BARKER HURT IN BANDITS WIN
BERWICK’S new signing Ben Barker was taken to hospital with a collar-bone injury after crashing out of his Bandits debut meeting on Saturday.
Barker crashed in Heat 13 of the Border outfit’s 52-38 Tyne-Tweed Trophy win over Newcastle at Shielfield Park.
Berwick promoter John Anderson said: “To have Ben crash out of the meeting and end up in hospital was a devastating blow to all of us.
“We can only hope the news is better than we suspect and we can get him back in action soon, but the doctors will let us know what’s what and until then we’ll just have to cover his absence as best we can.”
