Hamlet v Braintree Town, Saturday 4 January 2020, 3pm


Reluctant Hardliner
Fully expect the Darts to sneak into the play offs this season and to be strong candidates to go up next year. Aleays felt they were too tentative / over-cautious under Tony Burman in the National League.

Everything is set up at Princes Park for Dartford to establish themselves at the next level under the right manager.

People often wax on about Maidstone coming back from the dead but they forget that the old Stones demise meant the near-death if Dartford. The club turning it around in the last decade is just as remarkable a story.

Record League Victory 9-2

On the 28th October 1978 Dulwich Hamlet defeated Boreham Wood by 9-2 to record their biggest Isthmian League victory for 41 years.


Boreham Wood lost their goalkeeper with an eye injury after only two minutes' play howebver his replacement did make several fine saves and could not be faulted for only one of the nine goals.

George Borg opened the scoring from the penalty spot after seven minutes and shortly afterwards Paul Edwards almost made it two when his header hit the underside of the crossbar. Boreham Wood then enjoyed their best spell of the match, with the Dulwich defence looking shakier than it had all season, and they twice went close before Jackson eventually equalised on the half hour. within two minutes, however Ossie Bayram restored our advantage when he ran through from the half way line to score a brilliant individual goal. In the 35th minute, some excellent work by Tony James enabled Paul Hanifan to increase our lead then, three minutes later Chris Lewington battled his way through the visitors rearguard in typically determined fashion and shot in from 18 yards. Hamlet led 4-1 at half time.

Immediately after the break George Borg struck the far post with a cross cum shot, but we soon moved further ahead when Carretta put through his own goal from Chris Lewington's centre. Boreham wood reduced the arrears through Watson but we scored again in the 63rd minute when Ossie Bayram nipped in on the blind side of Wood's defence to flick home a quickley taken free kick from Chris Lewington. Our forwards, strongly supported by the midfield trio, were now comleteley dominanat and goal number seven came from another George Borg penalty aftrt tony James had been brought down. Two minutes later, George completed his hat-trick with a cracking left footed drive from the edge of the area. Alan Hart then hit the bar before, finally Ossie Bayram notched his third and our ninth goal, heading in Chris Lewington's corner at the near post

Ossie Bayram (3) George Borg (3) (2 pens) Paul Hanifan (1) Chris Lewington (1) O.G (1)

The two hat-tricks scored by two players in the same game Ossie Bayram and George Borg against Boreham Wood was last achieved in 1950/51 when Tommy Jover (4) and Norman Tate (3) ina 7-1 defeat of Clappton in the London senior Cup

The programme also reports that Dulwich Hamlet have scored nine goals or more in the Isthmian League match on five occassions

1937/38 Wimbledon 1 Dulwich Hamlet 9
1927/28 Dulwich Hamlet 10 Civil Service 2
1925/26 Civil Service 3 Dulwich Hamlet 11
1921/22 The Casuals 2 Dulwich Hamlet 9
1920/21 West Norwood 1 Dulwich Hamlet 10

Does anyone actually collate Dulwich Hamlet FC stats ?
John Lawrence, the proggue editor, is the man responsible unless something has changed.

Also, from memory, the 7-1 FA Cup win in 1995 was v Southwick. We had a frightening front line back in those days and it could have been far worse for the visitors. To their credit they kept going and got a good reception when they scored their goal.

Certainly was a lovely day for football, and it turned out to be a great day.

Being a season ticket holder for the first time this year, and subsequently going to more games than usual, having only seen one win back in August has been a bit, well, shit. So by the end there was almost a sense of delerium within me and others around me that felt good.

Shamir Mullings stuck out for me today as someone who really made a difference. His first goal was taken really well.

Hoping for some more days like that in the near future.
