Fair play to those that attended but that seems quite low from Bath since they have a few London based exiles too, they've taken 40-50 to us previously for midweek fixtures.

I'm going to reiterate a real bugbear of mine and that's clubs in this league with the exception of Maidstone segregating teams and not announcing the away followings. Hemel, Weymouth, Billericay and Havant have all segregated us and we've not had an official figure from any of them.

Pfft...some clubs in our league don't even announce their home attendances.

They seemed quite happy to when they were getting 1500+ nearly every week in conference North winning season and the 3800 odd v chorley on boxing day...
they've been lax with putting out attendances and even worse with away fans numbers this season. I still don't think they have given an official away figure for the new years day match against us. The whole attendance was 2409 with an estimated figure for away fans (from Barrow's estimate) of 1325. Their fan numbers have decreased partly due to being shit this season and also due to Blackpool fans watching Blackpool again.

If you are talking about Barrow and the away figures, not sure how accurate they are ,the 10 on Tuesday was quoted by our media man on the text coverage , being there I though we had 8 fans there although one of our northern exciles came with a friend that supported Liverpool
Last season after entering the ground we were told that it was no longer segregated , which lead to some of our fans who travelled by train, gaining admission through home end gates by your club house, the year before we were told that the away entrance was at the other end to where we were , and that there would be a steward outside, only to walk up there to find no stewards and no open gates , but hey ho points for the number of people watching , ell not yet anyway

it is hard to get accurate figures then - but the reference to the Fylde game above is more to do with them not reporting any attendance figure - and highlighting if they could be outnumbered at home on new years day then their non reporting of figures is because their fan base is crumbling (mainly because of Oysten leaving Blackpool) and they are trying to hide it by not putting figures out. Whilst you hate to see any club go out of business you can see at some point Fylde maybe ending up like another hobby club - Rushden and Diamonds...

I remember going to barrow December 2014. Lost 1-0 no segregation. There were away turnstiles if needed but we had 19 on the bus plus about a dozen others on a Saturday and they gave it at 80 away fans over the tannoy! I think they just counted everyone who went in via that away turnstile

The away fans traditionally get the 'W' section of the seats - but if it's raining, home fans often sit there too. They probably just did a head count in that bit of the stand.
