Trust Sponsorship Sees Free Admission To Arbroath Game
There will be free admission for spectators to Berwick Rangers’ Ladbrokes League 2 game versus Arbroath at Shielfield on Saturday, August 29th, 2015 ( k.o. 3:00 p.m. ). The match is being sponsored by Berwick Rangers Supporters Trust and free entry is part of the sponsorship arrangement between the Trust and the football club.
The last time the Trust sponsored a game was in December, 2013 when Peterhead were the visitors and it attracted the highest home crowd of the 2013-14 season. As on that occasion, Trust members will be taking a bucket collection at the Arbroath fixture inviting spectators to make a donation, the Trust deciding how any monies collected should be used to assist Berwick Rangers F.C.
Last season, after a flying start to the campaign, Arbroath did enough to qualify for the promotion play offs. In the final game of the regular season they inflicted a 5-0 hiding on Berwick at Gayfield. So there is plenty of incentive for Rangers’ new look team to put on a good performance and avenge that humiliation.
