I've just had a look at last season around Christmas.
Swindon a place about the same size as Northampton with no real competition from other sports were only getting between 1-1.5 thousand extra even though they were at that time top of the table. So it would appear that getting the locals interested is not a problem just for us.

I think you are right about the rugby, I would think that the majority of their support is from the county rather than the town,
Its from the area not the county. I know a few Saints fans, and they have told me, that they have buses coming in from all over East Anglia. It makes sense, given there is no other option for them to follow their sport.
One other point. I cant remember where we going, but I was standing waiting for our away coach to turn up at Jimmys End. This was 10am. As we stood there, a coach came past with away rugby fans. I think that it was Cardiff. We aimed to hit the pub at noon, they hit the ground at 10am. What are they doing down there to get people there so early? Five hours before kick off. I think that we have a lot to learn.

The Cobblers has always been the County's team, which benefits with sizeable towns with 70K= populations. A previous club secretary told me that 25% of our season ticket holders had a MK postcode, so potentially a large catchment area!

Nope, unless there’s a mention of the “well wishers” army you know you are safe. Actually, I miss old Dave.

Wrong, that’s the district or borough of Swindon NOT the town, Wikipedia is really not the best place to get information from either.

Now you know how I felt BBS, and to make matters worse Evers, of all people, called me a temperamental Snowflake! Grin

I suppose my references to the potential due to population but being overlooked by sugar daddies is connected to me of being a "Proud Northamptonian" without having much to be proud about!

All through my lifetime the civic leadership has been pathetic and is now reduced to bleating on about our wonderful local independent shops when the ones that really influence town centre footfall have done a bunk along the A45 to Rushden Lakes. Whilst I suppose we have to grateful for the very existence of Sixfields where else would build a "Community Stadium" with such a small capacity relative to the size of the town?

Added to which having watched the football club for over 60 years spurning every opportunity to consolidate at a higher level being philosophical doesn't come easy. Rant over.

Sincerely hope you can recognise a leg pull on here. It’s what they do!

The first line was a light hearted response to the earlier posts, the rest just me sounding off. I would have hoped that was fairly obvious Evers!
