Any confirmed details already available re. last weekend's attendances (particularly the Palmerston crowd, which seemed to be 6,198)?

Still waiting for some of the fourth round official crowds. I will post as soon as I have them.

Some sources speak of a crowd of 6,400 which seems to be inaccurate.

Ground capacity is 6,412, though for various reasons it was unlikely to ever be filled (some of the capacity for instance is on a terrace inaccessable to the public).

There was a delay in getting an official crowd to the press on the day, especially as there were so many of them so spread out. It would appear that some journalists, expecting a sell out, just took a pot estimate at the crowd and reported accordingly. 6,198 was the official crowd on the day. I would imagine it will remain so though the club secretary will have had a more meticulous check since so I guess it's not impossible it may yet be corrected. I doubt it though, that would tie in with what we expected.
