Joe Oliver re-signs with the stars

21st June 2016    News

Oxford City Stars have continued to expand their roster for the upcoming season with the re-signing of Joe Oliver. Joe is a familiar face at Oxpens and will be returning to the Stars for another year. This addition to the team has strengthened the stars defensive line-up even further for the approaching season.

Despite being one of the quieter players, he lets his performance on the ice do most of the talking. Oliver has been on the Oxford squad for a number of seasons, icing for the stars every year since the 2010/11 season.

“I had no doubts in returning at all. Oxford is my club and family.” Joe Oliver expressed on his return to the stars. “We’ve progressed massively in the last couple of years and look to push on and consolidate another top 4 finish in the coming season. With Simon staying and the new directors coming in, I think Oxford has a very bright future.” He expressed. “We’ve attracted some big names already and that’s testament to the hard work these guys are putting in behind the scenes. We’ve had some pretty big signings in Dom and Joonas to bolster our defence. Also keeping hold of Tommy Annetts was huge for us! I’m really looking forward to hitting the ice for our first home game and seeing what we’re capable of.”

“It’s great to have Joe back in Yellow.” Started coach Simon Anderson. “Joe goes about his business very quietly and for me is one of the most underrated players in this league. He skates tremendously well,reads the game great and is very cool and calm at our back end. As with Jake, I will be looking for Joe to maintain his solid consistent performances and make us better defensively.” Said Anderson, finally adding, “Again Joe is a very popular member of our team and we are certainly weaker when he is unable to play. We may have to take the locker room DJ roll off of him though, as his music taste is pretty poor.”
