Today in numbers

11 months ago By Paul Mullins

Just a few statistics on today's game versus Lincoln United.

1 - it was Will Whieldon's first goal for the club.

2 - only Curtis Pond and Grant Ryan had ever started a competitive game for us before.

5 - only 5 players, Pond, Ryan, Josh Sedgley, Will Whieldon and Chad Degville had a previous appearance for us before.

9 - players played their first competitive football for Chasetown. Callum Lovatt, Jordan Flattley, Spencer Gunnell, Jimmy O'Neill, Chris Baker, George Cater, Jake Lovatt, Frankie Baigent and Muzzy Nduna.

10 - players made their first league appearance for Chasetown. The 9 listed above plus Josh Sedgley.

57 - Grant Ryan's appearances before today. The most of anyone in today's starting line up.

116 - The total number of Chasetown games between the 14 players that were used today (and 111 of those were Pond and Ryan!)

159 - today's opening home attendance, seven fewer than last season's 166.

Deja-vu - last season's opening day defeat was 1-3 to Shaw Lane. On that occasion, as today, our only goal came from a midfielder from a free-kick. Last season, Jack Langston.
