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.
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.
