    20 years ago. How crowds have changed !!

    4 Not allowed!
    20 years ago this November 5th.
    For all the dross we saw at Gillingham this is the game that sticks out for me now we are up with the big boys
    I use it as my reality check for The Albion

    This is nicked from Wearebrighton website

    Nothing illustrates that better than the fact that Barnet were the side against whom the Albion had their lowest ever gate for a home league game. November 5th 1997 was the day when only 1,025 people treked on a Wednesday night to Priestfield to watch two very poor fourth tier teams do battle.

    Even that crowd figure appeared to be massaged - ask anyone in attendance and they will tell you there were no more than 900 people there. Which was just as well as Steve Gritt's side were hammered 3-0. Still, at least those on the Rainham End terrace got to see some nice fireworks going off at the opposite end of the ground as Gillingham celebrated Bonfire Night.
