    I'm an overseas fan from Sweden travelling to the away game versus Billericay Town. If someone could give me information on which pub Dulwich Hamlet supporters will be in pre-kick off it'd be great.

    There are several good places to drink in Billericay and I'm sure there will be some Hamlet supporters in all of them: The Railway, The Coach & Horses, The Blue Boar (Wetherspoons) and Billericay Brewery. I'll post further details when I have more time tomorrow if no one else beats me to it.

    There are sodding rail engineering works on the Billericay line yet again for this match, although it's only the last bit between Shenfield and Billericay this time. Replacement bus service taking 15 minutes.

    Map of the town linked here:

    Location Map.

    The ground is at Blunts Wall Road in the bottom left corner of the map, which is centred on Chapel street.

    My recommended pubs are the Railway, in the High Street between the station and the junction of Western Road: GRAY & SONS

    The Blue Boar, in the High Street just past the junction with Western Road: The Blue Boar | Pubs In Billericay - J D Wetherspoon

    The Coach and Horses in Chapel Street: The Coach And Horses

    Billericay Brewery Micropub in Chapel Street: Micropub – Billericay Brewing Company

    Yes, I shall be there. I don't know if I will be in any of those pubs before the match (I prefer drinking after the game) but I would guess 150 or so Hamlet supporters will be there and you're probably most likely to find some of us wearing colours at the Blue Boar or the Micropub and I'm sure everyone will be happy to talk if you introduce yourself. We often have supporters from other nations attending our matches and we're glad to have them with us. In fact our previous messageboard had a Swedish webmaster, Jon "Sven" Eriksson, but he moved away from South London and I haven't seen him for a few years now.
