Seb Lewis attended 1,076 Charlton Athletic games in a row

On March 9th, 2020, Seb Lewis wrote about his health fears on Twitter. He said:

The thought of my long run of 22 years of consecutive competitive Charlton games (1,076 in a row) could well be lying in the hands of the government (whether it’s now, in a few weeks or months) is not the most comfortable feeling at all.
