Pretty much comparable dates for the first three home league games of the season......(holidays, lack of schoolkids etc)

5053 home fans per game average 2016/17
5135 home fans per game average 2017/18
4470 home fans per game average 2018/19

Relegation seems to have cost us about 10% of our fans.

That's because many neutrals will look at a few things before going to a game.

1/ standard of opposition
2/ yes, recent results
3/ and yes, position in the league


You can add to this..
4/Price (£24) of watching 4th division football against many traditional small non league teams, doesn't make us an attractive option.
5/ The quality and professional outlook of the stadium, being non league looking does little to attract new and lapsed supporters which affects the big match atmosphere that attract fans, also lacking a large welcoming supporters bar selling food and beverages etc is something needed for cold tuesday night's.
6/ Lack of direction from the clubs owners these past 3 years, we have no future plans in which our support base can engage and get involved with,
thus giving fans an excuse not to turn up, if they dont give a **** why should l..
Basically as we have been these last 50 years😂

You had to get 6 in!  Grin

"Dad, can we go and watch the Cobblers on Sat?"
"No, I don't like the lack of direction from the owners"
"Who are the owners dad?"
"Dunno, Eric Northover I think. Enough of the questions...get upstairs and do your homework"

Behave Beds!  Grin

Saturday vs Cheltenham will see the lowest Saturday attendance for some years. Schools only going back this week so probably too soon to arrange big groups to fill out the East Stand, our league position isn't good and the non-league sounding opposition won't attract the floaters or fill the South Stand. Could be looking at 4,500 max. This despite the fact that our football is more pleasing on the eye and we are due to give somebody a mauling. KT was right, we don't need to expand the capacity.........

He must've  had great foresight and knew we would return to being a struggling  L2 side for the next decade,  playing against little previously non league teams.
And he also knew he wouldn't be hanging around to witness it.
Marvellous 😂😂

What would you do to get attendances up? Bit of a difficult one with the economy as it is.

Any major efforts in attempting to attract new supporters to little antiquated Sixfields as it is, is futile  its quite an embarrassment to the town and doesn't lend itself to civic pride and for locals to want to be feel apart of it.
The only way to reverse the decline is to have a working redevelopment plan in progress that involves capturing the intrests of whole town and catchment making them feel part of what is being proposed, timelines, dead lines, gaining investment, sponsorship etc.
The trust could collect ideas from the support base as to what we want to see happen to the ground, take a vote on the best workable suggestions  and put it into practice with hopefully new owners who are happy to work with the supporters to get things done right.
Just about polar opposite of how we are now.

I would like to fully state my position in a clear and concise manner on the above.

You do absolutely nothing for me and never will. You don't speak, think or act for me in any fashion at any time in the past present or future.
