ADAMS - WHAT MIGHT HAVE BEEN

Monday November 04, 2019
WOLVERHAMPTON boss Peter Adams admits his side were left wondering what might have been as he reflected on the 2019 campaign.

Parrys International Wolves produced a stunning late season charge to get into the Premiership play-offs.

But they were knocked out at the semi-final stages by eventual Champions Swindon in a 107-71 aggregate defeat.

Adams was proud of his side’s overall efforts though - particularly as they spent the opening months of the season without some key members of their initial line-up.

“Everyone knows the injury issues we had to contend with for the first third of the year,” Adams said.

“Then Nick (Morris) and Jacob (Thorssell) declared themselves fit and came into the team.

“It took them a bit of time to get up to speed but with 11 matches of the season left, we started getting to the top of our game.

“We won seven of those last 11 with some great performances along the way and we were in great form going into the play-offs.

“Unfortunately, there was quite a big gap after our final regular meeting and some of our riders had been parked up in that time and they were a little bit rusty one or two of them.

“It was a disappointing couple of legs for us against Swindon though nevertheless.

“There are no questions about their superiority in the Semi-Final.

“They’re a very strong team who were full of confidence.

“The rainstorm before the first leg on the Wednesday was the undoing of us though I think.

“Had that not come, the track was in fantastic condition thanks to the hard work of the track staff and we were all quite confident that we could’ve taken a healthy lead to Swindon.

“But that’s how it goes sometimes and we congratulate Swindon on their success.

“It’s been a pleasure working with these riders this season.

“There’s a lot of water got to go under the bridge before we make any decisions about next year’s line-up.”

The sport’s AGM takes place between November 13-15.
