Last season's stats
Average attendances since 1965/66

Torquay United, 30/03/2012

The away attendance was read out over the tannoy towards the end of the game. I heard it given as 556 (I made a note of remembering this as my parents used to smoke 555 cigarettes). However, the official club website gives the attendance as shown. But the Barnet Times report also quotes 556, so I wasn't alone in hearing this.

There was one more home game this season to last season. Therefore the last game's running averages shown for last season have been used twice.

The following plots are shown:

Home Support: The Blue bars at the bottom. The number of home supporters (but see note below).

Away Support: The maroon bars at the top. The number of away supporters (but see note below).

Combined: Any green bars. This is the total attendance if the away suport (and hence the home support) is not known at the time of preparing. This will usually be shortly after the game. Note that some of the stats above cannot be updated when only the combined average is known. These are the: average home attendance; highest home attendance; lowest home attendance; highest away attendance; lowest away attendance.

Running Average: The pink line. The average total attendance up to that match number.

Last season's average: The yellow line. Last season's average total attendance up to that match number. See note below.

Home Average: The brown line. The average home attendance up to that match number.

Last season's home Average: The green line. Last season's average home attendance up to that match number. See note below.

All averages are the mean.

The away support is taken from either Barnet's or the opponent's official website, whichever publishes first. Where neither publish it the figure can usually be found on the excellent
Downhill Second Half (DSH) website. Although in this case the figure has probably been gleaned from Barnet's messageboard where the away attendance is usually posted by someone listening to the match commentary (on which it is usually announced). Whatever the source it is usually published in Barnet's next home matchday programme, where it can be verified. Where the source is a 'Bloke in the pub' I shall be checking these in a forthcoming Home programme as they have yet to appear online and should be treated with extreme caution!

Where the figures are not yet available the whole column is green (total attendance is widely publicised).


Last Season's Average
There are rarely exactly the same number of home games season to season. This is mostly down to how many home draws we got in cups, and the amount of progress made in the same. It can also be down to numbers of teams in the league changing (eg promotion/relegation).

Where there are more games this season I usually start doubling up some of the previous season's games towards the end, and note from which number this applies (using the same figure two games running). Where there are fewer games this season I usually start skipping some of the previous season's games towards the end, noting which numbers this applies to. I ensure that the last game of each season is used for the final figures.
