Berwick Bandits rider Alex Edberg has undergone surgery on his back and collarbone on Monday following a crash at Shielfield Park on Saturday.

The 20-year-old Swede was injured after clipping wheels with an opponent, and suffered a broken collarbone, cracked ribs and a punctured lung.

He initially joined the Bandits in May as cover for Hynek Stichauer, but earned a permanent deal last month.

Edberg is expected to make a full recovery within 12 weeks.
