Colin Meredith will again be team manager of reigning Elite League champions Oxford in the 2002 season.

Cheetahs promoter Vanessa Purchase has confirmed that Meredith, the former Coventry boss, will continue as both Oxford manager and track curator at Cowley.

"Colin is an integral part of our operation and he guided the team to last year's title success," said Purchase. "He continues both jobs with our blessing."
