CYCLE SPEEDWAY: Hubble retains veterans crown.

COVENTRY celebrated 50 years of cycle speedway racing in the city by staging the British Veterans Championship final at Hearsall Common.

A crowd of several hundred, headed by Coventry Lord Mayor Cllr Sucha Bains, assembled as Coventry Devlins newsagents rider Allan Brown, stormed to an early win.

Sandwell's Ivan Darby took over as the early pacesetter with three first- half victories as Brown's challenge faded but a consistent display from defending champion Dennis Hubble, who rides for Southampton, saw him come through to retain his crown.

Coventry Devlins Newsagents are in National League action tomorrow (3pm) against Sandwell at the Tiveydale Sports Ground, Lower City Road, near junction 2 of the M5.

Coventry: 1 Matthew Lawrence, 2 Myke Grimes, 3 Ashley Pointer, 4 Dave Frith, 5 Joe McLaughlin, 6 Mick Docker, 7 Tim Metcalfe, 8 Ben Davies.

Riders, officials and supporters meet at the Herald pub, Canley, at midday.
