    Our final 2016/17 average home league attendance is 1317 - down from 1343 last season (-1.98%)


    The midweek average is up: 723 vs 663
    The Sat/BH average is up: 1587 vs 1583

    We just played more midweek home league games: 8 vs 6 last year (due entirely to our FA Trophy run).

    I am assuming he slashed his wrsits last night, after the official attendance drop was confirmed...

    Looks right - we are a similar size club to Wealdstone I would say - and they are some of our only friends too :)

    There's not a massive difference between the two leagues really

    Hmm. There's a bit of a discrepancy here. Football Web Pages now has the H&W vs Bognor gate on Monday as 3455 (confirmed on their website). It was reported on the day (and appears on other websites) as 2307. Assuming the higher figure (a new club record) is correct it takes their season average to 763 - above our midweek average of 723.

    It also means that, for the first time since Maidstone left the Ryman Premier, we don't have the highest gate of the season.

    The new one is the right one I believe.

    They were saying on the Bognor site that the 2307 figure was a joke.

    3 days to work out the attendace! Once all the monies had been counted! It stinks, they got found out and were given a chance to own up!

    I think it, somehow, might have been a lot bigger than our capacity right up until the Sixties, at a guess.

    I'd like to think that error would have been uncovered if it was a cup or play off game but somehow doubt it. When the turnstiles are clicking over I still don't understand how you can get the number so wrong and what it has to do with the money taken.

    Surely the money is balanced to the numbers being shown as coming in not the other way round.

    Picture used for that article is clearly not from Monday as Bognor played in a claret kit and H&W in all white. Wonder if, due to the crowd size and to avoid congestion, H&W might have opened up a side gate and just took cash off fans?

    Their attendance for the Dulwich match was wrong too, there was at least one extra person in n the ground.

    Wink wink.

    That could be an option, kick off was delayed due to trying to get everyone in.

    From a health and safety aspect I find it a bit worrying that they could let an extra 50% of a crowd of 2,300 into a ground that size without realising until afterwards.

    Dulwich Hamlet V Enfield Town (Ryman Premier play off semi final)
    Thursday 27th April 2017
    Attendance 2,517

    Largest mid week Dulwich Hamlet attendance in the new stadium (and probably since the 1950's ?)

    According to da forums. Its a rule to declare the attendance before a certain time. They guessed to meet the rule and then changed it when totalled correctly.

    It certainly used to be the case the gate had to be reported with the final score so the reasons given above are plausible.

    Memories of making up / guesstimating our then record crowd v Southport as we had to declare the gate on the match info sheet faxed to the FA and Press Association, from memory, within something like 15 mins of the final whistle.

    Now we see large crowds on a regular basis its hard to believe just 1,835 for Southport - I remember struggling to see the game 2 or 3 deep all around the ground

    For the record, still believe our record attendance to watch a game involving Dulwich Hamlet was when

    FA Cup Amateur Final 1937
    Saturday 16th April 1932
    at West Ham's Boleyn Ground (Upton Park)
    Dulwich Hamlet (2) V Leyton (0)

    attendance 33,000

    second highest

    Dulwich Hamlet beat Kingstonians 1-0 in the F.A. Amateur Cup semi-final, at Selhurst Park,
    Saturday 5th March 1932
    Attendance on that day 27,840

    FA Amateur Cup semi final at Stamford bridge
    Saturday 10 March 1956
    Dulwich Hamlet V Corinthian Casuals (lost 3-1)
    attendance 27,000

    But what was the record attendance for a Dulwich Hamlet game at the old Champion Hill stadium ??

    If the actual crowd for the Southport game was 1835 then I'm wearing clogs and living in a windmill in old Amsterdam

    For a Hamlet game almost certainly the opening game against Nunhead.

    Certainly had a bigger midweek crowd against Chelsea for the floodlight opening in 1964.
