SWINDON Robins' season-opening Elite Shield clash with Poole has been postponed due to the threat of rain later this afternoon.

After rain fell on the Blunsdon track last night, the decision has been made by the club's management to call the meeting off early due to the wet weather which is due to arrive early this afternoon and last until just before the scheduled start of the meeting.

Swindon will now open their competitive Elite League season against Lakeside tomorrow night.
