Well the cup competition drought is over and with a trophy. As one of the leading critics of the poor performance in cup competitions last season I would wish to say well done for getting a draw. The trophy cabinet has a trophy! Hurray!

244 is poor, especially with all the effort put in by the backroom staff,Radio London there, pre match game etc

The publicity machine needs beefing up, where were the free tickets for kids?

hey ho

There would have been more people there if there if more posters were displayed around the borough to publicise the game!

It was disappointing to see that the game has not even had a mention in the Non-League Paper. The paper should have carried an in-depth report on the fixture which would have provided excellent publicity for both clubs, Supporters Direct and BBC London's new Non League radio programme.

I don't think posters or the non-league newspaper is enough. We need to get into the local pubs and sell to the men and into the local schools to the children. It is an excellent product for the money just need to persuade people that they can watch a local game and stagger home (and still not have mortgaged the house for the season ticket for the bigger clubs and their overpaid superstar player)s.

The lack of a report has, of course absolutely nothing to do with the editor of the NLP's new rival sitting on the forum wink

I don't think that should have anything to do it with it. There was not even the result from the game, pretty poor show i think.

Now if we had been FC United or AFC Wimbledon.....................

I have to agree with Donkey. Although the flyers/posters are a good idea, it doesn't mean to say that we will increase our gate just because they have been displayed.

There needs to be a concerted effort to go out and get people to come to our games not just expect them to attend. What we then do with them once they are at the ground is another matter.

I think you only have to look around the ground on a match day to see whether there are any 'new' faces, old or young, and to realise that many of the supporters have been coming for a while, ever since our ESL days.

Just where are the new people and are they interesed in watching non league football. We may think they are, but we may be wrong.

I think we need to concentrate in promoting ETFC in the local schools. If we can get the youngsters to come along by promoting free entry for them when accompanied by paying adult.

It seems to me it is always kids that want to spend their parents money.
