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.

Lee Bowyer leads the tributes

Charlton manager Lee Bowyer has released a message after the passing of Seb Lewis:

The thoughts of everyone at the club are with Seb’s family at this very difficult time. Thank you Seb for your loyalty and dedication to Charlton. The Valley and every away end up and down the country, will never be the same without you. RIP Seb.

He will be missed, he was the most loyal fan that we had in my time especially and to do what he’s done for this club and travel and be there no matter what the weather, where it was – it’s going to be a big miss for us in the terraces.

My heart goes out to his family and friends and we’re going to miss him dearly.
