SWINDON Speedway wish to send congratulations and many happy returns to team member Anders Rowe on his 18th birthday.

The former CFS Filtration Robins mascot is set to make his Premiership debut with the club this season, in addition to remaining with Somerset in the Championship.

But with racing currently on hold due to the coronavirus crisis, Rowe admits he can’t wait to get back to the sport – as he celebrates his milestone birthday at home.

He said: “To be fair, we never planned anything really special to mark my 18th. We kept the date free because there was talk of a GB meeting that day and so I didn't want to plan anything and then get asked to ride as it means a lot to me to be involved with the national set-up.

“If I wasn't riding then I guess I would have been washing bikes and stuff, and then we probably would have gone out for a family meal, but as it is we will just stay home and do some chilling out. I know for sure that I will never forget my 18th!

“I just want to be able to get out there and ride my bike, but I am sure that is the same for all my fellow speedway riders.

“I was really looking forward to this season and the chance to build on my progress with Somerset and also test myself in the top league.

“Hopefully we will be able to get some racing in this season once this Coronavirus crisis eases, but we will have to wait and see what the Government allows us to do as a sport.”
