Dulwich Hamlet welcomed fans back to Champion Hill in perfect fashion as they continued their excellent recent revival with a 2-1 win over Eastbourne Borough on Tuesday night. 

There was a reduced capacity of 1,078 in East Dulwich – the first time supporters were back in their ground since last March – to watch Gavin Rose’s side make is three wins in a row with nine goals scored, and extend their unbeaten National League South run to five games.

It’s a remarkable resurgence in form after the Hamlet failed to win any of their opening league games of the 2020-21 season.

There was also relief after Dulwich’s previous two homes games had been postponed due to a problem with a floodlight pylon.

Dulwich went 2-0 up against their visitors through Danny Mills and Reise Allassani and a brilliant performance from goalkeeper Charlie Grainger kept the lead intact until deep into added time when James Hammond’s goal proved only a consolation.

The result moved Dulwich up to twelth in the table, just three points off the play-offs.

The Hamlet travel to Oxford City this Saturday, with kick-off at 3pm.
