Since the lockdown, the off-field work at Berwick Rangers has been a ray of warm sunshine in these gloomy times. 

New Board working its socks off, new junior/ladies  connections, top notch social media and comms, big fundraising initiatives, 3 scrumptious new kits, and 18 players signed on including the retention of Kev Waugh, Lewy Barr, Dan Purves, Ali Forster & Euan Smith, the signing of 2 new keepers and several other new signings with perhaps a couple still to come. 

Others will spend a lot more than us so top 6 is the most realistic aim, but the important thing is that I'm hugely looking forward to watching the gers this season. For the last 3 years it was a painful chore.

I'm hoping to make a weekend of Shire's next away game at Berwick whenever that is and what Covid politics are like.

My other half and I want to do the footy on Saturday with a trip to Lindisfarne/Holy Island, call it what you will, the day before. We're thinking of spending a night at Haggerston Castle (your old sponsor) as it's inbetween Berwick and Lindisfarne. What's the feasibility of this regarding public buses etc? Just curious.

Anyways, I miss the Berwick away trips and I hope you guys are all well 😊👍

There is a bus service from Berwick to Holy Island via Haggerston, but it varies according to the tide times cutting off the causeway, so tends to be different each day. 

Borders buses 477. You can see if it is feasible once the fixtures are released. Seems they have taken the timetable offline for now, due to Covid but this was the 2019 timetable to give an idea.

Hoping that it won't be too long now until my new home shirt arrives, the government announce the restart date and the clock watching begins until futty returns once again. 

Meanwhile, the club continues to work hard behind the scenes with new initiatives and people joining the set up.

It's all building up very nicely ready for our big return...............🤞

I take it if england were allowing crowds too football but Scotland wasnt berwick would be allowed too have supporters in the ground. The league woulsnt take exception to this

There's plenty of room at Shielfield Park to achieve 1m+ spacing so I can't see why it would not be acceptable if supporters also wore a face covering?

Any thoughts anyone?

Would have thought Berwick Rangers as SFA members would be under SFA and Lowland league rules/regulations. No way would they be allowed spectators if other clubs at their level aren't. :unsure2:

Not sure they'll mandate face coverings for an outdoor, socially distanced gathering. No probs if they do though. 

Definitely easy enough for Berwick to have a 750 crowd limit. 

As for English/Scottish rules, I guess we might have to adhere to Lowland League regulations AND English law if it is slightly different.
