DIVING IN

Big money buys boost relegated Dover

Dover have gambled big on Slovakian duo Milan Petrak and Durko Jarka to take them back to division one. A combined Ł1/2million plus outlay on the two riders who will line-up at heat leader for the relegated Silkmen, surprisingly SL32 WU19 Champion Kirill Sokolov departs the Freddie Memorial Stadium, the 20 year old Russian sacrificed as part of the deal that brings Petrak to the south-east. Petrak’s GSA has steadily improved over the three previous seasons to it’s current mark of 9.25, that despite him having spent those campaigns with three different clubs. A fourth in four years now for the 29 year old, who begins his reign at the Silkmen as their number one. His fellow countryman Jarka looks like he could challenge him for that role, he paid for nine in his first meeting on these shores—a draw at Milton Keynes—before making himself an instant hit in front of the Dover faithful when they took on Woodhouse, the 26 year old riding to a maximum 14+1 on his home debut. Phil Watmough wasn’t the only second tier promoter to spend big in pre-season, Newcastle’s Neil Magee also making headlines with the Ł666,668 purchase of Joseph Fisher. Fisher averaged 9.08 while on loan at Bolsover last season, but despite this high mark he will be listed only third in the Rebels squad, behind Venedict Glinka (9.99) and Jaka Dedic (9.17) in a strong looking top three. He joins the Rebels fresh from winning the New Zealand Championship for the second time in his career, having recently topped the standings in the Auckland renewal ahead of Swanage’s Joshua Ward, who like Fisher is just 26 years of age.
