Some great schemes launched by Coventry Bears this week, really making a good fist of preparing the club for life in the semi-pro ranks.

You are going to have to be more specific. What schemes do you think are great?

Be a bit dangerous to "come on" a bear though.

I would guess its the membership options. Nice professional looking website and getting people to be club members and buy season tickets is the way to get the necessary crowds in. With 12 months notice it's a chance, in fact it's a necessity, that the Bears take the opportunity to ramp up the publicity and get people down to watch them now. I think they'll do well at home and get a few wins in the NCL which will help hook people, if you can get them in in the first place.

I worry about the All Golds, who look like they will be the weakest team in the new CC1 - they haven't had time to build up a following and losing all the time won't help get people in.

Doesn't have to be a problem - Skolars are still here and I saw them absolutely demolished by Sheffield Eagles in 2003 (98-4 I think)

They came up to Wigan last weekend and got beat 34-28 off my local club Wigan St. Cuthberts who are now in their debut season in the National Confrence 3rd Division. Now ive watched Cuthberts for a good while now and they are an ok amateur team but that is it. They will struggle in their debut season in Division 3 so for the Bears to get beat of them isnt a good step i dont think. I went down and watched the game and for the bears sake i just hope they are able to recruit well because if they play like they did against Cuthberts, semi pro level is going to be a huge shock

The bear logo is about 500 times better than the old Oldham one.

I doubt the team that took the field against WSC will be anything like the one that plays in C1 next year.

They got a draw too 16-16 at the weekend up at Warrington against Crosfields who I think played either NCL 1 or 2 last year.

I saw Coventry a couple of times last year, as I saw Hemel a couple of times and they were very similar in standard. Coventry looked more of a 'footballing side', whereas Hemel were a bit of a 'blunt instrument', but if Hemel can step up, with another year to prepare there's no reason why Coventry can't.

Good luck to 'em.

Coventry suprised me when they played at North Wales Crusaders recently. Much better than I anticipated, but I don't know where all these new teams are going to get championship standard players from?
