Shocking attendance at RP this evening, perhaps the Dragons could look at closing the Compeed Stand and only using the Bisley for their 'home' games? ;)

Embarrassing themselves further I see.

They'll be quadrupling the rent for us at this rate. Who in their right minds would want to watch a very poor team, with a questionable moral compass and no discernible identity.

An update on our future from someone who knows would be most welcome.

They even borrowed our Tim to do the announcing.
If that crowd was 3,332 then County's against Oldham was 7,000

Heard that they include season ticket holders in attendance figures if they attend or not?

I'm a bit torn about this because of great memories following NRFC before I switched to watching County, but looking at what's best for us now it has to be sharing with one team rather than two.

Ideally it would be County and NRFC with the council owning the ground, but needs must.

I quite like RP getting a bigger profile as a venue for football.
