Two years and fifty one weeks ago a Bandit (Matej Kus) scored a maximum, a 20+1 paid on against Redcar, and the next one was last night when Nick Morris took a brilliant 17+1 over the Scunthorpe Scorpions in a tight match that was only settled after Heat 14 (some may say for Berwick in 2017 - "That's early!").
