Any important information is always on official site so I always check there. Darlo Pete have you contacted the club to get decision overturned or assuming they will read your post?

This could well be a lock out .Absolutely ridiculous allocation of space given they know full well that we will have over a thousand travelling.
Obviously keeping their new stand for the 40 or so Spendy fans that will fill it.
Tossers.
Why are we suddenly and obviously taking over 1,000? I bet we don't.
We are Darlo! We know our shitt! If we say it's 1-2-0-1-1-3-0-1-1 then you better believe it! La la la oo, la la la oo (clap, clap, clap, clap)

The combined number of people on that terrace in the two pictures is around 100, maybe a few more. It will be rammed. Tomorrow they will be cramming maybe around half the attendance into one restricted side of the ground. We are on a roll, winning and playing very well and it's New Year's Day and very close by.. A lot will travel.

I smell a bit of a rat over this. Why has it only been public the day before the game?

On another note, no mention of Gary Martin. Wonder if he'll be available for Gloucester.

Darlo fans have always created an intimidating atmosphere behind that goal every time we have played them which is to our benefit.
Just wonder if The Pride have cottoned on to this and nullify to some extent the impact our travelling support has on the team.

That side holds a thousand and with a block of seats behind the goal there will be ample room.

Roll on 3pm tomorrow.

Our support has been like a 12th man everytime we’ve played there. When we beat them in the northern league there was 2670 (Though I’ve been told the real figure was more like 3k but they weren’t meant to have that many in) so God knows how many we had that day. It’s always felt more like a home game so it looks as if they’re finally trying to stop that and break their duck against us. Telling us a day before is poor though it’s not as if all our fans live close by (Including myself)

It's not all ticket so plenty of room in the home end if required.

The capacity of that side is not sufficient to safely accommodate the number of fans that will be travelling. It's ridiculous and potentially dangerous. It should have been made all ticket if they were going to do this.
That side was around 5/6 steps deep wasn't it? If so, full length of the pitch it should accommodate 1,000 easily?

We only took c800 the last two times.
Why two times have you never heard of the word twice oh master of the Queens English ?

If anyone thinks there will be plenty of room, they're in for a shock.

Should there be any trouble at this game because of over loading one area of the ground, the only people to blame will be spennymoor for their shortsightedness in their shortcomings,
Common sense should tell them all they need to know about this fixture, it's not as we haven't played them several times over the last few years. COME ON SPENNYMOOR DO THE RIGHT THING. don't encourage trouble by overcrowding.

There is nothing wrong with using "two times" at the end of that sentence. You could use either that or "twice".

Unlike "has" instead of "as".

They(Moors) have had 6 months to get this right and have made a deliberate decision to inconvenience Darlo fans and only announce it at the last minute. The previous games away at Spenny have all been night games so we do not really know how many fans we will have but very poor from Spenny. They have gone down in my estimation and hope we give them a good hammering.

Because none of these would make sense, in the context of the point being made:
  • We only took c800 twice.
  • We only took c800 the twice.
  • We only took c800 the last twice.
  • We only took c800 the last two twice.

I think the block of seats will be 200-250, and i think you will have small section behind the other goal.
It will be a big crowd as 1504 for gateshead game, with 244 away fans, and i fully expect more Spennymoor fans for this game than what turned up for gateshesd, and more darlo fans than gateshead, hope the frost dont put game in doubt though.

Let's just see how it goes.

I don't think it matters when they announces what they ahve announced, different if they had made it all ticket and annoucned late.

The simplest, safest and most logical step was to house the Darlo fans standing together behind the goal, with a small overspill onto the side terrace if needed. Spenny would still have had three sides of the ground. This way of doing things could be asking for issues.

SpennymoorTown just posted on twitter that we have the side terrace and they are catering for 900.

I would have initially thought that'd be enough but of course I had failed to take into account that our last 2 matches at your places were midweek night matches.

Suddenly 1,000 or more doesn't seem that improbable. We could have a problem then.

I have got to say that some of the comments towards Spennymoor have been totally uncalled for and embarrassing at best. We have always been welcomed over there with little trouble and managed to squeeze in. Tomorrow will be no different. We will have all of one side and seating behind the goal no different to what we got at Harrogate.

Have a great New Year and get down to the Brewery Field to cheer the lads on. They are going to need it tomorrow.

Spennymoor Away

Post by al_quaker » Tue Dec 31, 2019 4:20 pm

We took 891 to york last New Year’s Day. Now, of course York is a more attractive fixture, but spennymoor is closer than york and this season we are on a roll, whereas last season was awful, so I wouldn’t be surprised if more than 891 travel to spennymoor. I hope they’ve got contingency plans in place!

“Catered for 900 away fans” is a strange way of describing the situation too. What’s the actual capacity? Is it 900, or is there food available for 900

Surprisingly amateurish from spennymoor this

Having sampled that terrace and seen recent pictures and I'd be amazed if 900 people plus could be accommodated comfortably and safely on there.

Why? Several steps deep and full pitch length, it'll hold 900 all day long.

You'll see tomorrow. And another thing, why's it being called the West Stand in their ground guide? If that's a stand then we had a Polam Lane Stand at Feethams ;)

Agree with Lucan here, it's very narrow pretty much from the dugouts down to the seated area behind the goal.I reckon 1000 Darlo fans and will be a nightmare squeezing them all in.

If memory serves,the terrace from the top end to the dugouts is 4 steps and 3from the dugouts to the bottom end.Its gonna be snug
On another point,have your bait before you get in the ground.£5 for a burger and £3 for a small tray of chips earlier this season when I went to see them play Chester.

The catering is in the middle of the west’stand’ so no chance of getting to it, unless you are stood in front of it. Same if you need a jimmy.
