Can't think of one bigger in my experience back to the Watney cup era.

Since reforming it must be Bratfud City (~3,500), Chorley (1,800), Grimsby (1,600-1,800?), Luton (for some reason I remember this one: 1,172), possibly Tranmere, and of course the Guiseley massive in the playoffs (180).

Sheff Weds brought about 2000 a in the mid 2000s for a friendly. 

If Wrexham are in for the title when they play is it is their last away game on bank holiday Monday! Expect thousands!

Was that the one we lost 4-2? We all spent the game making fun of Trevor Hockey as I recall.

Is that the time the wall collapsed at the front off the skircoat where the Sheffield unt  fans were ?.  I’d say Man U brought more than that for the watney  cup I think there was around  19,000 in the shay that day & what a day it was.

Not sure if the collapse of the front part of the away 'stand' was Sheffield Utd, it may have been? Thought it was Huddersfield Town over the Christmas period when  that occurred?

That was in The Skircoat where the wall collapsed v Sheff Utd, Barrier collapsed over the other side of the ground where the East Stand is against Huddersfield. Boxing Day 2-1.

My memory was on the tiny stand on the Shaw Lodge side that collapsed (hoarding) part.

Hudds defiantly Boxing Day when it collapsed was the east stand now , Sheffield Utd has the home end in 82 amd think skircoat wall collapsed that day as well
