Postby faerun exile » October 5th, 2017, 2:12 pm

Away averages so far this season. We are doing pretty well 7 games in, plus we have "local" trips to FGR, Cheltenham, Swindon and Yeovil to come. Would prob average above 400 if there hadn't been a limit at Exeter.

1230 Luton Town
1153 Coventry City
1042 Grimsby Town
850 Notts County
799 Exeter City
763 Mansfield Town
600 Swindon Town
488 Carlisle United
483 Chesterfield
392 Crewe Alexandra
385 Port Vale
371 Newport County
366 Cambridge United
334 Colchester United
295 Wycombe Wanderers
254 Stevenage
234 Barnet
233 Yeovil
211 Accrington Stanley
171 Cheltenham Town
141 Forest Green Rovers
128 Crawley Town
66 Morecambe

So as it stands, around 11% of our average number of home fans travel away.

I wonder how that compares to other teams.

Grimsby must be heavily skewed by local fixtures. They brought 243 to Newport yet their average is over 1000.

Probably pretty high. Although these stats tend to be more interesting at the end of the season, 1,000+ at Swindon, FGR and Cheltenham will make our figures even better. Now how to get the figures up at home is the problem. We know from the Notts County game the potential is there.

In reply to my own question.
Grimsby have played five away fixtures totalling 5210 travelling fans, of which over half (2650) were at Chesterfield on the opening day of the season. Next highest comes 1252 at Mansfield. The other three are 770, 295 and 243.

Don't tell me the Barcelona of West Sussex are second from bottom, obviously those huge home crowds they get don't travel well

And worthy of note, is that by way of comparison, the average number of away fans VISITING us at Rodney Parade is 218..... so we take considerably more away than other clubs bring to us.

Good point. I think that the 218 will increase. We haven't entertained any of the big guns yet - Coventry, Exeter, Luton, Notts, Swindon and maybe Lincoln. All will be in the mix for promotion when they play us.
I suspect we will travel in good numbers to Cheltnum and Yeovil and if we can maintain an away average of 400-450ish then that will be the highest since we returned to the FL.

Could be lower than expected with Coventry and Luton moved to Friday night because of the rugby.

Cov is on good Friday so should be a decent gate. If Luton are still flying along then would think they would be close to selling out.

It will make a change if they do. Luton's away following has generally been very poor previously.
