Supporters' Trust News 

Today we welcome Chelmsford City to Champion Hill. The Essex based club currently sit 10th on the table, having taken 5 points from their four league fixtures to date.

Today marks the end of Black History Month. Whilst we have been unable to celebrate this period of the calendar, as we would have liked, it is still important to recognise those individuals from the Black community who have made a great contribution to this football club. Back in 2015, a special Dulwich Hamlet Black History Month Exhibition was launched by our current Manager Gavin Rose and gave a poignant insight to the Club history and its strong links within the black community. Once the clubhouse is able to re-open to supporters’, the exhibition will have a permanent place there and we are pleased to have recently announced that this will now include the contribution already made to the club by our women’s team.

During the summer, the Black Lives Matter movement captured imaginations across the world, and drew attention to inequalities and injustices still suffered by Black communities in America and around the world. The UK has its own legacy of racial discrimination whose effects are still felt by generations of Black people in the present day, and BLM protests were seen on the streets of a number of UK cities, including London. Throughout June and July, the Forward The Hamlet podcast produced a mini-series, Home Disadvantage, and invited players from the men’s and women’s teams to share their thoughts on the Black experiences of life in the UK, encounters with racial profiling and other examples of discrimination, and what we can all do to take part in effecting change.

If you have not listen to the podcasts, I highly recommend that you do. http://www.holdfastnetwork.com/forwardthehamlet

At the recent Women’s team FA Cup fixture, the Mega-container shop finally re-opened and will be open again at tomorrow’s league game against Dartford (14:00 kick off). Tomorrow we are launching our second new t-shirt design of the season, The Ommagio t-shirt. This t-shirt is our take on a classic shirt design seen during the late 80s and early 90s, most notably from our friends in Germany. Priced at £15 it is now available to buy online shop and from the Mega-container alongside our other new, already popular, design The Hamlet t-shirt and sweatshirt

As a reminder for those attending the game tomorrow, due to Covid-19 safety precautions, fans will not be able to enter the shop and will not be able to try on clothing prior to buying. If you cannot make tomorrow’s game, you can shop in the comfort of your home and have lots of merchandise available at our online shop including last season's shirts and discontinued clothing at a reduced price.

We also recently announced that this year’s replica shirts will remain the same as last season priced at £25 (infant), £30 (youth) and £35 (adult). The shirts are on order and due in to be in stock in mid-November, we will keep you updated when they are available to purchase.

Finally, the Football Club and ourselves are always on the look-out volunteers for both the men’s and women’s team home fixtures, from helping with match day operations, to working in the Mega-Container. If you would like to help, do please email us at info@dhst.org.uk.

Enjoy the game, from wherever you are watching!
