Swindon star Jason Doyle admits he has endured a rollercoaster ride this season, helping his teams to two finals - but finishing his campaign with a broken neck.
Doyle starred for Swindon and Somerset in the Elite League and Premier League respectively, helping both to their play-off finals and the Robins clinched the top-flight title.
But the Australian missed out on the deciding matches after a mid-October crash at Sheffield.
He said: "Moving to Swindon was the best move of my career. I am absolutely over the moon for the team to have won the league, but it was just a pity I wasn't able to ride in the final yet again.
"My neck is broken and I know that I am a lucky man to be walking, so next year once I have recovered I am hoping I don't have any injuries to deal with.
"I have loved it this season and I would like to be back at Swindon with a winning team next year."
