    I believe it's his IQ - but he missed out the decimal point

    Surely they hold his registration - nothing to do with contracts.

    Possible Odsal news

    that's got to be a positive

    Possible Odsal news

    I fear people are remembering the Odsal of the late 80s and 90s. Went to a rugby match there this summer and the place is falling apart, terraces weed strewn and crumbling concrete. Without rugby I cannot see how Bradford Council can possibly keep it open. Speedway's only hope would be to piggy back stock cars but I suspect they would prefer a tarmac track rather than shale.

    Not sure what level of the English football pyramid Berwick would have to join but assume that it's something like the Northern Alliance. I would respectfully suggest that is something way below Lowland League - or East of Scotland League for that matter - level and might be quite a hard sell to players and the public alike. There must be a way around the grant system as the likes of Newport, Swansea, Cardiff and Wrexham have, over the years, not seemed to struggle from being in the English Football League. Think the important focus of the plan is that Shielfield could become a genuine asset and focal point for sport in Berwick rather than a football ground which also stages speedway.

    2020 NL Season

    To be fair they had to make those journeys to get a ride anyway; at least they can do it as a team next season. There is a decent crop of riders from the NJL who, hopefully, can form the basis of the new Devils.

    Very true - Clear Energy donated the two season passes they received as part of their sponsor package and they were raffled off, from memory, at the Edinburgh and Glasgow Championship Shield meetings.

    busy weekend coming up at at Shielfield - taken from the club's Facebook feed. On Saturday the 21st of December we will be opening the Bandits Track shop and Snack bar at Shielfield Park Stadium from 10am until 1pm. We’ve had lots of requests for merchandise items before Christmas so we’re opening the doors for anyone who would like to purchase something special for their nearest and dearest. Season Passes will also be on sale as well as 2020 season gift vouchers, merchandise and a very special selection of unique Berwick Bandits memorabilia! Don’t forget, we’re partying this Friday the 20th of December from 7:30pm in the Black and Gold! Entry is free and the entertainment will be provided by club legend Mike Hope and his road show!

    Last year not necessarily the same as this year ... or next year. Things change, complaints are noted, action taken where possible

    Hopefully. It's something the club is actively looking into. There was a theory that with your 10% discount you could buy a top quality bandits' jacket from the savings you've made from buying an early-bird season pass ... and still have enough left to treat Sarah to cheeseburger and chips a couple of times

    Seems a strange interpretation of the post AGM statement. The only obvious mention of north and south is to work out who faces who twice and who faces who once. Talk is of the top six teams in an extended playoff - not top three of each section. Suppose we'll see when the regs are finally published.
