Local teams supported

I find it fascinating since I've lived up here to see what local support is. Most of it I've seen walking round the area in my day to day life.
The most unusual one ( which I never expected ) is the sheer amount of support ( car stickers, football shirts ) in Ossy of Burnley FC.
Going west to literally the West End it doesn't diminish, rather become stronger in what I reasonably expected to be Rovers turf !
I've no opinion just an observation. Logically I would expect west of Accy to be a Rovers stronghold generally.
I would say , taking out sufferers like me from Bowton lol, and the odd LFC /MUFC car banner/ shirt wearer, that from what I see ( consistently ) that it's 90% Burnley. 10% Accy Stanley/MUFC/LFC ( & yours truly ).
Would love to see some comments following this to see why this is.

Re: Local teams supported

Might have changed since I lived up there, but I always found Ossy/Church to be a mixed Burnley/Rovers area. Same went for going out eastwards in the Huncoat area. The saddest thing from my point of view is the lack of support for Stanley, including in Accy itself. It shows a lack of local pride which doesn't reflect well on the area.

Yeah, but they do now, as you and I know only too well. And the fact that so few people in the area support them, a Football League club that were on the brink of promotion this season, is disgraceful. It shows a real lack of local loyalty.

Re: Local teams supported

True Wynonie, if we'd got to Wembley I'm sure all of a sudden there'd have been more 'loyal locals' wanting tickets than we'd have been able to cope with but as we know most of them wouldn't have been seen for dust come the start of the season even if we'd been promoted, just the same as all those extra hundreds who came to Wycombe, not that they weren't welcome - it was brilliant to have such an away following but it's sad & such a shame that most probably won't be at the Crown come August
