Stars shone bright as Oxford snap up big D-Man Sam Shone
Oxford City Stars have
swooped to sign up Bristol Pitbulls’ defenceman Sam Shone.
Sam, 28, signed for the Stars
this week – following his brother Olly from Bristol to Oxpens.
He joins the Stars after
seven consecutive seasons at the Pitbulls.
Sam said: “I’m really happy to sign for Oxford, it’s a great set up and
atmosphere here, the crowd are awesome
“Obviously it’s nice to team
up with my brother again and some guys I have played with in juniors.
“When Simon called me, it was
an easy decision, I’m looking forward to getting started, meeting the rest of
the team and playing hockey for the Stars.”
Head Coach Simon Anderson
said: “When I first approached Sam his enthusiasm to play in a Stars Jersey was
clear to me.
“He really wanted to improve
his game and test himself at a higher level.
“Sam is another big body for
us on our blue line.
“He moves the puck well and
is very agile for a big guy.
“Sam will be pivotal in how we want to play and I am sure he will grab this opportunity with both hands.”
