We was on a loser today with the crowd, Bristol City at home, Swindon at home and Bristol Rovers at Cheltenham, and the weather, thats where all our transient support were, I know of at least 12 who would normally come to the New Lawn when their teams are away who were not there, but at least our core 600 turned up.

Tommo, the Woking game is on Friday, not Saturday, dont miss it !!!


Right - thanks for that. Just had a bit of a panic I wouldn't be back from work in time but of course its Good Friday so no problem. As witht the Halifax game, the crowd may be lower due to the rearrangement. NOt if we are on a roll of two wins on the trot though..... here's hoping....

i agree crowd was very poor but ive look at other attendances today and bar camebridge think no one topped a 1000 so perhaps it was just a bad day for ppl to go and watch footy but as been said we have a good core of fans that turn up rain sunshine gales was dissapointed not so many in rockwall army can some one explain why have they moved to open terrace dont think we shall get many more for tuesday dont know if rain percist whether it will be on or not hope some one from club can post early if its going to be called off to stop ppl traveling long way

I think the poor crowd can be easily explained - with the competition elsewhere on and off the field, nasty weather and rearranged date much was against us. A couple of years ago it would have been 200 lower still. Hopefully the 3 consecutive games will have an average crowd of 900+

There were 3 clever attemps to hold the crowd in for Tuesday night when the refreshment hatches under the main stand kept descending at half time - all good fun but could have been dangerous and perhaps it needs explaining! :oops:

it was far from brilliant but we got the result we needed and fleetwood got two goals - both superbly taken although he should of had his hat~trick later in the half. robbo did well in goal and noticed that there was a lack of back passing towards him. the defence held well and joner played really well at centre back and its good to know he is contracted for another season with us. les afful was superb down the right side and outjumped their left back many times to win the ball! welsh also had some good play with tonks down the left and then fleets and celi did their job in the centre and it was great to see last seasons successful central midfield partnership of clisty and brough back together. the crowd was terrible. seems to have been pretty flat recently following the stafford & oxford utd games. obviously other sporting events and the weather would have put them off but we need at least a 1000 on a day like that.

That was a great result today the boys were really up for it and got what they deserved 3 points and closer to the play offs only 4 points off them now bring on York and Woking. I have a feeling we will be in the play offs come the end of the season.
A moment to chersih SSF scoring with his head. SSF did so much running he looked absolutly shatterd by the end of the game. He has come good at just the right time.

Thought Robbo had a great game yesterday.

My only concern is the attendence we are on the edge of promoyion and we can only manage 600 come on guys the boys need you to get behind them for the rest of the season.
. Goals are dreams with deadlines.
.Think little goals and expect little achievements. Think big goals and win big success.
.Goals are not only absolutely necesary to motivate us. They are essential to really keep us and dreams alive.

So where still in the hunt for the play off, one last massive push...

Thought we defended well, Johna was very good.
and Robbo did ok still a few shaky moments but shot stopping did well

but lets be fair they where very poor,

Will be interesting to see the team for tues, now Burton and Hardiker are back
still think they both will start

We’re a club that looks to the future, but our identity is forged from a rich 128-year history. Founded in 1889, we’re one of the oldest football clubs in the world.

In 2017, we were promoted to the Football League for the first time in our history – which means we can spread our sustainability message to an even bigger audience. FIFA recently described us as the greenest football club in the world. That’s quite an accolade, and it shows how we’ve been able to bring together football and environmental consciousness at the highest levels of the game.
