Berwick Bandits have moved quickly over to tie up three new faces, confirming their intention to run as a team in 2015.

GB international Ben Barker has been unveiled as the club’s new No1, while 22-year-old Danish rider Thomas Jorgensen also comes in from Scunthorpe. He fills the role vacated by David Bellego, who is on his way to Sheffield.

The third rider set to join Berwick, subject to securing a working visa from his home country, is 19-year-old Jake Allen from Queensland, Australia.

The club says they are working hard to tie up the remaining four places for a 2015 team as soon as is feasible.

Chairman John Anderson confirmed: “We are announcing initially these three new riders and feel that these captures will excite potential sponsors as well as fans of course.

“We can only reiterate that we need the support of a new main sponsor as well as associate sponsors as announced earlier, but by pushing on with progressive team news we feel this can only encourage folks to support and back the 2015 Bandits”
