Berwick Rangers Football Club are delighted to announce that the penultimate home Lowland League game of the season against Edinburgh University AFC will be a ‘Community Club Day’.
The club’s two supporters’ organisations – Berwick Rangers Supporters Club and Berwick Rangers Supporters Trust – have agreed to cover the cost of expected gate receipts from the day, meaning that turnstiles will be open FREE of charge for all spectators with donation buckets towards the 1881 Fund present for fans to donate should they wish.
We’re happy that Berwick Juniors have been hugely supportive of the ‘Community Club Day’ concept and are encouraging as many of their young players along as possible to watch the Dream Team – all wearing their club tracksuits.
We also hope that you can encourage as many of your friends, family members and lapsed Berwick Rangers supporters along to the game.
As well as Berwick Juniors, we will also be making the effort to invite all local sports teams in the town and surrounding North Northumberland and Berwickshire areas to the game.
We’re working on a number of ideas for the day to ensure it’s a great experience for the family. With the turnstiles being free of charge, we will be asking for fans and attendees to donate into the 1881 Fund at the game based on how much they may have enjoyed the family day out. Whether that be £1, £5 or whatever they see appropriate.
We’re also thrilled to say that with a larger than usual crowd expected, Berwick Bandits Speedway – who have been in charge of the catering since the start of this season – plan to make a donation into the 1881 Fund.
For Bandits fans, attending this match will be an opportunity to check out the new widened track – which is expected to be completed by the game – as anticipation builds with just a month to go until the start of their season.
Our outcome is simple: to attract as many people to the match. This is the first of a number of initiatives we will be testing before the end of the season. We’re looking to have hospitality within the ground and hopefully entertainment.
We have set ourselves an attendance target of 600 and are confident of achieving this with your support.
Watch out for more details over the next two weeks. We will also be looking at a special thank you for fans who are current season ticket holders.
