OXFORD City Stars head coach Darren Elliott admitted celebrations after his side’s South Division 2 Cup success have only just died down, writes MARK EDWARDS.

Victory over Bristol Pitbulls sparked wild scenes at Oxford Ice Rink, with more than 750 people watching on.

Elliott said the celebrations made all the hard work worthwhile.

“I’ve only just come back down to earth,” he said.

“It was just all unreal. The on-ice celebrations with champagne, it was just amazing.

“I think we must have stayed in the changing rooms for around two hours afterwards lapping it all up.

“Days like that don’t come around very often so of course you have to make the most of them.”

Stars now face a crunch clash with South Division 2 league leaders Slough Jets on Sunday night, knowing that victory will send them top of the table and in with a great chance of landing back-to-back league titles.

“It’s great to win the cup, but the league title is the one we all really want and hopefully we can round off a really memorable year with wins in our final two games,” he added.
