A result like this would have been unthinkable 5 years ago.
To all those that think the RFL are wasting their time trying to spread the game, this result shows that is not the case.
Coventry Bears U16's are unbeaten this year and last week our U14's only lost by 2 points to Leigh Miners.
These kids have now been playing since primary school and our challenge is to keep them away from " the dark side".
There are now 4 stand alone RL clubs in Coventry so even in this one city the game is growing.
Coventry Bears and Coventry Dragons both run two men's teams and the Bears have a women's team playing in the national league ( those women will be mothers one day and will be teaching their kids how to catch a rugby league ball!)
The Bears also run children's teams at all ages.
Development Works!

Excellent post Ron but if this is so why are pro game gates particularly Championship so low. Need I repeat it but last weeks gates were

Doncaster     611

Leigh    1807

Fev     2110

Gateshead   301

Crusaders   1086

Oxford   241

Scorpions    366

I couldn't get CP yesterday but the these gates are nothing short of dreadful. Having said that I am very much in favour of expansion as long as the famous historical clubs aren't sacrificed.

Yes, there is no doubt that the challenge for the new clubs is to attract enough speccies to sustain the club.
Of the above it looks like only Crusaders of the new clubs are breaking the 1000 barrier. However these figures are a bit distorted because if Hunslet, Rochdale and Oldham had been playing at home they too would have only shown something in the low hundreds.
These clubs already have a tradition and their challenge is to attract back their lost support.
The new clubs need a business plan that is met and if the forecasted attendance through the turnstile is set at a realistic figure then clubs can manage on their set budget.
I was at a meeting a few weeks ago when a couple of CEO's of Championship clubs were saying that quietly they are glad when they lose as they can't afford to pay the win bonus! How sad is that?
The new clubs know they have to try and generate income and perhaps be a bit more proactive than some of the older clubs that seem to think that because they have an illustrious past that they have a God given right to be a success in the future.
It seems to me that the BOD at Barrow are trying to grow the club in a sustainable way, but I'm not sure that that can be said of some of the other traditional clubs.

Good discussion fella's, I for one hope these new clubs thrive & prosper ultimately spreading the game deeper into the conscious of the sport fans in these new area's & more players and fans are introduced to RL. 

 

On the other hand its sad when traditional clubs go to the wall, but as its been talked about here they have to be proactive and not rest on their laurels for in todays fast paced world anything that's not going forwards is in reality going backwards,  Also with technology the world is shrinking were big clubs get bigger while small clubs get smaller, hence kids support who they see on the telly etc.

 

So all small clubs face big problems in attracting new supporters, BRLFC and the rest really should treble their efforts within their own communities to coax fresh faces to attend games, which is very hard as they are very busy trying to keep their collective heads above water  but again IMHO they need to step back, take stock, then give someone the sole task of self promotion into the community.

 

The more efforts spend this way will pay off, though very little to begin with !! stick at it & the product on the field will win over some casual fan into more of a semi regular supporter, being a salesman of sorts I could drone on for hours on this subject but don't want you dropping off. 

 

It works if you work it.
