Belle Vue racer Kenneth Bjerre blazed to 16 points as the Aces lifted the SGB Premiership Knock Out Cup - their first trophy in 12 years.

Mark Lemon’s men triumphed 52-38 over Wolverhampton in Manchester on Monday and 92-88 on aggregate to claim the final piece of top-flight silverware this term.

It was injury-ravaged Wolves’ second loss in a major final this year following their play-off final defeat at the hands of Swindon.

Bjerre roared to five victories in seven rides to lead the way, with Aussie ace Rohan Tungate starring on 13 paid 14. Dan Bewley bagged eight and Steve Worrall scored seven paid 10 as Aces won the KO Cup for the first time since 2005.

Stand-in skipper Sam Masters was Wolves’ top performer on 10 paid 12 as he warms up for his wild card appearance in the QBE Insurance Australian SGP at Melbourne’s Etihad Stadium on October 28.

Elsewhere, Leicester cemented their SGB Premiership status after winning the second leg of their promotion/relegation play-off with Sheffield 49-41 at Beaumont Park.

Lions sealed a thumping 107-73 aggregate victory, with Denmark’s Michael Palm Toft leading the charge on 14 points. German star Erik Riss added 11 paid 12 and Sweden’s Kim Nilsson scored 10 paid 11.

Guest Nick Morris was Sheffield’s highest scorer on 12 paid 13, with Lasse Bjerre collecting 11.
