Invicta return to the road on Saturday as we travel to South London to visit Dulwich Hamlet.
From The Managers
Player-coach Andy Drury spoke ahead of taking charge of the team on Saturday:
“It’s obviously been a turbulent few days at the club. Mev & Edgy have both been great servants to the club and are good people who have worked extremely hard
Looking toward Saturday we are coming off 2 home games where we picked up 4 points and we are looking to build on that. We come into the game with a bit of confidence and with nothing to lose in front of a big crowd at Champion Hill.”
Nobody will forget our last trip to Champion Hill as 10-man Invicta pulled off a 1-0 win over the National League South side last season.
With Nathan Green picking up 2 yellow card in the first half, James Rogers filled in at left back as Invicta went on to take a lead early in the second half through former Dulwich man Ade Yusuff. The 10 men held on to reach the 4th Qualifying Round of the FA Cup.
Previous to that win Invicta’s record against the Hamlet is not good, with just 1 point from 7 games home and away. Our last league visit was a thrilling 4-3 defeat in January 2018, not long before Dulwich were forced to vacate their home, finishing the season at Imperial Fields where they won a playoff final shootout with Hendon to win promotion to the National League South.
Dulwich haven’t found their return to the Isthmian Premier Division easy and currently sit 16th with 16 points from 14 games.
The familiar face of Luke Wanadio awaits us as the Hamlet’s top scorer with 7 goals so far this season.
Always check rail times/strike action before you travel.
East Dulwich is the closest station to Champion Hill, a 5 minute walk to the ground. Denmark Hill is also an option by train and is 15 minutes from the ground.
With a big crowd expected tomorrow we strongly advise purchasing tickets in advance, both to ensure quick entry and to avoid any disappointment should there be a repeat of last week’s sell out. You can purchase tickets online here
