Non-league round-up: Dulwich boss targets loan deals after 5-2 Chatham Town defeat

Dulwich Hamlet boss Hakan Hayrettin wants new additions after a 5-2 defeat at home to Chatham Town on Monday.

Hamlet find themselves 16th in the Isthmian League Premier Division after suffering three defeats from their opening five outings, conceding 13 goals in the process.

Craig Braham-Barrett and Danny Mills scored for Dulwich.

“They need to reflect on what has happened and decide what avenue we’re going to go down,” Hayrettin told Dulwich’s YouTube channel. “I have always said that it’s not going to be plain sailing – there will be plenty of highs and lows.

“We’re going to bring some more players in. We have a hell of a lot of injuries now. All four or five of them would be starting. But that is no excuse for the way we defended and played.

“We will look at the loan market. I’ll speak to the chairman – we need two or three in.”

The South Londoners take on Haringey Borough in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup tomorrow at Champion Hill.

“It’s not a free hit – we need to do well,” said Hayrettin. “Hopefully we can get some injured players back by then.”

Bromley picked up their first win of the National League campaign, a 2-1 victory over Southend United at Hayes Lane on Monday.

Goals from Louis Dennis and Michael Cheek saw the Ravens collect all three points.

“It was gutsy,” Bromley boss Andy Woodman told the South London Press.

“I feel we’re now settling in nicely and showing the DNA that I expect a Bromley and Andy Woodman team to show.”

AFC Croydon Athletic take on Southern League Division One Central side Marlow FC in the first qualifying round of the FA Cup tomorrow.

They beat Horley Town 1-0 in the previous round.

Cray Wanderers will be looking to bounce back in their first FA Cup outing of the season – a clash at home to Newhaven – following a 3-0 Isthmian League Premier Division defeat at Paul Barnes’ Hastings United on Monday.
