Bardwell got their 50th anniversary celebrations started after they announced the Jersey Lodge of Freemasons as their new sponsors.

The Lodge, which meets at Weyland Hall in Bicester, will provide kits for two of their teams.

Bill Butcher, the Master of Jersey Lodge says, “Freemasonry is very much part of the community and we are doing this for the benefit of the young people of Bicester.”

Launton Boys under 9s won the Thame Festival of Football on Sunday.

They beat Aylesbury United 1-0 in the final, to win all seven matches, conceding only one goal.
