Poole owner Matt Ford believes he may have recruited “the next Maciej Janowski” after signing World Under-21 finalist Kacper Woryna for 2018.

The Pole will be the first name on Pirates’ team sheet after enjoying a superb season for Rybnik in the Polish Ekstraliga. He also finished second in Monday’s International Ekstraliga Individual Championship in Gdansk.

Woryna raced for Coventry last season, averaging 4.65, which converted to 6.51 under this year’s team-building rules.

Kacper has something about him which leads me to think that he could be the next Maciej Janowski.

Matt Ford

The 19-year-old follows in grandfather Antoni’s footsteps after he raced for Poole in 1973 and 1974. And Ford insists he has been monitoring the Pole’s progress with interest.

He said: "I have been keeping close tabs on Kacper's development for a while now and he has made significant improvement this season especially.  Anyone who takes the time to look at the Polish scores will see that for themselves.

“If all things go to plan and there are no curve balls at this winter's annual conference, he will be the first name on our 2018 team sheet.

"I don't think there can be a rider any keener to ride for Poole than Kacper. He has told me time and time again that he has always dreamed of being a Poole Pirate, and up until the point when he joined Coventry, he always rode with a skull and crossbones on his race suit.

"I feel he could well have a big future ahead of him and he will be ready to come back to the UK next season, having gained some limited experience during his spell with Coventry. 

“Kacper has something about him which leads me to think that he could be the next Maciej Janowski."
