SWINDON ROBINS: Ritchings expected to make full recovery after release from hospital - Rossiter

Swindon Advertiser: Darryl Ritchings has been released from John Radcliffe Hospital Darryl Ritchings has been released from John Radcliffe Hospital

DARRYL Ritchings is expected to make a “full, happy recovery” following his release from hospital, according to Swindon Robins manager Alun Rossiter.

Reserve Ritchings suffered bruising on the brain and a broken ankle following a horrific crash at the Abbey Stadium on April 3 and was placed under sedation at John Radcliffe Hospital in Oxford for a fortnight, but he was brought round last Thursday and arrived back home at 6.30pm last night.

Rossiter told the Advertiser: “He got home at 6.30pm last night. I asked the question ‘is everything okay?’ Because he’s young and so fit, they reckon that’s why he’s made a full recovery after such a horrendous injury.

“They reckon he’s got a heartbeat the same as Usain Bolt. He’s had a few plates put in his ankle and he’s plastered back up. That’s going to be a bit of time but he’s just got to take it easy, take his time and they envisage a full, happy recovery, which is great for everybody.”
