on police advice, all big local derbies are set at earlier kick off times to give less time for the idiots to drink!
