JACOB UP FOR CHALLENGE

Friday February 09, 2018
NEW Wolverhampton No.1 Jacob Thorssell insists he’s up for the challenge of leading from the front.

Swedish ace Thorssell has completed his rise up the team ladder and is ready to return from serious back injuries sustained last season.

Thorssell has been a firm favourite with fans since he first arrived at Monmore and is set for the biggest challenge of his career.

He said: “Riding at No.1 will be a challenge but I'm really looking forward to it.

"It's a sign of my progress - something I've done every year since I first signed for Wolverhampton.

"I've gone from reserve to second string, second string to heat leader and now I'm starting the season as the top averaged rider in the team.

"I know it's going to be a little bit tougher but I'm going to treat it like there's no difference.

"It's just a number on my back but I know I need to step things up another level and I'm keen to get started."

Meanwhile legendary Wolverhampton brothers Peter Karlsson and Mikael Max are flying over from Sweden for a special night with fans next month.

The ‘Wolves Brothers’ Show has created plenty of interest and takes place at the Cleveland Arms pub in Stow Heath Lane, Wolverhampton on Sunday March 11 (8pm).

VIP tickets include a meet and greet with signed picture, buffet, early entry from 6pm and priority seating for £30.

Standard tickets are available for £12 from 01902 451021 or clevelandarms.com now.

The club host their press and practice session on Monday March 19 from 6.30, then the following night the team and management will be at the Cleveland Arms for the pre-season talk-in from 7.30.

Parrys International Wolves open the season with an exciting Premiership battle with Poole at Monmore on March 26.
