Attendances out that way.

Sadly, not as many good country folk attend football out that way as one might expect.
Having languished for a few seasons, the mighty Terras got their act together this time, but Weymouth's increase of 50% in gates still took them only as far as 48th in the non-league list, with an average of 780.
Salisbury, just back up after some fiscal shenanigans, didn't see a lot of change in attendance at the new level, averaging 627.
Meltdown merchants Merthyr got 508, Dorchester a depressingly poor 453, Taunton 429 and plummeting Poole lost 28% of their support as they dropped out of Connie South before an average of 408 speccies.
Banbury 385, Basingstoke 327, Chesham 297, Farnborough 291, death-spiral Gosport a respectable 263 (which is 42% down on their Connie South gates), King's Langley somehow pull 255 and Tivvy got 249. Tivvy used to get 500 - 600 averages when a mid-table Southern Premier team in the early-noughties, having won the FA Vase twice at the end of the 90s, but promotion hasn't moved their gates a jot.
The rest get fewer fans in than Hendon. Frome 238, Swindon Supermarine 207, Walton Casuals 159 - a 141% increase on 16/17 - Hartley Wintney 151 and Beaconsfield 110.
