Grassroots adult male leagues (Witney & District League, Banbury District & Lord Jersey and Oxford City Football League) footprints are on a district level and the Oxfordshire Senior Football League is countywide. 

The women’s league (Thames Valley Counties Women’s Football League) is across Oxfordshire and surrounding counties.

There are very little differences in terms of the rules and structure of U17/U18 football to adult provision. 

In our youth consultation, a key theme was that it is seen to be more physical. However, many said they quickly got used to the change in physicality and some said they felt there were little differences.
