Re: Would taking games 'On the Road' boost interest?

I agree that Neath is the permanent home of the Scorpions and should remain so, however, I don't think it did us any harm in playing a couple of games away from Neath last year.
We attracted a number of locals (from Cardiff, Newport and the valleys) who wouldn't normaly travel to Neath. We also attracted a few persons with 'specialist interests' who were getting in a new ground. For the regulars, the general concensus was that it was interesting to have a couple of games on the road. There were a few who were obviously inconvenienced, whether there sacrafice for the additional 'new' supporters we had at the game can be argued either way.
My preference would be to carry on at Neath, but play a couple of home games each season further east, switching the venues each season. That way there is no doubt where out home is, but also gives a chance to raise interest in the locality.
