Workington Speedway fans will be disappointed to hear that last years No.1, Josh Grajczonek, won't be returning to the side in 2015.
The Comets management met with Josh before he returned home in October and he made it clear that whilst he would love to come back to Workington in 2015 he really needed to press on with his career and commit to riding in Poland. This meant that until these deals were sorted he could not commit to Premier League racing.
At the time he thought it would be only a few weeks to sort out the details but, as of last night, Josh is no further on with what he is intending to do in 2015.
With this is mind, and the need to complete our 2015 side, the Comets management took the decision to move on without Josh.
Steve Whitehead, Co-Promoter, spoke to Josh last night to explain the situation and how disappointed we all are that Josh will not be returning next season.
Josh fully understood the Comets position and said: "I'm disappointed too, but I just can't commit to anything in the Premier League at the moment, the situation in Poland is still up in the air with clubs pulling out of leagues and people are unsure of what will happen, so I really need to wait until this is sorted.
"I'm sorry it's come to this, and I don't want any hard feelings. You guys and the fans have been awesome and I wanna thank you for this season, it's been great."
Whilst the Comets promotion are bitterly disappointed, we respect his right to choose his own pathway and his ambition to ride at the top level of World Speedway.
He will be a huge miss to the Premier League but we fully understand his ambition and he goes with our best wishes and the message of 'Once a Comet Always a Comet!'
