    Question ?
    Do Hamlet players usually stick to the same shirt/squad number ?

    This wasn't too bad.

    Reckon they might have got a bit of a shock if they’d tried to frisk me! Hate to think what one of those heavies would make of the “bag for life” ! That said the thing could prove useful for smuggling illicit hooch into a “dry” game!!!!

    Hi Everyone, I am a forum visitor and wanted to share my thoughts of the game.

    I went along as a neutral, just interested in seeing some non-league football on a quiet boxing day. I was really impressed with what I saw from Dulwich Hamlet, especially when they were going forward. A well deserved 3-1 victory. Tooting and Mitcham thought hard and did have a few good chances, but the scoreline was fair and Dulwich Hamlet truly were a cut above. It's a shame that you have Billericay in your league, because I can't help but think that Dulwich would likely be running away with things, if the money men of Billericay were not in the same league as you.

    Reise Allassani looked dangerous, his positioning was great and made some amazing runs, he gave the Tooting & Mitcham defence a headache until the clash of heads later on in the second half. I can't imagine he will be around at Dulwich for much longer with the form that he is in. It would be a shame for you to lose him, but there must be several Vanarama National and league clubs looking at him right now. I was also really impressed with the left back (or should that be left wing back?) Nathan Green, I saw him play as a youngster at Croydon Athletic a few years ago, and he has certainly bulked out since then! He was strong and looked very good coming forward. I personally felt he was the best player on the pitch, easily the man of the match, and am surprised he isn't playing at a higher level. Nathan Ferguson looked comfortable on the ball and had a solid game. I also thought that your keeper, Preston Edwards, did a good job and made some impressive saves.

    Despite how impressive you were going forward, I did feel your defence was prone to lapses in concentration at times. But overall Dulwich looked solid and I am sure they will be up there at the end of the season, I can only hope that Billericay drop a few points along the way. I plan to get along to a home match or two in the new year, as I did really enjoy myself.

    Good luck for the rest of the season, and I look forward to occasionally posting on here when I get along to a few games.

    That was rather pleasing , eased off in the second half though, i thought onovwigun did well in midfield a player we have not really seen much of consistently and i was never sure of his best position although tooting weren't up to much . weathers comical slice with preston scrambling back was totally bizarre . i don't know what the handbags with ming and beanie was all about after the 3 rd goal .

    From what I could make out, the T**ting scum had some rather abrasive chants going on. Mind you, if I was losing 0-3 at home to my team's bitterest rivals, I'd be a bit upset too.

    With whats going on off the pitch we should be making more noise especially when there's 200+ behind goal and gives no excuse not to sing or to sing about 1 or 2 songs each half

    Men against boys in this game really. Tooting can't be faulted for effort, but their defence was all at sea in the first half which was very much when the game was won and lost. Superb first goal from Green, who ripped into the home defence on the left, created a shooting chance for himself out of nothing, and beat the keeper with sheer power. Second came from a comical defensive error as a defender passed straight to Allassani 25 yards out in the centre, and he advanced into the box before squeezing his shot past the keeper. Another Allassani shot from an angle led to a goalmouth scramble for the third with Clunis having a follow up effort blocked before the ball was forced over the line, aparently by Clunis, with Green joining the melee.

    Tooting improved after the interval with their cumbersome number 5 withdrawn and the right back moving into the centre. Even So, it still required two or three fine saves from their keeper to keep the scoreline respectable before they pulled one back with 15 minutes remaining after a wayward backpass instigated a sequence of corners, the third of which was headed in.

    It would have been great to really put them to the sword, but 3-1 was maybe a fair reflection given that Tooting tried to have a go at our defence and could easily have scored at least once in the first half.

    I thought Green had nipped in and scored on the day but the match announcer said Nyren which was confirmed after a few viewings of the DHFCTV replay. His 95th for the Hamlet.

    Yes, the angle at which the ball flew into the net seemed to correspond with Green rushing into the goalmouth. I was also minded to distrust the announcer on the day given his pronunciation of some of our players before kick off: "Singe Ming", "Nyren Cyrus" etc.
