Pushed back to avoid the Speedway of Nations live television event, the Berwick Bandits took the track at 7.30pm to tackle the might of the Somerset Rebels, the side who Berwick pushed so hard on Wednesday but after four heats the Bandits found their task significantly easier leading 16-8 with only Rebel guest, Ben Barker taking a win for the visitors in the fourth.

The best of both

The Bandits management have made the decision to adjust the start time of Saturday’s meeting from 7pm to 7:30pm to enable everyone to watch the Speedway of Nations live on BT Sport and comfortably make start time at Shielfield Park for the Bandits vs. the Somerset Rebels.

The FIM Speedway of Nations airs live on BT Sport 1 from 3:45pm on Saturday and is scheduled to be finished for 7pm.
We will be opening the gates at the regular time of 6pm and parade will commence from 7:15pm.

Get behind your Mike Hope of Wooler Bandits and TeamGB this Saturday!

Fixture Additions

There's two additions to your Berwick "Mike Hope of Wooler Ltd." Bandits (Powered by Clear Energy Consulting) fixture diary...…

Add in Wednesday August 31st at 7pm for Bandits v Scunthorpe in the Championship - yes that's Wednesday as it's been tough to get a mutually agreeable restaging for the call-off.

Also add Berwick v Edinburgh on Saturday September 7th 2019 again at 7.00pm, another restaged fixture.

Bandits miss out on league points at Somerset, losing touch in last three heats.

​The Berwick "Mike Hope of Wooler Ltd." Bandits (Powered by Clear Energy Consulting) gave the Somerset Rebels some major things to think about last night at the Oak Tree Arena, but the home side turned the screws over the final three races to send the disappointed Bandits back to Northumberland without a point to their name when at least a draw was deserved.

The Berwick Bandits roared to an unexpected 10-point victory over the Leicester Lions on Saturday night, but were expecting a much harder match yesterday afternoon back down at the Lions' home den, and early on it certainly proved to be.

Race Day

Tonight’s SGB Championship fixture vs the Leicester Lions will be going ahead as planned.
We’ve had a few light drizzles this morning which has only helped the track surface.
On an ordinary day the track requires around 10 to 12 tanker loads of water so mother nature’s help was much appreciated!

The forecast is looking positive and your Mike Hope of Wooler Bandits are back to full strength tonight and looking to defend an almost 2 year league fixture unbeaten streak at Shielfield Park

Spread the word, bring a friend and enjoy your Speedway!

Bandits at Scorpions on Friday - Welcome back Nikolaj!

The Berwick "Mike Hope of Wooler Ltd." Bandits (Powered by Clear Energy Consulting) travel to the Scunthorpe Scorpions tonight with one mission in mind, to bounce back and lift themselves off the bottom of the current Championship league table, potentially by three or four places, but that is going to be a tough ask.
