IN A bid to increase attendances at Shielfield, Bandits fans will be offered reduced admission for the fifth meeting in a row at Shielfield next weekend.

The club’s major shareholder, John Anderson, is continuing with the scheme of reduced admission prices in a bid to help families enjoy a night at the skids without busting their household budget.

Admission to next Saturday’s meeting (September 29th) is being kept at £10, with children under 16 accompanied by a supervising adult being admitted free.

Anderson explained: “We have to be sensible and realise, especially in this area, that money is a commodity to be looked after carefully, and a family of four cannot always afford to come to speedway on a weekly basis.

“With our ‘kids free and £10 for everyone else’ deal we are hoping that ‘word of mouth’ will continue to spread the news and Berwick speedway on a Saturday night will be seen as a value for money, as well as spectacularly-thrilling evening’s entertainment.

“We are under no illusions. Attracting support for any form of entertainment is not easy. But we have been delighted with the response so far at our past three meetings, when reduced admission charges were applied.

“We are in the entertainment business, and we want to attract people who will make a Saturday night out at Shielfield their summer hobby – this week, in a fortnight and all next year.”
