Saturday’s memorable trip to the Midlands saw the Coasters record a monumental victory at the top of the Vanarama National League.

Danny Rowe’s second-half brace ensured a 2-1 win on the road for Fylde, on an afternoon when Fylde fans were in full voice!

The game saw a bumper crowd at Damson Park of 1588, which was boosted by an estimated 350 fans who made the trip from Fylde, a gate only bettered this season by Salford City and Wrexham.

The previous four fixtures at Damson Park saw an average of 989 fans through the gates, meaning Saturday’s National League fixture was a 60% increase.

With their brand of free-flowing attractive football and the league-leading success in Danny Rowe, it confirms that Fylde are now one of the top draws in the National League.

The Fylde faithful were in fantastic voice throughout the game, and were crucial in cheering their side on to a memorable win.

“Our fans were fantastic on Saturday,” said AFC Fylde Chairman David Haythornthwaite.

“With the 14 long trips to London and beyond this season, it’s not always possible to get big numbers at an away game.

“Saturday was a chance for them to get down and make the difference – and they will all be pleased they did!”

The win at Solihull Moors followed up an important league win at home to Wrexham the week before, and Manager Dave Challinor believes his team have thrived in these atmospheres.

“Every player wants to be playing in these big games, with vocal fans, and this kind of support is always extra motivation,” said Challinor.

“Having the following like we did at Solihull was fantastic, and I know the lads were buzzing about it.”

The Coasters are back on the road tomorrow travelling to Ramsbottom United on 2nd February in the FA Trophy – before making the trip to Maidstone United in the league on the 9th February.
