Programme Notes - Dulwich Hamlet v Slough Town, 19th March 2022

21st Mar 2022

It is now pretty clear that the race to make the play-offs is going down to the wire this season. Including today, we only have four home games left to show our support for the team and to help them get over the line on that final day in May!

With the news dominated by tragic and uncertain events, and with all of our experiences over the past two years still vivid in our minds, it’s rarely been more important to find time to enjoy what we have, and also do what we can to help and support each other. As a Trust, and with the Club, we are looking to do what we can to offer practical help and assistance to the people of Ukraine, and our thoughts are with them at this awful time. More details on this should be out soon, so please keep an eye on Club and Trust communications.

Working with our charity partners and doing work for the community are key elements of the work of the Trust, and we are proud of the money our fans have raised over the years for so many great causes. We are also committed to doing all we can to support the Club as a community hub for our area, and much of our work is geared towards investing in the Club to give the fan base meaningful influence both now and in the years to come. In the next few months we will be refreshing the Trust Board at our AGM, and there are opportunities for fans to stand for election to the Board and get involved in this work. We would encourage all of our fans to think about this, and if you want to learn more about what we do please come and speak to us in the Mega Container, or drop us an email at [email protected].

Merchandise

As always, the Mega Container has been very busy at our last few home games, but fear not we have replenished as much stock as we can with all of your favourite Dulwich Hamlet merch.

We offer a wide range of t-shirts, sweatshirts hoodies and hats for adults, junior and baby rabble fans. Many of you will have seen our new 80s palm tree t-shirt, in homage to promotion roundabout, and we have just extended the Omaggio range to include a stylish grey sweatshirt. We also have a varied range of scarves available to buy including this year's LGBTQ+ scarf which is raising money for Football v Homophobia and a spicy scarf in homage to our brilliant women's team.

We are pleased to also be stocking a book based on club legend Edgar Kail. Written by Dulwich fan Michael Wagg and Phil Earle, Edgar & Adolf is a fictional tale of two real-life footballing heroes Edgar Kail and Adolf Jager and their enduring friendship – pick up a copy at the Mega Container today! Remember, the shop is card-only, and is open before matches, at half-time and also after the final whistle at all home games for the men’s and women’s matches.
