Dream Team : Keith Cross

BriggsCrump

I've been a Robins fan since the late sixties, this is my dream team.

Barry Briggs
The greatest Robin of all time. Twice world champion '64 and '66 as a Robin. Won British title 6 years in a row. Awarded M.B.E. Scored an incredible 3681 points from 321 matches, 142 maximums.

Phil Crump
Brilliant Aussie. Often stood alone in weak Robins teams in the 80's. 4254 points from 411 matches.

Martin Ashby
Local lad. Record for the most points and appearances for the club 641 matches for 5476 points. Not the fastest of gaters but legendary for cut-back manoeuvres on pits bend.

Leigh Adams
Currently top of Elite League averages. From same small town as Crumpy. Reknowned for armchair riding style. Has been exceptional this campaign carrying Robins with 18 point maximums.

Jimmy Nilsen
Super Swede racked up 3815 points in 408 matches.5 times World finalist. The top Scandanavian at Blunsdon.

Mike Broadbanks
The red devil was a member of the last robins side to win the league in 1967, also a member of the 1957 title winning team. Represented the robins for 16 seasons! 560 matches for 4239 points. Still a familiar figure at Blunsdon assisting team manager Alun Rossiter.

Bob Kilby
Swindon lad, also a member of the '67 team. Electric gater - 556 matches for 4192 points
