Popular forward Joe Edwards has re-signed for his hometown club the Oxford City Stars.

The fans’ favourite has returned to Oxpens after a brief spell at MK Thunder in the second half of last season.

The 29-year-old said he is “looking forward” to pulling on the yellow and blue jersey again.

Joe said: “It was a tough decision to leave last year as Oxford is my hometown club that I’ve supported since before I played hockey, this was to play at a higher level and challenge myself to improve.

“When Simon told me that oxford was stepping up a level, it was without question that I put pen to paper to come back. 

“I’m looking forward to pulling on the yellow and blue Jersey and excited to bring some big old rivals back to Oxpens and take some scalps.

“It’s going to be a great year, see you in September.” 

Head Coach Simon Anderson said: “Joe is a fans’ favourite and I knew that we had to get him back to Oxford.

“He was one of the first guys I reached out to.

“Joe brings an unbelievable amount of speed, skill and goalscoring ability. He had a decent year at NIHL 1 whilst in MK and I know that Joe will be a scoring threat whenever he is on the ice for us.
