Most of my early visits have either been re-visited regularly or demolished. I'd be in with a shout if Poole ever go back to the Dolphin Stadium (if it still exists?) - went in 1977 while I was on holiday in Bournemouth.

It has been 43 years since I visited Nottingham Forest. Absolutely no plans to revisit.

I was going to say that puts you up there with sandhurstbee on the 43 year mark but its a re visits question so its a pointless post really.

A Dulwich Hamlet fan brought his dad to our last match of the season, at home to Burgess Hill Town. Although not a re-visit, as it was a a different ground, his last time at a Hamlet game, was a pre-season friendly against Blyth Spartans, in August 1972, at the previous Champion Hill stadium!

Re: [sandhurstbee] Longest time between Re Visits [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I attended the Chelsea v Brentford game at Stamford Bridge last Sunday. My only previous visit to the Bridge was on 5/4/1969 when Burnley won 3-2 in Division 1. By my calcalations that is 43 Years 10 Months and 17 Days between visits. Anyone been longer between revisiting a ground?

My last visit to Stamford bridge was to see Chelsea v Brentford Juniors in the (SJFC) 11 Oct 1965 that is 48 years 4 months and 7 days

He's not on this forum but when I took my Dad to Wolves to watch Wimbledon (he's a Dons fan) in 1998, he casually announced that the last time he was at Molineux was in 1950, 48 years back.

Personally, the biggest I could get is if I went back to Peterborough. Haven't been since 15 Feb 1986. After that it'd be Aldershot, Gillingham and Fulham in 1987.

My current longest is Bamford F.C, 13 years ago to see my Dad. I don't think I saw 90 minutes as my Dad was taken off with injured ankle ligaments!

A new personal record set for the longest time between revisits, after last night watching Spurs 3 Nottingham Forest 1.

My previous visit to White Hart Lane (complete with The Shelf and Archibald Leitch grandstand) was on Saturday 2nd April 1988 for Spurs 0 Portsmouth 1. That makes a time between visits of: 26 years, 5 months and 22 days.

I'm another with a long gap between visits to Stamford Bridge.

13 Feb 1982 Chelsea v Liverpool FA Cup
22 Sept 2010 Chelsea v Newcastle League Cup

A mere 28 years 7 months 9 days.

I have just seen your 'golden oldie thread' and it got me thinking. I went to the 1966 cup final at Wembley and did not go back (for football) until last season Trophy final.48 years a ground with the same name but not the same ground.

Re: [ceefaxbrian] Longest time between Re Visits [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I marked another long gap between revisits last Sunday, when I went to watch Portsmouth Ladies 5 Coventry United Ladies 1 at Privett Park, Gosport Borough FC.

I used to be a regular visitor to Privett Park back in the late 1970s/early 1980s, when good behaviour on visits to relatives living nearby would be rewarded with an afternoon watching The Borough (I can just see Splodge's face aghast at such a thought! Tongue), but turns out this was my first return since a Gosport Borough 0 Portsmouth 2 pre-season friendly fixture on 2nd August 1989 - a length of 26 years, 1 month and 4 days. Lots of work has gone in to making the ground fit for Conference football in that time, but it's good to see the old wooden stand and wooden plank bench seating still in place.

I make that around 27 years between visits. Then I dawned upon me where all the years have gone. Doesn't it make you feel old!

Re: [northstandexile] Longest time between Re Visits [In reply to] Can't Post or Reply Privately

I finally got round to sorting my spread-sheet to see what my record might be were I to do re-visits which in general I don't.
Most of my early grounds are long gone or league grounds re-visited for away cup games with the mighty hammers

Haringey 1960/1 is the oldest left followed by Plymouth in 1961/2 and in 1962/3 by Welling Blackpool and Ebbsfleet

Perhaps I should re-visit one of these to set a record of at least 54 years!

andrew c

or maybe leave it another 5 for a 60 year anniversary re-visit to Haringey

I'm sure as soon as someone tries to break The Wall's record, he'll go back to Peterborough to take back his crown, he's keeping that one in reserve having visited there before his 53 year revisit to Wolves. But while I'm here. I'll throw in my International revisit to the Bernabeu on Saturday, 42 years 63 days. That just leaves 2 grounds where I could beat that, Old Trafford and St James Park, all the others were revisited years ago, or no longer exist.

True but then I could trump him by going to Plymouth 2 years after

How many does he have in reserve after Peterborough I wonder?

Good question young Andrew

After Peterborough 3.12.60 as a Schoolboy whilst for the following 18 years I played Saturday Football and subsequently with 3 Kids was unable to pursue my travelling instinct and effectively saw mainly mid-week in the London Area, so many revisits. Next Best

Bristol City 26.02.74
Feyenoord 29.05.74
West Brom 05.09.75
Mansfield 08.03.76
Hereford 10.04.76

4 against Millwall plus Spurs in Rotter, my first Overseas
