    And would it have an odd name like Runesboo or something?

    Get the feeling that their new manager is fairly crap.

    Can't help feeling that they would have been better off sticks nag with Nicholson.

    Dulwich Hamlet FC
    123 years as a football club.
    4 years being owned by a property developer.
    Now being told to leave the stadium and give up their name.

    I sincerely hope Torquay Council have more to them than Southwark Council seem to have had.

    Seriously depressing to see what's happening to Torquay United at the moment. It would be fantastic to have another local rival Yeovil just don't cut it as a substitute. Hopefully their Trust can wrangle control from the absentee owner somehow, but even in more recent 'good times', that club has struggled for support. Short of a wealthy fan leaving something substantial in their will, I doubt they have the funds to turn things around.

    If the owner did look to relinquish control (if the council hold out, as I hope they continue to), is it possible for our own ST to give a small loan to the Torquay United ST or would that breach the rules on owning more than one football club?

    The thing is with Dulwich, they made an awful lot of assumptions and were apparently FORCED to spend a shedload more than they were bringing in, rather than running within their means and planning for worst case scenarios. It's well known that Southwark Council are a bunch of eejits when it comes to planning.

    Not a chance. We are on the brink of league one football. If we got promoted any available funds I'd rather see go on our own team to try and push for league one stability.

    Rather then giving direct funds, I wouldn't see an issue with loaning some adequate players to help them out on a very reduced cost basis.

    If they helped us when we were in the sh*te we should help them, although to be honest there's little we can do.

    They helped us by playing a pre season friendly, and not claiming any expenses, so I see no reason not to at least offer to visit them for a preseason friendly on the same basis, as well as offering them some of our youngsters on a loan basis next season.
