"Of course as Brentford discovered in the 1930's it would likely have been a dead duck attendance wise."

Brentford were the Away team for the first of two Clapton Orient Home games played at Wembley in 1930. The Daily Mirror reported that: "The Clapton Orient team, who are playing their local Derby with Brentford at Wembley to-morrow, visited the Cup Final pitch yesterday and indulged in practice. The relaying of the 1,000 square yards of turf is proceeding apace, and the pitch will be ready by this, afternoon. A big crowd is expected, for in addition to the intense local interest the Orient's ground troubles have aroused great sympathy from the football public." The attendance was 10,300. A couple of weeks later, Clapton Orient beat Southend United 3:1 in front of "barely 3,000 people" (contemporary reports) although this number is 1,916 in Wikipedia.
