NEWCASTLE have called up Ricky Wells to guest for the injured Matthew Wethers in today’s (Sunday) home clash with Berwick.
The Bandits had intended to operate rider replacement for Leon Flint at Brough Park, with the local favourite racing for Great Britain in the Under-23 Team Championship semi-final at Brokstedt, Germany – alongside Tom Brennan, Drew Kemp, Jordan Palin and Dan Gilkes.
However, the visitors’ team plans will also depend on their injuries elsewhere as Jye Etheridge and Dany Gappmaier were both withdrawn from their home defeat against Glasgow on Saturday.
NEWCASTLE: Ben Barker, Adam Roynon, Connor Mountain, Max Clegg, Ricky Wells, James Wright, Archie Freeman.
BERWICK (TBC): Nikolaj B Jakobsen, Leon Flint R/R, Dany Gappmaier, Jye Etheridge, Aaron Summers, Kasper Andersen, Kyle Bickley.
