SWINDON ROBINS: Batchelor and Andersen dispute goes on

SWINDON are no nearer to completing their side for 2013 after the BSPA failed to announce their decision regarding the dispute between the Robins and Peterborough.
The Blunsdon side are keen to bring top-two Hans Andersen and Troy Batchelor back to the club for the defence of their Elite League title, but the Panthers have so far not been willing to allow their assets to return to Wiltshire on loan.
The Alwalton club are only willing to sell the pair, but the Robins believe they should be allowed to loan the duo once again because they never figured in the Panthers’ plans for 2013.
The BSPA Management Committee met in Rugby yesterday to try and settle the dispute as well as a similar one between the Panthers and King’s Lynn regarding Niels-Kristian Iversen, with Stars co-promoter Jonathan Chapman announcing last night he had been given the green light to talk to the Dane regarding a loan move.
The decision regarding Iversen makes it increasingly likely Andersen and Batchelor’s futures will be resolved in the same way, with the verdict expected to be announced later today.
