Report

WOLVERHAMPTON said farewell to Monmore Green on Monday on what was an emotional night for all involved with the club.

The stadium has been made unavailable for next season onwards as owners Entain have chosen to focus on greyhound racing only, leaving one of the sport’s most famous clubs homeless and absent from league competition.

95 years on from the first meeting at the famous Black Country venue, speedway bikes roared for the very last time as a huge crowd, unsurprisingly, packed the terraces.

And quite fittingly, the final fixture between the 2023 Parrys International Wolves and a Wolves At Heart select side ended in a 45-45 draw after a thoroughly entertaining contest.

Luke Becker won the final race and finished with a score of 13+2, with Rory Schlein on 10. Chris Harris top-scored for the visitors with nine.

Becker said: “Going out for that last one was definitely a bit emotional knowing that they were going to be the last ever laps around here.

“So of course I wanted to go out and win it. I didn’t make the best of starts because I was a bit nervous at first, but luckily I was able to pull it off and finish on a high.

“It was emotional; it’s a club I consider home ever since I came to England, ever since I came to Europe this is where I’ve been based and it’s going to be a lot different moving forward.”
