Today is the 95th birthday of Dulwich Hamlet’s most elderly supporter Bill Kirby who celebrated by making his usual trip to Champion Hill.
The team he has faithfully supported for eighty three years beat Witham Town 1-0 through a tremendous strike by Xavier Vidal, keeping the team third in the table.
Bill, who still lives locally in Herne Hill, first started watching the Hamlet in the early 1930s during the days of the legendary Edgar Kail. He must surely be one of the last remaining people who actually saw King Edgar play (and could he play).
So, our hearty congratulations to Bill on his birthday, and we trust he may have many more.
