Founded in 1893 the South-East London club have established themselves as a highly
regarded and well-respected non-league outlet. They currently play their football in step 3
of the non-league pyramid finishing an admirable 11 th in a tightly contested Isthmian
Premier Division last campaign.

Under the command of former Maidstone manager Hakan Hayrettin The Hamlet portray an
exciting brand of football. A high press and energetic front-line has provided an entertaining
watch for the spectators at Champion Hill over the last season.

With the ambition of returning to the Vanarama National League South, following their
relegation from step 2 in 2023, Hamlet are sure to provide a test for The Wanderers and are
likely to be challenging at the top of the Isthmian Premier next season.

The Hamlet also boast an impressive, loyal, and passionate fanbase who have recognisable
for their pink and blue striped scarves.

So, to all those involved with Dulwich we welcome you to Meadowbank and wish you all the
best this season.

Danny Mills – Croydon born Mills began his career in Croydon Athletic’s youth system. After
a successful stint at Crawley Town the striker earned a fifteen-thousand-pound move to

In 2012, after a plethora of loan moves, Mills signed for Whitehawk where he would play
more than 170 times netting 88 goals for The Hawks.
Hamlet made their move for the 6ft 4in striker in 2019 and what a signing it has proven to
be as Mills has scored 54 goals across his 160 appearances.

Mills was the Hamlet’s top scorer last season, netting thirteen times.

Jordan Wynter – A recent of Hamlet’s signings ahead of the 2024/25 campaign Wynter
brings an abundance of non-league experience with him to Champion Hill.

Wynter started his footballing journey within the youth ranks of Arsenal, and even secured a
first team squad number in 2013. Following his departure from The Gunners the defender
went on to gain first team football at several League Two and National League sides, most
notably turning out for Dartford on over 150 occasions.

Wynter put pen to paper for Dulwich in May of this year and will no doubt be an assured
and reliable part of Hayrettin’s Hamlet side.

Hakan Hayrettin – Hayrettin joined The Hamlet in March 2023 following a successful three-
year tenure at Maidstone United.

Dorking will be all too familiar with Hayrettin as The Wanderers went toe to toe with his
Maidstone side during the 2021/22 season. Although both sides gained promotion to the
national league it was Hayrettin’s Stone that clinched the title.

The Hamlet gaffer secured a mid-table finish last campaign in the Isthmian Premier Division.
Hayrettin’s attacking, high-pressing football will provide a stern test for the Wanderers.

Last Time Out


Monday 2nd May 2022

It is more than fair to say that the last time the two sides met, it was an absolute classic. It
was the Wanderers that came out on top in a game that had just about everything a football
fan could wish for when spectating the game which we all love.

When Darren McQueen slotted home for Dulwich on the 15-minute mark and then Jordan
Green doubled the advantage just seven minutes later it looked like the game had been
taken from The Wanderers before they had the chance to work themselves into the game.
Things got worse for the home side shortly after the break when on the 53 rd minute
McQueen fired home from the spot to extend Hamlet’s advantage to three.

However, in true ‘never write off The Wanderers’ style the game was far from over, and
when Jason Prior headed one back on the hour mark there would have been a few
Wanderers fans who would have felt quietly confident a comeback was on the cards.
A dominant fifteen minutes followed by the 75 th minute Wanderers had drawn themselves
level. A delicate flick from Josh Taylor and powerfully struck volley from Harry Ottaway
allowed Dorking to enter the last ten minutes level after trailing by three after an hour.
When Hamlet’s Giovanni McGregor was dismissed for dissent, the game was there for the
taking for The Wanderers.

Dorking’s resilience paid off as Josh Tylor sealed victory with his second of the game in the
88 th minute, a low driven strike into the bottom right corner.
A comeback typical of the Wanderers and a performance that captured the spirit of a truly
remarkable season.
