Aberystwyth Town's crowd of 463 for last night's home triumph over Port Talbot Town ensured that the Black and Greens' attendance figures for 2013/4 are the highest for ten years.
Last night's attendance brought the overall figure for the Corbett Sports Welsh Premier League (WPL) matches to 6432, or an average over 16 games of 402. This represents a 21% increase on last season, and the highest average since 2003/4.
"It is clear that the attacking style of football Manager Ian Hughes has brought to the Club is popular with the supporters," said Club Marketing Director Thomas Crockett.
"And the Players and Management have regularly paid tribute to the support which has helped ensure Town have the second best home playing record in the WPL.
"Friday night matches help enormously to boost WPL crowd figures, and it is true we have also put on a number of Promotional events this season, such as a Sponsors Day, two Schools Visits, four Student Promotions, a Family Fun Day and a Club Photograph," said Crockett.
"So the hard work of Tom Bates, Stuart Jones, Luke Crocker and Chris Heffernan on the Marketing Committee has been a really important factor in our attendance boom."
"On behalf of the Club I'd like to take this opportunity to thank our supporters for their fantastic loyalty over the season, and reassure them we are doing everything possible to ensure we can bring Europa League football to Park Avenue in July."
