FGR support at Coventry

Postby Pitchfork » Thu Oct 19, 2017 9:39 am

Top League Two away attendances on Tuesday: I'd say our following was very impressive, especially on the heels of a 0-4 defeat, great that the faithful were rewarded with that first away win.

551 - Notts County
353 - Luton
223 - Mansfield
212 - Forest Green
179 - Grimsby
157 - Chesterfield

On the subject of attendances, our home crowds have similarly been far higher than last season. Of course away support at TNL has been strong, but the core home support is now above 1600. If the overall average gate crept towards 2500 we would be comparable with Crawley,Barnet,Morecambe and Accrington Stanley.

Bottom line, home performances need to be far better than last week's display against Newport.

I believe these are upto date figures for the lower end of league two attendances
Cheltenham Town 3,059
Forest Green Rovers 2,763
Yeovil Town 2,669
Stevenage 2,464
Barnet 2,070
Crawley Town 1,956
Accrington Stanley 1,860
Morecambe 1,452

All I keep hearing is how small of a club we are. We're not exactly getting 350 through the gates are we?

I did not sit in the away section at Coventry and therefore not included in the official away support attendance. Would be interesting to note roughly how many not included in the official total.

Interesting post thanks Pitchfork, especially with the nonsense on social media about us taking 29. I think we aren't doing too badly.

The frustrating thing for me about the Coventry game was that it was on a Tuesday evening and I couldn't make it, had it been a Saturday I would definitely have attended and persuaded some Midlands based relatives to come along too. Whilst it was a brilliant turn out I reckon we might have doubled that turn out for a Saturday afternoon game.
