    So do some of the observations overheard on the terraces in the 21st Century. "I thought we'd have done a goal by now."

    I heard a young woman say that a couple of seasons ago. To be fair Sven Goren Eriksson had a similar turn of phrase when England manager: "I think we did a good game". Anyone who got hooked on football at that time might have picked it up from there, or just found it funny and made a habit of repeating it. Don't be surprised if you hear me complementing the Hamlets on some first class kicking!

    The 'do a goal, do a goal, do a gooooal'' chant has been around since at least autumn 2015, Whitehawk away in the FA Cup.

    A bit more information here about DHFC attendance figures.
    These go back to when reliable record keeping of attendances started:

    Worth noting that home games in 1991/92 were played at Tooting whilst the current ground was built. I think a few fixtures the season before were played elsewhere but as I arrived in September 1991 I may be wrong there.

    Nice one. An anomaly of this list is that the record smashing attendance for the new ground in October 2014 is not listed - the 2,856* for H&R, as it was "surpassed" at the final home game of the 14/15 season (with a considerable proportion coming from Maidstone).

    * although it may have a been a fair few more, but still within the revised capacity!

    Three matches against Aylesbury United, Wokingham Town and Slough Town were played at Hayes Lane Bromley in 1989/90. All matches in 1991/2 were played at Sandy Lane Tooting, hence our lowest seasonal average on record. The opening match of 1992/3 against St Albans City was played at Hayes Lane Bromley. A match against Grays Athletic in September 1992 was bizarrely played at Nyewood Lane Bognor Regis as it was on the pools coupon so had to be played at 3pm on the Saturday, with that being the only ground we could find with the appropriate grading. All other matches in August and September 1992 were played at Sandy Lane Tooting.

    Yes, that game vs Aylesbury in 1990 is noted as having taken place at Hayes Lane (due to electrical work at Champion Hill). The Hendon match in 1992 is also noted as being the first game back at 'New Champion Hill'. All the odd anomalies are added as notes on every match in the Isthmian Archive which is quite impressive really. I obviously only added notes relevant to the matches that appear on this list.

    Don't be hard on yourself, you were just inside the very edges of what is forgivable. My righteous fury can be a little niche.

    Interesting stats!

    I was sure I remembered going to Bromley and Sandy Lane for home games. Wasn't that Hendon game featured on TV (local news?)

    It was featured on The Big Match on ITV on the Sunday afternoon. "A cracking goal there by Lionel Best" was Ian St John's verdict. (Jinked past two defenders and curled a left foot shot into the far top corner from the edge of the box.) Hendon were the big spenders that season and it was their first league defeat after we came from a goal behind to win 2-1.

    All good stuff, but rather than continally just randomly posting on here, it would be great if you piece your discoveries together for an interesting article for the next edition of Jack McInroy's 'Hamlet Historian'...

    I rather like the continual random articles.

    That's ok...I wouldn't expect you to agree with me... ;)

    Perhaps a bit of both then... but if it's random articles you want how many of dozens of pages of newspaper snipets would you like me to share?

    If it's on topic for the thread, that's what the forums are for. You contribute related stuff and people respond if they're interested, and eventually it forms an interesting and unique archive of sorts that anyone can view.

    Indeed, I like both...which is why I suggested an article in a bit more depth would be even more interesting, with a bit more flesh on the bones, rather than just random.
