Oxford City Stars has signed experienced forward Shannon Taylor.
The 31-year-old has signed for the 2022/23 season, after a prolonged period out of the game.
He has previously played at Oxford on two occasions, scoring 20 goals for the Stars across the two campaigns. He has also played for clubs including Swindon Wildcats and Bristol Pitbulls.
Taylor said: “I am delighted to be returning to Oxford. The opportunity to play for such a great club and the chance to play for Simon again was too big of a lure for keep me away any longer.
“The time I spent off the ice created a huge hunger and I am looking to channel that and bring my experience to the team in front of the net and importantly to lead from the front by being a leader both on and off the ice.
“I can’t wait to join up with the squad and deliver great season for the fans.”
Simon Anderson said: “Shannon contacted me and after a long conversation it was apparent that he was eager to get back into the game after some time out.
"I’ve known Shannon a long time and coached him in three other teams in my career and my gut feeling was to give him the opportunity he is craving.
“His experience will be crucial for us and Shannon has produced some great numbers in his career at some decent levels. He is a former GB junior international and has played at higher league levels than this.
"I feel Shannon will come in be a good example to our younger players and has the potential to surprise any doubters with his performances I’m excited to see Shannon in yellow.”
