    Okay. So after tonight's attendance of 912 we have a final midweek league average for the season to compare with previous years (the figure in brackets is the number of home midweek games that season):
    12/13 (4) 560 - ooi 389 excl Maidstone
    13/14 (6) 544
    14/15 (6) 536
    15/16 (6) 663
    16/17 (8) 723

    Our overall home league average for this season now stands at 1267 - 4 ahead of the position after game 21 last year - despite the extra midweek games.

    We are ahead of our Saturday/BH average at this point last season too (1572 vs 1502). I think it will still be tough to beat last season's overall average of 1343, however. We would need an average of 2146 per game (the final two gates last season were 1914 and 2467).

    A saturday game and a Bank Holiday game. I predict we will do it - JUST!

    I have to say it felt as if crowds were bigger this year so surprised we "may" end up with slightly lower attendances - I am hopeful B.I.G is right.

    If we get home advantage in play offs will that count towards our average ?

    Last nights attendance at against Leatherhead at 912 must be one of our highest ever Tuesday attendances (I think* only beaten by Tuesday 26th March 2013 crowd of 1073 vs Maidstone in Ryman South)

    Definitely not!
    Correct, in recent times certainly. Maidstone brought a huge number of supporters down that night. Not many away fans on Tuesday.

    Just checking back it looks like we had 1011 at home to Aldershot on 3/4 1989. I had assumed that was Easter Monday but Easter fell a week earlier that year. I'll do a bit more digging.

    I believe those are the highest midweek league and cup attendances at the current ground. we've had some bigger ones for pre-seasons against Palace and Millwall.

    We didn't play Aldershot in 1989. We played Aldershot Town three times in seasons 1998/9, 1999/2000, 2000/1. I'm sure all three were played on Saturdays. The first one was particularly memorable as we'd led 3-1 until quite late in the game, then collapsed as the Shots scored twice to equalise; then Hamlet snatched the winner deep into stoppage time to win 4-3. We'd also won 4-3 at home to Heybridge Swifts the previous Saturday, having been 2-3 down going into stoppage time. That remains the only game I've ever seen where both keepers went up for a corner.

    Will never forget that Aldershot game! At 3-1 up the Aldershot keeper saved Peter Garland's penalty and when they pulled it back to 3-3 it was deep disappointed time and then Byron Harper headed our late winner and Burty rode Tony Chin back to the halfway line!

    Ah thanks. Thought it was a bit unlikely. Got my 8s and 9s in a twist, hence the 'more digging' required.

    This site is good but requires a lot of squinting across spreadsheets and cross-referencing - clearly too ambitious at 7.30am:

    Surely, last nights London Senior Cup quarter final attendance of 583 at Champion hill last night (6th April 2017) was one of the largest recorded ? in recent times

    Noting that 2013/14 London Senior Cup final final between Tooting & M and AFC Wimbledon secured just 510 and 2012/13 final 469 and 2011/12 344

    That also depends on what you call 'recent times'?

    Never mind the crowd...what about the magnificent result! That's all I'm bothered about!

    Unsurprisingly the London FA suits did get a bit nervous when T:confused::confused:ting pulled that goal back. Should we reach the final, the one downer is yours truly stuck in the turnstiles!!!

    True of course but, at the risk of stating the bleedin obvious, the title of this thread is "Attendances..." - so surely reasonable to mention last night's here? There are other threads for the infinitely more important result itself.

    It was Dave Stevens whose penalty was saved. Pete was the regular penalty taker, but Stevo was on a hat-trick, grabbed the ball from him, then screwed up! Pete was later substituted to a massive ovation while we were still 3-1 up having been the best player on the pitch.

    Attendance: 1,806. V Lowestoft Town today

    need to be around 2,800 mark for final game at Champion Hill to match last years attendance

    (because of increase in mid week games - due to cup commitments)

    As mentioned above, our final midweek home league average is up on last season: 723 vs 663.

    Our Saturday/BH average is also up on what it was with a game to go last season: 1563 vs 1528.

    We now have an overall average this season of 1291 compared to 1292 after 22 league games last year.

    An attendance of just 1129 (not likely I hope) against Grays would give us a higher Sat/BH average than last year (1584 vs 1583) but our overall average would then be 1284 - down 4.4% on last year.

    2486 against Grays would give us the same whole person average (1343) as last year but would mean that, overall, one more person had come through the gate at league games compared to last season (30894).

    and up on Tuesdays

    where has the "potential" slight dip in attendances occurred ?

    I think you have FAR too much time on our hands... but thank you for the comparisons, much appreciated.

    The Kingstonian and Havant & Waterlooville matches being played midweek have knocked a couple of thousand of the annual attendance figure alone.

    This is true. Took a while to input the data originally but once that's done updating is a doddle. I usually do it when the figure comes through towards the end of a game. About five seconds to do that and then ten minutes of piss taking to endure.

    Have you also recorded the weather on each day? Would be revealing to know to what extent temperature, rainfall, wind direction, pollen count, shape of the third largest cloud in the sky etc impact on attendance figures....

    One for the summer break perhaps.

    you joke
    I read in the 90s a great article about songs sung at Maine Road
    and how certain songs were sung at certain times and often followed a pattern, like after a goal or towards the end of a game or at away games

    but for time being stick with attendances
