Berwick Bandits cruised to victory in the Premier League at Shielfield Park last night.

The home side led from start to finish against weakened opponents to win by an unexpectedly high margin.

Team manager John Anderson said: “I don’t know any one who would have bet money on us scoring anything like that against what is a very good side and we know Glasgow are generally better than that, but credit to out lads who rode out a hard race to get exactly what was deserved.

“Having said that our visitors were sadly very weak at reserve with their guests and with their pair scoring three opposed to our paid 22 instantly highlights a major difference.”

Berwick’s next home fixture is against Peterborough Panthers on Wednesday July 8 (7.30pm) in a meeting that will be screened live on Sky Sports.
