Head Coach – juniors section
With regret Dulwich Cricket Club announces that Graham Clinton is standing down from his position as Head Coach of our juniors section.
I would like to place on record our significant thanks to Graham for all his hard work in the three years he has undertaken this role. Alongside a committed set of age group managers and excellent administrative support, Graham has played a significant role in the recent success and development of the Club’s juniors section. On many occasions Graham has done a significant amount of work above and beyond what the role of Head Coach entailed. With such a large number of people involved and with such a big section it has not been easy and the challenge for the Club is to build on Graham’s work to make DCC Juniors even better.
I will be meeting with Graham, and others closely involved in the section, in the near future to get the process of finding a replacement started and an announcement will be made when we have finalised our plans.

The weekend rounded-up – 12th July
Poor availability across the Senior Men's playing squads led to a disappointing weekend for the majority of the Dulwich sides.
The 4th XI were the only Saturday side to register victory, maintaining top spot in the Premier League. Shahab Khan hit a good 62 in Dulwich's total of 191-8 declared in 45.5 overs versus Sinjun Grammarians at the DSG. A 37 run victory was wrapped up with plenty of overs to spare – David Woods picking up 4-28 with his left-arm twirlers.
Elsewhere, a depleted 1st XI were shot out for 72 at Walton on Thames and were beaten by six wickets. The 2nd XI faired little better against their Walton counterparts, succumbing for 129 and losing by seven wickets at Burbage Road. The 3rd XI also struggled for runs, falling 51 short of Weybridge's 173 after the returning Anthony Dalton had taken 5-43. Back at the DSG, the 5th XI were beaten by 65 runs by BOCA. Away at Old Ethamians, another returning player picked up five wickets - Stan Woolliscroft took 5-33 from nine tidy overs to help restrict the hosts to 199-9 in 35 overs before Dulwich fell 56 runs short in reply.
The late afternoon torrential rain curtailed the Academy's push for a third Surrey Trust league victory at home to Beddington. Zakir Rostami extended his good Sunday form with 52 opening the batting for Euan Johnson's men. Dulwich totalled 168 all out in their 40 overs before the heavens opened at the tea interval.
The Ladies' Super 8s campaign continued with matches against Finchley and St Lawrence & Highcourt. Dulwich made a spirited 67-3 against the former in chase of 102 for victory and were limited to 42 by the latter who won by six wickets.

Men's outdoor nets
Men's outdoor practice is split our practice between two grounds – 1st, 2nd and 3rd XI team players train at the nets at the Dulwich Sports Ground which is in Turney Road at the back of Dulwich’s main ground (entrance by no. 50 Turney Road). The remaining teams train at Dulwich’s main ground off Burbage Road, Dulwich SE24 9HP (entrance by the railway bridge on Burbage Road).
Training takes place on Tuesday evenings starting at 6.30pm, though it is appreciated that not all will be able to make this due to work commitments. Remember, any practice is better than none and attendance at practice does form part of our Selection Policy.
If anyone has any queries about outdoor training then please ask.
