SWINDON Robins boss Alun Rossiter remains in regular dialogue with Polish Ekstraliga champions Leszno in the hope that a pre-season training camp can be arranged to inspire a possible defence of the club’s SGB Premiership crown next year.

Should Rossiter’s plans come to fruition, the Robins would jet out to Poland in advance of their Premiership opener to complete a number of practice sessions, with sparring matches also included in the potential deal with the Bulls.

Spearheaded by proven world championship contender Emil Sayfutdinov, former world number two Jaroslaw Hampel and world U21 champion Bartek Smektala, Leszno can claim to be one of the world’s finest run clubs.

This was proven last month when the club handed a four-year deal to rising Polish sensation Kacper Pludra in addition to the completion of Australian Jaimon Lidsey’s three-year contract.

Last season, Leszno attracted home crowds as high as 16,000. And Rossiter insists the experience of riding on one of speedway’s premier tracks will serve the likes of Jordan Stewart, Ellis Perks and Anders Rowe well for the future.

Rossiter said: “Our top four riders all have equipment in Poland. We want to take all riders, but we’ll have to tweak the team for the meetings – we’re looking at taking a van to get Jordan Stewart, Ellis Perks and Anders Rowe’s equipment over.

“We want to be competitive while getting a bit of practice in too.

“I’ve talked to the club. We want a few practice days and a couple of sparring meetings.”

It is also hoped that Leszno will return the favour and visit Wiltshire for one of Swindon’s pre-season fixtures on the new Abbey Stadium circuit – which last season delivered some jaw-dropping on-track action.

Rossiter was keen to stress the proposals were still in the negotiation phases, but the 54-year-old is personally keen to get his new-look seven over to Poland.

He said: “We’re still in regular talks with Leszno. We want them to come to us but also we want to get over to Poland early to bond as a team.

“Realistically, we will have to strengthen up in a couple of places if we race against Leszno at the Alfred Smocyzyk Stadium.”
