JOSH OLIVER RETURNS TO OXFORD CITY STARS
Even with all the wonderful signings already to have been confirmed so far this summer, Oxford City Stars have yet another great signing to bring you. Josh Oliver has resigned with Oxford, joining his brother Nick and Joe in the lineup for next season. After having played in Swindon for a brief spell, Oliver has spent plenty of seasons playing for Oxford City Stars.
The addition of Josh Oliver to the playing squad adds to the team’s offensive unit. When speaking about his return to Oxpens, Josh sounded eager for September to come around. “Glad I’ve got the opportunity to play for Oxford again this season. Very excited to be back on the ice and get myself back to fitness after a while off the ice. I’m glad Simon wanted me in the team, he’s always done good things for Oxford so I respect any decision he makes for the club. He’s made some great signings already, which can only strengthen our squad. All the players on our team have plenty to offer, I can’t wait to get back on the ice in games and get back on the grind with the team, I know I can bring goals hits and fast skating, but all I’m concerned about at the moment is working hard at training and getting myself back to that point. We always have a great bunch of guys so it’s always a privilege putting the skates on each weekend, and for the late night practices!”
Simon Anderson, Oxford City Stars head coach, is also pleased to have Josh Oliver signed up again, “Really pleased to get Josh back in yellow. We missed him last season after his bad injury forced him out for the season. Josh had a fantastic first season in NIHL1 scoring 19 goals and I am looking for him to get as close to that as possible to help our secondary scoring and take a little bit of pressure off of our top line. He has all of the tools to play at this level and I even think that he has the ability to play even higher if he wanted to. Great guy to have around and I am looking forward to working with him again this season.”
