Berwick Speedway have confirmed that their next home meeting against north east rivals Newcastle will be screened live on Sky TV.

The meeting between the Bandits and the Diamonds will be switched to Shielfield Park on Tuesday, May 21.

The Premier League fixture will be broadcast to over 20 countries, including Poland, Sweden, Australia and Denmark, who are all prominent in the sport, as part of the Sky TV package.

Club promoter John Anderson said: “Obviously, we are tremendously proud to have Sky TV coming to Shielfield Park.

“This is a reward, I believe, for our continuing programme of track and ground improvements and it is another indication of how much the sport of speedway can bring to Berwick-upon-Tweed as we are awarded these events.”
