No no no no no you guys don't understand.

Banks's should be Banks'. Who's named that, fucking gollum? Dirty filthy sneaky banks's'ses.

Only Smallsall could misspell their own ground name for decades.
I believe both Banks' and Banks's is acceptable. I am no English expert but we actually had this conversation at work recently and both could be used. A quick look on a famous search engine brought this info back.

1. Use an apostrophe + S ('s) to show that one person/thing owns or is a member of something.

  • Amy's ballet class, Lisa's car, Robert's car, Ross's room, Ross's sports teams
Yes, even if the name ends in "s," it's still correct to add another "'s" to create the possessive form. It is also acceptable to add only an apostrophe to the end of singular nouns that end in "s" to make them possessive. In this case, you can show possession for Ross either way:

  • Ross'
  • Ross's

Grimsby at Swindon today, around 500 - 550 I’d guess looking at this:
View attachment 12594
Was sat in the middle of all that, we thought maybe 700 but Swindon don't announce it, just the whole gate numbers. Back rows were empty and I think that area holds 1200, it felt more than half-full, but unless we get an official number your 500/550 will do.

Our supporters at Swindon all looked old. We often have a few elderly fans but today it was really noticeable. Bar 71 (the away bar at the ground) was like an old peoples home outing.

The Merlin also had a 50/50 split of pensioners and younger Town fans in.

A good proportion of the oldies maybe London / SE Mariners? We'd only sold 250/300 tickets up in Gy so a good proportion of pay on the day if 500 there.
