In the last 10 years cup aside am I right in thinking Doncaster then Bradford would be the two largest and what where those numbers?
I am expecting if we get the allocation around 4K will travel to Halifax on Boxing Day.

Donny’s the biggest I can recall in the league in the last decade, although we took a similar amount (around 4K) to Notts County not long before.

Could we take 4K to Halifax? Quite possibly, if we’re still going strong. I believe they usually allocate half the old side stand to away teams, but in my experience we’ve always been given the large terrace behind the goal. That holds around 2,700, so if they gave us both we’d be in that ballpark.

Trouble is, Halifax’s home crowds are only scraping 2,000 this season, even though they’re doing well. Even if you allowed for a 50% increase (which is pretty big) with it being a big game and on Boxing Day, they’d still be significantly outnumbered (and as a general rule, away crowds tend to be more vociferous than home crowds, pound for pound).

Would they want that in what could be a massive game for them? I’m not sure. It would be great from a Town perspective though.

Kidderminster must be up there but nowhere near 3/4k


Some arrive by motorbike
Some arrive by train
Some go there by taxi
And some go on a plane

No matter how we get here
We all end up one way

If I remember correctly that first game of the season at Kiddy was about 1800 (officially]

They did in the late 80s when we took about 2200 in a gate of about 2500! Maybe exaggerating a little but that’s what it felt like.

Slightly before my time (watching Town at least), but even I know about the burger van...

Wasn't that the opening day of the 2015/16 operation promotion season? - I seem to remember reading we had more away supporters at that opening game than all the other away sides in our division put together! I hope that's true as it's always amused me!
