The 24 year old defensive player, originally from Wales, had spent his entire ice hockey career playing for 3 different teams before he made the decision to move to Oxford.

As a junior, Gray played out of Swindon for various teams including the Cougars, Leopards and ENL Wildcats.

In 2011, Gray featured in the NIHL North, playing for the Sheffield Senators where he stayed until the 2015/16 season. During his 4th year with the club based in the Steel City he was the alternate captain for the Senators.

Last year saw him join Bracknell and now will be playing in a Stars for the upcoming season, which starts in September.

Keen to represent the Stars, Gray spoke about his signing with the club, “I’m excited to be joining Oxford and looking forward to working hard and hopefully having a great season. I’m happy to be playing for Kenny again, he’s a great coach and expects a lot from his players. The fans have been great whenever I’ve played against Oxford, they really get behind the team”.

Coach Redmond is also looking forward to Gray making his debut for the Stars, “I’m delighted to have signed Martyn. He improved immensely with the Hornets last season, he’s a good ‘stay at home’ defenceman who battles hard in every game. He has a great attitude and wants to improve every time he’s on the ice”.
