    Margate away is go, go, go! Until the weather intervenes....

    Only the heaviest snowfall for at least 5 years can intervene, given that they now have a 3G pitch.

    Great news...sort of. Our players have blamed the "poor" performances against Hendon and Harlow due to playing on 3G.

    Yet we train on 3G and I recall a conversation with Kevin James a while back where he said they preferred playing on that surface. Of course, some 3G surfaces are better than others...

    Well it's not Hayles and Wetherstone's preference. The bounce over Hayles' head at Hendon, which led to the penalty was particularly awkward.

    That bounce was definitely the main factor in the penalty incident, but I've seen similar incidents on poor natural pitches. And I'm not sure the ball would have sat up quite so conveniently for Carew to score our first goal in the same match on a grass pitch.

    Well, it's going to be a 3G pitch whether we go there on a Saturday or a Tuesday so at least it's much less likely to be a Tuesday!

    So when you say 'our players'...you mean the two you have mentioned...

    Presume you mean the new January 2018 edition, as they go on sale so early, and not the one dated December?

    Fair play, I hadn't realise you were a dab hand with a Ouija board.

    I'm sure both of those two played on far worse surfaces than Hendon"s 3G.

    Ossie Bayram far right. Kimm Connett 6th from right. Paul & Andy Edwards are the tall ones at the back between Kimm & Ossie. Peter Smith in the centre in the khaki jacket.

    Brian Shears 6th from left in the grey suit. Not an ex-player but former DHFC vice-chairman who initially started and co-ordinated the ex-player association.

    Looks like John Everitt 5th left and Steve Bowtell back centre with beard & glasses - best goalkeeper I've ever seen for the Hamlet. I'm sure I've seen some of the others play but everyone had much more hair in the 70s!

    darryl this wasn't supposed to happen

    Train travel to Brightlingsea Regent away (10 March) scuppered by engineering works, annoyingly.

    It's a replacement bus from Newbury Park tube to Ingatestone then hourly train to Wivenhoe (or change at Colchester), then local bus to Brightlingsea. Those replacement buses can get horribly snarled up on the A12 heading out.

    No details up for train travel for Needham Market away (24 March), but every other weekend in March is screwed by engineering works so it's not looking good, unfortunately.

    I read recently that those particular engineering works affect every weekend until Easter, so it doesn't look good for Needham Market. At least there's the option of a bus-free route from Liverpool Street via Cambridge for that one.

    Hi guys,

    Jamal and I are after a few pics of the Hamlet from down the years for an upcoming video, and were wondering if anyone could send us any of the following:

    1. Pics of Edgar Kail
    2. General photos of the Hamlet playing in the 30s
    3. Photos from the Amateur Cup success of 1937 at Upton Park
    4. Photos of the 1948-49 title winners
    5. Generic pics of the side from 60s and 70s
    6. Pics of old Champion Hill stadium, preferably with bumper crowds.
    Any help with these would be greatly appreciated, and we will of course credit the pics. Feel free to DM me here.

    Thanks in advance!!
