Peterborough Speedway: Back to be being a fan

OUTGOING team boss Carl Johnson insists he will be back at the East of England Showground to support Peterborough in their quest for honours.

Johnson has stepped down from his role with the T Balfe Construction Panthers due to family commitments only a few weeks into the 2016 campaign.

But he will remain a big supporter of the club and plans to take in as many meetings as possible from the grandstand.
Johnson said: I wanted the opportunity to be a team manager and Ive enjoyed the challenge immensely.

It has been tough at times, but also very rewarding and Ive learned a lot since taking the job on in the summer of 2014.

But it is not a role I feel I can continue in currently. It has become too much for me to juggle my work and family commitments along with my finances.

It takes up a big amount of my time and costs a lot of money to be involved in speedway.

Im also aware of the fact I missed out on time with my eldest three children when they were little as I had separated from their mum.

Im not going to put myself in the position of missing out on seeing my young son, who is now six months old, grow up.

I wouldnt rule out a return to team management in the future, but Im just looking forward to watching meetings as a fan again now.

Ill be back in the crowd at the Showground again just as I always used to be.

Johnsons reign ended on a high as Peterborough triumphed 57-36 at Scunthorpe on Sunday in a Premier League Cup Midland Group clash their second big success of the season against the Scorpions.
