HAPPY HARRIS RETURNS

Tuesday December 24, 2019
BRITISH icon Chris Harris will make a belated return to Peterborough next season.

The move means Harris, who has over 100 Grand Prix appearances under his belt, will finally link up with Panthers a year later than planned.

He helped Ipswich to the Premiership Grand Final last season after being ruled out of Peterborough’s plans in January.

Now he’s pleased to be back - and reunited with his former Coventry boss Colin Pratt at the Showground.

He said: “I’m looking forward to next year, especially being at Peterborough and working with Colin Pratt again.

“Colin brought me to Coventry and put his faith in me when others didn’t.

“When they wanted to sack me there years ago, he said, ‘no, he’s staying’. It’s thanks to him I got where I am.

“He got people around me that I needed and got me on the map.”

Pratt is pleased to be working with the former British Grand Prix winner once again.

“I’m really pleased to bring Chris back to the club,” he said. “I know he was destined to be here last season and it didn’t happen in the end, but that’s history now and we move on.

“Chris has always had a liking for the Peterborough track, he’s always performed well here and I feel his current average is not a true average.

“We met up last week and had a long talk about things, and I’ve always said Chris rides better when he feels settled. He rode for me for so many years at Coventry, and over that time he never dreamed of moving.

“He’s a really good club man and I believe he still has several good years left in him. With him being based in the Midlands as well it makes sense, and I’m sure our supporters will be delighted to finally see him back in our colours.”
