Anything for you mon frere. I’ve done a few extra than you asked for in an attempt to make up for my indolence...
Excellent. Targets set for tonight thenAnything for you mon frere. I’ve done a few extra than you asked for in an attempt to make up for my indolence...
First home Tuesday league game crowds from recent seasons:
727 vs East Thurrock Utd 8/8/18 (at Imperial Fields)
659 vs Hendon 12/9/17
843 vs Enfield Town 16/8/16
625 vs Leatherhead 8/9/15
513 vs Peacehaven & Telscombe 19/8/14
479 vs Cray Wanderers 20/8/13
330 vs Hythe Town 30/10/12
In 2012/13 our Tues average was higher than for Sat/BH largely due to a crowd of 1073 vs Maidstone. That was not bettered midweek until 2017/18 when we had 1199 on 14/11/17. That’s our best Tuesday crowd since accurate records were kept.
It's actually 1,866 v Tooting & Mitcham United, Bank Holiday Monday 28 AugustAugust "new ground" record home attendance remains 1,688
Dulwich Hamlet v Billericay Town - 1,688 (19th August 2017)
In the last three seasons we have had one home AND one away game before being knocked out. In 2016/17 we lost at home. You have to go back to 2015/16 when we had no home games, two away before being knocked out. And the year before that we lost at home to lower division Worthing...That FA Cup attendance 1,689 against Bognor Regis on Saturday 21 September must have been one of biggest in modern times given we always seem to have been drawn away in recent years ?
Probably our biggest home FA Cup gate since Southport in The First Round Proper!That FA Cup attendance 1,689 against Bognor Regis on Saturday 21 September must have been one of biggest in modern times given we always seem to have been drawn away in recent years ?
The actual Southport crowd was higher than that... the then owners allegedly knocked several hundred off the gate...Quite possibly more spectators than we had v Southport tbh.
The turnstile counters were bust back then and we had no idea of exactly how many people were in the ground on the day. I was locked away in the club offices during the match, with two others, counting the gate receipts. (They had to be declared to the FA before the final whistle for some reason.)
Two of us stuck our heads out of the bar, guessed a rough crowd figure of 1,800 and then worked out a way of divvying up the receipts to an attendance of 1,835. Hey presto, that was the official attendance.
The declared gate v Southport was roughly right but a margin of error +/- 147 is quite plausible.
It made me smile for years whenever I saw that 1,835 figure cited as the record gate at the current stadium.
I've always seen our record quoted as the record attendance for an Amateur league match .I believe there were bigger attendances for professional non-league matches, i.e. Southern League, which included the likes of Ipswich, Norwich and Peterborough in their non-league days.
Never seen anyone dispute Dulwich Hamlet record non-league attendance
