I'm not sure that's true. We're well supported for the size of the Town, here's a site listing attendance as a percentage of town size https://www.somersetlive.co.uk.....dons-grimsby-2266318 . We have a bigger area in terms of NE Lincs, but the teams above us also have lots of towns around them without football clubs.

Looking at league 1, we're still doing well.https://www.plymouthherald.co......d-portsmouth-2295902


Ok well I give you Burnley for starters. Check the average gate there prior to them hitting the Prem they have a lower catchment area than us but they do a hell of a lot more community work and they have far more competition from neighbouring Clubs.

Please show me any example of Town really trying to make an effort to get in the untapped support in the last 40 years? I don`t blame Fenty for this in fact I will go even as far to say on his watch Town have done far more than ever to drag bodies in based on what I have seen. Proper marketing people will be involved when the new ground comes and if it`s sold to joe public correctly they wont have an issue filling seats with bodies. Likewise Blundell Park should be seeing SOLD OUT signs in it`s final Season based on the nostalgia we all have for the old girl.

I will wager you need hang around for 3-4 years to see that more or less completed Pete .I expect work to start early next year in terms of actual buildings going up ,I may be wrong but thought I read the new YMCA would be getting started early next year?

That would make me 75 mate, I think ( hope ) I might be able to manage that.

If this development takes as long as everything else that happens around here you can take that dash out from between the 3 -4 years .

The population of Cleethorpes should be included as we are two towns merged in effect.
