ROSS Miller has committed to Oxford City Stars for a fifth campaign.

The Welsh netminder posted a 90 per cent save average last season, his best yet in Oxford colours.

Stars head coach Simon Anderson told the club website: “Millsy is a massive part of the City Stars. He’s a great guy in the room and committed to his trade.

“Having him in net gives us a chance in every game. He makes all the saves you would expect, and throws in many more on top that most goaltenders wouldn’t get close to.

“It was clear last year that we were not strong enough in defence, and that’s something myself and Shane [Moore, head of hockey operations] will be addressing in preparation for the new season.

“I’m excited to see what Ross can do with a strengthened defensive core in front him.”

Miller added: “I love Oxford, the guys in the room, the fans, the club.

“Oxford City Stars has been a big part of my life for the past few seasons, and I really believe in what the club is trying to build.

“It will be an exciting season again, and I hope we can start off quickly out of the blocks, gel as a group and start the campaign well.

“Simon has shared his plans with me and I had no worries about signing back.”

The Stars have also welcomed Nikki Duffin as a sports therapist for the 2023/24 season, having previously held a role with those services at Basingstoke Bison.
