Bit of both I would have thought. For the first part, a lot of people regard
non-league football as "inferior" but would be attracted if we were in Division
Three. Secondly, I'd say that probably half of our away side fans bring down 50 or
less supporters. That would on the whole change I think as we come up against more
genuinely well supported clubs.

No, they were let out immediately, and that may well be an error of judgement, given
what appears to have happened to numerous Weymouth supporters on their way out. I
know it's happened many times before, but you hoped that we were going to get through
those two games without any trouble once the first one had passed over peacefully -
despite the press hype.
