Poole Pirates beat Eastbourne to win Knockout Cup

Speedway

Poole Pirates have won the Elite League Knockout Cup after a last-heat decider against South coast rivals Eastbourne.

The cup win provides some consolation for Poole, who lost out to Coventry Bees in the Elite League Grand Final.

The tie came down to the final race, with Pirates riders Chris Holder and Bjarne Pedersen delivering maximum points to seal the 54-41 win.

Holder said: "We put a lot of effort in to miss out in the League, and we wanted this so much."
