A Huge Thank you

The Sherfield School Basingstoke Bison would like to officially put on record their thanks to Graham Bell who has stepped aside from his duties with the team.

Graham himself announced earlier in the year he would have to step back from the club he loves and with the new season underway we feel now is the right time to officially thank Graham for his loyal service to the club over the years.

Graham is one of those people who took on so many jobs and seamlessly they were done. He launched the original Bison TV and remained the voice of Bison TV on itís re-launch. As Head of Media Relations he upped the Teamís exposure to levels previously not seen. He also produced the outstanding match night programme, Stampede! There were so many other jobs that Graham did and itís only now heís had to step back that the club are remembering just how many jobs he did.

Graham brought a tremendous enthusiasm with him to his role at the Bison and a huge amount of professionalism. These attributes have seen him be very successful at his full time job and recent promotion has increased the demands placed on his time meaning that Graham had to take the very difficult decision of stepping back from his duties with the Bison.

Bison Director of Hockey Doug Sheppard said; ďI was lucky and thankful to have someone with the expertise and professionalism of Graham on my team when I returned to the Bison. He took the club to a new level and we hope to keep those standards up. Itís great to know Iíll still have Graham to lean on behind the scenes. Thanks Graham, sit back and enjoy the games!Ē

John Neville of Planet Ice said of Graham; ďThanks very much to Graham for everything over the years. Youíve been a real professional and Iím proud to say Iíve made a lifelong friend from what started as a working relationship.Ē

The Bison are busy creating a team of people to take on the huge work load that Graham shouldered but weíd like to thank him for his service to the club over many years. Weíre sure youíll all join us in making Graham very welcome in his new role as a spectator from here on.
