OXFORD City Stars began a new era with a victory and a defeat.

Last week, Greig Box Turnbull stepped down as a director of the ice hockey side.

The former Oxford United managing director relinquished his 50 per cent stake in the club, meaning Jo Mundy is the sole shareholder at Oxpens.

Box Turnbull joined the Stars board after leaving the U’s in 2017.

Stars began the season with a 6-4 win over Slough Jets and made it two wins from two with a 4-3 victory away to Romford Raiders.

Xander Wardlaw put Stars 1-0 up against Raiders, before being pegged back.

Josh Abbott then made it 2-1, before Carter Lloyd added a third.

Raiders fought back to 3-3, with Joe Edwards sealing the win for Stars.

In the reverse fixture against Jets, Stars fell to a 5-2 defeat.

The visitors took the lead after just 25 seconds, through Christian Mohr.

Brad Watchorn made it 1-1 with 25 minutes played, before Adam Erskine resorted the Jets’ lead.

Tyton Cathcart made it 3-1 on 41 minutes, but Jake Williams pulled it back to 3-2 eight minutes later.

However, Mohr added two for Jets as the visitors ran out winners.

Stars face an away clash against Streatham on Sunday, face-off at 6.45pm.
