MAJOR KENNETT BLOW

Saturday June 02, 2018
PETERBOROUGH’S injury jinx has struck again – with new signing Edward Kennett ruled out before even turning a wheel for the club.

Kennett agreed a deal with the T.Balfe Construction Panthers last week to replace Emil Grondal, but he has now suffered a broken arm during his World Longtrack semi-final in the Czech Republic.

The Great Britain star has been in touch with Panthers bosses, and has had a double fracture which is to be operated on when he returns to the UK.

With Kennett yet to appear for the Panthers, they will revert to their previous team declaration whilst considering their next move.

Promoter Ged Rathbone said: “It’s absolutely devastating news, we were very much looking forward to having Edward in the team, and naturally we wish him all the best.

“With him not having ridden for us yet there would be no facility for him, so we have to revert to our declaration including Emil Grondal and look at our options again.

“The management are already in talks over what to do next, hopefully we’ll be able to pull another rabbit out of the hat, but our thoughts are very much with Edward and the other injured lads.”
