Plenty of tickets on the gate. It will be rammed, but unlikely to sell out as the KNK is bugger than Champion Hill. There's a car park next to the ground, but that will fill up quickly.

No, they'll be back, but it might take a while.

Thanks. Let's hope it's sooner rather than later.

We're working hard to get back and ensure the club survives and thrives. In the meantime over 1300 tickets sold already for tomorrow's game. Hope loads of people who've not bee able to get to games since the move can get across and cheer the team to promotion.

Oh that is good news, I'm not even much of a football fan, the oval ball being more my thing, but knowing what it means to the fans and community it's very pleasing. Hopefully this is a portent for a win over the greedy bugger developers as well and they can start in the higher echelon back at their rightful home!

Agreed...it's nicely put together. I've just watched it all the way through. Pleased to see the cup - which I didn't see at the game due to the sun being in my eyes. Thanks ruffers.

Good stuff.

Does the DKH stadium and its facilities meet the requirements of the league DH have been promoted to?

Yes, it's fundamentally OK, with a capacity of 3,000, though the club must show the possibility of increasing that in the future to 4,000. Some pitch perimeter fencing changes might be needed though. But nothing fundamental.

Here here!
Well done to Dulwich Hamlet!!
It was an amazing day and one we will never forget.
Im chuffed that we made it all down there

Interesting developments off the field the DHFC football committee chairman has confirmed the following:

From the start of next season, the club will be run on a day to day basis by a new Executive Committee made up of the club's stakeholders from within the club and from local business and the council.
We aim to shortly be able to attract new investment to the club through an issue of new shares. This will make sure the club is on a sound financial footing.

So more council involvement and more money to support the club, which will either dilute or nullify the shares owned by Nick McCormack which are currently 'controlled' by Meadow Residential. We're promised more details soon.

This is very good news in that it suggests the club can get itself onto a firmer financial footing and be immune to Meadow's attempts to destroy it. Although, of course, the ultimate goal is to return to Champion Hill.

Article in Private Eye this week suggests a new planning application has gone in for the ground. Does anyone know anything about this?

No it hasn't. Meadow have sent a "pre-planning" letter to the head of Southwark's regeneration dept. It's a legally meaningless piece of bog paper.

It's a legally meaningless piece of bog paper.

Whilst it's true that there is no legal significance to such a letter, in such a high profile situation as this it is not unusual to try a ranging shot - Southwark will either respond encouraging a formal (and legal) approach on those lines, or will indicate that this will (still) be unlikely to be approved. This is a cost effective method of seeing if they have yet found any areas where agreement might be possible. Southwark will need to respond if it does not want to appear unnecessarily obstructive (which would be a bad message for it if it came to more legal proceedings).

If Southwark did suggest that another approach would at least have a chance of being considered, of course, if the actual legal approach was very different from what was in the 'pre-planning' letter they could still readily turn it back.

There appear to be two key sticking points, the inappropriate use of protected land and the paucity of low cost social housing in the original proposals. Unless these are satisfactorily addressed I cannot see a way through the impasse. I am not sure increasing the housing density to include more social housing works here, if only because the council also has a view about housing density. But at least some attempts to take this forward are being made. It may be of course that this is just a PR exercise - but the issue now has a national profile - and champions at a national level to support the club's needs.
