A very Happy New Year from The Hamlet! 

After the festive fixtures our teams have a jam-packed January ahead of them, to propel us into the year.  Throughout the month there are a whopping fourteen games for you to enjoy, home and away. 

For the Men’s side it’s a particularly busy time, with three home matches and three away.  At Champion Hill we’ll host Hashtag United on Saturday 6th; then Haringey Borough on Saturday 27th, and Wingate & Finchley under the lights on Tuesday 30th.  On the road the Men travel to Chatham Town on New Year’s Day; to Hastings United on Saturday 13th; and to Potters Bar Town on Saturday 20th.   

For the Women’s First XI, pushing hard to reach the top of the table, still competing in three cup competitions and scoring goals galore, there are home games against Ashford United on Sunday 7th in the League Cup; and against high-flying Dartford on Sunday 14th – a real crunch clash in the league.  The Women travel to take on Tottenham Hotspur Academy in the Capital Women’s Cup on Sunday 21st and to Ebbsfleet United on Sunday 28th. 

If that wasn’t enough, our own high-flying Women’s Reserves are looking to stay top of the pile with home games against Actonians and Ashmount Leigh this month; plus a trip to face Fulham in the League Cup and, to complete the fourteen fixtures, to Denham United in the league.  To keep up to date with all the fixture news head to pitchero.com/clubs/dulwichhamlet or our social media channels.  

It all adds up to plenty of opportunities to get down to Champion Hill and enjoy what’s on offer, on and off the pitch.  Whether you’re never been before or just dipped in, why not make it a resolution to come along and support your local teams.   

Off the pitch we’re proud of the work the club and its supporters do within our community, including recently collecting winter coats in partnership with Wrap Up London, and supporting the King’s College Hospital Charity and The Albrighton Centre through the Club’s Christmas Appeal.  We were also proud to continue to be part of the Rainbow Laces campaign last month, having been the first non-league club to sign up for it nine years ago.  

There’s always a warm welcome at Champion Hill, great bars indoor and out, and the Supporters’ Trust is on hand on match days to answer any questions you have.  You’ll find us in the pink ‘n’ blue Mega Container or Shed behind the goal near the main turnstiles.  And if you’re not already a member, why not make another resolution to join the Supporters’ Trust.   

The Trust is the voice of our fans and works to secure our long-term future at the heart of East Dulwich.  To find out more visit dhst.org.uk or come and have a chat.   

Forward The Hamlet!
