Bison make Chong move
27th of April 2011
The Basingstoke Bison are delighted to announce the signing of Liam Chong for the 2011/12 English Premier League season.

The 19-year old forward is no stranger to Bison supporters, after making two appearances for the side during the previous season - scoring a goal in the process.

Chong spent last season playing for the Invicta Dynamos in the ENL - where the Chelmsford born player scored 54 points in 37 games - including 24 goals.

He was also part of the Great Britain Under 20's side that collected bronze in the Division one World Championships.

Chong has also previously played in America at the Northwood School, Lake Placid, New Year, where he was an integral part of their midget hockey squad.

Director of Ice Hockey Steve Moria is pleased to be welcoming Liam back to the Bison on a full-time basis.

"Liam is a big talent who possesses all of the necessary tools to succeed. He is strong, fast and hungry to play. He will be a player that Bison fans will immediately appreciate. I am happy that he chose to sign for us!"

Following his signing for the Herd, Liam said.

"After playing with the Bison a couple of times last season, I'm excited to be asked back. I am really looking forward to the upcoming season and hope my contribution will bring success to the club."

The signings are coming thick-and-fast in Basingstoke so keep your eyes peeled to the Bison website in the coming weeks to see who's the next player to be joining the Stampede.
