DULWICH HAMLET CLUB STATEMENT:
“Dulwich Hamlet Football Club and Dulwich Hamlet Supporters’ Trust are pleased to announce a hat trick of games to celebrate our return to Champion Hill, with the first home league game confirmed as our Boxing Day fixture against Eastbourne Borough at 3pm on Wednesday December 26, 2018.
“This is closely followed by two more, against Slough Town at 3pm on Saturday December 29 2018 and then against Bath City at 3pm on Saturday January 5 2019.
“The Club and the Trust wish to thank all of the volunteers and contributors who have helped to make the return home a reality over the past month by providing resources at incredibly short notice, including Meadow Partners, Southwark Council and the National League. The local community members, tradespeople and businesses who have worked round the clock are too numerous to mention in a single statement but the Club and the Trust will ensure their efforts are individually acknowledged in due course.
“It should also be acknowledged that the work on the stadium and the pitch was completed in time to host the game against Torquay United at 3pm on Saturday December 1 2018. However, with the full support of the council and the league that game will now be our final game at Imperial Fields, and we are grateful to Tooting & Mitcham FC for their agreement.
“Announcements regarding the release of tickets for the first three league games back at Champion Hill will be made in the next week.
“Depending on FA Trophy results there is also the prospect of an earlier cup fixture at Champion Hill on Saturday December 15, 2018.”
Following the confirmation of the date for Dulwich Hamlet to return home, fans and various non league club have given their pleased reaction – take a look at what they’re saying on the next page.
