Berwick Rangers Supporters Trust has purchased a set of twelve jackets for the ballboys at Shielfield. The purpose was twofold. With winter arriving, a warm garment was required plus, it reflected better on the club if all the youngsters were kitted out in similar fashion. The boys are all members of Berwick Juniors F.C. but underlining their status as Berwick Rangers ballboys, all the jackets, supplied by Trust corporate member Fantasy Prints, have the initials ‘BRFC’ on the back.
In addition to the regular ballboys, two under eight teams from the Juniors were guests of the club at Shielfield last Saturday, December 6th, when Berwick beat Clyde 4-0. As well as watching the game, the party was shown around the ground and met Berwick Rangers players and staff. Berwick Rangers invite any youth group or organisation–it does not have to be sports related–to attend a league match of its choice free of charge and also be given the chance to meet players and have a look ‘behind the scenes’.
