Apologies for repeating this bit, but the list isn't comprehensive, so if anyone wishes to add to it, please do. Some obvious omissions will be some of the county cup finals in the early 80's. I know it was common to play them on May Day, but I haven't included them when I haven't been able to confirm the date. So you might see a number of the defeats, but very few victories.

In the early 80s, up to and including 1984, SSC finals were played on Saturdays, with the 1985 final being the first to be played on May Day bank holiday Monday, the 2-2 draw v Lewes. The 1997 Tooting game was an away game at Sandy Lane (the only time I visited there) rather than at home. A pity that now we are in May, we are gradually coming towards the end of this daily thread, which I have been looking forward to each day. It’s been very enjoyable and has certainly brought back some memories. Thanks again Andrew.
You're right, Rob, it is the wrong way round. If only I could say it was a deliberate mistake. I've corrected it now, thanks.
We had a good record at Sandy Lane, losing just 2 of 12 matches against Tooting and winning 5. We've lost on both of our vists to Imperial Fields.
