I think the weather will have put loads off. It was wet and freezing. Not a good combination. Can’t say I really enjoyed myself down there today. Glad to see a win but I was also glad to get in my car and head home.
Think it would have been similar on a decent day. Alfreton are not attractive opponents with very low away support, as opposed to top of the league York. Much needed win though. I've not been so cold at a match for ages!
Alfreton are a horrible team that play horrible football. Am not surprised you could have got their away support into a Ford Galaxy. You’d have to have paid me 10 x the ticket price to turn out to see them. That will have accounted for some of the reduction in the crowd but at the end of the day the attendance was back to the “usuals” who aren’t going to be put off by the weather.
We could have blitzed York 5-0 the gate still would have been down today. 6th tier football against Alfreton isn't going to bring the crowds in.
Yep, the York attendance was a typical big game Charlie’s gate, today was back to normal regardless of the result last time out.
Yup, I'm one of them. Six hours there, four back for the York game. Can't face that drive too often. Fans have lots of reasons for picking their games and as has been said the level we are playing at isn't that attractive unless you are a die hard. Weather always a factor. Did the pies run out today btw?
a great win today but where did the supporters go that were at the york city game ? we need more support to help get of this poor league
Abetter question would be where did the supporters that were at the York game come from (apart from York)? Yesterday's attendance was much more the norm for us.
Well for a start off hundreds were from York. Lots of school kids got in for nothing at York game. many who don't come every day turned up (the so called floating fans) and the weather was nowhere near as bad for the York game. Sorry but some people just don't fancy freezing to death.

As has been said the next 3500+ gate is likely to be any play off football which we might get involved in. Yes some don’t fancy freezing to death. The majority who attend do so because they love our club not because of the quality of entertainment on offer. I personally have to pick and choose which home games I attend due to the distance and time involved with doing so.
