The Bracknell Bees would like to wish Josh Smith, Rupert Quiney and Luka Basic, three members of last season Bees squad, all the best following the news of their signing elsewhere for the upcoming season.

Quiney joined the Bees part way through last season and picked up an unfortunate injury after only two games for the club but remained a regular face around The Hive for the remainder of the season.  Rupert has signed for the Milton Keynes Thunder and you can read their press release HERE

Luka Basic netted twenty-two goals and twenty-nine assists for fifty-one points last season for the Bees having joined in the summer.   The Slovenian forward finished the season as the Bees leading points and goal scorer and has opted to return home to Slovenia for HDD Jesenice and you can read the clubs press release HERE

Josh Smith has made his way up through the Bracknell Ice Hockey Club ranks over the years, through the U16 Stingers, U18 Drones, Hornets and Bees and leaves the club after three seasons, and over 100 games, with the Bees.   Josh has made the move along the M3 to join local rivals the Basingstoke Bison, you can read more on the move HERE

The Bracknell Bees thank Josh, Rupert and Lukas for their efforts and time with the team and everyone within the club wish them all the best in their future activities.
