Community Club Day & Edinburgh Uni: Preview

The ‘Gers will hope to put on a show for what is anticipated to be a bumper crowd tomorrow, as the club welcomes 14th placed Edinburgh University AFC on its Community Club Day.

With free admission for all, fans can look forward to family entertainment prior to kick-off, a visit from BBC Scotland camera crew for popular show ‘A View from the Terrace’, as well as a pop-up bar in the ground.

All the information on the day can be found here.


After a much-improved performance in a Broadwood Stadium stalemate last weekend, Ian Little will be hoping his side can begin to establish momentum in his side’s penultimate home league match of the season.

The ‘Gers will see as winnable, with Uni currently sat two places lower than the Black and Gold army in the table.

Berwick’s hopes are boosted by the managerial team’s report of a clean bill of health for the playing squad, meaning Ian Little and co should have a full squad to select from.


Daniel Graves will assume control of the tie, and will be assisted by both Rhys Struthers & Blair White on the day.


Free for all!

Please note that a bucket collection will be in operation, with all funds generated being added directly to the 1881 Fund. More info on the fund can be found here.

Matchball sponsor this week is Gavin Marshall, a Norfolk-based supporter who stumbled into following the ‘Gers whilst visiting the town. Ahead of the visit, Gavin shared:

“My family and I have been coming up to Berwick-upon-Tweed for the last four years, and we’ve fallen in love with the area. It has some beautiful places to visit.

“I knew Berwick Rangers were the only English side to play in the Scottish league, and that made Shielfield Park a must-visit when we first came four years back.

“I had the pleasure of enjoying a live football match with my children – a first for them, and now it’s great to be able to share the experience of ball sponsorship with them. It’s safe to say they all have a love for the ‘Gers too!”

The club are looking forward to welcoming Gavin and his family this weekend, and will do our utmost to ensure they all enjoy a special day!
