NICHOLLS MAKES PANTHERS SWITCH

Seven-time British champion Scott Nicholls is on his way to Peterborough as Panthers make a double change.

Seven-time British champion Scott Nicholls is on his way to Peterborough as Panthers make a double change.

The Ipswich-born man has been standing in for the injured Jacob Thorssell at Wolverhampton in the early weeks of the season.

But with Thorssell back on a bike, he has been restored to the Monmore Green line-up, while Nick Morris is also due to return from injury.

It’s never nice releasing riders, but we had to do something. We have given the guys a chance but we have got to the stage where it couldn’t continue.

Colin Pratt

Panthers wasted no time in moving for Nicholls and he joins former British Under-21 champion Josh Bates in making the switch to the East of England Showground. Lasse Bjerre and Ben Barker make way.

Panthers co-promoter Colin Pratt stressed changes had to be made in order to keep the club in the race for the play-offs.

Pratt said: “It’s never nice releasing riders, but we had to do something. We have given the guys a chance but we have got to the stage where it couldn’t continue.

“I’m confident the Peterborough fans will be happy to see we are trying to improve things. Scotty remains a class act and Josh always gives his all. He’s a battler.

“Hopefully we can now see some improvement in results. I inherited a team when I came into the club, and sometimes tough decisions have to be made.”

Nicholls and Bates will both be in the side for the visit of Poole on Thursday, and then for the Bank Holiday Monday derby against King’s Lynn.

Nicholls said: "I was delighted when Peterborough came in. It has been a quick turnaround but I was there last season and it is where my career began back in 1994, so it is cool. I am looking forward to it."
