Although it looked and was actually more (not much more, but definitely more than 211). But then Bromley pull this on Sutton every season.

Is there a worse away end than Bromley? No access to any shelter or seating and a dirt track from the street to the away end. Plus random placing of floodlights obscuring the view

it’s definitely the worst in the league currently.

Maidenhead barely giving us any shelter in the pissing rain despite the rest of the ground being fairly empty was shit as well.

ive always thought if clubs don’t give us any seating, we shouldn’t give their fans any at Kingfield.

Unfortunately York Road's ancient configuration means that we can't really give away fans anywhere other than the uncovered corner. We probably should put shelter over it but any other location in the ground would make safe segregation impossible.

Not sure either game between us this season really needed to be segregated to be fair.

We seem to segregate against pretty much everyone these days.

Hey, seeing as we don’t give away fans any terracing at the Hive - could you give us just seating for our match at Kingfield on Tuesday week? That would be much appreciated.

There will be plenty of seating if all 150 of you want to sit in the stand:)

When are we getting an update on the Big League?

We're currently averaging 242 with 6 games to go, which will put us comfortably in the top 10, which as always will be exclusively occupied by fellow members of the Brotherhood of Great and Historic Football League Clubs. :bdick:

we're averaging about 234 with 5 games to go - there's talk of up to 2000 going to the Good Friday game at yours though if we are still up there....

I can't see 2,000 going - that's effectively the entire home support. We took just over 1,000 to Fylde and that's just a short trip down the M6. Something similar again, I'd expect.

Have to do excel training for work so I thought what the hell I'll just go piss on Josh Butler 's parade and calculate the averages. Took fucking ages and my excel skills are still shite. Number of figures missing but this is what I got

If anyone's interested (probably not) we've received an average of 166 Northerners per game visiting Plainmoor this season.

Look at Chorley- REAL club, y'see.
Then look at Fylde, Boreham, Harrogate, Solihull, Eastleigh- bought a place in this league, fake as fuck. What's the point of them? :ds:

Supporting a fake club is just a hobby, supporting a REAL club is a way of life.:cool:

Solid from Torquay and barrow to take that percent away when most games are huge treks. Even if barrow are top.
Wrexham too to say they've been shit. Aldershot too albeit they'll have a few London awayers which aren't far

We have always had that high percentage travel. Yes we have our south east based fans who top it up, Plymouth and Exeter also have large support in the south east too that as to the totals. Even recently when we had put on a terrible run still had 175 at Fylde, just over 200 at Halifax and nearly 300 at Harrogate just before xmas. Yeovil only are short journey around 70 miles, then Eastleigh around 130 then next nearest are Aldershot , Woking and Maidenhead around 170 each.

It depends - IF we could win the league on good Friday (there are only 3 games due after that) then how many of the people who went to Sunderland and/or Middlesborough would go? Remember we took 8,000/9,000 there.

For me the stats say Torquay have the best away support in the league. They don’t have the home support the top 5 have but travel in good numbers everywhere. Maybe it’s the promotion bounce but fair fucks, good support.

Aldershot and BarnetWood decent but how much of that is down to the league being a cockney hellhole? Woking’s figures were consistent from memory, only one sub 100 figure.

Notts will always have the most fans being the biggest club here. They also benefit from being in the midlands, as do Chesterfield.

As for Pools, bit down on last year. We were third overall. We don’t have the 2000 a season Gateshead match, we are far from virtually everyone and several northern games have been Tues night and on the tele. We’ve also had a couple of lower than usuals down south.

Also Chorley have very respectable figures being complete pish. Good addition to the league, much rather have them here than some others.

Worst support is definitely Eastleigh. Their away followings are an embarrassment based on their home crowds.

Those are the only circumstances that would see us take 1,000+, I reckon. It's certainly a game I'm going to regardless!

To be fair, the figures Eastleigh quote at home are nonsense so that pushes the home average miles up and the % figure miles down. Can't remember the attendance they gave when we went there but it was a good 20% above what was actually in the ground.

And yes we have less cumulative distance to travel than some other clubs but considering our season and our away form... its incredible support. Woking doing pretty well too and should bring 400+ to us.

Boston were segregated at brackley which was odd
No confirmed figure yet although I have seen 132 and 135 banded about. I estimated 120-130
The crowd is also disputed. Tannoy said 403 but Brackley twitter says a more realistic 440

Great effort... But only 900 at the game... Solihull back to their slightly inflated national North hardcore of 500 ir so

Didn't Solihull used to be Moor Green? I doubt they had anywhere near 500 regulars.
