Following concern from the management of the Berwick Bandits surrounding the unexpected extended period on the sidelines of exciting Czech racer, Hynek Stichauer they have moved to bring in a temporary injury replacement, who will debut next week against the Glasgow Tigers.

The border side have recruited Swedish rider 20-year-old Alex Edberg to replace Stichauer from next weekend, albeit on a temporary basis.

Despite his tender years, the busy Edberg races regularly across northern Europe and has represented clubs in Sweden (Hammerby, Ikaros Smederna, Tigrarna and Griparna – three currently!), Denmark (Fjelsted), Finland (KeittioPiste Kuusankoski, Haukat/Royals Lahti) and Poland (KMZ Lublin).

“We must emphasise that Alex is coming in as an ‘injury replacement’ and we have the option of returning to our regular 1-7 line-up once the Czech Republic doctors have given Hynek final clearance” confirmed co-promoter John Anderson.

“This will be a better option than using guests or the rider-replacement regulation each week – and of course, we’re hoping Alex Edberg proves to be a revelation in the UK.”

Alexander (Alex as he prefers to be known) has been riding speedway since he was 15 and has come on leaps and bounds as one of his nations’ most promising juniors.

He was an integral part of the all conquering Ikaros Smederna squad in the 2010 Swedish 1st division and also played his part in Hammerby's promotion to the Swedish elite league where he has none other than 2010 world champion Tomasz Gollob as a team mate.

Alex is no stranger to British shores after being part of the Team Viking touring side in 2009 and most recently in April 2011 where he impressed at Newcastle and Sheffield.

He claims to love riding on big tracks and is looking forward to wearing the black and gold of the Bandits.

Alex said: "It is an honour to be racing for Berwick, I have heard so much about the clubs history and how friendly the supporters are and can't wait to get on track for them."
