    Some hilarious comments by dimwits masquerading as amateur sociologists. Not sure how they think they can gauge the type of people who support us based on those photos, but I'll bet their support is nowhere near as vibrant and diverse as ours.

    Unofficial projections for next season, if you're interested.

    Non League Projections - 2018/2019

    Agreed that Dartford's ground is great. Oxford is alright - 3G pitch there. Same at Slough, which seems to be a leisure centre. Very odd.

    Think Torquay have similar troubles to yourselves, as I recall their current owners are shyster developers. Plainmoor sits in a residential area and you can guess the rest.

    That's already wrong because Woking went down from the National Premier instead of Barrow, which throws everything else out of kilter.

    I've always had a soft spot for Torquay. They battled to stay in Division Four forever, before it all fell apart.

    They've been doing the same in the National for a few seasons now until finally fell, not helped by the owners. Was our Christmas double header often and they tended to tonk us however poorly rest of season was going.

    If we hadn't have won, still no Leatherhead, Needham, Stains, Bognor, Leiston, Dorking and Lowescroft as all seem to be moved out of the league

    Sit back, hold the moral high ground and let the other Conference South sides decide if they dislike Billericay. It will be interesting to see if they can make themselves more unpopular before a ball is kicked next season.

    I can't get my head around the fact that we will be playing Torquay United. When I was growing up they were a "proper" Football League team.
    We're also just one division below Halifax, Orient & Wrexham.

    Bath is obviously a great day out, but the ground is nowhere near the city centre. So get there early and jump on a bus to Twerton.

    Woking fans are the reason Maidstone introduced segregation. Maybe we got unlucky and maybe the idiots will lose interest following relegation.

    National South looked quite weak compared to the North last season; the arrival of the likes of Torquay should help redress the balance.

    Welling is a nice short journey, with a few pubs in Bexleyheath.

    Best of luck for next season. You should now be in a position to attract some of the better players.

    Not all grounds will be as friendly as the Bostik League, some will be segregated I imagine. But for me I’m looking forward to Torquay and Bath.

    We already have great players. The same Dulwich squad beat Havant and drew with Macclesfield at Champion Hill last season.

    I went to Bath v Chippenham last August, which is a local derby, and there was no aggro. I think there may have been an away section, like when we went to Braintree, but not so it spoiled the experience. Superb old school ground .

    For most clubs, segregation kicks in one level above. The money your fans bring will be very welcome most places, reducing the likelihood of being separated from food and drink outlets. Once they realise the hipster thing is a myth, you have a chance to win over lots of new friends. What grade is your current ground?

    That's not just an away game. It's a holiday!

    The song was "We hate Gloucester too..." prior to Wallgate...

    Don't 'spose we have played them since that Cup game... Think we need a dinosaur to fill us in on details of that game and the reasons for the angst.

    They basically had the most obnoxious followers I've ever encountered at a Hamlet game. Two or three hardcore lunatics looking to fight the world and enough hangers on to make a serious nuisance of themselves. What annoyed me most is that the worst culprits travelled on the team coach and their club officials didn't make slightest effort to rein them in even when it was obvious they were out of control. They only brought around 70 supporters in an overall attendance of 400 or so; it wasn't as if the crowd was so big they could melt away unnoticed.

    Anyway that was 25 years ago. Those morons will be well into their 40s by now at least, so hopefully they're dead, in prison, or have found something else to do!
    You definitely want to earmark St Albans. Lovely old ground with an Edwardian main stand close to the station in an historic Roman cathedral city, and easily accessible on the Thameslink.

    the good news , for fellow Macclesfield coach #1 survivors , is that Oxford City's ground is on the Northern By-Pass .

    I grew up near Hungerford. By far the smallest club in the League, but a beautiful small town full of good pubs and only about an hour outside Paddington. Hoping either a Warm Weather trip or Christmas (high street is beautifully lit around the holidays)

    (waits for Massacre jokes)

    I don't ever want to see that by-pass again!

    Hamlet's only previous visit was for a League Cup tie in 1994/5, when Hungerford were two divisions below us in Isthmian League and Hamlet won 6-0. The headline in the Southwark News, courtesy of current ITN news reporter Damon Green incorporated the words "Hungerford" and "massacre". Have to say our shooting was lethal that night.

    The first line was 'Dulwich Hamlet shot on sight...' The headline was 'Hungerford Massacre'.

    Christ, that's seriously poor taste. We still sing about hating Gloucester despite people trying to get it going with Cheltenham instead (and think sames goes for them).

    Cheltenham is one of the best clubs with the most magnanimous supporters I've ever visited. The polar opposite of Gloucester.

    I've only visited Gloucester for cricket and it felt like a very strange place. Very "Royston Vasey".
