Woodward aims for Polish deal
Eastbourne captain Cameron Woodward is reeling from the loss of a “dream” contract in Poland.
The Aussie has been told his average is too high to ride for Gdansk in the second tier.
Woodward hoped to top up his Elite League earnings with regular outings in the world’s strongest speedway nation.
However a personnel change on the Baltic coast means his average no longer fits. He is now hoping to attract a deal elsewhere in Poland.
Woodward said: “It is a bit of a sore point. I had a dream contract lined up, then their No.1 that my average fitted with left and signed for someone else.
“That put me 0.04 over the threshold and that was it. I lost a decent contract.”
The departure of Tomasz Chrzanowski to Grudziadz and arrival of Robert Miskowiak in his place meant Woodward’s eight-point average no longer fitted the line-up.
Woodward is back in England and preparing for the new Eagles season, which gets under way when Belle Vue visit on Saturday, March 23.
