We had a most memorable and enjoyable night, when, travelling from near and far, the “elder statespeoples” of Oxford City Stars Ice Hockey Club, from the previous millenium gathered here, on Saturday night, 3rd August 2019, to relax and reminisce.
Oh! What fun it was! … and they were ALL so wonderful.
We thank Kim Filby for this photograph of most of them …
