Big crowds down the Valley

Post  allotmentender on Wed May 30, 2012 1:20 pm

The thread about the charity game has got me thinking, what's the biggest crowds i've known at the Valley?

Merthyr in the FA Cup springs to mind straight away, also a pre season friendly against the Villa (who had Les Sealey RIP) who brought a big following, friendly against Man Ure, Bromsgrove the year we won the league!!!

Trying to think of others!!!

Kettering in the FA Cup was the biggest attendance I have seen. It was also a pure nightmare full stop getting in, eating drinks, food etc!

The biggest I can think of was the final of the Birmingham Senior Cup against the Blues. I think the attendance was over 2000, although I can't find any record of it.

Here is a decent picture of the Cedar Road with a good turnout.

It was the day we could have won the league, but Gloucester won 1-0, which took it to the last day. The attendance at the Valley was 1088.

I am sure the MT crowd was over 2000?
I remember Smithy running on the pitch and no-one followed him?

What ever happened to Smithy?
