THE Basingstoke Bison have added even more firepower to their line-up for the coming season with the re-signing of top British forward Adam Harding.

The 26-year-old joined the Herd in mid season during the last campaign from the Swindon Wildcats and proved to be a key member of the team.

The Cardiff-born forward finished the year with 26 points from 17 league games for the Bison and scored his first ever Herd hat-trick in the overtime win at the Hive against the Bracknell Bees in March.

Talking about his latest big re-signing a delighted Bison player/coach Ashley Tait said: “Bringing Hards (Adam Harding) back is great news for the club.

“He was a great pick up for us last year and gave us some much needed depth. He contributes at both ends of the ice and I think he’ll continue to get better and better.”
