Berwick Bandits’ chairman John Anderson and co-promoter Dennis McCleary attended the BSPA (British Speedway Promoters’ Association) AGM at Kenilworth over last weekend and have reported on proceedings, and in what way decisions might affect the border club.
Dennis commented “In an ideal world we would have liked to see some way of cost cutting across the board, but this is not proving easy”.
Berwick Speedway’s Promoter and Chairman John Anderson will head to this week’s BSPA AGM (the BSPA are the British Speedway Promoters’ Association) with an ‘open mind’ – waiting to see how decisions pan out before committing to team building plans and other decisions which will affect the Shielfield Park club for 2015.
Speaking on Monday, Mr Anderson said “There has been a lot of pre-AGM discussion and various clubs and promotions have ideas on plans for next season. However, until the hard and fast decisions are made at annual conference we are a bit in limbo.
BREAKING NEWS from the Berwick Bandits Speedway Club has stated with the early postponement of events in Glasgow today they supporters have been informed they will be having an End of Season get together after all.
The hurriedly arranged event will take place TODAY at the Berwick Rugby Club between the hours of 3-6pm for which the Bandits would like to thank the rugby club greatly for their co-operation.

Anyone seeing the forecast for the Glasgow region for today (Sunday October 26th) will not be surprised to hear this afternoon's match at Ashfield has been postponed due to a waterlogged track.
The meeting - part of a double-header with Workington due up first - was scuppered due to heavy rain yesterday and a solid band of heavy rain sitting over the city till well into the hours of darkness tonight meaning the match referee, Jim McGreggor - on hand at 8am, had no option but to call a halt before anyone even began to think about travel.
The match at Glasgow this Sunday afternoon (19-10-2014) has been postponed due to heavy rain at the track this morning and a forecast of much more foul weather to follow which has left the Tigers' promotion with no option but to postpone.
There is chance the match may be re-staged next Sunday afternoon - October 26th - as part of a double-header also featuring Workington - but this is still very much to be confirmed at this stage.
As soon as a definite date and time can be confirmed we will have it up on the website and the Bandits newsletter.
