PANTHERS LOSE BRAD

Friday February 21, 2020
BRADLEY Wilson-Dean has been ruled out of Peterborough’s team ahead of the new season.

Kiwi ace Wilson-Dean has had more surgery on his shoulder after riding through the pain barrier in his home country and the surgeon has told him not to race for six months.

It means the Crendon Panthers are now two riders short of a full team for the new campaign – but co-promoter Carl Johnson insists they have options.

“The first thing we have to do is wish Brad all the very best for a full recovery,” he said.

“It’s a decision he has made in the best interests of his health going forward and naturally we support and fully understand that.

“We have irons in the fire in terms of the final two team members now and we’ll get there. We know what we have left to play with in terms of the points limit for team building regulations.

“There’s a real feel good factor around the place right now and we’re all looking forward to the opening meeting on Sunday March 15 and our 50th anniversary meeting.”

Wilson-Dean admits he is disappointed but has taken the decision to reduce the risk of permanent damage long term.

“It’s been tough for me physically and mentally but I’ve decided to listen to the surgeon,” he said.

“I’d like to thank Peterborough for being so understanding and I want to thank everyone who supports me for their care and understanding.

“I have no doubt in my mind that when I’m back I’ll be fitter and stronger.”

PETERBOROUGH SPEEDWAY are delighted to be supported by Crendon Timber as main team sponsors and City Auction Group as club sponsors.
