London & South East Branch aka BROOTS
Welcome to the London & South East Supporters Club page, we are by and large, all from East London, although we do have people from Hastings and Aylesbury too.
The BRFC LSC was founded during 2005, born out of an idea by Joe Regan and Jon Sewell, who thought it would be good if we was to follow a small Scottish team, naturally it had to be Berwick, being English and all that (not to mention it is the quickest one to get to from London!).
Our first trip to Berwick was for the match against Montrose in February 2006, which ended 1-1, we brought eight people up from London for that game. Joe and Jon also made another trip that season, deciding the night before to drive up for a game against Cowdenbeath!
We have always been made to feel welcome by the locals and we do look forward to coming up for a game. Since then, we have tried to get to at least one game a season, bringing up between four and fourteen people.
The two standout highlights of our Berwick trips are six of us travelling up by car for the Arbroath title game in 2007 and seeing Berwick lift some silverware, this trip was put together at very short notice, so to get six people to commit was a good achievement. Also, In January 2011, fourteen of us made the trip to watch the game against Celtic. This was our largest following and even though we lost, we all had a great time in Berwick.
During the 2011/12 season we attended the 2-2 draw, against Stranraer on January 14th and we still aim to make it to an away game
In 2013/14 we attended the seasons final game watching a valiant Berwick defeat at the hands of runaway league champions Peterhead who edged the game 2-1.
