OXFORD City Stars have parted company with veteran Andy Cox ahead of the new season.

The 32-year-old, who joined for the club in 2001, played a big part in their championship-winning teams in the last two seasons.

But he will not be in the squad which takes part in National League Division 1 this year.

Darren Elliott, Star’s head coach, said: “We want to say a massive thank-you to Andy for his service over the years – he’s been a great servant to the club and the city, and he’s been a huge asset for the team.

“We’ve all known him for a really long time, so it’s sad to say goodbye – but things inevitably have to move on. “We wish Andy all the best for the future.”
