Buffs attendance stats would appear similar to most other sides at a similar level despite being a fairly large town.
Support tends to comprise of a hail rain or shine core and then numbers will fluctuate re success, weather, time of year etc.
Its fine to be forward thinking but it is what it is and clubs have to cut their cloth re wages they can pay and likes of ground development accordingly.

1 step would be 4 the constant bickering towards committee members over parks,facilities etc 2 stop n get behind the team,as that us lost a real Buffs man off the committee, coz of the hassle he was getting and he was the main reason we have so many new sponsor boards round that park!!!

Just heard of the resignation. If true, that's a real loss to the club. As you say, responsible for the large number of advert boards around the park. I hope he reconsiders, but if it's causing him grief, then who can blame him for resigning. The should we stay or should we go stuff is causing uneccessary in fighting at our club at a time when the club needs some unity.

Sad to hear of his resignation but he was sickened by the attitude of many Buffties who attended the last disastrous PUBLIC MEETING.   Most of them did not know or appreciate that he was the man responsible for canvassing the local businesses who pay for their boards around the pitch, or don't really care.

That's happened before,  Ian Cashmore was sold to the Winton Rovers for £1500 a few years ago, which was necessary to pay the wages.

With the Nay-sayers sniping away don't be surprised if Colin Boyd steps back, and Kilwinning is running out of individuals prepared to put both time and money into the Buffs.

On the report of 142 attendance at a league game was that just for gate-payers or did it include Season Ticket holders?   Without counting heads I judged the crowd to be around 180 to 200, still not sufficient to greatly improve the club's finances.

When Irvine Meadow had their tussle with the Inland Revenue they had guys with buckets inside the ground soliciting donations to their rescue fund.  Maybe Buffs could do the same.  I worry that the guarantee of £100 for the Draw will leave a pittance for the Development Fund if the number of purchasers falls even further.

At away games we always buy a draw ticket, strips of 5 or 10, and even when the crowds are substantial the payout is usually just £10, so the club gets a bigger share.

Fairly simple economics my friend. It was an open secret that McKenzie and Fleming went to the highest bidder so wages for them and some others will be a very significant expenditure. It’s also a gamble for a club to budget on the likes of gate income.
Prob with asking for more from core fans and sponsors is that you cross the line and risk pissing them off as they will probably relate to poor business management.

142 is a really poor attendance, I estimated about 200 on the day, but poor regardless. We had more at district league games. 

Answers on a postcard, what's the solution ....

...

Crowds are down in all teams, take Pollok v Glenafton last Saturday Scottish replay crowd was 781, 5 years ago that crowd would have been well over a thousand imo

Not surprised,1 or 2 higher paid players have not delivered this season.Long run in Scottish will bring the crowds back.

I think the short answer to that is no.

Regarding McKenzie being on the transfer list does anyone know if this is from a playing point of view or financial reasons. Either way it’s a shame because the past few weeks his confidence seemed to be coming back after starting the season really well.
