In Topic: Sawyer hails record attendance

The stadium was capacity was increased for the day by Kirklees Council. This enabling a bigger attendance. It is correct that the ground holds short of 4000, as the new terrace can't be included unless it is covered.


Thanks for the confirmation, NR. Always good to know middle age hasn't killed too many memory cells.
Out of interest, what was the basis of the temporary increase in capacity?
I would assume the application would have had to be submitted well in advance of the good weather forecast. Were any contingency plans (for wet weather) required?

It won't be a full house and they do attract some dodgy fans...

The massive bonus for us all is that I will be able to attend this time - relief all round.

 

Well, that's at least one dodgy fan attending! :tongue:

Did KN say that the special voucher one in the season ticket could be used today for a free beer or did I dream it?

Was great seeing the ground looking so full on Sunday,what is our official ground capacity? Still seemed to be room for a few more in the corner of the new terracing,I'm hoping Bradford stays in the championship,Leigh gets promoted to Super League and Wakefield gets relegated,more derbies,bigger crowds.

 

I thought the official (licenced?) capacity at Dewsbury was a little under 4000. When the new terracing was opened it was stated on here that it wouldn't increase the official capacity of the ground because it isn't covered - when it rains, fans will try to cuddle up to Coolie and his mates in the South Stand.

The ground capacity may have been reassessed in the meantime, though.

Done. Hope you get something sorted.
