Yes This is entirely down to whoever the commercial manager is, he must do a hell of a lot of unseen graft. Well done whoever you are.

To be fair a big away following helped to swell the crowd to this magnificent figure. Hope the Tinsley Char-a- Banc made it back down the M1 safely to Dar Dar land.

Nah there was a few neutrals hiding in there with them myself included. Good game that could have gone either way until Fev cut lose.

He is called Paul Taylor. A cracking lad, Fev thro and thro. He is the son of Ricardo Taylor of FRISA fame who helped with support and advice getting BISSA off the ground.. I am a Bulldog and have to say big wraps Fev for your consistency over the last few years, well done to all of you.

There is a coincidence with the 2500 figure it also happens to be Sheffield's accumulative attendance figure for the season.

Don't know All I do know is that crowds are improving year on year the community team worked very hard over the last 2 weeks to get this crowd up and it worked. Just think what it could have been if Sheffield had a good following

Yes it did. The trick is to get them back next week.

 

I remember us getting summat like 7000* to Don Valley to watch us play Carlisle in 1992.  Great game, 6-14 down at half time, Daryl sent off, came back to win 32-14.

 

Guess what - back to 1400* the following week.

 

 

 

 

*I'm not big on attendances and I can't be bothered to look it up, but it was summat like that anyway.
