LEICESTER have booked Josh Grajczonek to guest in their clash with King’s Lynn at Beaumont Park on Saturday (7.30).

The Watling JCB Lions are searching for a second straight home win against the Norfolk outfit after a 54-38 win when the sides met on July 24.

They have drafted in Aussie ace Grajczonek to guest for the injured Kim Nilsson in the No.1 spot, whilst rider replacement again covers for Pawel Przedpelski.

Club bosses have urged fans to come and support the team, with a bouncy castle for kids between 5.30 and 7.30.

Owner Damien Bates said: “We’ve had some great support the last few weeks, and with it being the school holiday we hope we’ll get another good crowd this weekend.

“We’ve got a bouncy castle for the kids and we want them to bring their air horns and make some noise for the boys as we try and get another win.”

Meanwhile, Leicester head to high-flying Swindon tonight (Thursday, 7.30) looking to add to their SGB Premiership points tally.

A full report and reaction from the meeting will follow later tonight.
