Sponsorship deal for Bandits
Berwick Bandits have confirmed a new sponsorship deal for their 50th season, which begins in March.
Berwick-based Olympus Marquees, who backed the club in 2016, will be joined by Mike Hope Honda of Wooler. Mike and Yvette Hope are, of course, former promoters at the club, who ran speedway at Berrington Lough and then oversaw the return to Shielfield Park in 1996.
Co-promoter Scott Courtney said: “I’m thrilled to confirm the deal has been done with Olympus Marquees to continue its invaluable support with the club for the 2017 season. Steven and Joanne and all the Olympus team are not only great friends of the club, but a driving force behind the scenes, and I am very proud for the Bandits to represent their company in the local area and nationally throughout the season.
“As if the 50th season wasn’t already special enough, we get the chance to welcome back Mike and Yvette Hope. It’s our honour to see them back at Shielfield park in 2017.”
