Grand Prix star Chris Holder won his first trophy as Poole captain after bagging 13 paid 14 points to inspire them to Elite Shield glory at Wimborne Road on Wednesday night.

Pirates triumphed 58-34 over Wolves to lift the trophy 104-78 on aggregate following their 46-44 win at Monmore Green on Monday.

Holder, racing his last warm-up meeting before the FIM Buckley Systems New Zealand SGP in Auckland on March 31, dropped just one point to Swedish international Freddie Lindgren in heat one, but went unbeaten in his final four rides.

Double World Under-21 champion Darcy Ward also shone on 12 paid 13, while Polish international Adrian Miedzinski scored eight points and won his last two races as he made a solid home debut.

Ricky Kling built on his strong performance at Monmore with seven paid nine, and reserve Todd Kurtz pushed his case to keep the No.7 race jacket ahead of Mateusz Szczepaniak with an impressive seven paid eight.

Lindgren top-scored for Wolves with 12 points and his only serious support came from Team GB racer Tai Woffinden on eight.
