Workington Comets to parade pairs cup before Berwick match
Last updated at 12:17, Friday, 31 August 2012
Workington Comets will be parading the Premier League Pairs trophy before their home match with Berwick tonight.
Adam Roynon and Rene Bach won the competition at Somerset last week but one of that duo, Roynon, is out of this weekend’s matches as the team’s injury crisis grows.
Workington were already missing Kenny Ingalls and Kyle Howarth and Roynon is now added to that list after crashing riding for Coventry last night. He fell off in his fourth ride and slid off and hit the boards behind the air fence and was taken from the track in an ambulance.
He was going for scans at hospital today and hoped to be in attendance at Derwent Park tonight.
It is unclear what injuries he sustained and how long they could keep him out for.
Comets face a trio of matches this weekend starting with Berwick tonight, beginning at 7.30pm, followed by Leicester at home tomorrow and away on Sunday.
The team has still been unable to find replacements for Howarth and Kenny Ingalls as Jackson and owner Keith Denham are determined to find the right combination of riders but are mindful they have to be confirmed before the deadline of September 15.
Therefore rider replacement will again operate for Ingalls while guests will operate for Howarth and Roynon.
Howarth’s replacements will be Charles Wright tonight, Mason Campton tomorrow and Carl Wilkinson on Sunday. However, Jackson is still searching for guests for Roynon for tomorrow and Sunday.
Meanwhile Ingalls has been released from hospital only two and a half weeks after his horrifying crash against Scunthorpe.
