Dulwich Hamlet Football Club is a football club in south London, England, fielding senior men's and women's sides. The women's team are currently members of and play at Champion Hill.

History[edit]

The men's club was formed in 1893, by Lorraine 'Pa' Wilson. They were founder members of the Dulwich League in 1899, and were its inaugural champions.[2] The club went on to retain the title the following season.[2]

By 2018-2019 the need for the club to field a senior women's side had become apparent. A.F.C. Phoenix, a woman's football team formed less than a mile away in Clapham Common in 2010,[3] had gained significant attention in the local SE London area for a dedicated fanbase, work ethic, and winning promotions in successive seasons.

In summer 2019, the men's club announced a merger with A.F.C. Phoenix, so that the club could field senior men's and women's teams with identical status.[4] The women's team, now known as Dulwich Hamlet F.C. Ladies, play in the London and South East Women's Regional Football League (English Football Tier 5) for 2019–2020,[5] with home matches and training at Champion Hill. Players are semi-professional.
