1940-1 Programme
OSC Finals 44 (Brightened)

The OFA obviously decided that the Senior Cup Final (played at the White House) merited a programme.
Hooker scored the only goal of the game to give City a win against a side containing Percy James, who would captain and manage City after the War, and JM Warfield, who had scored all five goals in a match for City in the GWC Final the previous season - and had once scored all seven goals in a match for the famous Corinthians against Queen's Park.

Because of the need to conserve paper, there were very few programmes issued during World War 2.
The Supporters Club tried their hardest, with very limited resources, with this issue for the match against Chesham in the Great Western Combination on December 21st 1940.
The City team that day was Jefferies, Castell, Hudson, Cooke, Longford, Guilfoyle, Lowe, Hawes, Jones, Martin and Uzzell.
City won 4-1 with goals from Hawes, Jones and Martin(2).

And even after WW2 was over, and the 1945/46 season saw a return of Oxford City to the Isthmian League and the FA Cup, paper was still a rare commodity.
It was two months into the new season before the City issued their first programme - this double-sided issue for their FA Cup match against Southall which was won 2-1 thanks to goals from Roy Hagar and Alec Wanless.
