Anyone in said area on June 8 who bought a Euro Millions ticket?
Apparently, the 63.8m prize is still up for grabs.
It goes back in the pot after 11pm on December 5.

Having said that...if it was you, you wouldn't know you had won.

If you had bought them with your set numbers, they could accept a claim, if you can tell them where you bought the ticket...

Maybe I am missing something here, but is there any sort of rivalry between Dulwich Hamlet and Stevenage?
I can't imagine that the two sides have played each other very often.

Stevenage spent many years messing around in the Isthmian League going nowhere, some of us still wonder how come they of all teams made it.

As for the lottery winner, I doubt the person who bought the ticket even remembers doing so. I know it definitely wasn't me coz I don't go out of the house in June.

No rivalry at all. But we we competed in the Isthmian a couple of times in the early nineties, they were most ungratious when we ended their long unbeaten home run...their stewards told us to stop singing, but did nothing about their fans chucking coins at us. One of he few games from thatera that we made sure none of our fans went into the bar (it was a midweek game & dark) & made sure those of us going home by train moved as a group, & didn't get split up! Hence, why Hamlet fans from that era have always referred to them as Scumvenage.

I've often heard them refered too as Sh*tenage, I've only been there once and it all seemed friendly enough on that occasion but there is clearly a lot of ill feeling towards them in non league circles.

Same with me really with Lower Dunstable FC, who laughingly are now a non-League club which befits the ground which has been a shocking heap ever since it was slung up over night.

Still not been claimed, either somebody is playing it very cool or more likely the ticket has been lost forever?

Judging by the report on The One Show last night, the whole report seemed to be filmed in Hitchin, perhaps a hint it was bought there and not Stevenage.

Yep, many a time. In the nineties we were on very good terms with their supporters team, & we clinched promotion there in 1992. I've not really wandered round Stevenage, to be honest, but Hitchin is a nice enough place.

Last time I went to Stevenage was to see a mate in hospital after his ankle was broken in one the Hitchin supporters tournaments.

Believe me...I drank up until 2002. The Hitchin tournament stopped in 2004, so I was drinking up there for ten of them!

I won't regale you with some of the drunken antics up there, some were overnighters!

I kept thinking of this everytime 5Live did a score flash from Carrow Road yesterday - I was willing them to call the visitors "Lower Dunstable"
