Pan­thers have high hopes for new rider

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Sport -

SPEEDWAY: Pan­thers team boss Trevor Swales has high hopes for lat­est sign­ing Norbert Kosci­uch.

The 26 year-old Pol­ish ace will make his Peter­bor­ough de­but against Belle Vue at the Show­ground on Fri­day – the first part of a crunch play-off dou­ble ei­ther side of the week­end.

Kosci­uch has been drafted in to re­place coun­try­man Kamil Br­zo­zowski at re­serve. Br­zo­zowski walked out on the club af­ter fail­ing to score a point in three meet­ings.

But much bet­ter things are ex­pected of the new ar­rival who has shone in his home coun­try this term.

Swales said: “We have been mon­i­tor­ing Norbert’s per­for­mances in Poland and have spo­ken to peo­ple over there about him.

“We be­lieve he will be a good sign­ing and he is com­mit­ted to crack­ing it over here.

“He will be rid­ing his own equip­ment and if pro­fes­sion­al­ism equals points, he will score by the bucket-load.”

Pan­thers then face sec­ond­placed Lake­side Ham­mers on Mon­day when the Sky TV cam­eras make their first visit of the sea­son to the city track.

They could have a run of five suc­ces­sive home meet­ings with clashes against Poole (Jul 8), Swin­don (Jul 16) and Wolver­hamp­ton (Jul 22) all con­firmed for next month, al­though an away fix­ture could be slot­ted into their sched­ule.
