Peterborough Panthers meeting postponed

Peterborough Panthers’ Premiership trip to Wolverhampton tonight has been postponed because of heavy rain. (June 10).

Monday, 10th June 2019, 8:35 am
Paul Starke was due to ride for Panthers at Wolverhampton.

Panthers would have travelled to Monmore Green without three of their regular riders due to a combination of injuries and international commitments.

Skipper Hans Andersen attempted a comeback from his shoulder blade injury in the Grand Prix qualifier at Glasgow on Saturday (June 8), but had to withdraw after just two rides.

Meanwhile Josh Bates remained on the sidelines following his crash at Leicester last month, confirming to boss Carl Johnson on Saturday night that he was still not fit, while Charles Wright is in Abensberg, Germany to compete in the final GP qualifier.
