After last week's full house of victory, Saturday produced another fine set of results for the club with five of the six men's senior sides recording victory.
The 1st XI were the only side not to record back-to-back victories after they were beaten by 79 runs on the road against a strong Camberley team. Chasing 287 in 50 overs for victory Ed Stolle contributed 63 from 83 balls at the top of the order. Full report here.
There was a nail-biting finish to a low-scoring affair at Burbage Road where the 2nd XI hosted Oxted and Limspfield. The visitors batted first and crawled to 115 all out in 47.3 overs – Stuart Ferguson bowling tidy figures of 10-4-11-2. In response Dulwich found themselves in trouble at 86-8 before skipper James Bridgland and Matt Quaife eeked them to a two wicket win in 46 overs. Full report here.
Under 12B - Dulwich 268 for 7 defeated Beddington 230 for 9
What a beautiful way to start the season – glorious weather at the very picturesque Beddington ground. Captain Danny lost the toss and in we went to bat. Finlay and Felix got is off to a strong start with 19 runs from the first 4 overs. Dan Rawkins in his first game for the club and William did well adding another 10 with only one wicket lost. Beddington were bowling well but we were building a decent score. Elliott and Matt added another 2 – ok but we needed a few more. Jo Jo and Lucas N then put on 19 valuable runs, Lucas playing some great shots. Danny and Shrey added another 18 with Shrey bagging a 5 with 4 overthrows! 268 looked a good score but getable on a small ground. Danny and Elliott opened the bowling with Elliott taking a wicket in his first over. They never really recovered and some great fielding resulted in 6 run outs. Danny and Jo Jo also took a wicket. Everyone bowled well with Lucas gaining a yard of pace from last season. The boys enjoyed the day with the game played in the right spirit.
Under 11 Girls
Elswhere the U11 Girls won their first two Smash It games against Reigate by 25 runs and Pyrford by 31 runs. It was a very enjoyable day for the girls in the sunshine and delightful Reigate ground. The matches were played in a tremendous spirit with much eating of cake (we have three intervals). A special mention to Souraya and Teya for their batting in the Reigate match hitting 4 4s in 2 overs – a feat no other pair came close to matching in 6 innings. The girls all executed their skills well.
Please note that due to the wet weather training tonight (Tuesday 10th May) is cancelled.
After a wet pre-season, the 2016 Travelbag Surrey Championship got underway in glorious sunshine this weekend. All of Dulwich's senior men's side won their Saturday fixtures on a fantastic day for the club.
The 1st XI welcomed Egham to Burbage Road for their opening Division 2 encounter. Wet weather meant the Burbage Road pitch hadn't seen any action in pre-season, so there were certainly a few questions about how it would play. In the event, a low scoring contest was won by new skipper Alex Gledhill's men.
