A festive card showing the original DHFC crest
It gives us great pleasure to announce that the Hamlet Historian will be setting up a mobile museum in the club boardroom for the afternoon of Saturday 7 May 2016.
At 3 o’clock that day a Dulwich Hamlet XI will play a match against the Dulwich Hamlet Supporters Team. I have played in a couple of these matches myself, the first of which was my debut for the Supporters Team over twenty years ago. I will never forget the game because I had to mark my hero Frank Murphy in the first half and Player of the Year Gary Hewitt in the second half! So put a note in your diary to come along and support this event, and others over the same weekend. Details can be found at the Dulwich Hamlet website.
The boardroom is practically a museum in itself, and the club have graciously allowed us to use it for a couple of hours. If you have not been in there before it will be well worth taking this opportunity to do so. Feel free to come along and say hello and check out some of the artefacts and memorabilia that we hold.
Among the items on display will be one of the legendary EdgarKail’s amateur England caps, Ernie Toser’s Dulwich shirt from 1937, and one of his FA Amateur Cup winner’s medals. The Ernie Toser shirt, which he kept in a drawer for decades, was the prototype for the popular TOFFS retro shirt.
If you have any Hamlet related paraphernalia that you would like to bring along to show us, we would be most pleased to see it.
