Today’s the day

After a early-evening downpour washed out the action at Scunthorpe last night Workington trio Antti Vuolas, Tate Zischke and Celina Liebmann now make their British debuts at Shielfield Park tonight, 7pm.

We’ve woken up to a crisp, sunny morning here in the Borders and the forecast shows a bright, if typically slightly nippy March day as the Jewson Bandits, powered by Keenwood Karpets, welcome Workington Comets in the Border Trophy first leg.

Local fans get their first chance to see winter signings Lewis Kerr, Drew Kemp, Bastian Borke, Freddy Hodder and Danyon Hume in Berwick colours while we are expecting to welcome a good number of Comets fans as they return to the second tier of British speedway since their silverware-strewn 2018 campaign.

Online tickets remain available until 7pm tonight berwickspeedway.com/tickets while cash-only turnstiles are open tonight. It’s £20 for adults, £18 concessions. Accompanied under-16s are admitted free.

Season pass holders can collect them from the Black and Gold between 3pm and 5pm this afternoon or the stadium Box Office when the gates open at 6pm.

It’s been a long winter but it’s now just over 12 hours before Lewis and Danyon line-up against Craig Cook and Claus Vissing  in heat one of the 2024 season.

The clock’s ticking!
