South London Press report that Dulwich Hamlet chairman Ben Clasper has accused some clubs of “subverting” the vote over whether the National League season should be completed.

The Champion Hill outfit issued a statement a week ago saying they would not fulfil their fixtures until the 128-year-old club’s future was not at risk.




Teams in the three divisions are risking expulsion or a points deduction if they do not play, despite the fact that no grants are in place for the second half of the campaign to cover the lack of income from playing in empty stadiums.

The National League South campaign resumed at the weekend but Dulwich have not played since the end of 2020.

Clasper said: “The National League are still offering no solution to the problem. That’s why clubs are saying they are unable to play games and that they are forcing us into debt.

“Clubs are being evaluated by Sport England but it is still thought the likelihood is loans.”
