The Southwark News Cup – Family Day
The official supporter teams of Fisher Athletic, Dulwich Hamlet, Millwall and Eastbourne Borough will challenge for the Southwark News Cup at Champion Hill Stadium on Sunday 3rd May - KO - 12 Noon.

The new four team tournament, sponsored by local paper The Southwark News, is a joint venture hosted by both Fisher Athletic and Dulwich Hamlet. May 3rd will also be the first annual 'Family Day' at Champion Hill with a Barbecue, Ice Cream Van and Bouncy Castle on offer for younger visitor's as well as over three hours of competitive football !

The Club House bar will also be open for the entire day offering fine views of the playing action!

To add extra spice, Donna Powell, who managed the first team against Eastleigh last month and was the subject of national debate will take charge of the Fisher supporters team aiming to win the trophy. Powell said on the occasion: 'It should be a really good day for everyone after a long hard season and hopefully the sun willbe out as well. I'm always keen to manage any team representing Fisher and I'll do what I can to make sure my team give it a good go and hopefully win the tournament for the Fish!!'

Fisher Chairman Martin Eede told the official website: 'It's a bit of fun after aparticularly tough campaignand I'm sure the players and supporters from all four teams will look forward to the day and enjoy the occasion. It's the least we could do for our fans and maybe Dave (Mehmet) and the players will also come down and switch roles cheering on the supporters for a change. Hopefully if we can encourage local family's to spend the afternoon with us and help produce a really good atmosphere, well that would be even better!'
