JAKE Florey has become the latest player to commit to Oxford City Stars, extending his stay to a fifth season.

The defenceman, who first signed for the Oxpens Road side in 2013, joins the likes of Darren Elliott and netminder Mark Duffy in staying on.

Florey is keen to get back on the ice as Stars prepare for life in National League Division 2 in 2017/18.

He said: “I’m excited to be back playing for Oxford this year, and to face different teams and challenges following the re-shuffling of the league structure.

“The whole set-up makes the Stars an exciting organisation to play for, and I can’t wait to get back training.”

Head coach Kenny Redmond said: “I’m delighted to have Jake Florey returning.

“He’s a solid defenceman with a lot of talent, and he’s enthusiastic to improve and will play a major role for us in the season ahead.”
