I had a bit of time on my hands last night so thought I'd look at the mileage stats for away games in this seasons league.

The list below shows the total distance traveled TO games by each team. Obviously for total mileage covered you need to double it. I have taken the stats from the suggested route on Google Maps (not always the shortest or best route, but it gives you some idea) from ground to ground. For fan mileage this is obviously only applicable for fans traveling from the Grimsby area.

The list below shows the teams in order of mileage covered. The first figure is the total traveled TO each game, the 2nd figure is the average miles to each game and the figure in brackets is the number of games within 100 miles.

Probably just a load of nonsense to most people but if you're interested in attendance stats then I hope you find the list interesting.

GATESHEAD 5469 238.2 (0)

Revealing stats.

Even when we were in the Evo-Stik Premier our longest journeys were "only" Chasetown and Colwyn Bay, which were both a few miles either side of 100. Thems were the days...

I thought we'd be higher up than that.

Take Grimsby and Alfreton out and we seem to travel for bloody ages, but that doesn't overly seem to be the case.
