Saturday’s home attendance of 1,102 for the Fleet’s win over Tonbridge Angels means that the average attendance in league and FA competitions could climb into four figures should the club extend the season into the play-offs.
Indeed Fleet’s league average this season – the best in Skrill South – is currently only 11 down on 2012-13’s Conference Premier season, no mean feat given that included two extra home games, the derby with Dartford and the visit of several well-supported ex-Football League sides.
Vice chairman Peter Varney said, “We have been very pleased with the attendances this season and it was great to see us break through the 1,000 barrier for a League match on Saturday. The support this season both home and away has been brilliant and the supporters have a key role to play as we approach the business end of the season.
“It would be great to see a big crowd here for the home match with Eastbourne Borough on Good Friday as it can make all the difference.”
