Pink and blue hardcore

Updated: May 10

There’s a great podcast on Dulwich Hamlet, my local non-league side, on the South London Hardcore blog. It’s episode 55, and it’s followed by some great posts with archive pictures from the history of one of the non-league game’s greatest names. The podcast features some atmospheric stuff from a recent home game – these are heady times at a club boasting “the non-league Lionel Messi” and a rumbustious group of Ultras – plus a fascinating and lengthy interview with Hamlet historian Jack McInroy Snr.

The SLHC blog as a whole is also highly recommended. It’s a great example of the kind of quality, niche local media full of character that the internet lends itself too. As former militant north Londoner who now embraces the south as my home, I’ve found it both engaging and invaluable. Plenty here for everyone.
