One of the previous posts mentioned people being locked out. Surely Dulwich need to make games all ticket in which case there would need to offer an allocation to the away team. Plus there would need to be some form of segregation which would seem difficult in the ground as it stands.

They sell tickets online, but for some reason cap that and sell the rest (400 on Saturday) on the day. I don't know if they're trying to be fair to those who don't have access to the internet, but given the likely age of that diminishing cohort neither is making them turn up a couple of hours before KO to get their hands on a ticket with no readmission allowed, or otherwise risk not getting one at all.

I think Champion Hill could teechnically be segregated, as there are two different ways in. It would eat into their capacity a lot though.

The pub was Hooper's (formerly the Ivanhoe) in Ivanhoe Road, sadly closed in December 2012 and converted to housing.

Along with The Wagon & Horses at Halesowen and The Mermaid at St Albans that was one of my favourite pubs on the non league circuit.
I had a couple of celebratory post-match pints at the Mermaid after an epic 4-3 win on Tuesday night. It’s always been a superb pub in the 30 years or so since my first visit.

Fisher are still getting sh!t crowds nowadays at their new home
They’re three divisions lower now and generally get 150-200. That’s very respectable for a mid-table county league side. It’s a very tight ground and there isn’t much scope to improve it to play at a higher level

If you make games all ticket you have to offer the away club 20% of the tickets as per league rules, which in Hamlet's case is about 650 tickets. (It's a lower percentage for FA competition matches.)

There have been three all ticket matches, most recently a televised FA Cup tie against Carlisle two years ago which was segregated mainly to make certain there were no problems in front of the nation's media and all Carlisle's games are segregated anyway. There was a league match in April the previous season against Woking, who were chasing promotion in the penultimate game of the season, which we were advised to segregate due to them having an idiot element but there was still a bar in their section. (They returned some unsold tickets.) There was also a league match against Maidstone in April 2015 when they needed a result to be champions, which sold out, and they were given 900 tickets from a total of 3,000. (Our crowds were mostly around 1,500 at the time.) There was no segregation for that one, no aggro, and the away fans had a "friendly" pitch invasion after the final whistle to celebrate with their players after getting the draw they needed.

When there is segregation the away supporters get the covered terrace plus the open area between there and the corner with the turnstile block. Heras fencing is used to secure the area.
