Swedish star Jacob Thorssell is determined to repay Wolverhampton’s loyalty as he prepares for an eighth season at Monmore Green in 2019.

The former Stockholm SGP wild card joins forces with Rory Schlein, Sam Masters, Nick Morris, Kyle Howarth and Luke Becker in what’s shaping up to be a side with plenty of strength in depth.

The club means so much to me because every year they show they have faith in me and every year that makes me want to make it up to them.

Jacob Thorssell

Thorssell played his part in the club’s 2016 SGB Premiership title win and has been racing for Wolves since 2012.

He’s delighted by the club’s continued faith in him. He said: “I’m really glad I am back because Wolves is a very, very good club and that’s why I’ve been there for so long now.

“You never have any worries or any problems and as a rider that’s very important as it means you can turn up to each meeting and just get on with your racing without having to ask any questions. The club means so much to me because every year they show they have faith in me and every year that makes me want to make it up to them.

“This year’s team is one that should work both on the track and off it as well, and if everything clicks the way we think it will, then I think this can be a very good season for Wolverhampton.”

Wolves have just one more spot to fill in their 2019 side as the SGB Premiership one-to-sevens take shape.

Last year’s runners-up King’s Lynn are yet to announce a rider, while Ipswich still have five names to reveal.

Poole and Wolves have just one left to confirm and Belle Vue, Swindon and Peterborough have completed their sides.
