No one can deny that the start to the 2017 season has not been the way the Olympus Marquees Berwick Bandits (Powered by Mike Hope, Wooler) would have scripted had they the chance to do so, but the managerial committee are not losing faith, and indeed hopeing the huge home crowds stick with it too.

Berwick's co-owner Scott Courtney was virtually lost for words, saying: "It's a very frustrating time for us at Berwick at the moment.

Bandits looking to rapidly improve

"The words I want to say would have a bleep machine go into overdrive but we were very, very disappointing tonight although its not because we're not gelling as a team its just we can't gate to save out lives at the moment.
