1919/20 Programmes Surface

Some extremely rare matchday programmes from Dulwich Hamlet’s greatest ever season have just surfaced.  One or two of the nine home programmes are a bit battered but they reveal little tidbits of club history not always found in newspaper reports.

The earliest dates from 15 November 1919, an Isthmian League match with Clapton which Dulwich won 2-1. The last is for the final match against the Civil Service, one which Dulwich Hamlet had to win to secure the League and Cup double.

It was the legendary Edgar Kail that scored that all important goal. 

A more detailed look into the Hamlet's greatest ever season can be found in my little book The Story of a Season: Dulwich Hamlet 1919-20. This book from 1996 is long out of print.
