Oxford Welcome Former Star James Clarke as Club Ambassador
Former Oxford City Stars player James Clarke has re-joined the Stars as Club Ambassador.
Mr Clarke graduated from the City Stars junior set up and made his debut in 1992 and went on to represent the club hundreds of times, both as a forward and defender.
He played for other clubs, including Telford and Milton Keynes Thunder, but always returned to his home club.
The former player, who is the Director of The Red Corner, a major photocopier and print solutions business based in Witney, is “delighted” to return.
Mr Clarke will support the club’s Board in achieving its aims to grow the Stars commercially, develop more community links and the junior ranks
He said: “The Board have really pushed the club forward and I fully share in the ambition to put Oxford on the ice hockey map.
“My passion is to help grow the club off the ice to support our vision to make the Stars a force to be reckoned with.
“It’s an honour to become Club Ambassador and I am looking forward to using my experience and getting involved at a senior level in key areas that will make a difference.
“I am so pleased to be back home at such an exciting time for the club.”
Stars director James Schall, said: “It’s fantastic to have a club legend back and fully involved at a top level.
“It demonstrates just how much people love the club and that passion never leaves you.
“We are fortunate to have someone who wants to help make a difference, combined with such experience of ice hockey and business on board. I am sure everyone will welcome James back and we wish him every success.”
