Always thought that we've travelled well in our numbers wherever we go.

I'd be cautious of the numbers we had at Spennymoor, it's well known over a thousand were there but Spennymoor haven't released the official number as they were letting people in through the main gate and not counting people.

Don't forget we took 1229 away fans down to Walsall for the FA Cup game, seriously impressive seeing that away stand full and that last minute equaliser going in.

Impressive average imo for this league, ours would have been much higher had we played Bradford Park Avenue away (would have taken at least 600/700), Gateshead (would have been at least 1000 up there) and you could even say Southport had we had the chance of the playoffs.

Looking forward to the season being back and I can schedule in more weekends away following my club all over the country. #UpTheDarlo

Yeah if you look over the 4 seasons you've been up probably nobody has taken more to yours than the other way consistently. I know your ground is one of the least appealing in the league for away fans but for a place that has decent road and rail links it's one of the least visited grounds by away fans whereas it's rare for you not to take 3 figures even the longer distance ones (not sure how many exiles go)
Think you're only one of the current league who've took more to Boston than we have the other way every season (minimum 2 seasons)

Blue figures along the bottom are each team's average, so York top it with 471

Decent effort by us that. I think it would have been higher if the season had played out with big away followings at Farsley, Gateshead and Leamington likely. Still, to average nearly 500 away fans in 6th tier regional football is quite respectable.

In fact, our average would have put us 3rd in the National League. Of course this doesn't tell the whole story because we have reduced travel times compared to those teams and were top for much of the season (Wrexham and Chesterfield by contrast have had terrible seasons), but it does nonetheless show that the club are fortunate to have that level of support I think.

But London is only 2 hours by rail from York, its very well connected. I'd say only the south west games Yeovil and Torquay and perhaps barrow and Dover outposts would be overly difficult from York in this seasons conference

According to co-owner Oliver Ash, about 600 “attended” the Maidstone livestream against Hemel Hempstead. About half the viewers Havant claimed when we played there. A worrying drop to about a third of a good home crowd, despite a strong start to the season.

That’s about the drop you’d expect, surely? Got to remember that loads of people who would attend together but buy individual match tickets will watch it together and only need one stream.

Yep, exactly.

We had 600ish watching for our game against Dagenham.

I know for our FA Cup game against Prescot Cables the other week, we had over 1000+ people streaming the game at £7.99 a pop.

That was just the figure of people who paid to watch that stream. Including season ticket holders we had just under 1100 watching the game.

Why not perfect its a lot more than I thought would watch these streamed games.

We had 2,000 , incl season ticket holders , watching our Stockport stream, which went down to a 1,000 (not sure if that includes s/t) V Wrexham. No news re Chesterfield but would think in the region of a thousand again. All pay in the FAC on Saturday, so expecting little more than 400-500 v Hayes.

Quite a lot of our fans would have streamed it too so you might have had more. We had 3500 for Hartlepool apparently, 1500 for Woking.

Looks like some weird by-product of Coronavirus is that it’s making matches de-facto unsegregated.
