Ade Yuseff has joined Dover

STRIKER MAKES MOVE TO CRABBLE – DOVER ATHLETIC FC

https://www.pitchero.com/clubs/dulwichhamlet/news/ade-yusuff-departs-for-dover-athletic-2494907.html

Guess this move makes sense for us as it looked like he was falling out of contention again, and Dover are desperate for someone to put the ball in the back of net.
Pity. I liked him. He played with bags of energy and enthusiasm and seemed to be a decent goalscorer. Still, the last thing we need is a goalscorer. :rolleyes:

Well, we've already signed Dylan Kearney so right now I think we just have to hope that he turns out to be more suitable.

I've also seen an unsubstantiated report on the Hemel Hempstead forum saying that Dipo Akinyemi has left Braintree. (No mention of anyone else signing him yet.)

Not thrilled to see Ade upwardly binned but I thought a lot of Kearney's movement on Saturday looked promising. Could be quite something if he clicks with those tasked with getting the ball into the right places.

It's correct, Braintree confirmed it a day or so ago.

Shame about Ade I wanted him to be successful at the club but unfortunately didn’t have enough quality at this level. Great turn of pace and a tidy finish but often a poor first touch and his movement of the ball wasn’t great. He just didn’t get himself into enough scoring opportunities.

Hopefully Dylan can link with Mills from the get go and bag a few goals, not just for his confidence but for the others around him. I think Gavins decision to release Yussuf and bring in another striker proven at this level makes sense, fingers crossed he hits the ground running!

I think Yussuff was just another player in a long line of players that we signed but didn't really have a plan for. He was a prolific goalscorer at the level below as a striker, yet we seemed determined to turn him into a left winger/inside forward, and seemed to be baffled when he looked very out of sorts. Very much the Ian Daly of this season.

I don't think he was particularly good anyway: he sulked quite a bit and he gave away stupid fouls. He'd bustle about without really being productive. I think Dipo offers far more.

Completely agree with StephenMac about Kearney: I thought he looked bright and put himself about a bit. Good to see a striker causing problems even if they aren't scoring.

We seem to recruit a lot of players who don't fit comfortably into our preferred system, usually wingers or full backs when we decide to play 3-5-2. For me both Yusuff and Akinyemi needed to be one of a pair of strikers in a 4-4-2 or 3-5-2. Neither has the all round game to play as a number ten or a winger. I always think 4-4-2 is a good back to basics system when you're in a rut and need to turn things around, but we never seem to use it. (It worked for a while last season when Akinyemi and Thompson were the strikers with Green as a left winger and Cook at right back.)

I've always felt you should be able to get an idea of what is going to be the preferred system based on the pre-seaon recruitment, but I couldn't quite put my finger on what that would be this year. We looked really heavy in central midfield but light in wide attacking positions. I might be misremembering but I think we only had Clunis and Monakana, with White added relatively late on, though we kicked off the season playing two wingers.

I don't know if that was a consequence of the belated planning that Ben referred to at the Fans Forum this week.

It's felt particularly scattergun this season with constant tinkering of personnel and formation, as if the hope is to land on something that works, rather than something more formulated.

Spot on. Gavin has tried almost everything in our current poor form, different players, different shapes, even played the same team and shape consecutively so I suspect some fresh faces might help and I trust the recruitment of the club above all else, we have brought in some fantastic players over the years, especially last season with Aryan and Hunte coming in and having an immediate impact. Dylan and Ainsworth could be the missing ingredients. Who knows. I reckon we are close to seeing a turnaround, hopefully we take all three points against Havant.

But we had a load of fresh faces in the summer and look what that's done. That just feels like an excuse for the management. There comes a point where a good manager will get the best out of what he's got, especially having spent a load of money getting the squad together in the first place.

Was thinking more along the lines of mid-season acquisitions. Having said that, we have plenty of quality in the squad. Makes are league position and current form all the more frustrating.

JUNIOR KADI (Assistant Manager):

He had an earlier spell with the Hamlet in seasons 2001/02 and 2002/03, and his other former clubs include Woking, Slough Town, Lewes, Beckenham Town, Dartford and Carshalton Athletic where he was a key member of the squad that reached the Ryman Premier Division play-offs. He made 183 appearances for Dulwich, the last of which was in season 2012/13.

According to the limited programme information I could find in old programmes. Kadi's first game for the Hamlet was a Ryman League Division One game at Bromley when he came on in the 74th minute as substitute for Tony Chin on 1st April 2002, the game ending 1-0 to Bromley. Kadi's first full game was also in the League on the 6th April 2002 when Dulwich Hamlet played Slough Town (0-0) on 6th April at the new Champion Hill in front of a crowd of 233

He returned to Champion Hill in the summer of 2009 as Gavin Rose’s assistant.
He began his career as a youngster at Coventry City and in 2000 was a member of Kingstonian’s FA Trophy winning side.

Anyone got a list or link to Dulwich Hamlet top goal scorers ?

Came across reference in old programme (October 1978)

Ossie Bayram's goal at Hitchin in October 1978 was his 50th first team goal for the Club. Surprisingly, only two other players have passed the half century mark since the early 1960's and they are Trevor Blandon and Alec Jackson who each netted 61 goals. Three others, however fell just short of that target Alan Wyatt and Charlie Pooley (49 a piece) and Vic Heasman (45)
Incidentally, the last Dulwich player to reach a century of first team goals was England Amateur international Leslie Brown who scored 121 goals between 1956 and 1961
