National Ice Hockey League Division 2 (South)

Green and Cox are back!

11th June 2015    News

We may have to double the amount of staff we have on the turnstiles – we’re bringing two massive crowd favourites back to Oxpens Road – ladies and gentlemen, welcome back Alan “Steamy” Green and Andy Cox.

The pair went to NIHL2 side the Slough Jets a year ago after the Stars were promoted to the first division, but both played brief cameo roles for the Stars at the turn of the year on a two-way deal.

In those appearances, both players showed Stars fans what they were missing, with the standout highlight being Green’s hattrick in the infamous Battle of Oxpens match between Oxford City Stars and London Raiders for the club’s annual Oxfordshire United game in January.

Green brings goals no matter what level he plays at and has scored 150 in his 133 games for the Stars to date. Anderson knows Green’s presence will terrify division one defences: “Steamy’s going to have all NIHL1 defencemen worried as soon as he gets on the ice. He not only scores goals, he makes the players on the ice around him better as well. Getting him back was a priority right from the day I started recruiting for the coming season. He knows the returning local guys and so will fit in to what myself and Darren demand in terms of being a good team guy on and off the ice. We look forward to seeing him pull on a Stars jersey.”

The versatile 32 year old Cox has amassed 243 appearances for the Stars since his debut in 2001. Head coach Simon Anderson is pleased to have Cox back in the fold: “Coxy is just someone we had to sign to improve our back end. It’s no secret that good British d-men are hard to find and we are delighted that Coxy has decided to return for this season. As with Steamy, when he signed on a two-way, we were a better team and his commitment to the cause was outstanding. He is a great guy in the dressing room, plays a solid offensive defenceman role and will make us better in all situations.”
