The largest crowd ever at a cornish football game?????

Recommended Posts

In 1949 Penzance played in the Senior Cup final in front of 15,000.

In 1959 the crowd was down to just over 4,000

The 1970-71Combination League Cup final between St Just and Illogan RBL held at Penzance had a record crowd of over 1000, double the previous record and the gate receipts were £120. This crowd figure was broken again at the 1973-74 final when the same 2 teams played once again at Penzance in front of 1500 people.

Bodmin played Falmouth at Priory Park in 1972(I think!) on a hot sunday afternoon in a crowd which was in excess of 3000 and the game was an absolute cracker 4-4. Also at Priory in 1993 approx 4000 watched a pre-season friendly with then Premiership Sheffield Wednesday, (Chris Waddle, Nigel Worthington, John Sheridan, Nigel Pearson etc.), the result not so close 2-9
