Making football club cater for crowds it won't get

SIR - I was appalled to read of the Football's Association decision to make the local football club install 100 seats and cover for another 100 (WHT, February 11).
Unfortunately this kind of decision is happening to loads of smaller clubs up and down the country.
My biggest complaint against the Football Association is that unless these smaller clubs get a good run in the FA Cup or the FA Vase these facilities will hardly ever get used.
In Welwyn Garden City's case their average home gate for the season is probably no more than 50 or 60.
You may also want to watch:
The overall average crowd for the premier league of the South Midlands for a whole season is no more than 100.
Also the local council could help there local team by giving them permission as soon as possible to upgrade facilities instead of waiting till March 20, this giving them more time to do the necessary work instead of 11 days.
