Irrespective of the crowd, the actual tournament, Accies spresence in it and the performance merits formal coverage. Hopefully they will pick up the story and run with it in the next round. BT have the tv rights and did cover some first leg games but only those involving big english clubs afternoon kick offs.
Hardly surprising when the Accies 'Official' web-site STILL has nothing about the game/result, othet than twitter feeds from those who were there. Don't we continue to miss a trick when presented with a great opportunity for publicity??
The UEFA comments were ' L'entrée est gratuite pour le match d'UEFA Youth League de ce soir à Hamilton et les supporters ont répondu présent. La tribune qui est ouverte est pleine. Admission is free for tonight's UEFA Youth League match in Hamilton and supporters have responded. The grandstand that is open is full'
Looked pretty full, from what I saw, and the Directors decision to allow all in for free, was the correct one, with a bumper crowd of youngsters as well. We can only hope that some of them will want to come back to another home game on a regular basis, but the first team have to produce the performances and results, to keep them as Accies supporters, before many are sucked into the 'old firm' mentality.
Another 'free' night for the next match in a month's time is essential to encourage new supporters.
