Bandit Ashworth in good spirits

BERWICK BANDIT Ricky Ashworth is continuing to make progress in hospital after sustaining head injuries whilst riding for the team at Scunthorpe last August.

After spending 91 days in a coma, Ashworth is still on medication and suffering jaw mycolonic spasms caused by his brain injury. Doctors are unsure as to whether Ricky will be left with these or not. His family report that he is usually in good spirits, however, and can’t wait to thank everyone for their support as soon as he can.

The Berwick Speedway Official Supporters’ Club AGM is being held at the Black & Gold social club on Sunday, 3pm.
