Bison TV goes on hiatus

Supporters of the Sherfield School Basingstoke Bison will have noticed the lack of highlights production from Bison TV after the weekend's 3-2 victory over the Milton Keynes Lightning.

Since joining the club during the 2013/14 season Adrian Parsons has helped turned Bison TV into the envy of clubs across the country and world with a mixture of weekly highlights and socially engaging videos.

His work has been spread across the globe, drawing a variety of hockey fans in, most notably with the coverage of the bench clearing brawl against Peterborough in 2014, which was picked up by websites across the globe.

Adrian also helped bring the action to local TV across the south of England on both the BBC and ITV showcasing our game to potential new supporters, as well as documenting the success we have achieved over the past few seasons, making the Party on the Pad series of videos a keepsake for all our fanbase.

The EIHA also called upon Adrian to help with the training of officials during the past few years providing incidents for use in seminars and training guidelines.

All associated with the Sherfield School Basingstoke Bison would like to thank Adrian for his efforts over the past four years, we certainly created plenty of great memories together and we wish him well for the future.

Bison TV will now be going on hiatus.
