Goalkeeper Oxley was snapped up by the Tigers in 2008 when he was an 18 year old in Rotherham United’s youth team. He stuck around for seven years, enjoyed several loan spells, occasionally sat on the City bench and made his solitary appearance against Sheffield Wednesday in 2013 when he replaced the “injured” Eldin Jakupovic when the embarrassed Swiss had conceded a goal after an horrific blooper.
In the Summer of 2014 Oxley signed for Hibernian on loan. He announced his arrival early by scoring a goal with a wind-assisted drop kick on his debut, and a year later he signed permanently for the Hi-Bees. In 2016 he switched to Southend United, reuniting with former City boss Phil Brown. After five years at Roots Hall Oxley passed 150 appearances for the Shrimpers but at the end of the 2020/21 season Southend, once again managed by Phil Brown, were relegated to the Conference National league. He joined League Two side Harrogate Town in July 2021.
In the early stages of his City career Oxley was capped at England under-18 and under-20 levels.
