Some of the LL attendances are sobering, but not in a good way.

In 4 or 5 years time it'll be a league full of SPFL also rans anyway. I would say that's a more sobering thought  :whistle

I make that Bonnyrigg 454 and Kelty 436 average attendance from their four games, better than 7 SFPL clubs.

Very likely one of the sub-100 teams will be relegated this season and replaced by a 200 or 300+ team from the EOS.

You're seeing the effect of Kelty's challenge and the arrival of Bonnyrigg and Mightily-supported Berwick on top end figures. I make it 10 LL crowds of over 400 already v 1 HL and 1 EOSL.

But of course at much lower prices - thus their actual gate revenue will likely be lower

All rocketed exponentially: Gretna moving from NL went several times up, Annan from EOSL more than doubled, Edinburgh City from LL trebled, early days but Cove from HL quadrupled.

You're probably right.

To be fair, all the teams you mention were watched by very few in their pre-SPFL days. Not hugely surprising that they've increased. We probably took more to all four than their previous average home crowd. A better indicator will be teams with a decent pre-SPFL following.

Well they had crowds in the 100s or 200s.

If someone like Kelty or Bonnyrigg in the 300s or 400s go up they mightn't multiply by those sort of degrees, but I'd be astonished if they dropped.

Did Solihull bring much of a support?

Looked to be about 150 there I think counting the groups of yellow.

So around 1,000 "locals", great stuff. Good turnout at Bonnyrigg today as well against a team with no support.

It's a shame Linlithgow v Bo'ness and 'Shire v Kelty were kyboshed... However a bumper cup crowd at Kelty and likely a good turnout at Jeanfield (not seen).

Crowds over 500 at Bonnyrigg v BSCG (top clash) and 400 at Tranent v Musseburgh, almost 300 at Crossgates v HoB, over 200 at Blackburn v Broxburn, almost 200 at Whitehill v Nitten etc. do validate the derby policy.

Vale v Edusport modest 57.

Can someone explain to me how some of these Lowland League teams survive?

As a Clyde fan I am particularly interested in Cumbernauld Colts who drew 82 fans to a recent game v East Kilbride.Surely this is unsustainable?
