It’s the result that matters

1-0 doesn’t sound great but it was fairly comfortable in the end and a clean sheet is always welcome.  And we’re in the next round!

Thanks to Dominic Whyley for sponsoring the game and promising to sponsor every home game in this year’s cup.  Let’s hope for home draws all the way to the first round then.  Thanks also to John Fairman for sponsoring next week’s game against Ramsgate.  You can find details of match sponsorship packages here and please feel free to come forward.

I wonder why the crowd (153) was so down on what we might have expected (250?).  A lovely day to spend with the family, lots of live football on tv?  I don’t know.  Interesting looking at other crowds that we are not alone on this.  Chelmsford got over 1400 for the game against us last week but today less than 800 saw them, Boreham Wood – Northwood only got 150, Hendon got only 128 at their home game against Aveley and Harrow Borough had 186 in their home defeat against Hitchin.

Any thoughts on why people don’t mind missing the FA Cup?

  1. Hi H – I have had a look at attendances for our first 4 League games going back over the last 4 seasons – interesting results. I will do an article when we have done 4 this campaign – excluding Wimbledon games which obviously skews. But memories ,as ever, appear short. First two gates are actually up on last season!
