    855 - ave 2018/19 league gate at Imperial Fields.
    2951 - ave 2018/19 league gate at Champion Hill.

    Not at all interested myself (oh no) but the average league attendance so far, as of 29/12 (1204), takes us past that of BTFC. Only Torquay and Woking above us now in the NLS turnstile league.

    Here’s one for a quiet Sunday evening then... How far would you have to go back for the last time we had a total of 5,902 or more spectators in the ground in the space of 72 hours?

    Impossible to say with any accuracy because Isthmian League attendance records weren’t kept systematically until the 88/89 season. Lots of info and spreadsheets galore here scousedom: The Official Isthmian League Historical Website - Your one stop resource

    On the balance of probabilities 3/9/1938 vs St Albans (att: 6000) and 7/9/1938 vs Clapton (att: info unavailable) look likely candidates - albeit with a further 24 hours pause compared with 26-29/12/2018.

    Incidentally, John Lawrence’s programme notes from yesterday (29/12) reported the sad news that Mike Wilson, ‘the long-serving and much-respected statistician of the Bostik (Isthmian) League’ had died earlier in December. He had been recording attendance figures for over thirty years.

    Mike was a top bloke, when he was an Isthmian League official he was more of a scuffy bloke in a tie, rather than an official in a blazer, if you get my drift. A top bloke, who always had time for a chat...top bloke for whom the description of 'diamond geezer' certainly fits.

    And a "diamond geezer". Don't forget that!

    Repeated...simply the perils of typing quickly without paying too much attention in a tea break...

    You're a top bloke for pointing it out, top bloke! ;)

    At least he didn't slip into what could be termed Commentatorese

    In the old days players were known as either journeyman, average, good, very good or world class. But in this Sky/BT driven world we have a few more descriptive terms, journeyman, average, good, very good, top, world class and top top.

    I blame Redknapp

    Surely in the 40's and 50s we were still getting 5,000 at home games
    thought decline only started with TV coverage

    Quite probably. There’s just hardly any data from which to make a judgement and zero data points I’ve noticed within a few days of each other.

    Sure some of the pre War handbooks had crowd statistics, have one among the detritus at home from 1939/40 that sure mentioned a gate of 5k for a RESERVE game against Nunhead. Will have to check & update.

    1381 over the season as a whole

    Thank you very much. We are likely to break that this year :)

    It was, despite playing our last five home games at T&M, our highest average for quite a while (60+ years has been suggested).
    We had an average of 1317 in 16/17 and 1343 in 15/16.

    Is it 10 games we have played at home this year in the league at Tooting? I think it is. Not bad if we beat the average again then :)

    Cyclodunc Where's the slam tent, mate?

    yep, 10 plus one FA Cup (Tonbridge Angels) and one FA Trophy replay (Welling)

    Yes 10 in the league at Tooting and only 21 in total this season instead of the 23 we have had since we were promoted to the Isthmian Premier.

    Mildly interesting fact. The aggregate of our last league match at T&M and our first three at Champion Hill (10,447) is higher than the aggregate for our whole championship winning 2012/13 season (10,306 over 21 games).

    That's very cool! (That was my second season coming to Dulwich, I used to bring the wee boy because he could hang out and play with his cars on the terrace. Not much chance of that now :D )

    Contemporary reports from the 1890s through to the early 20th century often needs a surprising amount of thought to ‘translate’ into modern parlance...
