Programme Notes - Dulwich Hamlet v Tonbridge Angels – Monday 18th April

21st Apr 2022

Happy Easter from everyone here at the Supporters’ Trust!

In the part of the year where we celebrate a rather unexpected comeback, this match, and the final push for the play offs, might come at just the right time. It may feel odd to be playing on a Monday afternoon, but what a way to cap off the bank holiday weekend in style – and hopefully victory too.

As ever, your support has been magnificent this year, and with this being our penultimate home game of the season let’s give the boys everything we can do try and get them over the line.

If you aren’t too full of hot cross buns and chocolate, take a bit of time to sample the many delightful fantastic food and drink options available around the ground. It is also the season of renewals, and in that spirit you may wish to reinvent your look with a full range of clothes and accessories that we handily have on sale at the Mega Container today.

Even though we only have a handful of games left we remain committed to doing what we can for the community here at Champion Hill. At our last game of the season we look forward to welcoming representatives of the many charities we have managed to support this year, and we are delighted they will all be able to join us to send the team off in style.

It remains an important time off the pitch as well, with Trust Board elections coming up soon. See below for more details, but please do consider putting your name forward to help out.

Enjoy the match!

Board Election

The Supporters’ Trust represents members and fans, and works with the club to support our long-term aims and ambitions for Dulwich Hamlet. This June we will be holding our AGM, and at that time new members will be elected to the Trust Board to support this ongoing work.

The Board needs people with a range of skills and backgrounds who support the aims

of the Trust, and it is varied and rewarding – as well as vital to the health of our relationship with the club. This year we have a few slots open for people to stand for, and if you are considering whether or not this might be for you then please do drop us a line at [email protected] or speak to a Board member on a match day – you can usually find one of us in the Mega Container.

Further details about the AGM and the Board elections will be with members very soon, but please do consider helping out if you can!

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.

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.

100 Club

The 100 club offers you a chance to help the club AND win cash prizes – what’s not to like? If you enter you are in with a chance to win a prize every single month, and all proceeds go directly into supporting our club.

We have now raised over £50,000 via the 100 Club, and recent prizes have reached nearly £200 for our lucky winner. You can get your tickets at dhst.org.uk/100-club/ or head to the Mega Container where you can pick up membership forms to sign up every month!
