Lifelong fan Stewart Donald has purchased 10% of the shares in Oxford United.

Stewart is well known to the U’s as his company Bridle Insurance who were shirt sponsors on their return to the football league.

Over the few years Bridle and Stewart were involved with the club Stuart injected significant Investment into Oxford United.

However in 2011 Stewart became the major shareholder of Eastleigh football club and oversaw the rise of the club.

In 2013/14 The club were promoted winning the conference south to the conference premiership.

The Oxford United links saw ex-players arrive at the club with former U’s player Richard Hill recruited as manager.

Having met Stewart on a number of occasions I know his passion for both clubs will not diminish.

It can be viewed as a good move for Oxford United as Stewart has established himself within the football community.
