Shurmer has had a break from hockey since 2013, and now having reignited his passion for the sport once again he joins the Stars for the 2017/18 season.

Kenny Redmond, Head Coach of the Oxford City Stars, had the following to say about his new recruit: “I’m delighted with the signing, he is a really composed player on and off the puck and he reads the game really well, I’m sure he’ll be a great addition to the roster”.
