Crisis-hit Dulwich Hamlet have announced they have agreed to play their home games at Tooting & Mitcham United’s Imperial Fields for the remainder of the season.
The club have made numerous headlines recently as they contend with a long-running dispute with landlords Meadow Residential, who have terminated their licence to play at their Champion Hill home ground. The Bostik Premier high-flyers are desperately trying to secure the club’s future, with ex-England defender Rio Ferdinand notably thwarted in his bid to buy the club earlier this season.
TMUFC chairman Steve Adkins had this to say:
“We are delighted to announce that Tooting and Mitcham United have agreed to host Dulwich Hamlet for their last few games of the season in the event that they are unable to continue playing at Champion Hill. We are pleased to be able to help a fellow club within the Isthmian League.
“This is subject to the League giving their consent. We do very much hope that Dulwich will be able to resolve their issues speedily and we wish the club all the very best in their endeavours.
“This means our game next weekend against Worthing will be played on Sunday, 18th of March. We need help making match days what they used to be, so are appealing for volunteers for the rest of the season, if you can help with any of the following, please email email@example.com.”
