Fucking outrageous. Will give that a miss now.
Charging less for Billericay outrageous
I'll be in Peterborough so won't effect me
That’s my mind made up. Fuck it.
£15. For a friendly? They can GTFO.
I've tweeted them too. Now they'll regret it.
Boreham wood charging the same for there game against brentford with £12 OAPs. No student
Maybe they think 1500 of us will turn up and we can have a massive party
We can't figure it out either. It does include a pint of my least favourite beer, Shepherd Neame. But £15 for a friendly against lower league opposition is seriously taking the piss. No disrespect to you chaps.
What's the story with the Palace friendly? Liam seems very upset on twitter, Anyone know what happened?
Didn’t Liam say it all on twitter. They agreed a friendly with Gavin and then didn’t schedule it.
I’ve always been suspicious of them sending their first team to Beckenham Town and not us anyway.
Scum club. I blame Hodgson and Mark Bright.
Why? It's a lesser club.
It does seem odd that some of Maidstone's friendlies are three times more expensive than others. I'd be interested to hear the thinking behind this. I was really looking forward to that game but I'm less enthusiastic now, although I'll probably still go.
Admission prices may be a nasty shock to some people now we're in a higher league. Wealdstone and St Albans are both charging £15 for adults and £10 concessions. I haven't looked at everyone else's but I suspect our own new price of £12 for adults is the minimum for this level and plenty of others will charge more.
Further information for our first pre-season match at Walthamstow on Saturday:
More details for Dulwich friendly | Walthamstow Football Club
I think an England quarter final would be the evening fixture on Satruday, so presumably there's no longer any likelihood of an amended kick-off time.
No if England win tonight they will play quarter final at 3pm on Saturday
Buzzed: Dulwich Hamlet’s first friendly this Sat 7th July at Walthamstow FC
Maidstone seem to have changed the admission to a tenner. Game on.
Fair play if so. Joint owner said he would look into it.
I always liked him.
Walthamstow have announced on Twitter that kick off has been moved forward to 1pm to allow everyone to watch the England game
I'll update the Buzz piece now
Unfuck it then.
Actually I need to check my filofax as to my whereabouts that date too.
Half time at Walthamstow and we're 3-0 up with goals from Chambers and two of four triallists.
Starting XI (3-5-2): Edwards - Ming, triallist, Chambers - Clunis, triallist, Carew, triallist, Abrahams - Tomlin, triallist .
Full time 6-0. Further goals from Kargbo, Akinyemi and another triallist.
2nd half XI (3-5-2): Edwards - triallist, triallist, Taylor - Cook, Ferguson, Kargbo, Lawrence, Green - Akinyemi, triallist.
I'm told the club won't be announcing names of triallists yet as there are some deals yet to be confirmed, and given the numbers I doubt we can keep all of the seven who appeared today.
Haringey Borough away tonight. A new ground for me, although I've seen plenty of rugby matches at the New River Stadium a couple of hundred yards to the West. (So bear in mind that isn't their ground if you see it first.)
The ground is in White Hart Lane. Turn left out of Wood Green tube station into Lordship Lane and bus W3 will drop you opposite the ground. Otherwise it's a 1 mile walk from Wood Green Underground station.
3-1 win at Haringey in a good contest against another newly promoted side. Hamlet took the lead with an own goal from a great cross by Cook, who later limped off with a hamstring strain. Haringey equalised before the same triallist who opened the scoring on Saturday put us back in front with a neat finish from a near post cross. Lawrence sealed the win with a spectacular shot from outside the box just before the end .
Once again we changed all ten outfield players at half time and there was also a brief appearance by Andrew Allassani when Cook went off late in the first half .
A third confirmed new signing, experienced centre forward Jay May from Margate, played the second half.
First half XI (3-5-2): Edwards - Ming, triallist, Chambers - Cook (sub Allassani), triallist, Kargbo, Guimaraes, Abrahams - triallist, triallist.
Second half XI (3-5-2): Edwards - triallist, triallist, Taylor - Clunis, Ferguson, Carew, Lawrence, Green - May, Akinyemi .
As said above a good game to watch, Haringey have got some good players.
I only took a couple of photos.
Stopped off for a cheeky salt beef biegel from Brick lane on the way home
A couple more photos:
Perhaps those with a more encyclopaedic knowledge of non-League players than I have (ie any!) could tell us a bit more about this signing from what they’ve seen of him through his career? From my limited online research he seems to have a good goals to games ratio but might represent something of a change in style...? That’s not necessarily a bad thing when making a step up and also bearing in mind that the Tooting pitch isn’t as sexy-football-friendly as Champion Hill. But would be good to hear some informed takes on it.
Part of footballing trio of brothers, including Alfie (Doncaster) and Ben (possibly Bromley but think he's stopped playing now).
I guess he will be back up to Dipo and Gavin (assuming he signs on), but his best days are probably behind him. Got experience at National South level but can imagine at his age (32 I think), he'll want to be playing regularly so can expect to see him shipped out on loan at some point if he isn't playing. Played against us last year for Margate.
Even when the 2nd XI played, there was still a player who appeared in a World Cup Final in the side (Alou Diarra, 2006). Can't have had too many of them at Champion Hill.
