SWINDON boss Alun Rossiter has revealed some regret about his racing days – because his biggest successes came with Poole.

Rossiter was widely regarded as a reliable team man who has become a title winning specialist as a manager.

But he also won a hat trick of titles with Poole after Swindon sold him to make way for hot prospect Andrew Silver.

“The sad thing was Swindon sold me in 1989, all of my riding success came at Poole really.

“It was Ron Byford who sold me for £10,000 in order to buy Andrew Silver. I would rib him about that over the years, even up to when we went to see him in hospital.”

“I had league titles in 89, 90 and 94 at Poole, in 90 we did the league and cup double and that was pretty special.”

Rossiter has given an in-depth interview to the club’s season delay programme with issue six now available to order online from the publishers.

In a packed issue there is also a feature interview with Adam Ellis and former manager Mick Bell also recalls his five seasons in charge at the Abbey – plus there’s the usual variety of columns from co-promoter Lee Kilby, director Steve Park and more.

It’s available now from and all orders received by Wednesday will be posted out on Thursday. The previous five issues are also available to complete the set at no extra postage cost.
