(SPEEDWAY 1)PETERBOROUGH have won the race to sign exciting Danish teenager Michael Jepsen Jensen.The 19-year-old will make his Panthers debut in the away fixture at Coventry on Monday evening with the club yet to disclose details on who is making way.Owner Rick Frost said: "We have been talking with Michael for a long time but he didn't want to commit himself to racing regularly in Britain. However, he now feels the time is right and he is someone we were eager to bring to the Panthers."We always have to be looking forward and he's someone who can play a long-term role in our future. He wants to have the rest of the season over here to get ready fornext year and in view of our current league position we feel this is the right time to blood him."(SPEEDWAY 2)BERWICK have announced plans to become the first Premier League club to install the Tracksafe Polyfoam Barrier System at their circuit.The safety feature is already present at Elite League King's Lynn's Norfolk Arena, and the Bandits confirmed the news during their 40-34 home win over Workington on Saturday.Team boss Ian Rae said: "When King's Lynn installed their polyfoam barrier this season - after having it fully-tested at MIRA (the Motor Industry Research Association) and fully-approved for all FIM speedway meetings - we felt this might be the way forward."It is a big move, a huge investment, by the A & J Scott Bandits - but as in all walks of life, health and safety is a natural requirement, and we want this speedway to be the safest, as well as the fastest, in the land!"(SPEEDWAY 3)MILDENHALL moved a step closer to clinching a place in the National League play-offs with an impressive 48-42 away win over Hackney.The Fen Tigers fought back from six points down with five heats to go in a meeting at Rye House which swung to and fro between the sides.Co-promoter Michael Lee said: "It was a great all round performance and everyone played their part, including Robert (Branford) who came in and did everything we could ask of him. When the meeting seemed to be slipping away in the middle we gave the boys a pep talk and they responded superbly. "It's starting to look good for a play-off spot but we aren't there yet, so we must go all out for victory at Scunthorpe on Monday and back at home against Newport next Sunday."(FIXTURES)SUNDAY AUGUST 28:SKY SPORTS ELITE LEAGUE: Eastbourne v Swindon 3.30PREMIER LEAGUE: Glasgow v Edinburgh 4pm, Leicester v Newport 7pm, Newcastle v Sheffield 6.30NATIONAL LEAGUE: Buxton v Sheffield 3pmNATIONAL LEAGUE KO CUP: Mildenhall v Isle of Wight 4.30MONDAY AUGUST 29:SKY SPORTS ELITE LEAGUE: Coventry v Peterborough 7.30, Peterborough v Coventry 11am, Wolverhampton v Eastbourne 7.30PREMIER LEAGUE: Rye House v Newcastle 2pm, Scunthorpe v Edinburgh 3pm, Workington v Berwick 7pmNATIONAL LEAGUE: Scunthorpe v Mildenhall (follows PL fixture)TUESDAY AUGUST 30:NATIONAL LEAGUE: Dudley v Buxton 7.30
