Hussein Hegazi: Dulwich Hamlet’s Egyptian King

Hussein Hegazi: Dulwich Hamlet’s Egyptian King is a new book about the club’s very first African player. Hegazi began his three year career at Champion Hill in 1911 and made a huge impact on all those who saw or played with the footballing wizard.

Before the Egyptian returned to Cairo in 1914 he made a handful of appearances for some of England’s best known amateur sides gaining a Cambridge ‘Blue’ in the  process. Hegazi went on to have a fascinating career in his homeland.

The 144 page book illustrated with some rare photographs, will be available from Wednesday 27 March 2019 priced at only £8.00,

That evening also sees the Football and War seminar staged at Champion Hill from 7:00pm. It is a great honour for Dulwich Hamlet FC to hold this annual event – the first time it will be held outside of Wolverhampton University – so it will be nice to see a large crowd.

The evening’s speakers will include our own Roger Deason and Steve Hunnisett. Entry is free and the clubhouse bar will be open.
