Ladies and gentlemen we are delighted to announce the signings of your new Berwick Bandits number 1 and your new skipper for the 2024 season!
Please give a massive Shielfield Park welcome to Lewi Kerr and a warm welcome back to your new skipper Rory Schlein.
Lewi arrives off the back of his most successful season ever and is relishing the opportunity to wear the number one race suit. Rory made a successful comeback to the sport in 2023 and proved towards the end of last season that with an injury free run he is still very much the real deal and capable of scoring double figures on any track from any position in the team.
Team manager Stewart Dickson commented: “I’m delighted to have acquired the signatures of both Lewi and Rory and firmly believe that with the 38-point team building limit, we have two of the strongest heat leaders in the league in addition to riders who are both capable of improving on their starting averages.
“The side is shaping up well and I am very excited for what’s to come at Shielfield Park in 2024.”
Your Berwick Speedway management team would also like to say a big thank you to the outgoing 2023 captain Leon Flint and number one Thomas Jorgensen who have both opted to spend the upcoming season elsewhere. We wish both Leon and TJ all the best for a safe and enjoyable 2024. 😎🏁
