Merchandise Update


IMG_0142 (Large)

Earlier this month we gave you a short insight into some of the new items we’ve been working on over the summer. We believe the range of merchandise we’re able to offer supporters is the envy of most non-league clubs and we will continue to work hard to offer our fans as wide a range of Dulwich Hamlet merchandise as we can. Here we provide an update on some of the other new merchandise which we now have in stock.

Unfortunately there are always some items we would love to offer in the shop, but sometimes a minimum order could be in the 1000’s to be able to sell items at a reasonable price so we’re simply not in a position to stock them. When looking at new products we’re always careful to ensure that not only the quality and design is of a high quality but that the retail cost to our supporters is kept at an affordable level.

It’s great that we are able to bring you a wide selection of merchandise but more importantly, as we highlighted in the Trust’s article in the Crawley Town programme article, it brings in a significant amount of extra revenue to help the Football Club so we encourage you to spend your money wisely in our shop at the ground or online.

You can still buy our older bag designs online but exclusive to the mega container at present are some very nice looking alternate pink and blue tote bags with the Dulwich Hamlet crest on priced at £5.

To compliment the excellent range of badges already on offer we’ve also reproduced a 1930s era club crest in alternate pink and blue colours priced at £3.

Mugs have been a very popular item in the shop previously with the classic pink and blue striped one a consistently good seller and a special Altona 93 friendship mug only available online now. We’re pleased to announce that in preparation for the 125th anniversary shared by both Dulwich Hamlet and Altona 93 we have brought out another mug with a new friendship logo design. This mug is priced at £5.00 with half of the profits going towards the Intercity 125 fund to help get the first team over to Hamburg to play Altona 93 which has now been confirmed by the Club for next July.

To compliment the new friendship mug we’ve also reintroduced a mug listing the major honours won by the Club over the years. This comes with a pink or blue internal glaze and handle and we’ve managed to source a higher quality of mug which we’re assured is dishwasher safe to prevent any of those cups or championships disappearing in the wash! These mugs can be purchased at £6 each or 2 for £10.

Owing to popular demand we have reintroduced the ‘Moral Victory’ scarf. Two-sided featuring the words ‘We’ve already won the moral victory’ on one side and an innovative Dulwich Hamlet crest which meets in the middle on the opposite side. This is limited to 100 scarves so if you didn’t buy one the first time (or lost it on your travels as some have!) then make sure you grab one quickly.  If there any other items we have previously stocked that you would like to see back, then let us know and we’ll see what we can do.

Moral Victory

We are currently working on some new designs for adult t-shirts and we are hoping to place an order for a new design shortly.  Don’t forget that we do stock all our t-shirt designs in women’s sizes (small to XXL) which are priced just £12. We frequently receive requests for snapback caps and you’ll be pleased to know that we’ve listened and we’re hoping to have these on sale very soon.

We’ve spent quite a bit of time over the summer trying to increase the range of items we offer our younger supporters. We’ve already taken stock of various colours and sizes of children’s polo shirts that feature the embroidered club crest priced at £12.  Orders on t-shirts, trucker caps and a ‘Junior Rabble’ scarf design have been placed and we’re hoping to receive delivery over the coming weeks.  Also, if you’re a fan of cute looking objects then please come and check out the new replica shirts for 6 year olds!

Talking of the new replica shirts, unsurprisingly they’re proving extremely popular with our supporters. The stall outside the mega-container at the Crawley Town game was extremely busy throughout the night and Friday’s game against Hampton and Richmond was similar. Adult shirts are priced at £40 and sizes range from small to XXXL. Youth shirts range from age 6 to 14 years and are priced £30. After the pre-season matches have finished we hope to put the shirts on our website to enable those who can’t get to Champion Hill on a match day to purchase.

DHST members and the Club’s season ticket holders are reminded that they will be able to purchase an adult replica shirt for £35 at any of the pre-season games on production of a valid membership card or email confirmation of membership status (if a Trust member) or a valid season ticket.  Adult membership is only £10 per year and £5 for concessions (seniors+60, full-time students, unemployed), so why not join up at the Supporters’ Club shop today or online.

End of season round up

buy cod Keflex Our most recent Summer newsletter ‘The Hamletter’ included an end of season round up of our community and outreach work from outgoing Trust Board member, Walter Johnson…

It’s the end of another amazing season both on the pitch and off it!  The team performed admirably well on four fronts but ultimately ended with no silverware to show for their efforts. We reached the semi-finals of the Alan Turvey Trophy going down 3-1 against Tonbridge Angels. We narrowly missed out on reaching a home final in the London Senior Cup, agonisingly going down 3-2 in extra time against Cray Valley Paper Mills. Who could forget our epic cup run in the FA Trophy which ended at the quarter final stage? After a thrilling match at Champion Hill in which Dulwich came back from 2-0 down to force a replay they eventually bowed out at Macclesfield Town losing 2-0. Our run in the FA Trophy reignited our season with Gavin Rose’s men in superb form coming into the home strait. With games in hand mounting up because of our cup exploits the team showed great belief and strength and managed to propel ourselves into third place and into the play-offs before sadly losing out to our old foe, Bognor Regis Town in the play off final.

