South West League

Swindon were boosted by the inclusion of Shaun Rudman who has ridden only a handfull of matches this season due to a serious leg injury. He recorded three race wins and together with Rob Hunt formed a powerful twin spearhead for the Wiltshire side who put up a spirited performance against a youthful Poole line-up.



Sam Hearn stepped up to the mark as captain and was unbeaten from four starts while Ben Donohue and Jake Williams also excelled. Surpise packet Matt Elston recorded his best score in first team racing with 14 from four races including two wins. Gilt edged prospect Arron Morgan - just 13 years old - also recorded two wins including the scalp of Premier League star Rob Hunt in heat 7.

Special word of praise for referee Robin Spicer who handled this lively match very well and handed three exclusions to Danny Harper for progressively more serious infringements and was totally unfazed by the inevitable diatribe he received in return!
