SKIPPER Jason Doyle says nobody can argue that Swindon Robins are deserving of being crowned SGB Premiership champions after they were able to recover from a series of problems throughout the season.

Alun Rossiter’s side looked set to be scrapping it out in the lower regions of the table after recording just one victory in their opening nine league fixtures.

However, the addition of Tobiasz Musielak into the side in early June sparked the Robins into a run of 17 consecutive meeting victories and propelled them into the play-offs as top seeds.

All the while, Swindon had to contend with injuries to Doyle and reserve pair Bradley Wilson-Dean and Zach Wajtknecht before their title dream seemed to be fading when they slipped to defeat in the first leg of the Grand Final against Wolverhampton Wolves on home shale.

However, Rossiter was able to galvanise his troops one last time and they pulled off an unbelievable fightback in the second leg at Monmore Green to clinch the crown by a single point.

“It’s unbelievable. There were too many doubters at the start of the year when we were going bad but it just shows you that anything can happen in speedway,” said Australian ace Doyle.

“With one little change, it ended up being a massive favour for us and Toby coming into the team changed everything.

“He is the main reason for the turnaround but there are seven riders who really wanted to win.

“We were disappointed and embarrassed when we got beaten at home but people should realise the track was nothing like we are used to.

“It was massively difficult to come back from that but I think the right team won the championship with the season we have had.”
