Extra fixture features Bandits’ young guns

HAVING held back the date in case any early-season events had to be postponed due to inclement weather, Berwick Bandits have announced an addition to their fixture-list this coming Saturday.

The event will see a visit from Dudley Heathens, one of the major clubs contesting the National League, who will be faced by an amalgamated Berwick squad of younger, locally-based riders under the banner of the Border Raiders.

Berwick training officer Gary Flint has been busy setting up the event, and to help balance the books, is offering a special deal of £70 for supporters to sponsor either a rider or a heat.

“If they want to be keen, and sponsor a rider and a heat, we’ll do a special deal on that for only £100,” he added.

To sign up as a sponsor – and encourage younger local riders – potential backers should call Flint on 07597-057413.

Bandits’ boss John Anderson is delighted to be able to be promoting a meeting for younger riders, and will offer a June 15th turnstile price of only £8 for adults, with children of fifteen and under entering free.

“We can only put this match on because of the generosity of our sponsors,” admitted Anderson.

“So we would be grateful to anyone who can help us by getting in touch with Gary Flint.”

“I should also place on record our sincere thanks to Berwick Rangers FC, who are giving us the use of the stadium that night for a peppercorn rent.”
