Attendances
« on: September 18, 2016, 11:40:43 AM »
Out of 80 cup ties yesterday Lynn had the 11th highest.
These were:
Stockport County 1425
Blyth Spartans 1065
Kidderminster 1050
Salisbury 945
Ebbs fleet 855
Sutton Town 823
Dulwich Hamlet 822
Worcester 721
Osset Town 694
Chelmsford 675
KINGS LYNN 674.

Next weekend I will look at the step 2 and 3 fixtures.Our game against Chippenham should be a good one, as I believe they are a footballing side and not like yesterday's visitors.

Can we make the top ten in the attendance list!

So did I Rod maybe a bit of calculated counting. The lads certainly deserve the support the way they are playing and the spirit in the side is plain to see. COYL

Like most professional clubs it is likely Lynn count season ticket holders in League attendances, even if they are not there. Not sure but may give part of the answer as of course they have to pay to get in at Cup games and are included in the attendance figure naturally.

Are there many season ticket holders these days?
If you have achieved all your objectives, you have set your targets too low!

When I started this subject I included the attendances to show that Lynn is a well supported club not to create dispute as to accuracy of the figure for Saturday's game.
How could the number be increased still further
Next Saturday Norwich are at home . The choice of two good games at the same time.
What about Sunday football at the Walks?
A few miles up the road Wisbech were the first semi professional club to play a game on a Sunday( albeit back in the 1960's). At that time they were getting about 600 through the turnstiles. For the aforementioned game against Dunstable the gate was 1200. ( The headline in the "Daily Mail" on the following day was "Double the gate, double the take in sleepy sunny Wisbech).
So, on a Sunday, let's have " kids for a Quid", encouraging the families; let's have the players and spectators from the local leagues who play on a Saturday; let's have the Norwich supporters to cheer on Norfolk's other top team!