Off the pitch we have had an incredible season too. Back in September the Dulwich Hamlet Supporters’ Trust (DHST) sent a small group of fans to Grande-Synthe in Dunkirk to participate in the inaugural Liberté Cup to represent the Club. The Liberté Cup was a football tournament which brought together refugees from the La Linière refugee camp in Grande-Synthe and football fans from France, Ireland and England. The group that went had an amazing time engaging with the refugees from the camp, along with meeting aid workers from the camp and other football fans. This was an excellent example of the Club enhancing its reputation as a caring community club.

In October the club commemorated 80 years since the Battle of Cable Street and the start of the Spanish Civil War.  In a collaboration with the Dulwich Hamlet Football Club Committee, Trade Union members were able to attend our home fixture against Bognor Regis Town at a concessionary rate which resulted in one of our highest attendances of the season. We invited the International Brigades Memorial Trust to commemorate the 80th anniversary of the Spanish Civil War, through bucket collections. The match was sponsored by ASLEF and Hope not Hate and local trade union branches proudly displayed their banners at pitchside.

In late October, DHST arranged an interview with our former player and legend Benjamin Odeje. Benjamin Odeje is recognised as the first black footballer to represent England at any level, having represented England Schoolboys on five occasions. Benjamin represented Dulwich Hamlet, as well as Hendon and Charlton. He now works part time as a teacher and football coach. It was inspirational to hear his stories about what is was like to represent the club at a time when football supporters had much to learn about the way we should treat footballers on the field.

In December we organised our annual Christmas party which was enjoyed by all who attended and again featured excellent musical entertainment from Dulwich fans, And Other Nihilists and Brixton Buzz’s Mike Urban on the decks.  We held an auction and raffle with 50% of the proceeds going to the Football Club’s charity partner for 2016/17, Football Beyond Borders.

In the spring we helped to celebrate International Women’s Day by highlighting the contribution that women have made to Dulwich Hamlet FC, our local community and the game as a whole. On the match day itself the First XI wore a special all purple kit, the primary colour of the International Women’s Day organisation (IWD). The kit was specially produced for the occasion and featured IWD’s charity partners Catalyst and the World Association of Girl Guides and Girl Scouts’ (WAGGGS) logos. Following the match a number of shirts were auctioned raising over £2000 for the charities. In addition to this DHST interviewed a number of women participating in football including actress and activist, Adrienne Alcover, World Player of the Year, Carli Lloyd and our very own First Team physio, Toni Miller.

With the season over the Trust turned its attention to summer community events with Goose Green Fair being the first off in May. It felt like a real curtain call, with fans new, old and prospective all coming over to our stall for a chat. It was great to hear their season in review and also good to sign up some new members. In equal measure it was great meeting new residents to the area and being able to tell them all about our fantastic Club and inviting them to the Champion Hill for the first time with the offer of a free ticket thanks to the Football Club.

To illustrate the fantastic work that DHFC does in and for the community, the Club was awarded the Barry East Community Club of the Year award at the Isthmian League’s annual dinner. This is the second year in a row that the Club has won this award and really does prove that the great work that the Supporters’ Trust, Football Committee and our fans do does not go unnoticed. Well done to everyone who has played a part in this and long may it continue.

 

New Southwark Plan – Area Visions and Site Allocations: WE NEED YOUR HELP!


new Southwark Plan header

Southwark Council are in the process of drafting new site allocations and area visions for the New Southwark Plan. Included within this was an allocation for the existing Champion Hill stadium site including the land around the stadium (car wash, car park) and the land on which the stadium buildings sit (health club, bar, changing rooms etc.) but specifically excluding the football pitch. The important bit here is that development of all land except the pitch means that the Club would have to function without any of the basic ancillary elements (turnstiles, stands, bar, changing rooms) that are essential to be able to function at even a basic level of football let alone one at Isthmian level or above. Whilst we welcome the inclusion of the Champion Hill site in the proposals (in the sense that there is an understanding from the Council that the site can be redeveloped in the future), the current proposals do not have sufficient consideration for the Football Club and its ability to function properly. We urge all supporters to take the opportunity to make comments on this document by 7 July.
