Kind of obvious isn't it? A day when people are encouraged to go and support their local non league club instead of the Premier league teams and we don't get to benefit again.

Yep, 1-1 v Stockport. NLD 2016 we were at home to Kiddie (0-1) but played on the Friday (anyone remember why?).
2015, away at Mickleover.
2014, away at Droylsden.
2013, away at Clitheroe.
2012, home to Ashington.

I doubt non-league day would make any difference to our home game, if we were actually playing at home on the day.

That was the point it would not of made any difference to our attendance , I'm sure we played on the Friday night because of the EGG chasers I think..

Well we got about 250 more in for Stockport at home last season (on NLD) than Stockport at home this season, at a comparable time of year. Whether that's to do with Non League Day is impossible to know.

Kiddy game in 2016 was moved because of a clash with a Bishop Auckland game if memory serves me correct.

We were talking to some Stockport fans who reckoned a lot hadn't travelled due to the train strike on Saturday

Disagree with you there Andy, they brought through quite a few last season and caused some bover as well.

Think you are right there. That is what happens if you do not have your own ground :(

They make out they are well supported away from home when in fact, they are shocking for a club of that size.

When we played there in Jan 2017 we took 465, which looked more like 600/700.
When we played there in April 2018 we took 411 for a nothing game.
