I know the chap on the far left still goes to games.
What about the others they still about ?

Great picture, would be interesting if anyone had any more like this one, especially the older ones.

I rocked up in September 1991 and am quietly confident the majority of the people pictured don't just watch the club still, they post here.I'll let them choose whether they identify themselves.

I've seen a picture of the rabble at Fisher Athletic in about 93. Probably about ten strong with me and Christian Burt amongst the faces missing from above. I think Amin Haque is in that photo too

Sorry never reconized you from that pic tbh
There was a great picture i see online a while ago now of a group of Dulwich fans at a away game.
Included Bob "the coat/pipe", and the nice chap who used to sell the programmes a few years ago.,name escapes me,Plus a few others.
I used to have a picture that was taken at Leeds the last year of the old amateur cup final of all the dulwich fans at the game, gave it to a chap who worked for the club to copy and never got it back.
He passed away and his Dad threw all the Dulwich programmes and memorabilia away a while after, including i take it the photograph as well unfortunately.
Included in this collection which i know for a fact was the Amateur cup final at Millwall fc the old Den which involved Dulwich as he had shown it to me.
A copy of this programme came up at a auction very recently and fetched over £1,000 with the add ons etc !
Any one know somebody or got a copy of this programme themselves out of interest

There was also apparently an interview with him in a recent edition of the 'Herne Hill Society' newsletter a few months ago, although I haven't seen a copy personally.

Shropshire Cricket

Mr. Harry Beaumont, was an all-round sportsman. he played cricket for Shropshire and football for Dulwich Hamlet FC. and was head at All Saints’ School, Wellingborough
Northampton Mercury - Friday 28 February 1941
There's either an incredible co-incidence or the Mercury probably has the wrong name.

The DHFC in WW1 book (still available from 12th Man I believe) covered the story of DHFC and SCCC player Arthur John Riseley. He lost his father in WW1, his mother collapsed and died three weeks later.

In WW2 Arthur worked as an ARP Warden or Special Constable, reports vary, and as Assistant Master at Holy Trinity School, Wimbledon. Whilst on duty he was sent to his own house, 455 West Barnes Lane, Merton which had been bombed. His two children had been killed, his wife was badly wounded. The Riseley children appear in the CWGC records as civilian casualties. The records confirms both the address and that Arthur John Riseley was the father.

Holy Trinity school was subsequently evacuated to Wellingborough, where Arthur transferred to be Headmaster at All Saints School, seemingly in 1941.

His tale looks remarkably similar to that of Harry Beaumont.

SLP Saturday 24 October 1896 Dulwich Hamlet First League Game
View attachment 158426
Not the first league game. From memory we played league games from our second season . We seem to have started playing mid season in our first season, quite common then, and to have played friendlies until our second season. Press reports as early as this are rare though so please keep posting.

BTW Dulwich St Peters were a good side and the South London Press printed a proposal we merge with them to form one top local side. The article date is in the DHFC in WW1 book but I don't have a copy to hand.

Morning all. My grandad played for Dulwich Hamlet in the 1930s but I've no idea of any further details: number of appearances, goals scored (if any), any honours won and so on. I'm just curious to know more, are any club historians here able to tell me anything about his Hamlet career? His name was Len Polley. He apparently also played for Tooting and Mitcham.
