    You said probably the biggest home midweek since the Fifties...you then quote a bigger one from the Sixties...and a much larger one from the forties! As long as you're happy, and all that, but...GOOD GRIEF! :facepalm:

    I was really only referring to mid week league/cup games - not friendlies
    and primarily to the new stadium

    4 gates over 2000 is surely a first at the new ground?

    And the biggest of the season in the FA Trophy too.

    Just for the hell of it our 24 'Ryman League' games had an average attendance of 1367 (vs 1343 in 23 last year).
    Our midweek average bumped up to 922.
    (I won't be using those figures for comparisons in the future ;))

    That's really helpful -

    16,254 for Dulwich Hamlet V Nunhead on 10th October 1931 would be a record attendance for League/Cup game at Champion Hill involving Dulwich Hamlet

    especially, if the old Champion Hill record attendance was 20,744 for Kingstonians V Stockton in the FA Cup final held on 8th April 1933

    The highest for a Dulwich Hamlet friendly at Champion Hill would (almost certainly be) 18,000 for Hamlet V Nigeria

    The attendance record is almost certainly for the first game. The gate quoted was the paying gate, as I understand. On top of that would have been complimentary tickets, official guests AND season ticket holders. And has always been widely accepted, anecdotally down the years, as our record gate.

    Anyone who's known you for as long as I have would find that quite plausible.

    Sorry PartisanDulwich just catching up. The answer is 4 more this season - 8 midweek league games in total. We seem to have 4 home midweek games set at the start of the season. The final number played is, of course, invariably higher.

    For the previous three seasons in the Ryman Premier we had 6 home midweek league games. The last time we had 4 midweek league games at home was when we were in Ryman South when there were 2 fewer home league games anyway.
