Oxford United F.C. is an English professional association football club based in Oxford. As of the 2015–16 season, the team plays in the League Two, which is the fourth level of the English football league system. The club was formed in 1893 as Headington before adding the suffix United six years later to become Headington United F.C. The club retained this name until 1960, when it was changed to Oxford United to give it a higher profile.[1] The club was elected into the Southern Football League in 1949, where they stayed until replacing Accrington Stanley in the Football League in 1962. The club spent 44 years in the Football League, reaching the First Division at the end of the 1984–85 season and spending three years in the top tier.[2] Oxford United spent four years in non-league football, before being promoted through the play-offs at the end of the 2009–10 season.

Ron Atkinson made 560 appearances, including 125 matches in the Southern League (a semi-professional league). John Shuker, the man who succeeded Atkinson as captain, made a total of 534 appearances with 478 in the Football League. He holds the club record for the most league appearances and the most overall appearances since 1962, when Oxford joined the Football League. Graham Atkinson holds the record for league goals scored with 97, as well as being the all-time top goalscorer, netting 107 times. Irish forward John Aldridge holds two records, the first being the most league goals scored in a season with 30, and the second the most goals scored in a season with 34. Both of these were set during the 1984–85 season, the year Oxford was promoted to the First Division. David Sloan made his international debut in 1968 for Northern Ireland, becoming the first of fourteen players to receive an international cap while playing for the club.[3] Of the players in this list, 119 are from the United Kingdom, five from Ireland, and five are from the rest of the world.
