SPECTACULAR TAKES SHAPE

Tuesday February 16, 2021
PETERBOROUGH captain Ulrich Ostergaard has finalised the exciting line-up for his '10 Year Spectacular'.

The popular Danish star has attracted a high-calibre field to the East of England Showground for his season-opening testimonial on Sunday, March 13 (2pm).

Australian international Rory Schlein is the latest big name to be snapped up for the event along with World Under 21 Championship silver medalist Anders Thomsen, who enjoyed a a brief spell in Panthers colours last season.

They join the previously announced Hans Andersen, Niels Kristian Iversen, Kenneth Bjerre, Mads Korneliussen, Krzysztof Buczkowski, Piotr Swiderski, Danny King and Kenneth Hansen in a fine cast for the individual event.

The field is completed by Ostergaard himself and five of his Peterborough team-mates of 2016 - Nikolaj Busk Jakobsen, Nicklas Porsing, Michael Palm Toft, Simon Lambert and Emil Grondal.

In addition to the mouth-watering 16-man main event, there will also be a series of reserve races involving Panthers' new British ace Tom Perry.

He will do battle with club asset Danny Phillips (who is set to race for Premier League rivals Newcastle this term) and a trio of exciting young Danish talents, Jesper Sorgaard, Tobias Thomsen and Peter Karger.

"I'm so happy with such a great list of riders for my special day," said Ostergaard.

"It is great to be able to bring together my current team-mates, many riders I raced with in the past and some of the great friends I've made during my career.

"I feel sure it is going to be a fantastic meeting . . . and we still have one big surprise up our sleeve."

Ostergaard is planning one more major announcement in the coming days - and it is one not to be missed!
