Cook Going For Gold
British No.2 Craig Cook says his side have “nothing to lose” ahead of next week’s Elite League Grand Final, where they will take on the Wolverhampton Wolves for the 2016 top flight title.

The 29-year old Cumbrian is one of the longest-serving Belle Vue Aces in their current incarnation and he’s determined to finish what began as a frustrating year with one final golden flourish.
He said: “To win the league with Belle Vue would be awesome. I’ve been with this club a long time. It’s my home club and all I want is for us to succeed and it’d mean the world to me to win the gold.
“Last year we were the underdogs. Nobody expected us to do as well as we did. We ran Poole so close and though we were disappointed to just miss out, we took a lot from that experience.
“It was a fantastic performance that we’re aiming to better this season. But I don’t feel there’s any pressure on us. Come the Grand Final, we’re going to do as we always do. We’ll do our best.”
Tickets for Leg 2 of the Grand Final continue to sell furiously less than 48 hours after going on sale, with South Stand tickets still available and Block G the only remaining Grandstand area.
