Poole owner backed Polish pair Kacper Woryna and Mateusz Szczepaniak to play a vital role in their quest for SGB Premiership glory in 2018.

The duo join Brady Kurtz and Josh Grajczonek at Wimborne Road, with Woryna on a bargain 4.65 average and Szczepaniak returning to Pirates on a 4.54 figure. He last appeared in the UK with King’s Lynn in 2012 and most recently raced for Poole in 2011.

Woryna finished fourth in this year’s FIM Speedway Under-21 World Championship, while Szczepaniak topped the Polish First Division averages and qualified for the GP Challenge in Togliatti.

With Woryna, who raced for Coventry in 2016, and Szczepaniak both better riders than when they last raced in Britain, Ford is backing both to play a key role in Poole’s title bid.

He said: "Kacper is an up and coming rider who I think will be perfectly suited to the Poole set-up. We're expecting big things from him, while Mateusz brings bags of European racing experience to the club and that knowledge and know-how will be crucial as we look to secure another league title.

"With four riders now confirmed, our team is really starting to take shape and the prospect of watching these guys race together is hugely exciting."
