Looks like a pervert.
Wish I could find the old programme but didn’t Boredom Wood once produce a cover with the Eiffel Tower gracing it?
Was once suggested that committee members adopt a club blazer with the attached on the drawing board...
I think it was the Dulwich Hamlet cricket club (formed before the football) blazers where we got our colours and stripes from
I'm not sure the football club ever had those blazers. The colours are believed to have originated from Dulwich College (blue) and Westminster School (pink) as two prominent players (brothers) from DHFC's early years attended those schools. Presumably they also played for DHCC, as did many players right up to the 1950's?
You think.. you mean you haven’t found a press cutting to prove it?
Yes they did... was it in 2000?
The origins of why DHFC switched from white to pink and blue olours is another that has vanished into the mists of time. The most common version is that it came from the two brothers schools.
The brothers are almost certainly the Lloyd brothers "who taught us how to play". If anyone has access to the two school's enrollment lists in around 1890 - 95 it would be interesting to know whether they did attend those schools.
As the Lloyd's weren't founder members of DHFC a switch of colours in their honour could explain the move to pink and blue.

I hope that’s the queue for a spot on the coach tomorrow?
I brought my kid from not a lot older than that. There's a photo of him very bemused on my shoulders during the post league win at about 15 months old, when we came up from the South.
Buzzed: Dulwich Hamlet LGBT History Month scarf goes on sale this Saturday- get yours before they sell out!
Scarf looks great but I'm probably not going to get to the game Saturday as my father in law is in hospital having stem cell transplant (sorry to go all x-factor on you) so If anyone can get me one I'll pay and put a extra donation in too!
I pass the ground each night on way home so could meet up easy and am a season ticket holder. cheers
Three big home games coming up for Dulwich Hamlet in February – grab your tickets before they sell out!
Have heard that former DHFC manager Joe Fascione sadly passed away on 5th February which was his 74th birthday. He had a great sense of humour, which you needed with us lot back in the late 80s.
Thoughts are with his family at this sad time
I found this profile of Joe's playing career at Chelsea, where his teammates included some of their greats:

While I appreciate it’s for a good cause, I’m not a fan of the red on pink combination for this special kit for Saturday’s game - it looks a bit like the colour has run in the wash. Perhaps a red sash on blue shirt would have been better?
Given that this is a charity kit that will never be worn again after Saturday, I hope you can put aside your sartorial preferences for one game
We're not Crystal Palace. I just hope Hemel are aware of this change to our usual colours as they normally play in all red. Otherwise they might need to borrow a pink & blue kit!
Their away kit is a rather snazzy green number.
Isn't it just
Nice kit but that's a different club.
Do you think originally they wore green tank tops over white t-shirts? And then as printing technology advanced the two became one?
I hope so.
I know the idea for Arsenals white sleeved shirts came when legendary manager Herbert Chapman walked into the club secretary's office and saw him wearing a red waistcoat over his white shirt. If he'd been wearing a pink shirt that day Arsenal might now play in something resembling our Red Thread kit.
Green is a good choice of away kit for anyone whose colours are blue or red as almost no one plays in green & blue or green & red. More league clubs should use green away kits. There was a ridiculous colour clash in last night's Millwall v Sheffield Wednesday match, with both sides basically wearing blue.
There was a similar problem at Xmas when I was playing FIFA on the Nintendo Switch against Juventus and Millwall were in their stripped 2017 kit. Made it difficult to see who was who. Probably explained how I managed to beat Juventus 1-0
I went to watch Millwall v Wednesday on Tuesday night. Was surprised we (Wednesday) didn't change kits - but in the end I don't think it was a problem. Teams change kits at the drop of a hat nowadays, usually to help sell more replica shirts.
According to Wednesday manager Steve Bruce that was down to the referee who refused to allow them to play in their yellow change kit for reasons known only to him.

I’ll admit it looks a lot better in the flesh!
