Peterborough Speedway are delighted to announce Ulrich Ostergaard as their captain for the 2014 season.

Ostergaard will lead the Panthers into their new era of Premier League competition as he makes his return to the club after recently racing at this level for Redcar.

The Dane joins a host of fellow countrymen to take the club captaincy, including the likes of Hans Andersen, Niels-Kristian Iversen, Nicki Pedersen and Kenneth Bjerre in the top flight.

Ostergaard’s first meeting as skipper will be the first leg of the East of England Cup as the Panthers face Rye House at the Showground on Tuesday March 18.

The team will be going through their paces the previous day at press and practice, with a fans’ forum and party night taking place at the Showground on Friday March 14.
