Hinckley’s 2023/24 in numbers

With 48 games, 33 wins, more than 150 goals and a league title, this is Hinckley’s 2023/24 in numbers.

68.8% – in total, those 48 games saw 33 wins, eight draws and seven defeats. That’s a win rate of 68.8%.

152 – the number of goals scored was the same number as last season, in five fewer games. Scoring 152 goals in those 48 games means we have now scored more than 120 goals in all competitions in seven of our eight completed full seasons.

58 – the number of goals conceded is the joint-fewest in all competitions in a season, alongside 2021/22.

27 – In total, 27 different players found the back of the net this season. Johnny Johnston scored the first goal, inside a minute of the opening game against Droitwich Spa. Riley Davoile bagged the 152nd against Bilston Town.

22 – Brady Middleton and Lewis Rankin ended the season as joint-top scorers, level on 22 goals apiece. Five players reached double figures for goals (Tom Weale, Jack Edwards and Matt Dawson being the others).

45 – Matt Dawson, Danny Fraser and Lewis Rankin made the most appearances for us this season, each featuring in 45 out of the 48 games.

419 – We twice beat our record attendance for a regular league match this season. The 390-strong crowd that watched the win over Coventry Copsewood topped the previous best of 384 against Bromsgrove Sporting in 2017. That was then beaten by the 419 who watched our win over Bilston Town in our final home match.

238 – The average league attendance of 238 is the highest in our 10 years. 14 of the 19 home league games were watched by more than 200 people.

2018 – A potential League and Cup double wasn’t to be, but the loss to Highgate United is the first time Hinckley have been knocked out of the League Cup since 2018. AFC were still in the competition when lockdown struck in 2020, and the competition didn’t return until last season, when we lifted the trophy.

1 – And most importantly, the number one – the first Hinckley team to finish top of the table since 2001, when United won the Southern League Midlands Division.

Now we turn our attention to 2024/25, our first campaign at step five.
