KACPER Woryna says familiar face Brady Kurtz is helping him settle in at Pirates.

The duo, both 21, have been friends for years and are regarded by Poole boss Matt Ford as a key part of his plans in the coming seasons.

Woryna said: “We met when we were racing 80cc bikes and it is good to have him around.

“Whenever I have free time in Poole, we spend time together or play PlayStation online. That makes it better here.

“We play Fortnite and he is better than me. He has too much free time!”
