Former SGP star Troy Batchelor has extended his Swindon stay, and team manager Alun Rossiter backed him to form a potent partnership with 2017 world champ Jason Doyle.

The pair join forces at Blunsdon with Batchelor retained after a strong season in Robins colours, while Doyle makes the move back to his parent club from Somerset. They team up with Tobiasz Musielak and Rossiter is very happy with how his Robins top end is shaping up.

This is a key signing for us. Batch can be a match winner and I think this is a move which is great for both rider and club.

He said: “This is a key signing for us. Batch can be a match winner and I think this is a move which is great for both rider and club.

“He knows Doyley well and they’ll feed off each other; I’m certain of that, and I know we’re going to see some strength at the top end of the team.

“Everything is positive right now. We’re all excited by the prospect of having Doyley back and when you add Toby and Batch, it’s all looking very positive.

“We know the direction the rest of the team is going in and we are happy. Of course, all the talking will stop next March and it’s all about what happens out there on the track.”

Rossiter paid tribute to Robins asset Nick Morris, who makes the move to Wolverhampton as he seeks a year away for 2019, with French international David Bellego also released.

The GB boss said: “I didn’t really want to lose Nick, but he’s at a good club and we wish him well apart from when he races against us! It was a hard decision leaving both Nick and David Bellego out and I hope it’s not the last we see of them in Swindon colours.”
