Stricken Berwick Bandit Ricky Ashworth is showing ‘encouraging signs’ according to his family.

The Berwick Bandits rider has been unconscious since suffering a head injury in an accident at Scunthorpe almost two weeks ago.

Bandits’ co-promoter Dennis McCleary spoke with the Ashworth family on Tuesday and they have confirmed Ricky has undergone some wake-up trials with encouraging results.

Further the highly-trained staff at Hull Royal Infirmary are attempting to wean him from the specialised medication he has required since his hospitalisation following the accident at Scunthorpe on August 2nd.

Ashworth is still unconscious and under the intensive care of the staff at Hull. His family are obviously heartened by these changes, and want to praise the Infirmary staff, and thank the many speedway people who have sent messages of encouragement at this time.
