Clubs been at this for years, always under reporting attendance figures. I'd say a majority of lower league clubs do it, especially any club who accepts cash on the day.

They certainly used to. I remember in the 90s that was the case at pretty much every club. There was always a chuckle when the clearly too low attendance was announced. I can't see I've noticed it too much, not in this league at least- maybe its different in League 2, it may be too obvious to get away with in the NL at some of these places

Haven't seen an official GTFC number - someone tweeted 520 tickets sold. Looked about right.

How many Stamford fans were at Stockport?

Around 200 Aldershot and Bowers & Pitsea - game was unsegregated so won't be an official number

Out local journo praised the 150+ Stamford fans so around that
161, so just shy of 3,000 home fans. Think that's our best turnout for a qualifying round. (Salford, FCUM and Alty games having more away fans)

Edit - forgot about Chester '14, that would've been more

Around 130-140 Dagenham at Wealdstone, not the 4-500 their club said they would bring. Pretty sure they won’t get the top end for the league game on 30/4.

Not away but kind of, our replay against Marine will be played at Nantwich. 1000 tickets have gone on sale and we're struggling to sell that.

We've only put them on sale to season ticket holders, and the only way to access tickets is to pick them up from the club shop between 9am and 6pm tomorrow, and 9-5 on Tuesday. No print at home option, no mobile tickets and no plan in place for exiles or those who work normal hours who can't pick tickets up.

It's hilarious how badly we're run in some respects.

Why is the replay at Nantwich?

Our pitch has to be re-turfed.
Surely there's a better option than Nantwich; we had over a thousand there for a Cheshire Cup game a few years ago and it was rammed. Witton, or Widnes, or something...

Our home support has been absolutely superb so far.

The 6'000 plus gate against Aldershot was some gate for a game like that.

I know I was itching to get back with such an enforced time away, and there have also been some great attendances across the board so there's definitley that element.

If Rusk could get us playing some half decent stuff and get us up there, we'll sustain it too. But it's a big if with Rusk and this team at the moment.

Who advised that? Deluded whoever it was, our recent form put lots off this one. We will bring much more for the league match if we’re in or around the the play offs come April, we always take a minimum 300 at London league games.

Think we were at it again on Saturday, at the game it was announced 214 from Chertsey, but they are saying they sold 300 and it looked more like 300 than 200 in the away end.

Would of thought via your match secretary, I’d expect you’d get allocated the side terrace and seats, behind the dugout area. If the game is important to you then and tickets sell out quickly and you need more than that then I expect it may get reviewe.

Our police estimated “800+” at Curzon.
Think the crowd was 1400 so could have been more than that by all accounts

What is the seated allocation at Dagenham?
Clocked they have only put seats on sale for us at £21 instead of the terrace at £15 so wondering if to hang on.
Think we will take 4/500 probably so hoping they stop trying to cash in and open the terrace like they normally have whenever i've been.

No they cash in like others not offering away fans terrace ticket.
Rules need to change if sides don’t offer terracing they should only be allowed to charge terrace price to away fans. That will stop this con.
