BIRMINGHAM WIN RETRO FOURS

Monday August 11, 2014
WOLVERHAMPTON fell just short of victory as they hosted an exciting Retro Fours event at Monmore Green on Monday.

The hosts put in a determined display to edge second place ahead of bitter rivals Cradley - but they narrowly missed out on the top spot as neighbours Birmingham emerged victorious.

It was an entertaining night of action which ended with Wolves asset Ricky Wells claiming the Gary Peterson Memorial Trophy with victory in the top scorers' race.

It capped off an excellent evening for the popular American as he led Wolves' efforts throughout as they narrowly missed out on victory against the strong Brummies side.

Aussie duo Rohan Tungate and Cameron Heeps added solid scores for the hosts whilst new signing Lasse Bjerre notched six with an encouraging display.

And the talented Dane was delighted to have the chance for some extra track time having recently arrived at Monmore Green.

Said Bjerre: "It was good to have some more time on the track with this meeting, because I am still trying to find the setups and get used to this track.

"It was a shame we couldn't quite get the win, but I tried lots of different things and it seemed to be working towards the end."

BIRMINGHAM 34: Ben Barker 10. Ludvig Lindgren 9, Danny King 8, Paul Starke 7.

WOLVERHAMPTON 28: Ricky Wells 9, Rohan Tungate 8, Lasse Bjerre 6, Cameron Heeps 5.

CRADLEY 27: Stuart Robson 10, Aaron Summers 9, Gino Manzares 4, Kyle Newman 4.
