Things might not have gone so well for Dulwich Hamlet on the pitch this season – but off it their fans are keeping the pink and blue colours flying high. 

Dulwich’s 2-1 win over Hemel Hempstead – before the suspension of fixtures to try to slow down the spread of the Covid-19 virus – kept them out of the relegation zone.

That will be the most important result of the season if the football authorities end the campaign and declare current standings the final positions.

There were 2,376 fans at Champion Hill for that game, and the ground is leading the way in National League South for average home attendances.

The Hamlet are the only club in that sixth tier pulling in an average of over 2,000 fans a game. They top that league table, ahead of Maidstone United in second and Havant and Waterlooville in third.

And if the season gets going again, that Champion Hill number will surely shoot up.
