Attendances have been very much better this season at SJP. This was clearly hoped for and proved to be correct. The atmosphere at home Saturday games has been great. Unbeaten since the opening day I believe.

Unfortunately cup fixture clashes with virtually all our scheduled home Saturday league games has meant that a home league game on a Saturday has become a very rare event. I acknowledge that this has been due largely to our great FA Cup run, but it does pose questions. If FA Cup ties were all played midweek clubs would have a stable level of income from home Saturday league games, rather than constantly having the risk of having to split proceeds from cup ties. Midweek league games inevitably attract lower attendances than Saturday games.

Hendon have been dealt a raw deal in my opinion due to FA competion dates clashing with home league games.
