Banbury United boss Mike Ford can’t work out why the Oxon Senior Cup tie with Kidlington is being played at North Leigh.

Tuesday’s semi-final pairs United with the Evo-Stik Southern League South & West outfit who have several familiar faces in their ranks.

Ford said: “We’ve ended up having to go to North Leigh on a Tuesday night in March. We suggested to the OFA that the first team out of the hat should host the game – either us or Kidlington – so there is some interest in the tie.

“They said no but I think it was a fair suggestion and then you end up with Oxford City and Oxford United playing their semi-final at Marsh Lane! With due respect to North Leigh, I can’t work out how we’ve ended up going there when we could have played at our place or Kidlington.”
