Weve sold 1700 for todays game apparently. Hopefully lots of home fans going to boo at Rusk, should be a good atmosphere- lets hope both teams morons behave, this tie has historically been a bit 'naughty'.
Final figure was indeed 1700.

Excellent numbers, your biggest since 2008 I see and biggest ever in NL.

With a gate of over 7700 there must have been 6k+ home fans, seems a lot if many were supposedly staying away?

We would've had supporters in the home end too as our tickets sold out in under an hour. Cracking effort from both sets of supporters, just not from both sets of players.

Tbf I didn't see anyone in the home sections jump up when you scored, and apparently the club cancelled a load of tickets sold on Friday based on postcodes

But yeah, a great turnout from both sets. Not sure whether GMP will be happy or disappointed it all passed off without incident

Why am I getting it left, right and centre from Grimsby fans now? I always thought your lot were alright!

It's affectionate
Yes, of course it is.

And it provided an opportunity to get in a sneaky side swipe against Lincoln, our co-founder rivals of football league division 2 in 1892, who have never played in the top division or an FA Cup semi-final, who couldn't muster more than a thousand or so fans down the A46 to visit us for years, whereas little Scunthorpe managed to fill the away end, and embarrassed themselves with a ridiculous banner last time we played that said we'd be forever in their shadow...

Around 180 Stones at Kings Lynn.

Looked more than Dagenham had there when they said they had over 200.

Website supports that figure (as an approximation) and I agree with it too. Pleasantly surprised as I knew a few who were prioritising Torquay over King’s Lynn. I genuinely thought we’d struggle to hit 3 figures this weekend, but went way beyond that and what an atmosphere too!

APL Brotherhood what with Weymouth and Yeovil taking decent numbers too.

Think we will have a low one tomorrow night at Woking - had some treks (Aldershot, Kings Lynn, Dover, Yeovil) so far and Wrexham and Southend away in the next 10 days too which most of the lads I go with would rather do.

Getting no bloody fuel probably won't get help either :lol:

Why are you lot even playing them tomorrow? I get that they have had some matches postponed but it seems weird that their game vs you is on. Or was this one always in the fixture list?

Be interesting to see how many we take to Bromley tomorrow. We sold out the initial allocation of 700/800 (can't remember if the seating tickets were additional or not) for the opening day but it looks like some were returned when the match was postponed as tickets are still available on our site.

It was meant to be on the 18th but got postponed due to COVID. We hastily arranged a game away at Yeovil so still played on that date and I guess the league have insisted on us replaying the postponed game as soon as possible as well.

It's made our fixture list look really lopsided as we now don't play this Saturday but have 5 home games in a row in Feb/March. After the Southend game a week on Sat we will have played 7 away games and 4 home.

It's a bit of a shambles from the NL as per.

Didn't Cheltenham have 2k at Hayes when they won the league?

650 sold in total apparently, but there could well be a load of people who didn't bother getting refunds.

One year? :lol: It's about half an hour down the road, you should be selling that out every time. To be fair though, it's a shite away day.

Think we did both times but can't remember I only went once hopefully never again.

In that case Thomas Feaheny has had an absolute mare

Thinking about it our higher attendances may have been play off games, so they probably don't count.

None of our local rivals sell us many tickets. I blame North Wales police, they are inept so don't want the hassle of policing a large crowd.

The farce that is the Chester bubbled matches have to be seen to be believed.

GMP had a field day on Saturday. Proper easy pay day for them, you'd think it was Galatasaray and Fenerbahce the way they were lining up.

Fuck all happened that I saw. The odd skirmish near the Bobby Peel after the game.

They're still trying to lock 9 of our lot up for the game at your place over 2 years ago. It's absolutely mental, think the Stockport lot that got done for it have been to prison and come out already it's taking them that long!

Latest update has Wrexham top, with a special mention to FC Halifax 2008 for managing less fans on the road than Weymouth. I've also chucked in estimates for the missing figures based on how many fans looked to be there in the highlights.

I've also knocked up a weighted attendance figure, which takes into account distance travelled (on the road, using the quickest route by car on google maps). In theory, it tells us what each teams' averages would be if their trips were all 100 miles away. Torquay have the longest trips this season with 210 miles being their average, while Barnet and Boreham Wood average just 104 miles per trip. It doesn't take into account sellout crowds, which is a factor I may take into account at some point in future.
