All coming together, Screm!     Another positive blog from uber-fan Sarah on club website too, urging supporters to support the promotion, keep speedway alive in Berwick-on-Tweed. 

And the news from our West Coast bretherin today just echos that message even more!

It shows the seriousness in the decline of speedway in the UK in general.  The powers that be, have hindered the product rather than improved it, again this year they have tinkered around the edges, rather than taking " the bull by the horns" and drastically changing the product.   Sarah I admire your unstinting support for your team, but fans will no longer blindly follow their local team for the sake of it.  Speedway is a relatively ex;pensive sport especially for a family, more so in a cash strapped area in which Berwick Bandits rely on, Berwick & The Borders.  So, unless the product is massively improved I fear the worst for speedway in general, and more so for a club that is cash strapped.  AS you know, for the first time in over 20 years I missed a lot of meetings last season, in large very much to do with the level of entertainment on track, which apart from just a few meetings was poor.  The Promotion must do a lot better than 2018 as I fear the demise will be even greater.

Nobody wants to lose speedway in Berwick, but unless the product drastically improves, I fear for it's demise.

Revisiting the watch mans previous comments, I wonder how many Comets fans would now be happier to have the option to pay £20 for an evenings racing?

Nah I'm sorry. I don't buy the whole "use it or lose it" speedway is way beyond point now. The diehards don't cut it anymore. Promoters need to work on the sport and make it worth the admission and the only way they're going to do that is working on the overall presentation and quality. If it's not there, the sport will die regardless. 

 

 

The sport is absolutely on its arse and scaremongering has never saved a club and it never will.

So what would you do to improve the product?

Well done to the Bandits Management, giving the season ticket holders they’re promised meetings despite Workington’s demise

SHOWTIME 2019! 

We can confirm that the 2019 season at Shielfield Park will kick off with Press & Practice evening on Friday the 29th of March at 6pm but the real fun begins 24 hours later! 

Competitive action gets underway with the 2019 Bordernapolis event on Saturday the 30th of March at 7pm! 

Due to the devastating news that the Workington Comets are unable to take their place in the SGB Championship division in 2019, Bandits management have agreed that the Bordernapolis event will now be included in your 15 match season pass alongside scheduled Championship, KO Cup and Championship Shield matches. 

Everyone at Berwick Bandits Speedway Club sends their condolences to all involved at Workington Comets Speedway Club. Workington’s unfortunate situation brings home the very real challenges the sport is facing to survive and sustain in the current climate. We hope to one day renew our border rivalry with the 2018 SGB treble Champions but for now all thoughts are with the Promotion, Management, Riders, Mechanics, Fans and sponsors. 

There has never been a more important time to back your local Speedway club!
