Oxford City Stars have bolstered the squad for the 2019/20 campaign with the return of Mike Whillock.
Head Coach Simon Anderson moved quickly to snap up the forward after Mike’s planned move abroad did not take place.
The 26-year-old is a familiar face at Oxpens have previously played for the Stars for several seasons.
Mike said: “It’s always an honour play for Oxford and looking at the roster I’m excited to see it all come together starting next week in training. We have a passionate core of local guys which always rubs off on the players coming into the club. We will be fighting hard every day in this league, which suits us down to the ground. I’m looking forward to getting to work with the boys.”
Simon said: “Mike approached me last week to let me know his intended travel plans had changed. I was happy with my roster, but happy to add some depth in what will be a tough league. Mike signing also gives us a little bit competition for spots in our roster and will help us when we run into injuries or suspension trouble.
“Mike was one of my best players at the beginning of last season in Sweden. He has always had that hard-working gritty side to his game and last season in Sweden he added a little scoring touch and always worked hard on his skills daily. I am looking for Mike to bring that form in a Stars uniform and if he does, he is capable of being one of the top guys not only in our team, but the league.”
