CYCLE SPEEDWAY: Decisions to be made.

COVENTRY Devlins Newsagents Cycle Speedway Club members face crucial decisions as they prepare for their annual general meeting.

Riders, Officials and Supporters meet to discuss issues such as league competition for the forth coming 2003 competition and the long term location of their racing facilities.

The annual general meeting takes place at the Herald Public House, Sir Henry Parkes Road, Canley tomorrow, Sunday 12 January, starting at 3pm. All members are asked to attend and the meeting is open to anyone with an interest in Cycle Speedway.

The big debating point is likely to be which league the Devlins Newsagents Club affiliates to. They have operated in the British League, Midland Division, for the last two years but this has only given the club just ten official league matches per year.

One option for more league matches would be to join the powerful British League Premier Division.

However, the drawback here would be that Coventry are not yet strong enough to take on the sports elite teams.

Another move would be to join the newly formed National League which would include an attractive looking encounters against sides such as Bury (Greater Manchester), Hellingley (Eastbourne) Scotia (Edinburgh).

Off the track , Mick Docker is to step down as the Club Secretary. The Irish international want to divorce his administrative role to concentrate on his on-track commitments.

First team manager of Bromwich is also likely to step aside. Long standing Coventry Speedway Stalwarts Les Grimes and Dave Foster look favourites for the post.

The new 2003 season will be an historic one for the Hearsall Common based outfit.

The team will be the first to represent the city overseas when they line up in the European Nations Champions at Almear, Holland, in May.

Coventry Riders will also be lining up at Czechtoha, Poland, in July in the World Junior Championships.
