Dulwich Hamlet fans fired up as show’s contestants try to keep clean sheet

Dulwich Hamlet fans were fired up to see their club on an episode of hit BBC show The Apprentice last week – although the contestants themselves missed the goal on their visit to Champion Hill.

The stadium was one of the venues for Sir Alan Sugar’s challenges, which saw would-be business moguls power-clean businesses for the lowest-price possible.

The group assigned to clean Hamlet’s ground had trouble negotiating a price and also missed out on some key areas to be cleaned as part of the task – an Apprentice own-goal.

Regarding the sub-standard cleaning work done by the apprentices, one Hamlet fan joked on Twitter: “Dulwich will be denied promotion to the Conference South due to the unpainted hazard stripes on those two stairwells you awful b******s.”

Another compared the controversial contestants with Dulwich’s arch-rivals, posting: “Biggest a*******s to visit Champion Hill since Leatherhead in September.”

Even Sir Alan got in on the fun – although his message on Twitter was a little condescending to the club that is currently sitting pretty at the top of the Isthmian Premier League table.

Regarding the price suggested by the hapless cleaners, he said: “£430 – that club don’t pay that for a striker.”

It remains to be seen whether the TV show, which draws an average of over 7m views per episode, will contribute to the ever-growing crowds at Champion Hill each match day.
