Berwick Bandits have confirmed that Claus Vissing, Kevin Doolan and Alex Edberg will all be returning to Shielfield for the 2015 season.

Promoter Ryan Anderson has announced that the trio have all committed themselves for the season ahead, which begins in March.

He said: “All three expressed real commitment to us last season and each has been desperate to return for next term – and in fairness these were easy deals to cement.

“We are so pleased to have the trio back, not least as all three played major roles in our performances in the 2014 season. We hope they will do so again in 2015.”

Vissing, 28, from Denmark, had a successful first season at the Bandits in 2014 with an average score of 8.11.

Australian Doolan, 34, was an ever-present last year and seasonal average was 7.24.

Swede Edberg, 23, joined Berwick in 2011 and has raced in black and gold for at least part of each season since then. Appearing in 18 matches in 2014, his average was 4.94.

The returning threesome will join Ben Barker and Thomas Jorgensen in the squad

But 19-year-old Australian recruit Jake Allen’s immigration situation is clouded at present, with discussions ongoing.
