Over 3,000 fans helped set an attendance record for 2016-17 season in the Ryman Premier when Havant & Waterloovile and Bognor Regis Town faced each other in a crucial game on Easter Monday.

3,455 people turned up to Westleigh Park. In a match that saw the Hawks with a 1-0 win to leapfrog above the Rocks into top spot with just one game to go.

Before that the previous highest attendance was 2,805 that was set between Dulwich Hamlet and Billericay Town at Champion Hill on Saturday 25 March.

The record-breaking gate was only discovered on Tuesday morning. This was after a final tallying up of gates figures and monies by the delighted Hawks. They are now two points clear at the top of the table in their bid for an immediate return to National League South.

The title will be decided on the last day of the season when Havant & Waterlooville travel to Kingstonian with the advantage. While Bognor Regis Town host the Metropolitan Police knowing they must rely on the Hawks to slip up if they are to secure top spot.
