ACTING Ipswich Witches skipper Tobi says that the club should now start to look rather than down after three home Elite League speedway wins in a row.

And the engaging German is giving his full backing to tonight's twenty20 cricket match in Chantry Park, Ipswich in aid of paralysed former Witch Kim Jansson (start 6pm).

He is riding in meetings associated with his national championship and cannot make it to England for tonight's bat and ball session.

Kroner said: “We should be okay now and be able to forget about any wooden spoon situations.

“There is the chance for us to show what a good unit we have become and although the championship play-offs look a long way away we can move ourselves up the table.”

Cricket is rarely played in Germany, but Kroner has watched a couple of games in England as his sponsors Steve Smith plays for an Ipswich-based club.

“I have gone to watch on a couple of occasions and enjoyed it,” said Kroner. “It would have been nice to play, but it cannot be.

“When you know the rules cricket is a good game, and we all want to raise some money for Kim Jansson.

“You never know when these situations will happen and it is very important to help when we can. I am sure there will be a good turn out and everybody will enjoy a great evening.”

Admission is free and the entrance to the ground is on the London Road side of Chantry Park just before the main park gates opposite Robin Drive.

There will be an auction featuring a signed Ipswich Town shirt, an original painting of Mark Loram in speedway action by Jim Blanchard, an original penny black stamp donated by Geoff Bugg - plus a draw.

And long-term Witches fan Terry Adams is donating a �1 for every run scored in this evening's game.

The Witches are next in action on the track on Thursday when they entertain Peterborough at Foxhall Stadium.
