"Berwick Rangers Football (Soccer) Team" Berwick-Upon-Tweed Sports & Outdoors Tip by Joe_Green

  Berwick's Home Ground, Shielfield Park

If it's your kind of thing, Berwick has a local football team called Berwick Rangers. They play in the Scottish 2nd Division and are currently 2nd in the league, (that's a promotion spot!!!) and 24th nationally if you want some perspective. It's about £10 to get in which is a scadal, cause I'll be honest this isn't world class football. In fact Scotland only has 2 genuinly major (i.e European Class) sides, Glasgow Celtic and Glasgow Rangers! But this is a proper league side non-the-less and if you brave the weather, you can join another 450 or so fans every other Saturday (when they're playing at home) and cheer them on.

Equipment: Best idea is to bring something warm, unless it's summer. If you've got a football strip, bring that!! (although if you're a novice on who's who in scottish football check with someone who knows first. Turn up in Rangers or Celtic top and immidiately you've signed yourself up as an ally of half the fans and a mortal enemy of the other half). Otherwise, bring yourself, a loud voice, and a tiny bit of football knowledge so you're not totally bored.

Address: Just out of town near the Commercial park.
Directions: (ask, everyone knows where it is, it's always walkable)
Theme: Other
