Peterborough Panthers have signed a second rider for the 2015 Premier League campaign.

Adam Roynon was today (December 6) unveiled by Panthers chief Ged Rathbone as the second rider to be riding for the city club next year. Ulrich Ostergaard was the first.

The 26 year-old managed a century of points (including bonuses) after being drafted in by Peterborough for the second half of their 2014 season.

And Rathbone has high hopes of a high-scoring, injury-free campaign for his latest capture next year.

He said: “I want to go into battle with seven riders who are going to put Peterborough Speedway first.

“That certainly applies to Adam who has been offered contracts by other clubs, but was so keen to return to Peterborough.

“We all know the dreadful injuries that Adam has suffered during his career and my only hope is that he can have an injury-free season in 2015.

“If that happens there is no reason why Adam can’t put more than a point on his starting average and get himself back towards the levels he has been at in the past.

“We saw plenty to like about several of his performances after he arrived during last season and we feel he deserves the opportunity to be in from the start next year.”

Rathbone and co-promoter Trevor Swales hope to close in on more signings in the next few days.
