Stars Retire No. 16 Jersey

26th January 2018    News

Oxford City Stars legend Alan Green will have his No. 16 jersey retired ahead of the Stars home match against Chelmsford on Sunday.

The shirt will then be permanently displayed at the rink, meaning no other player will ever be able to wear the number again – as a mark of respect for Green’s significant contribution to the club.

Green will be joined by former Stars players Dan Prachar and Darryl Morvan, who also donned the famous No. 16 shirt, as special guests of the club on Sunday.

Former forward, Green, retired at the end of last season, following a 27-year playing career, which saw him play more than 200 games for the Stars.

He also played at Slough, Swindon and Chelmsford. But it was at his home club Oxford where he really made his mark, winning the NIHL Division Two Championship in 2013 and the League and Cup double the following season.

Green, who still lives in Oxford, said: “I’m really looking forward to it, having your shirt retired is a great honour, especially at Oxpens, which means so much to me. I loved playing for Oxford and have so many wonderful memories

“I’ve been back a few times this season to support the boys and it will be good to see so many friends again.

“I’m very appreciative of all of the coaches and players I worked with at the Stars over the years and for the Board for doing this for me and Dan and Darryl.”

Stars director Russell Shrives, said: “As a club we believe it is important to recognise achievements and significant contributions to the Stars and respect our history.

“The No.16 shirt has been worn by three players who gave their all to the Stars and particularly Alan who played a remarkable number of games for us.

“I am sure the supporters will enjoy welcoming the trio back as much as we will, and it will be a special Stars occasion for everybody.”
