Action from 1963


In 1963 the Football Association celebrated its centenary. A film was made called 'Home and Away' of the history and spreading of our national game across the world and the influence of the FA.

Part of the film looks at the amateur game, and it is from 7 minutes in that we find some interesting clips taken at Champion Hill. Action on the field is followed by brief scenes on the terraces and in the bar. One of the gentlemen seen is Eddie Rengger, for a number of years the Dulwich Hamlet Secretary. In his younger days Rengger had featured for the club in the victorious 1920 Amateur Cup Final.

Other scenes in the movie may also involve Hamlet players.
