Great Britain racer Steve Worrall pledged “I’ll be back stronger than before” after breaking his leg at Scunthorpe on Friday night.

The Scorpions and Belle Vue skipper, who has also signed for Polish Second Division club Rawicz, suffered the injury after reportedly being run hard by Danish rider Jonas B Andersen in heat 10 of Scunthorpe’s 58-32 SGB Championship victory over Redcar. Andersen was excluded from the heat.

Thanks for all the kind messages of support. I’ll be back stronger than before.

Steve Worrall

Worrall had high hopes for 2018 after a sensational 2017 season, which saw him star for GB in the Monster Energy FIM Speedway World Cup and the World Games in Wroclaw.

He’s awaiting news on how much time he faces on the sidelines, but the St Helens-born man is gutted to be laid up after a winter of hard work.

He tweeted: “Biggest season to date and this happens. So much time, effort and money put in. To race against some selfish desperate idiot!

“Unsure on a recovery time but both tibia and fibula are fractured just under the knee. Find out more information on Monday once the swelling has reduced. Thanks for all the kind messages of support. I’ll be back stronger than before.”

Scunthorpe boss Rob Godfrey was devastated to lose his skipper. He said: “Stevie is not just the best rider in the league, but he is an amazing captain. He has done so much to help generate the tremendous team spirit we have, and I’m just so gutted for him.”

The injury makes Worrall a serious doubt for GB’s Monster Energy FIM Speedway of Nations campaign. As a Belle Vue star, he would have been one of the favourites for selection with Lions opening their campaign at the National Speedway Stadium in Manchester on June 5.
