Berwick have added Swedish rider Linus Eklof to their roster in place of the injured Kozza Smith for Saturday's Premier League visit of Rye House.

Eklof, 22, joins fellow Swedes Seb Alden, Ludvig Lindgren and the currently-injured Alex Edberg at Shielfield Park.

Team boss Ian Rae said: "With Kozza's broken shoulder going to take some time to heal, we need an injury replacement.

"Linus comes strongly recommended to us by our own Swedish riders."
