Update on the injury to Ben Wood.
Ben was Challenging for a 50/50 ball with Ashington’s David Edwards. There was no intent from either player to cause injury.
Ben has been to hospital and has broke his ankle, he will return to see a specialist and probably get a pin put in it. At the moment he has been sent home with a cast on and told to keep his weight off it.
This is the second bad injury Ben has received within two months. Back in February, again coming on as a substitute he injured his knee and has just started to play again.
Needless to say he will miss the rest of the season, all at West Auckland wish Ben a speedy recovery.
