CYCLE SPEEDWAY: Second Pole heads for Coventry.

A SECOND Polish cycle speedway star is to sign for Coventry Devlins Newsagents.

World-ranked No.4 Damian Wozny, from Leszno in central Poland, is to join fellow Polish sensation Dominik Rycharski in the city squad's colours for the 2005 season.

Coventry team manager Steve Bromwich met 26-year-old Wozny in Rawicz during the sport's tenth anniversary celebrations in Poland.

Bromwich fought off keen competition from several other British clubs to land Wozny's signature. Premier League champions Oxford were also in the running, but Wozny's close friendship with Rycharski is thought to have influenced his decision.

Rycharski and Wozny teamed up to win the 2003 world pairs championship on Rycharski's home Czestochowa track and the pair have remained firm friends ever since.

Coventry club officials were jubilant with Wozny's capture. Club chairman Gary Pointer said: "Damian Wozny will provide us with a fantastic two- pronged spearehead alongside Dominik Rycharski."

After two morale boosting wins in the British League over Edinburgh and Sandwell, Coventry return to top tier Premier League combat at Hearsall Common tomorrow when they entertain arch rivals Leicester (3pm).

Since Coventry's reformation in 2001, Leicester have edged three narrow victories at Hearsall Common in exciting and robust encounters.

Leicester have been strengthened this year by the return of world individual champion Dave Helmsley to their ranks and Coventry will need to be at their very best to record their first Premier League victory.

Coventry: 1 Myke Grimes, 2 Lewis Osborne, 3 Ashley Pointer, 4 Chris Osborne, 5 Matthew Lawrence, 6 Dominik Rycharski, 7 Tim Metcalfe, 8 Ben Davies.

Coventry stage practice sessions every Wednesday evening from 6.30pm at their Hearsall Common headquarters. Bikes and safety equipment are provided free of charge. World champion Rycharski will be on hand to provide expert demonstrations.
