Remember my dad telling me about the 1950 final at St.Austell Deacs! He was a teenager and went with his dad and a couple uncles. Said he’s never seen a football crowd like it before or after in Cornwall. So  I’m guessing that one will take some beating and is actually the official attendance record mate!?  ☑️
