Comets' young reserve Nathan Greaves sustained a broken right leg following his Heat 2 crash at Derwent Park tonight.
The 17 year-old Sheffield-born youngster was lying in third place in heat 2 when he slid off as he exited the fourth bend on the third lap and hit the fence.
After being attended to by the medical team at the track he was transferred to West Cumberland Hospital and is expected to be moved through to Carlisle early on Sunday morning where he may need an operation to set his leg, which has suffered a broken tibia and fibula just above the ankle.
Further details will be announced when they are known.
In the meantime, everyone connected with Workington Speedway sends Nathan their very best wishes for a full and speedy recovery.
SUNDAY MORNING UPDATE:
Nathan has been told that he will definitely need an operation to insert some screws and probably a plate into his leg to aid the healing process.
SUNDAY EVENING UPDATE:
Nathan is to undergo an operation at Carlisle Infirmary on Monday to put some metalwork into his broken right leg.
