Swindon Robins' Morris eyes Premier League title
SWINDON’S Nick Morris will be looking to end his season on a high tonight when he competes for Somerset in the second leg of the Premier League play-off final against Edinburgh.
The Australian teenager was part of the Robins side which lost to Poole in the semi-final of the Elite League play-offs but has enjoyed a superb season in the second tier with the Rebels as he bids to continue his run of winning a title in every season of his career.
Somerset, who also include Swindon asset Jason Doyle in their side, trail by two points going into the deciding leg after the Monarchs won the first leg 45-43 on Friday night as they look to go one step better than last year after they lost in the play-off final to Scunthorpe.
The Rebels are offering Swindon season ticket holders entry to the meeting for only £10 if they present their passes at the Oak Tree Arena and Rebels promoter Debbie Hancock is looking to follow in the footsteps of mentor Alun Rossiter by winning a league title.
“Jason and Nick are Swindon riders and live in Swindon so it would be great to have some Swindon fans here to cheer them on in the final,” she said.
“Any Swindon season ticket holder can come to the meeting for only £10 if they present their pass and it’s going to be special night of racing for sure.
“When you get involved as a promoter you have to have someone who has been doing it for a while as a mentor, that’s the rules, and Rosco (Rossiter) was mine so hopefully I can follow in his shoes.
“Rosco was a rider and has seen the good and bad times of speedway so he’s been great and has helped me a lot. There is a heavy storm forecast for Monday night but if that comes in we will run on Tuesday for certain because the weather forecast is really good.”
