Buoyed by the sales of half- and mini-season tickets plus a greater number of people turning up to pay through the turnstiles, the Fleet enjoyed their eighth four-figure crowd in succession with the 1,185 attendance at home to Truro City on Saturday.
With the average attendance currently standing at 1,235, that’s a 31.38% rise on last season’s 940 – with Kent derbies against Margate and Dartford still to come.
Vice chairman Peter Varney told FleetOnline, “The support for the team this season both home and away has been outstanding. Our objective this season was to increase the average home attendance to over 1,000 and it is now 1,235 so we are making good progress.
“The next target we have set ourselves is 1,500 and I am confident that with the attractive brand of football we are playing under Daryl McMahon, attendances will continue to rise.”
