Pan­thers sign an­other Pole to re­place Bro­zowski

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

PAN­THERS have agreed terms to sign an­other Pol­ish rider.

Norbert Kosci­uch will sam­ple Bri­tish speedway for the first time when mak­ing his de­but against Belle Vue at the Show­ground on Fri­day.

The 26 year-old, a star for First League out­fit PSZ Poz­nan in his home­land, will fill the re­serve void left by the sud­den de­par­ture of fel­low coun­try­man Kamil Bro­zowski.

Br­zo­zowski walked out ear­lier this month af­ter only three meet- ings for the club in which he had failed to score a point.

Kosci­uch is in the top 10 of the in­di­vid­ual rank­ings in the sec­ond tier of Pol­ish speedway – ahead of GP reg­u­lar Mag­nus Zet­ter­strom, well-known Elite League star Davey Watt and his new Pan­thers team-mates Krzysztof Buczkowski and Rory Sch­lein.

He has been a handy per­former since mak­ing his de­but for home­town club Leszno as a 17 year-old back in 2001.

He suf­fered badly at the hands of in­jury in the early part of his ca­reer. Kosci­uch suf­fered a split pelvis when col­lid­ing with a trac­tor af­ter be­ing forced onto the cen­tre green dur­ing a race at Pila in 2002 and then suf­fered a bro­ken leg in 2004.

But he has steered clear of in­jury prob­lems since then and has also caught the eye in the sec­ond tier in Swe­den where he races for Allsven­skan side Ornarna.
