Long leads the awards charge

Ciaran Long took home a double delight from the Sherfield School Basingstoke Bison End of Season presentation evening, as the Herd brought down the curtain on the 2016/17 campaign.

Long would be the recipient of two awards on the night - clinching the Supporters' British Player of the Year and Players' Player of the Year triumph, after leading the way for the side with 72 points during the season - finding the back of the net on 37 occasions - both of which are senior career highs for the 26-year-old.

Matt Towalski would also be rewarded for his efforts during what turned out to be his final campaign, with the popular 33-year-old being named the Coaches Player of the Year by Doug Sheppard - before announcing his retirement from the sport, having made his senior debut back in the 2000/01 season.

And Rene Jarolin's efforts in front of goal were noticed by the fans, who named the Slovakian their Supporters Player of the season - the 35-year-old registering 62 points during the campaign that once again saw the Bison finish in the top three.

Louise Pengelly-Piper's great efforts off the ice were rewarded by the club as she became the third recipient of the Alan Parrott Outstanding Contribution Award.
