Drum roll please…

Congratulations go to… Colchester United, who have
triumphed in the ‘Real Football Roar’ award – The Football League’s
initiative that measured crowd noise levels at each of its 72 clubs
during the first month of the new season.

The U’s
supporters held off stiff competition from Norwich City and Carlisle
United, to register the loudest crowd ‘roar’ of all 72 clubs in The
League, with a recording of 128.3 decibels taken as the players took to
the pitch for the recent Coca-Cola Championship fixture with Derby
County at Layer Road. Most impressive.

United manager, Geraint Williams, said: ‘The players always appreciate it when the fans open their lungs to
back the team and it’s great that they’ve proved they are the noisiest
around. We know how fervent the fans are and the noise they made
against Derby County certainly helped us on our way to our first win of
the season.’

The top 10 loudest teams:

1 Colchester United
2 Norwich City
3 Carlisle United
4 Crewe Alexandra
5 Bristol Rovers
6 Southend United
7 Rochdale
8 Southampton
9 Stockport County
10 Plymouth Argyle

As PR gimmicks go, that’s actually quite interesting.
