Pan­thers will be per­fect for new boy Norbert

The Peterborough Evening Telegraph - - Classifieds -

NEW boy Norbert Kosci­uch reck­ons Pan­thers are the per­fect club for him.

The 26 year-old Pol­ish cap­ture makes his de­but in the crunch clash against play-off ri­vals Belle Vue.

The Manch­ester out­fit will see what they missed out on as they were also chas­ing ‘Norbi’, but he opted for a move to the Show­ground to launch his Bri­tish ca­reer.

Kosci­uch’s man­ager Prze­mys­law Na­siukiewicz said: “Norbert’s con­tract in Eng­land is dic­tated by his de­sire to im­prove and de­velop as a rider. We spoke with Belle Vue too but Norbert wants to come to Peter­bor­ough.

“We think this is a good time to try the Elite League. He has shown good form in the Pol­ish League and has been one of the lead­ing scor­ers in his Swedish club for a few years.

“He is still young enough to go on and de­velop and he has a driv­ing am­bi­tion to get bet­ter and this gives him that chance.

“The con­tract we agreed with Peter­bor­ough is for the best ben­e­fit of both the club and the rider and he is look­ing for­ward to be­ing there for the rest of the sea­son.

“Norbi wants to race in Eng­land and Peter­bor­ough is an ideal place for him.”

Kosci­uch shot to the at­ten­tion of Pan­thers bosses with a se­ries of ex­cel­lent per­for­mances in his home­land this sea­son. He is top of the av­er­ages for his First League club, Poz­nan, and has also done well in Swe­den.

He will jet into the coun­try this morn­ing and will have his own ma­chin­ery here to meet him. Pan­thers sent a van on a 1,000-mile over-land trek to col­lect his equip­ment from his base ear­lier in the week.
