Prestatyn led the way with 762 for the local derby with Rhyl, but the Bastion Road crowd was well down on the 1,280 who watched the equivalent fixture which was postponed from New Year's Day to Easter Monday 2009.
Some 678 spectators clicked through the Farrar Road turnstiles for Sunday's visit of Gwynedd rivals Porthmadog, but was again a big drop on the 1,027 who watched City's derby at Caernarfon last season.
In total, the seven fixtures attracted 3,576 fans against the 6,415 who watched the nine Christmas games a year ago.
Carmarthen's Richmond Park attracted 580 for the visit of Llanelli, while Park Avenue had a crowd of only 402 for the clash between Aberystwyth Town and Haverfordwest.
But Port Talbot Town were delighted with a turnout of 685 for the local derby with Neath on Sunday, which was also televised live by S4C.
