2,346.

Eeeerrrrr ... okay!!

More like 3,346. Nothing like a shared gate to see dodgy attendances released.

That was the biggest crowd I've seen at a Heavy Woollen derby since 1991, when we had nearly 5000 at The Mount. Admittedly, even then Mount Pleasant had a much larger capacity than Ram Stadium, however I'd have said that at least 3000 were packed in today.

Yes either jiggery pokery to baffle the tax man or dewsbury are swindling the bulldogs out of their cut, which is a shame as we had the majority of support

Half time draw was £75......

Even on a 600 attendance its £100 plus at the mount.
What we're dealing with here is a complete lack of respect for the law

Being a good crowd and  a tight game,  might, keep the interest there for the next meeting and ensure another good gate.

Was good to see the ground full. Our away following was huge. If we can keep that many at our home games this season our average attendance will be much higher than last season.

I thought it was a good tough game and the new boys look good. Some solid defending out there and we still have 4/5 key players to come back in.

That figure seemed about right from where I was standing. No-one was packed in tightly and the crowd was spread around the ground much more than in the past thanks to the new terracing. Frankly it is a scurrilous suggestion to make that either club would seek to cheat the other out of any money in this way.

I'd like to think the chairmen of both clubs are of sufficient moral fibre not to stoop to any shenanigans when it comes to shared gates. I believe they also have a mutual respect which would discourage any underhand behaviour. Maybe I'm being naïve. but I'd be disappointed if that wasn't the case.

And another of PM's fantasies kicks in again.

 

Go on, tell me , just how do you deduce that Batley had the majority of support?

I wasnt at the game yesterday neither was MS but ive just been discussing the game with him and mentioned the attendance . the figure for paying spectators was correct and he laughed at the suggestion that it might not be accurate .As he said both dewsbury and batley are in the same boat financialy and neither club would " DO " the other on a shared gate .

GFDU, I reckon that's the top and bottom of it. The south stand was not as packed as it has been in the past, with the top terrace being used.  And I think it's a little insulting to suggest that either club would try to cheat the other out of money. It was a great attendance though and a great atmosphere too.
