Fans urged to support Darryl
10:57am Wednesday 9th April 2014 in Sport
SWINDON Robins fans will be given the chance to show their support for injured rider Darryl Ritchings at tomorrow night's meeting with Belle Vue.
A collection will take place at the meeting for the Purton racer, who remains in Oxford's John Radcliffe Hospital with head injures following his crash in last week's match against Coventry which also left him with a broken ankle. Money raised from the 50/50 draw will also be added to the total.
Supporters will also have the opportunity to sign a book sending best wishes to Darryl, which will be forwarded to the rider and his family.
Promoter and team manager Alun Rossiter said: "We've already had several people asking how they can help, and this is a chance for everyone to assist a great cause. Our thoughts and prayers are with Darryl and his family, and I'm sure the Swindon public will be happy to support him in this way."
The Robins Supporters Club will be organising the collection and the book will be available to sign at their stand.
