Coalville Town attracted almost 850 fans for their 2-1 win over Hitchin Town on Football for a Fiver day yesterday (Saturday).

The club made the gesture as a thank you to their fans and - with no Leicester City game on the day - supporters responded.

They were rewarded with another victory that keeps the Ravens second in the Southern League Central division.

The club tweeted: "Today's attendance is 849, thanks for your incredible support."

That had fans asking whether it was a record for a league game at home.

Hitchin Town took the lead after 62 minutes through Jake Hutchinson, but Coalville responded with an equaliser three minutes later from Elliot Putman - with Tim Berridge netting a 72nd minute winner.

Chairman Glyn Rennocks received praise for the reduced prices and the support it attracted.

He Tweeted: "A big thank you for the tremendous turnout and support today, lots of appreciation for our reduced ticket price, so thanks for that as well."
