Drew Kemp and Jye Etheridge had the perfect answer to the critics as they engineered Berwick’s first win in Cleveland for nine years.

Having been criticised for their performance in the defeat by Poole put the visitors ahead with a heat three 5-1  and went on to score 20 points between them, earning heat 15 rides in the process.

Solid backing came from skipper Rory Schlein and reserve Bastian Borke who once again earned most of his points the hard way and could even have joined Kemp on 11 points had he not shed a chain while comfortably second.

The teams meet again at Shielfield Park on Saturday night.
