Chinn and Wiggins leave the Herd
27th of April 2012
It is with regret that the Basingstoke Bison have to announce that Club Captain Nick Chin and power forward Chris Wiggins will not be returning to Basingstoke next season.

Head Coach Doug Sheppard said, “I had spoken to both Nicky and Chris earlier in the week and had expressed my interest in both players. Unfortunately they decided it would be in their best interest to move to a different team. I respect their decisions and wish them both the best of luck with their new club.

Over the next few weeks Doug will be revealing further players for the team that will hopefully meet our fans expectations whilst continuing to build a programme that identifies and nurtures young talent by providing appropriate opportunities”.

Planet Ice Group Managing Director, John Neville commented, “Both Nicky & Chris have given great service to the Bison for the past 3 EPL seasons but it was inevitable and disappointing that some of last season’s players wouldn’t pull on a Bison jersey. On behalf of the Basingstoke Bison I would like to thank them for the entertainment they have provided to our fans and I’m sure they will receive a warm welcome when they return to Basingstoke playing for their new teams in the EPL”.

Doug has announced that there will be a “meet the coach evening” next Wednesday 2nd May where he will announce the first of his player signings and when season tickets details will be announced and can be purchased as the Herd begin the build-up to the 2012/13 season. The event will commence at 7.30pm in the ice rink bar.
