Witches back in the Fours as Berwick defend their title

BERWICK will defend the Premier League Fours title at Peterborough’s East of England Showground on Sunday July 14.

BERWICK will defend the Premier League Fours title at Peterborough’s East of England Showground on Sunday July 14.

The Bandits secured a dramatic victory in the competition last season with Swedish star Sebastian Alden their hero in the last race, and they are one of eight clubs to do battle again in one of the most popular events on the calendar.

There have been several changes to the Shielfield Park side since their 2012 triumph, but recent signing Edward Kennett is available for the Fours and will take his place at the head of the Bandits’ line-up.

Some of the Premier League’s top star names also feature in the Group A line-up with Ipswich led by Ben Barker, Workington by Richard Lawson – a Peterborough rider as recently as last year – and Sheffield by Simon Stead.

Each group will be contested over eight races, with the top two clubs in each group progressing to the 12-race Final.
