Footymad is quoting an attendance of 51 for this match. None of the other usual sources - including the SFL site and the official club site - has any figure.

Anyone there - or knows anyone who was there - who can verify this figure or not?

I know Elgin wouldn't bring many, it was a foul night and there was the massive counter-attraction of Falkirk v Dundee United on Setanta but even so...51? 251, maybe. 151 even but 51?

Just realised this post is same as the one I started after (Fiftyone and counting) and like I said there, my fear is that it is correct, and if it is there has to be some system put in place for ambitious non league clubs to gain entry to the SFL

My mate was at the game and is the reporter for the local paper so he'll know. I'll ask and get back to you. I'd be genuinely surprised if it was as low as that.

Apparently the actual crowd figure was 237.

237 apparently doesn't include season ticket holders. That could push the actual attendance to 270.
