I get to see Weymouth 2 or 3 times a season at home..a very good friend lives down there.
They get crowds of about 400 +/- and have no real local league club,I suppose Yeovil nearest.
They have all volunteers at home games,supporters are welcome to travel on coach with team to away games and supporters hold raffles on the coach to help pay towards travel costs,they do pay to travel as well.
Last season,the supporters club raised cash to keep an on loan player for rest of season,it's fairly amazing what you find out what happens behind the scenes of non-league clubs.
Slough Town,another of the clubs that share Beaconsfield were,at one stage knocking on the door at top of conference.They had to move out as they couldn't afford to stay at their home (it is still there,bar used weekends).
Hayes,they have 5 'home' games left,4 at Beaconsfield and last game of season to be played at Hendon,I can see smaller crowds.
Then,look at Hereford FC,reborn in same way as Wimbledon,but still playing at Edger Street,they are getting 4000 +/- crowds in the league below Hayes (evostik Southern) Hayes did amalgamate with Yeading,and sold their ground for redevelopment and the monies to rebuild Yeading ground but has been full of problems from day 1.
I can only see more clubs joining forces for survival.
