Bison host the second leg of local Derby

The yearly tough and hard hitting local derby between the Basingstoke Bison Ladies and Basingstoke Bears is happening this Bank holiday monday!

 It should be a good game that is being played for pride. Over the years, the bison have dominated but the bears have pulled the score closer together over the last year. 
The bears have quite a few hidden talents like Julie Saint and Samantha Vernon but the Bison will remain solid with the full squad which includes a few ex-bears in our squad, like Jasmine Long and Tanya Morgan....

This is going to be a exciting and high paced game, so be prepared for edge of your seat action!
