Draws & 0-0 draw sequences Can't Post or Reply Privately

Some of you may have noticed that Ebbsfleet United have drawn eight of the nine league games they have played so far this season. I can't recall having come across such a high proportion of draws before at this stage of the season. Anyone know what the record number of drawn games involving one club in any season, at any level (UK or abroad) is?

On Saturday morning, Sky Sports TV mentioned an interesting fact regarding competitive encounters between Reading and Bristol City.
There has not been a goalless draw between these two clubs since 1929, and a total of 81 games with at least one goal have been played between the two (this number is now 82 following Bristol City's 84th minute winner on Saturday) I don't know how frequent 0-0 draws are on average, but 82 games is impressive.

Looking at league matches only, and of tables I've put into the FCHD, the most I can find is 23, all from Football League clubs

1978-79 D1 Norwich City
1986-87 D4 Exeter City
1997-98 D3 both Cardiff City and Hartlepool United

Exeter City also had one draw in the FA Cup, one in the League Cup and 2 in the Associate Members Cup during 86-87.

Cardiff City had 3 FA Cup draws (one of which was settled by penalties), one in the League Cup and 3 more in the FAW Premier Cup in 1997-98

I saw league games involving Norwich 78-8, Exeter 86-7 and Cardiff 1997-8. Only the Aston Villa v. Norwich match finished as a draw. Cardiff won 7-1 but it was against Doncaster who were relegated.
Scunthorpe v. Colchester matches have a recent history of 0-0 draws, including the game I went to at their new ground. The previous season both games were 0-0. I had a quid on the 0-0 so at least I got some money back. I was the only person to beat the bookies at the ground that day!
Liverpool v. Everton and Sampdoria v. Genoa used to traditionally finish 0-0, but this has changed in recent years.
