They have done it every time we visited, the worst one was FA Cup match last season they did not even have 150 home fans, so few we counted them. Wonder if they can break their record of 52 tomorrow at ours.

Bromley reckon 160.... that is way off the mark. Most Gulls who were there have said anything between 250-400... some creative accounting going on at Hayes Lane?

Also, aren't teams in this league supposed to allocate a certain amount of seats for away fans?

I think Bromley and Ebbsfleet are the only ones who don’t. Pretty tinpot, especially if it’s raining.

Our away followings at Bromley always seem to be suspiciously low, they always seem to a ignore a number of away fans when announcing the attendance. Apparently you have to ring in advance to book a seat at Hayes Lane

Looking at our club TV highlights of Bromley game certainly looks 300 on the far side. There were some in seats and that would have been around 50 more.

Can't believe clubs are allowed to put fans in uncovered stands at all in this day and age. This is England after all not Spain, you're fairly likely to get some rain.

Should be a condition of entry to the EFL at the very least to have a roof on every stand. How long have Gillingham had those uncovered "temporary" seats for away fans?

Just the 16 years.

I can see why logistically it may be awkward for Bromley to do this (they’d have to repartition that side terrace and give away fans a portion next to the new stand) but there’s no excuse for Ebbsfleet.
