    Programme for Dulwich Hamlet V Bristol City in Youth FA Cup February 1995

    refers to

    Bristol City having never played the Hamlet (previously) at Champion Hill.

    However they note Bristol City played Millwall reserves in 1994

    and "back in 1983 Bristol City visited the second champion hill stadium for an FA cup match with Corinthian casuals,
    quote "a match some Dulwich fans have memories of and which is still talked about today"

    I believe from quick look at internet, some Millwall fans turned up uninvited

    result was 0-0 Corinthians losing 4-0 in the replay

    Dulwich hamlet Youth FA Cup team

    Edwin Appiah, Wayne Austin, Denver Birmingham, Tony Chin, Allen Fitchett, Ricahard Galloway, Derron Herman, Tony Leary, Steve Lewington, Rodney McLean, Adam Monger, John Phillips, Bobby Rose, Trevor Speller, John Seeds, Steve Wiszk

    I edited that proggie. I wasn't living in London when the match was played but believe Millwall fans were invited down to "protect" Champion Hill by someone handing out flyers at Euston as they returned from a northern match the previous week. Think it was that one I upset Mishi by using the headline "The Secretary speaks!" on his column as though it was some sort of miracle.

    Some decent players in that team. Orient wanted Denver Bermingham but couldn't find him to sign him. Tony Chinn made numerous first team appearances, a couple more probably should have done but it wasn't to be.

    Corinthians merged with The Casuals in 1939.

    I think the Corinthian-Casuals attendance, from memory was between 2,500 and under 3,000.

    I was merely 'Youth Team Secretary' at the time.

    And the leaflets were distributed around Kings Cross, and certain boozers down the Old Kent Road area, as I 'vaguely' understand it! ;)

    The club notes at the top of that issue make for interesting reading. There were a few similar comments in local newspapers in the first twenty or so years of the club

    22 September 1945 Dulwich hamlet V Corinthian Casuals

    Dulwich Hamlet at home but had to play in white (shirts/strip) because Casuals were playing in chocolate and pink because of Isthmian League rules

    Having the home team change kit in the event of a clash was common practice in rugby union before they had a league structure, but I had not heard of it in football before, especially not in a league, where presumably there would be a league handbook with the teams' colours listed. I think the reason used in rugby union was that many fixtures were arranged on an ad hoc basis, so the visitors might not know the home team's colours, and you could not expect them to bring more than one kit on the off chance of a clash, whereas the home team would have access to a spare kit.

    It was the rule in the London Senior Cup as recently as the early 1980s. It had obviously switched to the away team being required to change for Isthmian League matches by the 1950s as there's a photo of us playing Casuals at The Oval in the mid-fifties in which Hamlet are playing in white shirts. (Or maybe that was a London Senior cup match?)

    In October 1989

    Dulwich Hamlet played Merthyr Tydfil in the FA Cup - 4Q

    drawing 1-1 at home* (Paul Williams) (attendance 385)
    and losing in the replay
    4-2 at Merthyr Tydfil (Martin Gillings and Wayne O'Dwyer) (attendance 2,027

    But why was the home game played at Fisher ?

    Any thoughts at looking into getting a Southwark blue plaque at 57 Alleyn Park for "Lorraine 'Pa' Wilson founder of Dulwich Hamlet FC"?
    Of course, the current owner might not like the idea...

    The old Champion Hill ground was all but comdemned....the safety certificate at a ground that was widely acknowledged as having a 30,000 capacity in it's pre-war heyday, was cut to 300, post- Hillsborough, and for a time only the centre of the old main stand could be used for spectators. Thus this tie was switched to Salter Road.

    I'm surprised you don't recall, as such a long standing fan, but I guess time flies & it's easy to forget.
