The figures are in, the numbers have been crunched, and Bostik League statistician Mike Wilson has advised us that our opening day fixtures saw an attendance increase of 42% compared to the first Saturday of 2016/17.

The largest crowd in the Bostik Premier was the 1,131 who saw Billericay Town fall to a late defeat to former manager Craig Edwards and his Kingstonian side. In the North Division it was the 384 who watched AFC Sudbury and Canvey Island play out a draw, whilst in the South Division the highest turnout came in the Channel Islands, as the Green Lions of Guernsey defeated East Grinstead Town.

A total of 9,973 supporters turned out in total.
