Louis heaps praise on his side after Diamonds draw

Berwick Bandits 48 Ipswich Witches 45 Newcastle Diamonds 45 Ipswich Witches 45

Three points from their northern tour left Witches director of speedway Chris Louis more than satisfied.

The Suffolk side fought back from their Thursday night Premier League home defeat to Newcastle to pick up a point at Berwick on Saturday night and then grab two more points against Newcastle on Sunday.

“We were excellent,” said Louis after the Newcastle draw.

“I felt we should have got a few more points at Berwick and we made such a sloppy start there. But here we got everything we deserved.

“Ben Barker has been fantastic all weekend and it was his pass on Ritchie Worrall in the final race that got us the draw.”
