It's Miller Time...again!

The Sheffield School Basingstoke Bison are delighted to announce that Joe Miller will be returning to the club after agreeing terms following his release from the Telford Tigers.

It will be a case of unfinished business for the Welshman, who initially left the Herd midway through our double-winning 2013-14 season to join the Shropshire outfit.

The popular forward will make a welcome return to the Basingstoke Arena, where he enjoyed much success during a two-and-a-half year stay - scoring 161 points of which 83 were goals.

"The moment it seemed as though Joe might be available", Bison Director of Hockey Doug Sheppard said "I was on the phone and now couldn't be happier to welcome him back.

"We know exactly what Joe will bring to the team, both on and off the ice, as our push for the EPIHL title and playoffs continues.

"I can wait for our fan base to welcome him back when the Flames come to town on Saturday in our only game of the weekend."

Joe's red own-and-loan jersey is now available on a first-come, first-served basis for 150. Email for your chance to be on his jersey for the rest of the campaign.
