OXFORD City Stars have become the latest Oxfordshire side to become affected by the coronavirus outbreak.

Their scheduled opponents tomorrow, Invicta Dynamos, have a player who is self-isolating.

The NIHL had announced last night matches should continue, but given the latest development both clubs decided to call the game off.

A Stars statement said: "The decision has not been taken lightly and was done so following discussions at management level and with players.

"The decision was taken with the best interests of the welfare of everyone involved and our duty of care to players, backroom staff and supporters.

"Ice hockey is of course important to us, but we must put health first in this unprecedent global situation.

"Should the fixture be rearranged tickets will be valid, or refunds will be available.

"This is a fast-moving situation and we will continue to monitor in respect to future fixtures and hope we will be able to continue the season."
