Thank You And Good Luck ...

It is with sadness that the Trane sponsored Basingstoke Bison confirm that forward Danny Ingoldsby and defenceman Chris Cooke will not be returning to the roster for the 2019 / 20 season.

Both players joined the Bison roster last summer and were integral members of the squad but due to starting a new job and enhanced work commitments unfortunately Danny cannot commit the time required to play in the NIHL National division.

Defenceman, Chris has been released from the roster .

Coach Tait commented, “As with every season in hockey players come and go – I’d like to thank both Danny and Chris for the commitment and effort they gave the club during my inaugural season in charge of the Herd and we wish them both all the best for the future.”

The club would like to thank Danny's Own & loan “Home” jersey sponsor Marie Nicholson and Chris’s Own & loan “Home” jersey sponsor Paul, Angela & Louise Mears for their support last season.
