CYCLE SPEEDWAY: Decisions on agenda.

COVENTRY Devlins Newsagents Cycle Speedway members gather tomorrow face crucial decisions on the future direction of the club.

Their annual meeting is at the Herald Public House, Sir Henry Parkes Road, Canley (3pm) - and top of the agenda is in which league the club will operate in 2004.

Since 2001 they have operated in the Midland League, last year they moved up to the National League after opting against joining the Premier League, the sports elite league set up.

However, three of the Premier League teams - Wednesfield, Leicester and Stoke - are on the Devlins Newsagents News Calendar in the Midland League.

So a move up to Premier League would only create additional, if very difficult, fixtures against the powerful Ipswich, Oxford, Southampton and Poole teams.

Upper most in members considerations is the strength of the team.

Team manager Steve Bromwich believes Coventry's up and coming youngsters, headed by Ashley Pointer and Myke Grimes, will only blossom in the higher standard of racing but hopes of signing world champion Dave Hemsley from Poole have now faded.

However, Polish superstar Dominic Rychrski will be adding substantial top end fire power by signing.

The 25 year old, from Czeshtohowa, central Poland, will be flying in in April to become Coventry's first ever foreign signing.
