Danish duo Peter Kildemand and Anders Thomsen are determined to step up their Polish careers after signing Gorzow deals.

Thomsen has agreed a two-year contract at the Edward Jancarz Stadium after moving from First Division team Gdansk, with Peter Kildemand signing for one year after making the switch from relegated Tarnow.

With Gorzow losing skipper Martin Vaculik, the Danes will play a pivotal role in the club’s play-off hopes as they join forces with the likes of world No.2 Bartosz Zmarzlik, Krzysztof Kasprzak and Szymon Wozniak.

This is a club with ambitions to be at the top of the Ekstraliga table. I am pleased that next season I will represent their colours.

Peter Kildemand

Thomsen is delighted to have been handed the step up.

He told the club’s website: “I feel that the time has come to move forward, develop and I think that the Ekstraliga is a good direction.

“I was happy when I received an offer from Gorzow. This is one of the most successful and professional clubs in Poland, so I was sure that I wanted to be a member of this team.

“This is a very good and ambitious club. I know Bartek Zmarzlik and a few other riders, which is also comfortable for me. Stal Gorzow is for me a higher level of speedway.”

Kildemand admits he needed little persuasion to join the club. He said: “It was very easy to make a decision to ride for Gorzow.

“This is a club with ambitions to be at the top of the Ekstraliga table. I am pleased that next season I will represent their colours.”

Elsewhere, world No.3 Freddie Lindgren has put pen to paper on his Czestochowa contract – weeks after the club confirmed he would be returning at their final match.

Wroclaw and Polish rider Damian Drozdz have parted ways after he struggled for track time at the Olympic Stadium this year.

Grudziadz have added Polish juniors Patryk Rolnicki and Marcin Turowski to their 2019 side.

And Zielona Gora have continued their recruitment drive by signing Polish under-21 Norbert Krakowiak.
