Head To Dulwich Hamlet On Non-League Day

With no Premier League fixtures scheduled for this week, the club are encouraging Eagles fans to attend some local football as part of Non-League Day this Saturday.

There are a number of local clubs who have special offers available to fans whose normal teams aren't in action, with one of those being Dulwich Hamlet FC.

They are operating a "pay what you like" scheme for their Ryman League Premier Division game with Hampton & Richmond Borough on Saturday, which kicks off at 3pm.

Once costs have been covered, Dulwich Hamlet will be making a donation to two homeless charities: The Robes Project & UK Homes 4 Heroes.

The club are hoping to smash their attendance record of 1,835 for this fixture, and as well as the game there will be food and drink available, including real ale from local breweries, and a march to the ground starting at 2pm from the north-west corner of Peckham Rye Park to allow new fans to mingle with regulars and learn about the club on the way to the ground.

After the match, Dulwich’s manager Gavin Rose, his coaching staff and first team will all be taking part in an ice bucket challenge on the pitch, with the money raised jointly split between the Mayor of Southwark's charitable causes and the players' chosen charity, the ALS Foundation.

Dulwich Hamlet Chairman Jack Payne said: “We’ve been unfortunate in the past to have been playing away on Non-League Day.  This year we’re hoping for a huge crowd, with a great atmosphere to make up for that.  We hope even more new fans will discover the great football we are playing under Gavin Rose”.
