So that was the season…a review in numbers

1. In games where Lewes have scored first, we have taken 25 points this season. Unfortunately, where we have conceded first we have only managed 5 points. In the games where we have scored first there has been a 35% chance that we would go onto win. Where the opposition scored first, there has been a 76% chance we would go onto lose.

2. If we finished our games at the end of the 75th minute, we would have gained 12 more points than we finished the league on.

3. On 10 occasions this season, we have conceded two goals within a five-minute spell. If we could have prevented that second goal in those 10 occasions we would have been 13 points better off.

4. We’ve racked up 49 yellow cards in all competitions this season, with Lloyd Cotton the most cautioned player on 8 yellow cards (for Lewes). We’ve had five red cards this season, two of which (Will Godmon’s v Farnborough and Lloyd Cotton’s v VCD Athletic) were later rescinded. Last season we managed 101 yellow cards and a whopping 13 reds.

5. Champions Hampton & Richmond Borough’s heaviest defeat this season came at home to us back in September. That game also reflected the only time this season where we have scored four goals in a league game. Where we’ve scored three or more in the Ryman League Premier Division this season, we went onto win on 75% of occasions.

6. Jonté Smith finished the season as the leading goal scorer, with 10 goals but his striking partner Alex Laing has actually provided more assists than anyone else with 11 in all competitions.

7. We are at our deadliest in the last quarter of games, scoring 17 goals from the 67th minute onwards. Conversely, we are more likely to concede in that quarter too, with 32 goals scored against us in that period, 13 of which have been in the last five minutes of league games.

8. Our midweek record has been significantly better than our Saturday record, taking 13 points from 15 midweek games (average points per game of 0.86pts) as opposed to 21 points from 31 games played on a Saturday (0.68pts per game).

9. Our average midweek home attendance this season has been 413, which includes a season-best crowd of 568 on Bank Holiday Monday against Bognor Regis Town. Excluding that game it was 408. Our average home Saturday attendance has been 426, whilst on the three occasions where we have clashed with Brighton & Hove Albion that number has dropped to an average of 403.

10. We used 54 players this season in the First Team squad, with Leon Redwood having made the most appearances (48), followed by Henry Muggeridge (47). We have taken 25 points this season where the back five of Winterton-Brinkhurst-Redwood-Freeman-Malins have started (20 games in total).
