Dulwich Hamlet: Club Profile
Promoted with us from Diadora League Division One in 1992, we hung out with Dulwich Hamlet for three straight seasons. The Hamlet remained in the Premier Division after we went up in 1994; staying there before relegation took them back to Division One in 2001. In more recent times, the club came back in an upwards direction; promoted to National League South for the first time in 2018.
Off the pitch, however, there was some to-do with their ground for an extended period. In 1991, their Champion Hill ground was demolished on safety grounds – and rebuilt for the start of the 1992-3 campaign. In 2013, it became the first football venue to be listed as an Asset of Community Value. But it lost this status soon after. The ground was then bought in 2014 by a developer, who forced the club out in March 2018.
After much pressure, the Hamlet could go back home in 2018 after sharing with Tooting & Mitcham.

Follow this round to the right as you go through Victoria and then flick left onto Vauxhall Bridge Road.
Go across the river and under the railway bridge, bearing left for the A3204. But it won’t be long until you need to turn right into Durham Street, then left onto Harleyford Road to skirt around The Oval. Keep on this road across the A3 junction until you get to Camberwell.
Turn right onto Camberwell Grove in about 1.6 miles and then right onto Grove Hill Road at the end. Next, it’s a left onto Dog Kennel Hill (A2216). Just 0.1 mile later, it’s right onto Edgar Kail Way. The ground is down here.
Get to the ground in good enough time and you may snare yourself a parking spot. If not, there is apparently plenty of on-streeet parking nearby. Just be on the look-out for parking restrictions that might affect you.
