PREVIEW | Dulwich Hamlet

Reds travel to Champion Hill Stadium tonight (7-45pm) for friendly

18 July 2017

The pre-season schedule continues this evening as the Reds travel to Dulwich Hamlet for their fourth friendly of the summer.

Saturday saw Head Coach Harry Kewell on the touchline at the Checkatrade Stadium for the first time, as his side drew 1-1 with a Chelsea XI in the first home game of the new season.

With the squad building important match fitness, Tuesday night will be another opportunity for the players to get some more minutes under their belts and impress the new boss.

One who will be looking to impress is summer signing Panutche Camara, who will be returning to the club he signed from.

Camara burst into the first team at Dulwich Hamlet late last season, and the 20-year old’s impressive form earned him a two-year deal with the Reds.

Going the other way last summer, was Gavin Tomlin, who joined the Isthmian League Premier Division club after spending two seasons at the Reds.

Tomlin enjoyed a good debut season with Dulwich, scoring 19 times and helping them to the play-off final.

The Opposition:

Last season Dulwich Hamlet finished 3rd in the Isthmian League Premier Division to book themselves a spot in the play-offs.

The Hamlet brushed aside Enfield Town 4-2 in the semi-finals, however were unable to find a way past Bognor Regis Town in the final, and fell to a 2-1 defeat.

It was the third year in a row the club had reached the play-offs, but failed to gain promotion.

In the 2015/16 season, the club had the highest average attendance in the league, that was double the amount of the team with the second highest.

Dulwich have been recognised in the league for their strong support, and their group of fans that stand behind the goal are known as “The Rabble”.

When and Where?

The game takes place this evening at 7.45pm at the Champion Hill Stadium.
