‘Gers welcome new Club Doctor!

Dr Pettifer is based at Amble Health Practice

Dr Pettifer is based at Amble Health Centre.

The club are delighted to confirm the arrival of new Club Doctor, Dr Matthew Pettifer who is based near Amble in Northumberland.

Dr Pettifer has been a partner in the Amble Health Centre since 1995, and is an established trainer of Specialist GP Registrars. Dr Pettifer runs the new baby health check clinic in Amble. His activities outside the Practice are largely centred around his family and their many sporting activities.

The club would also like to place on record their thanks to Dr Alan Fortune of Alnwick, who had been our official club Doctor for ten years and a good friend to Berwick Rangers.

Dr Fortune has stepped down from his role due to retirement. We hope that Dr Fortune will still make some ‘Gers games throughout the upcoming season.

Alan had also been the Speedway Doctor for some 30 years at both Berrington and Shielfield, and has always given a professional and dedicated service to both clubs. The club would like to wish Alan, Maureen and their family a happy retirement.
