Lowest league attendance    Message 46357Mon, 09 April 2018 21:05  Go to next message

Out of curiosity, with the attendance nearly hitting the sub 200 mark on Saturday, if anyone knows the lowest home league attendance for the last 20 or so years?

I expect that is one of Spencer's few "achievements". Whatever it is will be beaten on Wednesday anyway!

That King's Lynn game was one of the best results we've had this season. I would be pretty gutted if I had missed it.

A Ciardini and Cureton masterclass which deserved a bigger audience.

Thanks Nigel.

Would it be possible to include the finishing position in the league for each season?

If you look carefully 2015/16 was the low point. The trend is now upwards :-)

2016/17 was the promotion year, which included play offs, and 2017/8 includes, a 4 times higher than normal, Hereford attendance.
If those two are omitted the average is definitely sinking!!

Draw your own conclusions why!!

No attendance figures on the website for some reason, but using the programme details, this season has seen 5 midweek games and two Bank holiday games in the League.

21 League Games so far produces a 294 average. If the last two also get around 200 each, I envisage the final average would be approx. 250/260!!

Second worse attendance in 20 years, and the average has now dropped to 285!!!
God we used to get that for reserve games in the Hampshire Cup!!

Good to see some progress eh??

It just proves the club hasn't been saved, just prolonging it's death.
