And it will be the Cramlington-based Fire Training Services (North East Ltd) whose name will be carried by the Bandits under their FTS logo.

Trevor and James Fenwick of FTS have been closely associated with the club for a number of years - they have been sponsors of new captain Aaron Summers - and welcome the opportunity to step in to support the team this coming season.

FTS provide a fire consultancy service, focusing on the provision of safety training to industry and commerce.

Club co - owner Jamie Courtney said: ’It’s a massive step forward to welcome FTS on board at this relatively early stage and we are very proud to be carrying the title of the ‘FTS Bandits’ in 2020.

“We will be doing our very best to represent all of our sponsors in the most professional way as we always do and we are very excited to bring a very cool brand of the FTS Bandits to the tapes for the new season.

”Team race suits are back and we have got some exciting new additions to add to the merchandise range for the new season too.”

Last year’s title sponsors were Mike Hope of Wooler and the Bandits promotion would like to say a big thank you to Mike, Yvette, Jamie and all of the team at Mike Hope of Wooler Ltd for their tremendous support throughout the 2019 Season.

Co-owner Scott Courtney said: “Title sponsorship is always a season-long commitment and it’s never a given that anyone will commit to more than a season at a time.

“I’d like to say a massive thanks to the Hope family for backing what we do at Berwick Speedway and in many ways we are just continuing to carry forward a vision that they had a massive part in creating.

“I’m very happy to confirm Mike Hope Of Wooler Ltd will continue to back the Bandits in 2020 in the associate sponsorship area of the club.

“We have a few more troops on the ground this year in helping the club generate sponsorship and we will be announcing our sponsors thick and fast as we approach the beginning of a new decade of professional Speedway in Berwick upon Tweed.

“It’s a real pleasure to be working with FTS in 2020 and it’s a pleasure to have their backing ”
