Lifelong dream fulfilled; Wrestling.

TEES grapplers Chris Whitton and Andy Swan are set to fulfil a lifetime's ambition tomorrow when they headline a professional show in their home town.

Chris, 25, and 21-year-old Andy top the bill at 3 Count Wrestling's debut professional show at the Redcar Bowl.

The childhood friends and tag team partners are experienced wrestlers but have never stepped foot inside the ring at the venue where they grew up watching local stars in action.

Tomorrow night they will attempt to dethrone Britain's Most Wanted, the feared tag team champions from Glasgow.

Chris is the senior member of the duo, having been involved with 3 Count Wrestling since he was just 15, while Andy made his professional debut in 2008 having trained and refereed for several years.

Whitton and Swan have both risen through the ranks of 3 Count Wrestling alongside Swan's brother, Simon, better known to wrestling fans as Lance Thunder.

Tickets for tomorrow night's show are available online or direct from the Redcar Bowl.
