PREMIER League Berwick have completed the surprise signing of teenage Dutchman Romano Hummel.

The 17-year-old will take the place of Henning Bager, whose short-term deal with the Bandits has come to an end, subject to approval from the BSPA.

Hummel joins Berwick on the recommendation of fellow countryman and new Berwick team-mate Theo Pijper.

Berwick boss Scott Courtney said: “He’s a very talented young lad with a bright future in our sport.

“He has this all-action style which our fans will love, plus a very good attitude. It goes without saying that he will need time to settle in and adjust to the tracks in the UK but I feel he'll be able to take a look at most places and adapt pretty quickly.

“While this is very exciting news for our club, I feel it's very important to thank Henning Bager for his efforts over the last few weeks. I must emphasise how Henning stepped in to help us out of a tricky situation at very short notice.”
