And we could only dream of getting a 5000+ gate so overall the biggest and best club all round went up.
Football is played on the pitch, not in the stands. Alfreton won the league, but didn't have the biggest attendances...

No but they had the biggest wallet, and money talks now.

Anyway, to lighten the mood I notice Walshaw was booked for diving today......!!! :D :D

According to their wikipedia page Telford have a large potential fanbase, so an extra 3000+ fans crawled out of the woodwork for the play-off final.

Wonder what we could have got for a final, probably just reach 3000, anyway well done to them, they're a conference setup really, and also gets one of the big guns out of the League for next year.

I hate the play offs, at least justice was done with the 2nd place side going up.

Interesting to see Guiesley got a penalty today too, how many did they get this term?

Not including the penalty shoot out, they have only got 4 penalties ( scored from ) this season.  Mind you last year was a different tale.

Telford average for the season 1845

Ours 1401

so a difference of 444

Play Off Semi-finals

Telford home leg 3442 - Nuneaton away following of 399 = 3043

Ours 2630 - Guiseley away following 102 = 2528

so a difference of 515

The play-off final is a much bigger pull for both the casual fan and neutral - I'd hazzard a guess We'd have had 4000+ at a play-off final (we had well in excess of a 1000 at last years play-off final away). Telford are a bigger club but not by as much as the 5500 crowd would suggest.
