New Berwick Bandits No 1 Aaron Summers, who was with Glasgow Tigers last season, will ride in Simon Stead’s farewell meeting at Owlerton next week.

Sheffield Tigers’ title winners Lasse Bjerre and Todd Kurtz have also accepted the invitation for Sunday, March 25.

Stead said: “I’m delighted to include both Lasse and TK because they are good lads who did a fantastic job for the club last season when we won the championship.

“They were both new to Sheffield and went about their business in a really professional manner.

“Aaron is a good rider and I’m sure he’ll do a good job at Berwick. He’s got a lot of experience now.”
