Peterborough Panthers bosses have come up with a Posh offer . . . in a bid to attract football fans to speedway.

Readypower Panthers chiefs are offering discounted admission to their Premier League clash against Workington at the East of England Showground on Sunday (May 10, 6.30pm start).

The deal is open to Posh season-ticket holders from the 2014-15 season who can gain entry at Alwalton for just £10 upon production of the relevant documentation at the turnstiles.

Panthers promoter Ged Rathbone said: “We are working hard to build up our fan-base and attract new faces to the Showground.

“There are many people in and around the city who have never sampled live speedway.

“I’m confident that if we can get them along to the Showground we can get them hooked.

“Posh’s season came to an end last weekend and I’m sure there will be plenty of supporters looking for a sporting fix. Hopefully they will take advantage of this offer.”

Panthers have enjoyed a sparkling start to their Premier League campaign with a hat-trick of wins.

They have collected every available league point to date after bagging big away wins at Redcar and Plymouth either side of a smart home success against Rye House.
