The Oxford City manager wouldn’t have been happy to see the back of it, and his New Year’s resolution was simple - more of the same! After all, his team won no fewer than five National League South games in December.
The month started well as they stunned then-leaders Billericay Town 3-2 at the AGP Arena.
Oxford followed that up by beating Truro City 4-0 at home, before putting East Thurrock United and Weston Super Mare to the sword.
After recording a score draw at in-form Hungerford Town, they ended the year in fine fettle with a composed 2-0 win at Wealdstone.
January may not have gone as well as planned so far but Jones and his players deserve the recognition for December’s commanding displays.
