Dream Team : Simon Colven

I have followed Swindon Robins since 1989, the halcyon days of Andrew Silver, John Davis, Peter Nahlin etc! Sadly due to work commitments I am unable to watch my beloved Robins as much as I used to. My family also used to watch the Berwick Bandits during their early days of the late 60s and early 70s. My selection reflects some happy memories as a boy and young man on the terraces at the Abbey Stadium.

Leigh Adams
My all time favourite rider. Immaculate and absolutely effortless style. I have watched and followed him since his very first race at the Abbey. Here's hoping Leigh, maybe this year the world championship????

Paul Fry
GOOOO OOONN FRYER! What a racer! Never knew when he had lost a race, always fought down to the very last. A true crowd pleaser wherever he went.

Gary Allan
Mr consistency! Only one season at swindon. Who could ever forget that stunning pass on the last lap of the 1993 cup semi final to put us in the final? Enough said!

Hans Nielsen
I know he rode for "the other side" in Oxford but did anyone actually ever beat this bloke??!! (Except my number 6 choice!) Astonishing on a speedway bike.

Brian Karger
Another true speedway gentleman. Given a rough time by Swindon in the early '90s thus resulting in his move to Arena Essex but during his spells with the Robins a true racer and all round nice bloke. Always took time to speak and sign autographs etc.

David Smart
The first rider I ever had my photo taken with!! Also one race in particular that sticks in the memory. I don't know which season it was, but I recall him riding the race of his life to keep the mighty Hans Nielsen behind him to earn the Robins a 5-1.

Alan Mogridge
What can I say?? Seen him do some amazing things on a speedway bike, one in particular was during a vist to Berwick's Shielfield Park a few years ago. Don't recall the opposition but he went from last to first in the space of half a lap including one almighty sweep round that the banked 3rd and 4th bend which brought the house down!!
