SWINDON’S 2017 World Champion Jason Doyle is stepping up his training routine as the new season fast approaches.

Doyle is back in the UK after returning from Australia where he had successful surgery on his arm – and he admits he should have had it done two years ago.

The CFS Filtration Robins skipper, who inspired the team to a league and cup double in 2019, met with fans alongside fellow Aussie ace Troy Batchelor in a pre-season event at the Southbrook Inn on Thursday.

In front of a capacity crowd hosted by TV and radio broadcaster Nigel Pearson, the duo spoke brilliantly about their career and views on the sport in general.

Doyle said: “I’m feeling great but now we’re moving into February I’m stepping the training up a level.

“I wish I’d have had the surgery a couple of years ago to be honest, but it’s all good and I can’t wait for the season to start now.”

Doyle was pleased to make an appearance in the town after missing out on the end of season awards night.

“It was really enjoyable,” he said.

“Rosco (Alun Rossiter, team manager) has a lovely place at the Southbrook and we had a great night. Batch enjoyed it and because I missed the end of season dinner it was good to make up for it a little bit.”

Rossiter and fellow co-promoter Lee Kilby oversaw the event with club director Steve Park as well as Wayne and Gavin Russell, sons of club chairman Terry.
