Stars sign Slovakian goal machine!
Oxford City Stars have bolstered its squad with the signing of Slovakian import Michal Oravec.
The 37-year-old forward has already been a big hit in England for the past six seasons.
Last season he bagged 18 goals and 22 assists for Chelmsford Chieftains.
The signing sees Oravec reunited with Stars’ Head Coach Kenny Redmond who previously had the veteran in his squad at Bracknell Hornets.
Michal said: “Oxford City Stars have really progressed in recent years and I’m really pleased to have signed for a club that is going places.
“Oxford were the team to beat last season and I’m looking forward to the challenge and helping the club continue to achieve success.”
Kenny said: “Michael is a great team player. He has good vision, can control the puck and has a real knack of making special passes at the right time that creates goals.
“Having worked with him before I pounced at the chance to sign him.
“I’m sure Michal will be a top player for us and hopefully will inspire us to win some silverware.”
Oravec who comes from Zvolen originally came to the UK to play for Solihull in 2006 and later returned home before coming back to the UK in 2012 to join Streatham Redskins.
