Lowest Attendances

16 November 2016

Shrewsbury Town’s lowest attendances revealed

Last week’s 3-0 win at Middlesbrough in the Checkatrade Trophy was played out in front of 308 fans, including around 20 away supporters.

This was the fifth lowest attendance recorded for a senior Shrewsbury Town match and the lowest Town attendance in the history of the EFL Trophy.

So, we decided to ask you on social media to name the lowest.

It was a little bit of a trick question as the lowest came in the Shropshire Senior Cup Semi Final win over Ellesmere Rangers in 2014, where Ian Dawes’ youth team actually took centre stage in what was classed as a first team fixture.

Take a look at the top 10 lowest attendances below:

1    141    v Ellesmere Rangers    (H)    Shropshire Senior Cup Semi Final    2014/15
2    210    v Bridgnorth Town    (A)    Shropshire Senior Cup Semi Final    2001/02
3    235    v Porthmadog        (A)    Welsh Cup Round 3            1973/74
4    300    v Oswestry Town        (A)    Shropshire Senior Cup Semi Final    1984/85
5    308    v Middlesbrough U21s    (A)    Checkatrade Trophy Round 1        2016/17
6    310    v Shifnal Town        (A)    Shropshire Senior Cup Semi Final    2007/08
7    321    v Bandon United        (H)    Shropshire Senior Cup Semi Final    1996/97
8    345    v AFC Telford United    (A)    Shropshire Senior Cup Final        2014/15
9    386    v Shifnal Town        (A)    Shropshire Senior Cup Round 1        2000/01
10    400    v Bridgnorth Town    (A)    Shropshire Senior Cup Semi Final    1997/98
