Popular winger Dean Lodge has now signed terms for the new season at Dulwich Hamlet, and the signing is being funded by the supporter-led 12th Man Scheme.
Dean has been at Dulwich Hamlet since 2013, and has played 39 games, scoring 11 goals. After his 2014/15 campaign was hit by injury, he has worked hard to rebuild his fitness and is now in a position to commit to Hamlet for the season ahead.
With the club playing budget already fully committed, the 12th Man has stepped in to fund the signing using money generously donated by supporters.
In addition, we can now confirm that last week's signing of Calum Willock is also being funded by the 12th Man. Calum brings invaluable experience to the playing squad, and this additional signing has already started repaying the fans with his superb performance in Hamlet's first game of the season against Canvey Island on Saturday. Calum scored after just three minutes to help start the season in the best possible fashion.
The 12th Man Scheme relies on donations from supporters to help raise valuable additional funds, exclusively for use on additional players. The Scheme has been running since 2012 and has raised over £22,000, bringing in numerous players as and when required. You can read a short history of the Scheme on the 12th Man website.
