Another Old Boy Helps Out

Another former influential Coventry star has offered to help the rugby club out of its crisis.

Rodney Webb, the former Coventry and England winger, who is now managing director of the rugby ball makers James Gilbert, has agreed to supply two sets of playing strip in time for the Allied Dunbar Premiership Division Two season.

Gilberts, whose rugby balls are used throughout the world, will also produce a range of new products for the club shop to celebrate the club's 125th anniversary.

Coventry's chairman Keith Fairbrother, a team-mate of Webb's for club and country, said:

"It is great to see another former Coventry player offering to help the club. It shows just how much goodwill there is towards this great club."

Fairbrother is already pushing ahead with fixtures for a new Emerging Players team. He has held meetings with local junior clubs to ask for their help in supplying talented young players and a 20-match fixture list has been put together.

Coventry officials were meeting the RFU in London today for ratification of the club's new ownership.

Meanwhile three of the club's league games have been switched to new dates. Bristol (away) is now on Friday 30 October, Leeds Tykes (away) is Sunday 22 November and the return match against Bristol is at Coundon Road on Sunday 24 January.
