Oxford United and the Oxford City Stars have re-ignited the Oxfordshire United partnership.
The ice hockey club’s captain Josh Florey and Assistant Captain Alex Staples visited United’s training ground yesterday to watch the U23’s match and to re-launch the long-standing partnership between the clubs. They were joined by United’s young stars Kyran Lofthouse, Fabio Sole, Kevin Berkoe and Fabio Lopes.
As part of the partnership The Stars have put the Oxford United in the Community logo on the back of their new home shirts to help celebrate our charity’s 30-year anniversary. The Stars have returned to playing in yellow and blue for their new campaign in the National Ice Hockey League Division One South.
The Oxford Junior Stars U9s and U11s teams will be our flag bearers on Saturday when we host Rochdale. Plus, the club will also host a ‘stick and puck’ shoot out in the family stand for U’s fans to try their hand at hockey.
