ICE HOCKEY: Skaife back on board at Stars
10:00am Thursday 15th August 2013 in Sport
Experienced netminder James Skaife has rejoined Oxford City Stars.
Skaife has played for Oxford since the 2006-07 season, but left in the first half of last term for personal reasons.
He faces plenty of competition for a place between the pipes with fellow netminders Ricky Young and Andy Peterson re-signing as Stars prepare to defend their English National League South Division 2 title.
Head coach Darren Elliott said: “This year we are signing three top goalies, as every game is huge and we know they will be pushing each other for the top spot.”
Brothers Nick, Joe and Josh Oliver have also re-signed for Stars.
Nick Oliver will be in his 11th straight season with Oxford and his third as club captain.
The highly-rated Josh Oliver is set for his fourth full season with Stars, while Joe Oliver switched from a forward role to defence last season, and became one of the club’s best attacking defenders.
