BERWICK have added local man Kieran Douglas to their National Development League side for a second season with the Bullets.
Douglas averaged 4.18 last year and team boss Gary Flint is confident of further progress this season.
Flint said: “We are proud to welcome Kieran back to his local club for another season of NDL racing, and to say he has earned his team place would be an understatement.
“Kieran’s overall improvement as a speedway rider was there for all to see, and I can speak on behalf of the whole promotional team by saying that we were so impressed with his attitude on and off the track.
“Kieran will have his own goals for the upcoming campaign, and we would like him to continue enjoying his racing and to keep up those electric starts!
“It wasn’t that long ago that his career was threatened by a horrific back injury, and it was great to see Kieran establish himself at a very competitive level of racing last season.”
