Oxford City vs Oxford Utd LIVE Football Match Score July 16/7/2021
He came through the youth team ranks at Peterborough United after being released by Wimbledon at the age of 14, then by Millwall aged 17. Before joining Peterborough he spent a few months at the Barking Abbey Centre for Football Excellence, where he made several first-team appearances for Waltham Forest in the Isthmian League. He then signed his first professional contract with Peterborough on the 1st of June 2007, signing a one-year deal.
He joined Norwegian 4th tier club Kvinesdal on loan in the summer of 2007, but failed to make any appearances. In September 2007 he had a month’s loan spell at Grays Athletic, making just one appearance, coming on as a substitute against Exeter City.
The National League South side have managed to get a deal over the line, and that man is midfielder Alfie Potter, who most recently left Billericay Town, a team from the same league.
Adjacent to the stadium is a leisure complex owned by Firoka (Oxford Leisure) Ltd. They have no right to appeal under the Act but the leisure complex is factually significant because its customers share the use of car parking around the stadium and the overflow car park with those attending Oxford United FC matches.
In November 2007 he made a loan move to National League South side Havant & Waterlooville, for the rest of the season and then his career got better form there on.
The Localism Act 2011 requires local authorities to keep a list of assets (meaning buildings or other land) which are of community value. Once an asset is placed on the list it will usually remain there for five years. The effect of listing is that, generally speaking an owner intending to sell the asset must give notice to the local authority. A community interest group then has six weeks in which to ask to be treated as a potential bidder. If it does so, the sale cannot take place for six months.
The theory is that this period known as the moratorium will allow the community group to come up with an alternative proposal although, at the end of the moratorium, it is entirely up to the owner whether a sale goes through, to whom and for how much. There are arrangements for the local authority to pay compensation to an owner who loses money in consequence of the asset being listed.
This appeal concerns the decision by Oxford City Council (Oxford) to list the Kassam Stadium, which since 2001 has been the home ground of Oxford United Football Club, as an asset of community value (ACV). It is necessary to explain the somewhat complex layout of the stadium. The listed land is in two parts: the stadium itself and what is referred to as an overflow car park close by, but not contiguous. The stadium is owned by Firoka (Oxford United Stadium) Ltd; the car park by Firoka (Oxford) Ltd, both of whom are Appellants. I shall refer to them jointly as Firoka .
