Danish champion Niels-Kristian Iversen is set to end his seven-year stay at Polish Ekstraliga side Gorzow.

The club confirmed they will be parting company with the Esbjerg-born ace at the end of the season.

Despite a tough year in the FIM Speedway Grand Prix series, Iversen still finished ninth in the Ekstraliga averages on 2.060 and has played a key role in two league title wins.

I say thank you to the club and the fans, who have always been with me in good and bad times for all these years.

He missed their play-off campaign this year as he battles to recover from a broken shoulder in time for the QBE Insurance Australian SGP on October 28.

But Iversen parts with Gorzow on good terms. He told the club’s official website: "I say thank you to the club and the fans, who have always been with me in good and bad times for all these years.

“I see this parting in a very emotional way, but I also feel that the time has come when my career needs change to continue to develop.”

Gorzow president Ireneusz Maciej Zmora added: “Niels changes club colours. We part in friendship. I am grateful to Niels for his years spent at Stal Gorzow.

“In that time, we celebrated twice winning the Polish championship, once winning silver and twice winning the bronze medal. It is at our club that Niels has achieved his greatest success in the Grand Prix, winning the bronze medal in the individual World Championships.

“It was a very good time, with many successes. But just like everything, this period has come to an end. It's time to change.

“I wish Niels well in the forthcoming period – unwavering passion for speedway, perseverance and, above all, the health needed to achieve further sporting success.”
