Bandits close to finalising fixtures for season

Berwick Bandits have a Saturday off this weekend, but are now close to finalising their remaining fixtures until the season ends next month.

“We are definitely racing again here at Shielfield Park against Glasgow Tigers on Saturday 29 and again on October 13 against Redcar Bears,” confirmed co-promoter Dennis McCleary.

“We also must contest away matches with the same two clubs – so we’ll be at Redcar next Thursday (27th) and at Glasgow’s Ashfield circuit on Sunday 30.

“Should we be successful over these elimination ties, we would have a Cup Final for the Premier League Challenge Trophy – against as-yet-unknown opposition – to round off the season, but that would depend on our results.

If we don’t eliminate the Tigers and Bears, the Shielfield season would end on October 13th.

“There is still one other outstanding away league match, which has to be staged over at Derwent Park in Workington, but they are as yet unable to give us a date for this final Premier League match.

“However, as all speedway fixtures have to be completed by the end of October, we’ll no doubt be learning fairly soon when they can fit us in.”
