With the team running out in a special, one-off purple strip to celebrate International Women’s Day, Dulwich Hamlet tore apart their visitors from Merstham, in a one-sided 5-0 thrashing.
Before the kick off, the Merstham keeper tries to find a way into the mass hug circle.
The traffic was almost entirely one-way, as Hamlet totally dominated the play.
Merstham’s keeper was in for a busy afternoon.
Everyone loves a goalmouth melee.
Hamlet went 1-0 up in the tenth minute, thanks to a Nathan Green strike.
There was another huge crowd of 1,564 at Champion Hill.
I’d like to think that the stripping of the estate agent banner was an act of the Anti Gentrification Gods. Let’s hope they bring their forces of fury to Brixton’s Foxtons ASAP.
Dulwich come close.
Divot of the Day.
Gavin Tomlin makes it 2-0 in the 24th minute.
Gavin Tomlin curled a magnificent free kick into the net to make it 3-0 in the 35th minute.

The day was a bumper one for #nonleaguedogs.
These cheeky laaaads decided to watch the game for free.
Hamlet had a fourth goal disallowed for offside.
Another goalmouth melee saw the ball cross over the line to make it 4-0 to Hamlet.
Not sure what this is.
There aren’t many things more splendid in life than seeing a shredded estate agent’s advert flapping in the breeze.
Children in the trees!
Paying and non paying spectators.

With seven minutes to go, the scoreline was 5-0 to Hamlet, courtesy of a wonderful Panuche Camara strike.
