DON JOINS THE BOARD
SCIENTIST and long-term fan Prof Lionel Tarassenko will add his university expertise to Oxford United after being appointed to the club’s board.
Tarassenko is head of the Department of Engineering Science at Oxford University and has been following the U’s progress for more than 30 years.
“I have been a fan since 1983-84 when I was doing my doctorate at the John Radcliffe Hospital,” he said. “I have watched the club in five divisions and have been a season ticket holder since 2002-03.”
