Well Canvey are bound to get more as canvey are ryman prem and many people predict southend to do badly and also maybe financial problems do you think many will flock over to park lane on a satarday instead of roots hall

In a word no, personally i don`t believe we gain or lose many if any fans regardless of when Southend are playing or how they are doing in the league.

I have noticed that when Southend are playing away that we do pick up a few of their supporters, also over the years i have seen a few "floating" supporters come our way when Southend have been struggling (although it doesn't involve vast numbers)Have to say it works both ways though, i knew someone that i thought was Canvey through and through, at every game, all kitted up in club colours, then when we dropped down to ryman 1? I next saw them......wearing Southend colours.... in football, what comes around, goes around, at least with some of the supporters......

That reminds me of a letter printed in the Echo when our drop was announced. Someone said the club showed a 'complete lack of ambition' by dropping out of the Conference and that he wouldn't watch us again.

We will have more than last season, I'm convinced of that. However, this being a tougher league, we may not win as many games as we have done for the previous two seasons, so it is by no means a certainty.

We do get a few supporters from Southend and other clubs who come to watch us when they are away. Similarly, some of our fans (myself included) are not unknown to pay a visit to the likes of Southend or Grays when we don't have a fixture. Supporting Canvey is an emotional experience, sometimes it's nice just to go and watch a game and not really mind who wins.

i dont really think our promotion will gain us many fans, but the premier league is a better supported leauge so we will get more away fans turning up. i think our average gate will be around 370, up a little on last season but not much. did we really have that many more when we were in the conference or were there just more away fans? hopfully im wrong and the fans will come

370 was our average in 2006/2007. I'd expect more than that.

I believe that we can push for a 450 average this season

Should hit over 500 at the start then its all down to results, as usual at this level. How we play helps to keep the faithful, but the floating supporter wants to see a winning team. Lets hope we start by winning then win again and again.

I reckon 450 is achieavable. We should get crowds of around 800 maybe more for the likes of Dover, Dartford, Ricay and possibly Hx.

I think we're capable of a full 100 on our 06/07 average of 375 (credit to another). Whether we'll get it or not is another matter and will have a lot to do with our results and away support. I'm not sure we can do it on our own.

i assumed that we only had an average of about 300 last season. if it was 375 then an average of 450 shouldnt be a problem. the away fans alone will do that

We averaged 325 last year, a drop of 13.3% from our first ILN campaign. Still, I reckon 475 is possible.

you are always more likely to get more "floating" fans the higher up the leagues you are.
Many people who support league sides will not watch ryman one standard footy but some may decide to watch ryman prem as the standard is better
The same will happen the next step up and so on.
My dad wouldn't watch us in the ESL or ryman one north but watched a few games in the ryman prem last season because it was a decent standard
