    Despite being a relatively new convert to Champion Hill, I spent most of my cousins wedding breakfast ,yesterday afternoon, surreptitiously checking my phone under the table. Gutted about the result, but, to be honest, more gutted I couldn't be among the Rabble one last time this season. Can't wait for next season, for me, this one has been short but very very sweet, and made me fall back in love with football again

    Now, where can someone who didn't attend get their hands on a copy of Hamlet Historion to help pass the close season?

    For future games with crowds that big, I've a feeling the "12th man bar" could become a regular feature. Shaun's half-time trip to Sainsbury's went down very well, and all profits went into the bucket!!

    Incredible game yesterday and what a brilliant season. Obviously gutted to miss out on the play-offs but great to end on such a good performance and with such a big crowd. We've shown we can play well against anyone in this league and with such a young and talented squad I can see us doing very well again. When Dulwich are on form (which we saw at times yesterday) the football is really something else. I don't think I've ever seen a non-league team play quite like it.

    Or, indeed, known any club quite like Hamlet.

    Yesterday was absolutely brilliant and, on reflection, arguably the best way to close the season. Sometimes a really good moral victory is a very fitting end, especially in front of that kind of crowd. What we all need to do is to keep encouraging people to come to Champion Hill because, like me, they will get hooked. I had two Premiership club season ticket holders with me yesterday and they absolutely loved it...... "You can really take a drink outside?"; "There's no segregation? "; "kids can just run around?"; "£2.50 a pint!". Both bought scarves.

    What a picture. Lovely to get both fan and player celebration in one.

    And if you squint, you can see me walking down the steps from the bar, arms aloft, pint in hand. Perfect timing.

    Yeh OK we didnt make the play offs, but umm, I don't see Wealdstone, Kingstonian or Lowestoft with the mothafuckin' Isthmian Charity Shield?

    That's right guys and dolls: we're champions for the second season running!

    PINK ARMY!

    And without the good Tricky Skills, I wouldn't be yet another Dulwich Hamlet convert...

    I've been going to Charlton for 15 years, slowly getting bored and irritated with it all, but sticking with it out of habit and thinking "oh, it'll get better". But the handful of Dulwich matches I've been to this season have made me rediscover why football's great. It's just FUN - I can cycle to the ground, take my bike in the ground, watch the game with a beer if I like, have a laugh, walk around the pitch, chat and watch some bloody entertaining football. Nobody giving it the big'un, everyone on the same side, everyone having fun. It's just so bloody simple.

    The Wealdstone away game sealed it for me - terrific match, terrific time, terrific people.

    I'm not renewing my Charlton season ticket this summer - I need a rest from all that. I'm going to come to Dulwich some more instead, and do a few Oyster card away days. And I think next season starts on my birthday...

    I couldn't make it either - would love to get my hands on a copy too.

    I'm not sure if the content in the magazine is the same as on the Hamlet Historian website, either way they're both really good read but I would like a copy.

    For once I'm going to praise the East Dulwich Forum as a member jonsuissy to give him credit has posted a couple of pics with some great views of the old ground.

    I've a few I took back in the late 80's knocking around somewhere, if I can find them I'll post them here.

    Saturday was my fourth time to Champion Hill - and it was another unforgettable day out! Thanks to all of you, I met again. And thanks to all of you, I met for the first time. I loved all the conversations, the Brick Brewery (and singing songs I couldn't sing in germany :p )!

    I promised to bring the new Altona-Dulwich-flag to the Adolf-Jäger-Kampfbahn and can demonstrate that I did so for our home match against VfL Pinneberg (4-2, Att: 513):

    This was my first full season as a Hamlet fan and OH MY DAYS, has it been fucking awesome.

    I don't really have much to say that hasn't been said already about the season as a whole but I have a few personal highlights:

    Home v T****** and M****** - My first Transpontine derby. We won.

    Away v Wingate and Finchley - It was my first away game and the first time I really started chatting to people that I didn't know already at the game. It was also Tom's birthday and he insisted that he started all of the songs. Ellis Green was returning from his first long injury of the season, the sense of excitement at getting to sing the Ellis Green song when he came off the bench was one of those feelings that you wish you could take to every game. He also put the ball in for the winning goal. Lovely little ground, I hope they do get a reprieve and stay up.

    Home v Maidstone - There seems, for the most part, to be a lot of good will between our fans and their's. Superb atmosphere and two well taken goals from Clunis and Walker.

    Away v Lowestoft - Shit game, shit weather, longest journey of the season, shortest day of the year. There were about 15 of us, no one could be arsed to sing as it was so cold, windy and wet. It was miserable. However, this was the moment I realised I was a Hamlet supporter.

    Away v Carshalton - To be honest, this was more about The Hope which we had a few drinks in prior to the game but we also thrashed a terrible side and came back drunk and happy. Jordan Clarke, he takes the train....

    Away v Wealdstone - I don't need to tell you why this was so good.

    Home v Kingstonian - What a way to end a season, not with the result that we wanted but there was all the tension that you want out of the last game. Fantastic turnout and confirmation that we are the best fans ever. Got to meet the two lads over from Altona. I got to meet a load of the players that I had previously not met in the bar after the game. I chatted with Kevin James who gushed over our support over the season and asked that we keep up the good work.

    Special mentions go to the trips to Enfield, Kingstonian, East Thurrock, Billericay and Hampton and Richmond. I wasn't at Margate and am still disappointed with myself for not trying harder to get there.

    An amazing season in so many ways. Champion Hill is an absolute fantastic place to be on a Saturday.

    Would seem that was Erhun's final match for the pink and blues. I'm already dreaming of his return as 35 year old veteran still pulling the strings from midfield. An absolute legend of a player, not enough superlatives are available for this wonderful footballer.
