The lowest attendance for a Saturday afternoon Football League match is believed to be the 469 who attended the Division 3 (South) match between Thames and Luton Town played on 6th December 1930. Thames won 1-0 in a match played at the 100,000+ capacity West Ham Stadium, a venue which was also used for greyhound and speedway racing.

Watford reached the last 16 of the FA Cup for the first time and their 5th Round tie at Birmingham saw them play in front of the biggest crowd that had ever seen Watford play up to then - 49,757. Just two days later they were back in League action away to Thames at the West Ham Stadium (see above). The crowd (if that's what it could be called!) - 853.

Clapton Orient played two of their home League matches at Wembley Stadium.
