OXFORD City Stars have added one of the NIHL’s leading lights – Matt Lawday – to its roster for their forthcoming campaign.

The 26-year-old, who joins from Solent Devils, is known as a sniper, with more than 150 goals his name, 19 of them last season.

He previously played for Swindon, Basingstoke, Wight-link, Slough and Bracknell.

“I am looking forward to playing for a professional organisation like Oxford City Stars,” he said.

“The fans are great which always helps boost the momentum of the game.

“I could see the determination last year and that’s a team I want to be a part of.

“The team has a lot of talent and potential – I can’t wait to contribute to that.”

Stars’ head coach Kenny Redmond said: “Having coached Matt at Conference level, he knows and likes the systems we will play.

“I’ve no doubt his scoring streak will make him popular with the fans.”
