BERWICK have announced the signing of Jye Etheridge for a fifth season in the club’s colours.
Etheridge will be back with the Bandits in 2022 after his scoring was dented by injury this year, with the result that club co-owner Jamie Courtney says he could start the new campaign in a reserve berth.
Courtney said: “Jye didn’t have the season he had hoped and prepared so hard for, but he showed amazing resilience to fight back to fitness after some terrible injuries and I believe 2022 will be a big one in his career.
“To work his way to No.1 in the team was a feather in his cap, and Jye also selflessly took on the captain’s role to allow Aaron Summers time to focus on getting his own form back, which deserves a massive amount of credit.
“We are delighted with how this side is coming together and there is a very real possibility that ‘Reggie’ could start things off in the reserve berth!”
