Pub’s landlord Jim Hume admitted that him and his wife are “football daft”, and are hugely keen to see ‘Gers fans pop in for a drink before matches.

“Myself and my wife are more than happy to welcome any football supporters in the pub. We’d love to see fans Dream Team fans in regularly, and we’re also more than happy to take in away supporters and welcome them to Berwick.

“We’ll always have something on offer for fans – we’ve already got it planned for the first four home games and hope to keep it running beyond that. We’d also welcome in Berwick fans who are hitting the road, if

“We’re keen to support the club in any way we can. I’m looking forward to getting the new shirt when it’s released, and the Red Lion will no doubt look to sponsor the club in the future.”

The club would like to thank the Red Lion for their support and are delighted to have their support for the coming season!
