Wolverhampton secured their Elite League status by completing their aggregate victory over Premier League champions Edinburgh on the last night of the season at Monmore Green.

Parrys International Wolves had been delighted to leave Armadale with a 16-point advantage on Friday, but the Scottish side were certainly no pushovers in the second leg.

A bumper crowd swelled by plenty of Monarchs fans generated a fine atmosphere, and there was plenty of good racing, especially in the races involving Ryan Fisher and Andrew Tully.

Nicolai Klindt enjoyed a fabulous end to his first campaign in British speedway, and the young Dane was unbeaten from his first four rides before running a last in Heat 15.

Jesper B Monberg, at the other end of the experience scale, also won three races on his way to a 12-point haul as Wolves fought off dogged opponents who were just four points adrift on the night at the halfway stage.

Wolves pulled clear and Klindt neutralised Fisher's tactical ride by holding the American at bay to win Heat 12, and Wolves made sure of victory with maximum points in Heat 13 as both Monberg and Fredrik Lindgren made their way past William Lawson.

The penultimate heat was the race of the night as Wolves guest Lewis Bridger threw everything into his bid to pass Tully, with the two riders actually colliding on the back straight and somehow keeping control, and Bridger sweeping through late in the race.

Fisher wrapped things up by winning the last race of the season ahead of the Wolves riders' farewells - the club will be back in the top flight in 2009, and there will be plenty of questions concerning the line-up.

WOLVES 53:
Jesper B Monberg 12, Nicolai Klindt 11+1, Lewis Bridger 8+1, Fredrik Lindgren 7+2, David Howe 7+1, Chris Neath 6, Ludvig Lindgren 2, Niels-Kristian Iversen r/r.

EDINBURGH 39:
Ryan Fisher 16+1, Andrew Tully 8+1, James Brundle 7+1, William Lawson 6, Aaron Summers 2+1, Matthew Wethers 0, Thomas H Jonasson r/r.
