I wonder if the HCC had more spectators in those days. Sounds like a cracker!

Don't have an attendance for this game in my records. But the first round against Letchworth at Top Field pulled in a crowd of 365. So think the answer is yes......
Plan for the worst, hope for the best......but always plan for the worst
