Berwick Bandits have signed former Team Great Britain star David Howe who is set to make his debut on Saturday at Workington Comets.

Local rider Liam Carr makes way for Howe in a move which Bandits’ co-promoter Scott Courtney had admitted has not been an easy one to make.

He said that Grand Prix experience, Team GB experience, an impressive domestic league record is what Howe will bring to the club

And Courtney admitted that Liam Carr’s confidence has taken a battering with poor early season results.

He added: “Nobody could’ve predicted how things have panned out thus far but fans can be sure that the best interests of Berwick speedway are our top priority.”
