The Sherfield School Basingstoke Bison have just completed the treble! In 2017/18 the Bison won the Britton Conference League and Play-offs before adding the coveted National Final Four Play-off Title as well.
The Bison are the main sporting attraction in Basingstoke, regularly drawing on thousand plus crowds to cheer on Basingstoke’s ice hockey team.
Following the disbanding of the Slough Jets as a professional ice hockey team I rediscovered my love of the sport with the Basingstoke Bison, despite the 75 mile round trip every week for a “home” game.
The Bison welcomed me into the club and I provide cover match night annoucing for the team. I also write for “The Stampede”, the weekly programme, I write the weekend reviews including detailed reports on home games and I write and publish the club’s press releases.

The Slough Jets were an Ice Hockey team playing in the English Premier Ice Hockey League, the second tier of British Ice Hockey. The Jets won the EPIHL play-offs in 2008 and 2010 and played their home games at Absolutely Ice on Saturdays (occasionally Sundays) from September to April.

In 2014 the decision was taken to close the Slough Jets as a professional sports team, ending 29 years of proud history. The development club continues to this day. July 2014 saw a charity game held reuniting Jets legends from 1986-2014 raising over £4000 for SPICE and the Lymphoma Association
