And remember when we won the 4th Division we had the lowest average crowd of any team that had ever won that division, little over 3000.

Everton and Liverpool are on our doorstep they take some of our support that is why we played on Friday evening for a while. :idea:

And the previous lowest support for a Div 4 title had been Stockport with 9000.
People harp on about well supported glory days when the reality is it was a couple of seasons here and there with crowds that were still poor for the division.

Even in the post war boom our best average league attendance was around 8000 but the average for the division was around 10000.

Elsewhere, Chester won again, the battle at the top between York and Kiddy was drawn and Boston dropped points.
19th place Kettering was 2-0 up away at high-flying Boston. They were pegged back to a 2-2 draw.

The league is too unpredictable this season. I haven't won an acca in months :lol:
