The weekend rounded-up – 18th June

There was some good, welcome cricket this weekend after a damp week – with highlights being a top-of-the-table victory for the 2nd XI and a return to winning ways for the 4th XI.

Firstly, the 1st XI were squeezed out in their fixture with Chessington by the narrowest of margins. Defending 116, Levi Olver picked 4-37 with his left-arm spin but, despite their best efforts, Alex Gledhill's men went down by 1 wicket. Full report here.

The 2nd XI completed three weeks on the road with an important 5 wicket victory at Cranleigh to overtake them at the summit of Divison 2. 4-38 from Stuart Ferguson largely contributed to Cranleigh's dismissal for 181. Raj Tulsiani (57) smashed his third fifty of the season in Dulwich's successful chase. Full report here.

A run of six straight wins came to a halt for the 3rd XI at Reigate Priory. Chris Stone made 56 in the losing draw. Full report here. Back at home, the 4th XI beat their Reigate counterparts by 5 wickets as they passed the visitor's 129 with Guy Woodgate contributing 56. Full report here.

Also in the runs was Alex Irvine for the 5th XI, but his 56 was the only score of note in his side's 131-9, which opponents Blackheath overcame just with three wickets and eight balls remaining. The 6th XI's fixture was victim to the weather. The 7th XI lost the Bank of England by 8 wickets in a friendly.

On Sunday the Development XI made it three wins in three in a low-scoring contest with Franklin Lewin. Full report here.

The weekend rounded-up – 11th June

Overcoming the elements, two big wins and a wheeze over the line cemented Dulwich 1st, 2nd and 3rd XI’s positions towards the top of their respective divisions.

The 1st XI enjoyed a big 114 run victory over Purley. In a game reduced rain, Ed Towner scored an excellent 69 in Dulwich’s 213-7 (40). Purley had 30 overs to respond, but were quickly dismissed for 99 – Levi Olver clearing up the tail with 4-9. Full report here. Dulwich remain third.

Rain also intervened in the 2nd XI’s trip to Trinity Mid-Whitgiftians, but James Bridgland’s men had enough time and quality to overcome their hosts. Bridgland (4-31) and Matt Quaife (4-49) led with the ball as TMG were removed for 147. Zakir Rostami (52*) and Henry Hazlewood (55*) put on 105 to lead Dulwich to an eight wicket win. Full report here. Dulwich remain second and visit top-of-the-table Cranleigh this Saturday.

A nervy win on the road at Spencer for the 3rd XI saw them maintain top spot in the Premier Division. Spencer were comprehensively bowled out for 102. Dulwich then lost eight wickets making tough work of the chase before sealing victory. Full report here.

The 4th XI’s lean trot continued with another disappointing defeat – this time going down by six wickets to their Spencer counterparts. Full report here. Elsewhere, the 5th and 6th XI games saw some play, but neither survived the heavy rain and both ended in abandonment.

The Development XI were similarly washed out on Sunday, but the Ladies scored a fantastic 106 run win over East Hert – Lyndsay Morton starring with both bat (34*) and ball (4.4-3-1-3). Full report here.

The weekend rounded-up – 4th June

The 2016 season continues with much promise.

Dulwich’s top three sides all won on Saturday and hold third, second and first position in their respective divisions.

The 1st XI overcame Farnham at Burbage Road with Kamran Munawar taking 4-11 on his league debut and Naeem Iqbal also bowling well for 4-23 as the visitors were dismissed for 112. A slight wobble from 62-2 to 71-6 in the chase was overcome for a four wicket victory. Full report here.

James Bridgland took a magnificent 6-19 for the 2nd XI at Beddington as the hosts were shot out for just 77. Raj Tulsiani then smashed 56* to complete a ten wicket annihilation. Full report here. Also on the road, the 3rd XI overcome Malden Wanderers’ 206 by six wickets. Graeme Hough registered 4-45 with his off-spin and John Morris lead Dulwich’s response with the bat, making a fine 76. Full report here.

The 4th XI were disappointed to lose to Banstead at the DSG – Julian Dean hit 52 but there were few contributions down the order as they fell 14 runs short of the visitor’s 146. Full report here. The 5th XI were also overcome by seven wickets against Caribbean Mix. With no league action for the 6th XI, a 7th XI took on Bank of England in friendly match – from which Jim Gibson provides some details here.

On Sunday, exam pressures meant Dad’s Army stepped in to fulfil the Development XI fixture at Leatherhead, with Dulwich’s experienced men just unable to secure victory at the last and the match drawn. Full report here.

And on Tuesday the 1st XI’s T20 campaign to an end with a inhumane 90 run defeat away at Premier League table-toppers Reigate Priory. Batting first, Reigate amassed 175-9 with James Bridgland (4-23) continuing his form with the ball. Dulwich made 85 in reply.
