Hall stays on

Robert Hall has extended his contract with Oxford United until Wednesday 9 November.

The new arrangement will allow the striker to be selected for Oxford's Johnstone's Paint Trophy quarter-final after he scored in Tuesday's 2-1 win against Aldershot Town. Hall has had a major impact in his first month at Oxford, hitting three goals in five unbeaten matches.

Still only 17 until 20 October, he was singled out by manager Sam Allardyce in last week's matchday programme as one to watch for the future. Other youngsters on loan are Olly Lee (Dagenham & Redbridge), Ahmed Abdulla (Swindon Town), Callum McNaughton (AFC Wimbledon), Frank Nouble (Gillingham), Cristian Montano (Notts County) and Jordan Brown (Aldershot Town).
