1150 Shots in a crowd of 5171 at Kingfield. Given Covid isolations (me included) that is a fantastic turnout from both sets of fans

I think Woking based the away attendance on ticket sales since they didnt bother opening any turnstiles. Glad I got there early as it looked like completely unorganised chaos.

Our highest ever league crowd. Shame about the result.

Good to see Aldershot fans not celebrating the last minute goal, as per the rules invented on Boxing Day.



Thanks for the usual 3 points

300 Tonbridge at Maidstone

...and only approx 295 of them avoided the bottles and other missiles being hurled by the Maidstone boys...and, yes, they were boys (the smell of Lynx was overpowering at times). 3 of the little scrotes crying for their mums when escorted out by security.

This is not the first time this season that away fans at Legoland have been subject to this kind of treatment. What a lovely place to visit.

Kinsella being a fenian c*** again?

I suppose you could argue this. But I suppose you could argue he has been abused for 90+ minutes. Also, importantly, he won rather than scraped a draw against 10 men. See you next year.

What difference does it make whether it’s to get a draw or a win, a 90th minute goal that means something will always be celebrated with limbs especially in a Derby match.

So I’m guessing for your 88th minute equaliser today the Aldershot fans just politely clapped?

Well I doubt the keeper was cupping his ears... which is the tinpot bit. Fans will be fans and that's fair enough

To be fair, I cheered the equaliser but didn't go crazy because it looked like only being for a point.

I did go crazy at the 95th minute winner because it was totally unexpected but who wouldn't?

Also, the issue I had Ross was the over celebrating a draw against 10 men AFTER the game - have no problem with the celebration when they scored

Have totally lost track of the Woking/Aldershot goal celebration controversy beef. Can someone explain it in layman’s terms?

Aldershot claimed it was tinpot that we celebrated an equaliser in the 94th minute. Apparently you’re not allowed to celebrate when it’s against 10 men.

I bloody love a good injury time equaliser/winner. I don't care if it's against Pisstwiddle Rovers, I'll still go mad.

I claimed it was tinpot for the keeper to spend a minute at full time goading the East Bank having just about secured a draw against 10 men. Fan's didn't come into it and neither did celebrations for the actual goal. Anyway... he got his yesterday so it's all good. Again, great home numbers and two good occasions as ever.

Not you, but one of your Hampshire fans said the fans were celebrating as if we’d won the league.

But yep, a good money maker for both clubs. And we’ll both almost definitely be in this league next season.

Some big attendances below the National League at the moment.


I was planning to go to that Dulwich game but it sold out the day before, never thought I'd have to buy in advance for it!
Went to Hastings on the 1st, crowd was 2017, which I think the tannoy guy said was a league record. Chatham had 1876 for a step 5 game the other day as well, that is some going. It's good to see the lower reaches being so well supported.

If they continue to progress well in the league, you have to think Dulwich have outgrown their new ground before it’s even been built for them.
According to my Facebook feed, a lot of that Chatham crowd were disillusioned Gillingham fans, tired of paying £26 for relegation football.

Yeah, it's looking very much like they've undershot the capacity of the new place if they're gonna be banging on the door of this division. Their fans have started complaining a bit that they're currently filling it as it's too packed and the views are worse, saying that they're comprising the match day experience for the regulars and thus their community spirit ethos. The hipsters and yummy mummies are in for a rude awakening at this level, some of those values are gonna have to be compromised the higher up they get.

What’s the new ground’s capacity?

I went the weekend before the first lockdown after our game at Woking was called off, most were there for the beer and had no interest in the football. No pitch side beer allowed at this level which will hit their revenues and a few fans. It was a decent atmosphere people having a laugh but at this level people are more serious about their football which might be a surprise to their hipster mentality when 3-400 fans from a proper club turn up.

New ground capacity is 4,000.

Yeah, I've been once and felt pretty similarly about their crowd. They did the key rattling thing. I prefer Clapton if I'm gonna go to a non-league match relatively centrally, but their current makeshift ground is a bit of a pain to get to. Dulwich Hamlet have definitely got the day out bit sorted, being so close to Peckham and Dulwich.
