    Very enjoyable Cup game in the sun - with a very respectable Cup crowd of 1,689
    As soon as the first goal went in Bognor's players seemed resigned to defeat and only one or two players seemed to have any heart for the fight and their youngsters struggled
    For once Dulwich showed some clinical finishing
    Danny Mills just hangs in the air like a basketball player (nod to Forward The Hamlet Podcast) his second was glorious as was the fifth goal for Yusuff (thanks to Nyren unselfishness)
    Days gone by Bognor would have run us close but big gulf opened up and I understand they are now 20th in their respective League (and you can see why)
    still, they turned up with some loyal fans who stayed to the end and were still trying to urge their team on if only in vain - hope they can turn it around
    Lets also hope this also turns into better Hamlet League performances

    Why would they care about getting them?

    Because you can’t get an easier draw. Obv. The players know.

    Must admit to mixed feelings watching what was probably the worst Bognor performance against Dulwich in all my years watching The Hamlet. It’s great to give the Rocks a tonking but this was akin to American military action since World War 2. I mean the only country they have actually beaten without backup from other nations since then has been Grenada .

    Bognor also had a rollicking from their management team after the game, could hear it down the other end of the corridor. Still, that didn’t stop Ryan Case from wandering down to press his ear to the door whilst completely naked!!

    Not sure that would be much help. They played like their confidence is completely shot.

    Maybe the players need a visit from Jack Pearce to their homes or alternatively offering them out in the bar.

    With such an amazing win percentage, Bognor certainly couldn’t get a better manager.

    After all, there isn’t the budget after JP has driven all the fans away. It must have been a mirage when Bognor used to beat us under their good management teams.

    Long live Jack Pearce!

    I guess we should be grateful it was only his ear that was pressed to the door.

    Son of Roy Really?

    Just my little joke. As we know the fortunes of non league football teams rise and fall. At the moment we are in the ascendancy but it won't always be like that. So let us enjoy the moment keeping alive the rivalry with Leatherhead, Tooting and #Rickerty, just as they have had their moments in the past. The rivalry is important but it's only bantz.
    It gives muppets like David Lower and Mark Baker a raison d'etre!

    Any news as to how President Jack is? I understand he had a bit of a tumble yesterday and cut his head. Hopefully he’s ok and there’s no lasting ill-effects.

    I didn’t know Bognor had invaded Grenada.

    Given he wasn't in the matchday squad, then this is all the more peculiar!

    He is back home a bit bruised and cut but otherwise OK. He was detained overnight but allowed home this morning.

    Well hopefully he wasn’t allowed in the boardroom like that... I mean he wasn’t wearing a tie for Pete’s sake

    When we beat Merstham 5-0 in March 17 I believe, the day we wore our purple kit for International Women’s Day

    Bit annoying to get a Step 6 side when we could have faced those down to Step 9. That said, we are at home and will have to beat better to lift the trophy at Wembley in May.

    People get too hung up about nice away trips. There’s a Wembley final at stake here ffs.

    We’re Step Two, which is Level Six.

    Well then it's even more annoying to get a step two side when we could have faced someone from level nine.
