It's often been said that the English don't celebrate St. George's Day enough. Well let's change that at Champion Hill this year


For St. George's Day is on Tuesday 23rd April, which coincides with our home Ryman League Division One South match with Crawley Down Gatwick, as we continue with our promotion push.

There are some out there who have their own agenda for St. George's Day, in society, who use the occassion to peddle their myths and lies about asylum seekers, refugees and foreigners in general, to push ther' English' cause.

You won't hear any of that at Dulwich Hamlet! As a Club we are proud to be based in our great capital, where our fanbase is the most vibrant, buzzing & all-inclusive of the London non-league clubs. We don't care where you are from, or what your heritage is, as long as you love PINK & BLUE!

And St. George himself would appreciate that too, as not only is he the patron saint of England, but also in the following places: Canada, Croatia, Portugal, Cyprus, Greece, Georgia, Serbia, Bulgaria, Romania, Bosnia and Herzegovina, and the Republic of Macedonia. Cities include Moscow in Russia, Genova in Italy, Ljubljana in Slovenia, Beirut in Lebanon, Qormi and Victoria in Malta and many others. It is also celebrated in the old Crown of Catalonia-Aragon in Spain—Aragon, Catalonia, Valencia, and Majorca. To name but a few!

Why not help the Hamlet celebrate the fact that London is the greatest city in the world, where peeople from all creeds and countries mix together, indeed play football in the same Dulwich Hamlet teams by bringing a St. George's Dulwich Hamlet decorated flag to the Crawley Down Gatwick game, if you are proud to be English? And if you are not English yourself, but love being in England then why not have your own flag behind the goal alongside, from the country you are from, or where you feel your roots are, and we can have a riot of clour behind the goal!
