Our club historian John Lawrence would be the best bet for any further info. I'm not aware of him ever using the messageboard, but you could try writing to him c/o the club if no one else comes up with anything.

There's a regular feature in our match programme "On This Day" which gives details of matches played by the Hamlet on the same day since WW2 including team line-ups and John Hammond's name often pops up in matches from the 60's. There's also periodically a list in our programme of all players who made more than 100 first team appearances since WW2, so I'll check that when I get the chance and
see if John's appearance tally is included. Old team photographs from the same era sometimes get included in the programme too.

It's always interesting when people mention relatives who played for the club in the past. You may find atricles of interest or relevance on this website:

I recall a recent contribution from Geoff Robbins, who played a handful of reserve matches for the Hamlet around 1966. His father, Horace Robbins is one of the clubs genuine all-time greats, one of four men who played in three Hamlet FA Amateur Cup winning sides in the 1930's and the first man to make 500 first team appearances for the club. Geoff recalled a couple of teenaged teammates who briefly played with him in the reserves and who travelled to and from the club with him as they all lived in the Croydon area: Steve Kember & Roy Hodgson!
