Aussie Sweetman
impressed on his debut
Swindon Robins impressed a large crowd last night, when they took a solid 12 point victory over reigning Elite League champions the Coventry Bees.
 
Aussie youngster Richard Sweetman made his debut for the club, replacing Austrian reserve Manuel Hauzinger who missed the meeting after a heavy fall in Hungary on Wednesday.
 
Double figure hauls came courtesy of Leigh Adams, Troy Batchelor, and Jurica Pavlic - who also picked up his second successive Abbey Stadium Man of the Match Award.
 
Meanwhile, skipper Leigh Adams took a personal victory, when he was presented with a piece of commemorative glassware from Martin Ashby to celebrate his number one position in the club's all time scorers chart.
