SWINDON Speedway have announced that Ronnie Russell has been installed as the Robins' new team manager.

Russell is a well-known personality in British speedway and brings a wealth of management experience to the role courtesy of his long-term involvement in the sport.

London-born Ronnie, brother or Robins' co-owner Terry, is no stranger to speedway management having had previous managerial stints with Crayford, Rye House, Somerset and two separate spells at the then-named Arena-Essex.

And the 61-year-old is well-known at Swindon, too, having taken over the role of track curator during the early part of the 2009 campaign. Russell also spent a spell at the helm of Premier League Somerset during last season, but now re-joins British speedway's top-flight with the Robins.
