More Signings Announced At Season Ticket Night ...

The Sherfield School Basingstoke Bison were delighted to announce a double signing to the Herd with the return of netminder Dean Skinns and the re-signing of defenceman Stuart Mogg.

The pair were unveiled to a great reception at this evening's season ticket evening.

Both are Basingstoke-born players, who have come through junior system at the club and also have spent many years with the Herd.

Cageman Skinns is no stranger to the Bison having last played for the team in season 2014/15 and in the previous year was part of the Herd's double winning team and also an All Star goalie.

The 32-year-old last season played for the Guildford Flames, where he returned an 89 per cent save rate and the year before for Milton Keynes he recorded a career high 91 per cent..

In total this will be his ninth season at Basingstoke in three separate spells and was the first Bison netminder to play over 10,000 minutes for the team

Defenceman Mogg is back for a fifth full season and adds even more depth to a great looking D core for the Herd.

He was also part of the Herd's double winning team and also their league championship winning team.

The 22-year-old returned 15 points from 48 league games last season hitting the net three times.

Talking about two more exciting additions to his team, Head Coach Doug Sheppard said: "Dean is an established goalie and gives us two solid netminders. Moggy (Stuart Mogg) takes our defensive core up to five and with him joining, we look very strong in this department."
