We’ll start pre-season with a friendly on Saturday 2nd July against a side we haven’t faced before in Little Common of the Southern Combination at a neutral venue to be confirmed. Following that we’ll host Lewes on Monday 4th July at our new home, Chatham Town’s Bauvill Stadium, and then take on long-term friends at Forest Hill Park on Saturday 9th. A Dulwich Hamlet XI will travel to our new venue at Chatham on the evening of Monday 11th July, before successive away trips with our traditional annual friendly v Greenways on Saturday 16th and then we “travel” to our “away” friendly with Chatham Town on Tuesday 19th. Next up, Kings Hill of the Kent County Premier Division on Saturday 23rd before the annual pre-season finale of the “Joe Ford Cup” against our old groundshare rivals Sporting Club Thamesmead on Tuesday 26th July, raising money in support of the Ford family – the late Martin Ford and his son former Sporting Club Thamesmead manager, and now Welling Town Head Coach, Joe Ford – a worthy cause.
Our league campaign for the new 2022/23 SCEFL Premier Divison will start on Saturday 30th July with opponents as yet unknown. League fixtures are expected in the second week of July. Our FA Cup and FA Vase entries are expected to be confirmed around the same time, with the FA Cup first up with the opening tie on Saturday 6th August.
