Looks like he's now at Thurrock so is facing us today:
Thurrock v Dulwich Hamlet
Bognor in the bottom 3 of Conference South. Cunts.
Dulwich Hamlet FC 2002-2003
With both sides out of the FA Trophy, I take it that it's only the weather or some other emergency that can postpone the *away* match at Lowestoft on 10 February?
I ask because rail tickets should be on sale in the next week or two, and it should be possible to pick up some cheap tickets by booking early.
Margate away, Not Police home, W&F away are all on dates that could cause postponement if those clubs are still in the Trophy.
W&F is off on 25 Nov but a different league match (poss Lowestoft at home) may be rescheduled for that date.
Yeah. Margate’s a weird one. The team they’re meant to be playing in the Trophy - Bowers & Pitsea from the Bostik North - has had its games suspended over, it seems, fielding an ineligible player - Rule E10 anyway. I think there’s a hearing about it this week.
That’s why the Trophy tie between them was postponed on Saturday. Not sure it’s usual to suspend matches? Perhaps they’re contesting the charge and want to try and have the player available for those games? No clue tbh.
Wondered why a Margate home game would be off on their 3G pitch. Not really good enough, FA should resolve these issues promptly. Unfair on Margate.
Ah yes, forgot they had that installed over the summer. Might be handy as we’re playing them in January (again).
I ain't been on urban75 in yonks (a year?). What's been happening?
oh nothing much
This is not good - claim of sexual harassment against one of our players:
As I understand this the Football Club are now investigating, and the person was banned from the premises by Chris Taylor, the general manager of the ground.
I understand the Football Club Committee will not comment on this until all parties have been spoken to, but are taking this seriously.
Sorry who was banned? That sounds like she was banned for suggesting a player harrassed her - I really hope that's not the case.
I'm sorry, I don't have the information as to how, why or the background.
If this is true then I hope the club and the police take the matter very seriously indeed and if the player is found guilty he is suitably punished/thrown out of the club.
I refer you back to my post #4128, 3 posts above yours.
Any news on the investigation, the allegation or the subsequent handling of it?
I don't know, sorry. I'm not involved in this.
I do not have any/enough details to comment on that Tweet.
As it's reportedly now a police matter, I would suggest it's prudent not to speculate publicly until the investigation is complete.
I'm sure it will be conveniently forgotten in time. Football remains a boys club and I must admit I agree with her that DHFC's stance on sexism/sexual harassment doesn't go any further than a fancy kit for IWD. In that sense, apart from not singing the tits and fanny song, it's no better than any other club.
Sorry, I cannot agree with that. We have a far better welcoming atmosphere and all-round experience than most clubs at our level. As for these current allegations...as I've said the Club are investigating them, and as has been said, if it's a police matter it's best not to speculate.
I’m not speculating about anything to do with this investigation nor talking about the all round matchday experience at DHFC. What I am doing is agreeing with one of the points made about sexual harassment and how seriously the club takes it, based on my own experience. But ok.
I fucking hate the idea of anyone coming to Hamlet and suffering any kind of harassment/discrimination, and I'd like to think if I was in earshot of any such incident, I'd step right in (although that can be a tougher call when we're away at busier grounds with a large amount of twats standing next to me).
But what pro-active steps do you think we could do to improve things?
