Dulwich Hamlet before the Isthmian League

Dulwich Hamlet joined the Isthmian League, currently sponsored by Ryman, at the commencement of the 1907/08 season. And they have remained there ever since. 

A season by season record can be found at the Dulwich Hamlet page of the Football Club History Database. 

The club has had some ups and downs along the way, and even a re-election, but it is still there in the Isthmian Premier League. However, that could well change in the next year or two if the team under the direction of Gavin Rose continues its rise.

The following lists the club's earliest movements in the local leagues and the various successes it achieved.
