John checked them for me. :-D It's amazing what a new stadium and a few cup wins can do for attendances.

I don't have averages on all seasons, I'm not sure thats right as the first game was over 14,000 and we had some other bumper gates.


One thing it does highlight, even after Hudds making a few finals, the fans aren't turned on.

You don't have averages but remember the first game had 14,000. There must have been some poor attendances after that to average less than half that first gate!

so you've won the Cup three times in recent years and still only manage a few thousand more fans than a poor team. It's a good job you did wint those cups or you' be looking at gates similar to Widnes.

3000 plus extra fans and a profitable business. Don't let facts get in your way.

Like I said, a few thousand. One day the bubble will burst and you'll be back to were you were ten years ago.

Only a few thousand? Bradford's crowds sure grew by more than that when they were up at the top!

Bradford is a city for starters, Warrington have never had massive crowds, but we're a sustainable business.

How many others can say that??


And always played in the top league
