I will be there and I suspect will be joined by a four figure following if we can beat Sutton and (please god) Bromley do us a favor.
Nice to know you're going, four figures if we beat Sutton, really?

Definitely, last away game of normal season always has a good following. Full of happy clappers so no miserable tw@ts allowed.

Sure Halifax will realise this and be planning accordingly.
Last away game of the Season? Bank Holiday fixture on top of a win on Friday?
Can see a big following.

The Shay is a better ground than average in this crappy league. Views are good as well. The catering was an issue last time I went - a caravan with two in it. Some folks missed most of the first half as they were so determined to feed their faces. And the lovely toilets. Peeing against a black gloss painted wall. Quality. What greater incentive to gain promotion?

Having watched the first half, I was massively jealous of the lucky sods who missed it queuing.

The Shay has come on massively to what it used to be like back in the 70's - 80's when the away end was just a grassed / mud slope which was situated where the home fans now assemble behind the goal.

Catering - lots of clubs appear to be stuck in first gear - same mentality regardless if Bromley turn up on a Tuesday night with 20 fans or Wrexham turn up with 1,600 (as per Solihull / Chesterfield / Salford City). Many fans confronted with massive ques and the possibility of missing part of the match just don't bother.

I can't knock the bog facilities - a black gloss painted wall of considerable length with a roof is fine - it's grounds like Solihull, Sutton and specifically moneybags Salford, where they are happy enough to sell fans as much ale as they can but only provide portokabins big enough for about 4 fans to use at a time.

This would suggest that Wrexham fans will be housed in the usual Skircoat Stand - running alongside the pitch which is all seated with a roof and consists of 7 blocks of seats some with restricted views because of the supporting roof pillar - 1400 / 1450 capacity would be about right - they could house all home supporters in both the opposite stand & home terrace.

Can't find any capacity for the new North Stand / terrace behind the goal which is normally never opened unless they are expecting a large away following - perhaps they are planning to use it as a potential overspill if more than 1400 away fans turn up which could well happen as we took 1600 to Solihull, Chesterfield and Salford - if we beat Sutton on Friday and given it's the last away day of the normal league programme on a BH then there is a real chance we could exceed this figure by quite a few.

We took 425 to Barnet last Saturday but that wasn't on a BH and just up the road in comparison to London.

No advanced tickets (yet) so pay on the day does not bode well at the turnstiles for potential congestion - seems the days of handing money and change over are still very much with us - lets hope they don't run out of change.

You don't really think the away side would accept no income from a one off match. League games are different as each team has a home fixture.

That must be a huge financial incentive for Solihull to not play at home
