SWC: Rosco's pride at GB victory

This Is Wiltshire: Alun Rossiter Alun Rossiter

ROBINS boss Alun Rossiter was a proud man after steering Great Britain through to their first World Cup final in four years this evening.

Tai Woffinden, Danny King, Chris Harris and Simon Stead all hit double figures as the Brits beat USA and Australia to make Saturday’s final in Poland.

Rossiter always knew the quartet he picked were capable of making it straight through and was proud his hunch proved correct.

“I’m so proud of the riders, I had a belief in the riders I picked and I went with my gut feeling which turned out to be right,” he said.

“They showed they wanted after a bit of criticism in certain areas but they showed that they wanted it and that belief got them through.

“Team spirit was amazing and we’re straight through to the final, that’s fantastic.

“The atmosphere was amazing and to be at a packed stadium was amazing.

“We’re into the final now and anything can happen, we need to cut the negativity out because some people don’t give British speedway a chance, but we showed it this evening and I can’t wait for the final.”
