42 chorley at gateshead
I'd say 40-50 boston at Gloucester. Was segregated weirdly enough so may get a figure

Still no official figures. I have seen between 400-600 quoted in various places, so I will go for the lower end, until anything official can be found.

Great stuff though, as it's not a straightforward journey by rail from Southend, road between 3 to 4 hours, traffic dependent. the crowd was 1,335 according to the ESPN site, so over 25% of the total attendance is a great effort.

I reckon about 500ish, we filled the seats and had at least 250-300 on the terrace. There looked to be more in the away section than the home ones, I was quite surprised when the tannoy said 1335 as the crowd.

I have a bit of a soft spot for Dulwich as a few years ago we went to visit my Wife’s Sister in Camborne and we went to Land’s End and I had my Grimsby top on and so this guy started chatting to me about football and he was a Dulwich fan and he was really excited about the next season as they’d just been promoted and he was massively excited that they were now in the same division as Torquay.
Really nice bloke and very complimentary about my GTFC too so I’ve had a soft spot for them since that day.
Great story that, love stuff like this.

I met a Shrewsbury fan last week while out dune bashing and he wished Pools good luck for the rest of the season. It was an incredible moment, it really was.

Terrible. Isn’t it like 45 minutes?

It's about that but we really have been terrible this season. I can't criticise people too much for voting with their feet.

We have never had a big away following despite solid home attendances.

It was segregated at Bromley but have seen no official figure. Would estimate 60 Moors fans.

If it is, it shouldn't be!

Why should Stones’ supporters at Boreham Wood have to pay double that of what home supporters are being offered?

We (Torquay) had a discussion about this a couple of years ago when we played Dagenham and had to stump up something like £21 for the away end, whilst home supporters were paying something like £15. Not sure what the final outcome was, but if you're paying to watch your team at any stadium you should be paying the same as anyone else in the ground (ie all terraces one prices, all seating one price).

Spot on - nothing wrong with offering promotions but the same discounts should also be offered to away fans

Especially as most of the away support will have to stand in the open.

I have said before, that if terrace tickets are offered to home supporters and not away supporters then seats should be offered at terrace prices to away fans.
Clubs are fleecing fans by only offering seats.
The league brought in a rule for this a couple of seasons ago but some clubs can’t segregate seats and terraces for away fans like Bromley and Kings Lynn so did away with the rule as it could not be enforced across the division.

It's a weird one as any first time 'home' supporters tomorrow night would have to pay full price, the offer is only available to those who have attended one Boreham Wood match prior. Normally I'd say we're being petty, but given some of the morally questionable practices that they've implemented in the past (and possibly present), I'd hope we're challenging this.

Nice of them to ensure that you could get out of the way of the downpour that engulfed London that afternoon.
Was pretty horrible conditions to be watching football in. Last time I was there it was a scorcher! Pretty poor that every side has a roof with the exception of the away end.
Then again back when we were in the conference north there was often no option to go under cover when it was pouring down (I got completely drenched at Guiseley a few years ago) so at least now we are in a position when it rarely happens.

bearing in mind it’s our second closest game, it seems a boycott seems to be in place, so expecting a poor away following.
