Position available: Juniors Head Coach
After three years in the role Graham Clinton is moving to pastures new so we are in the process of recruiting his replacement to oversee the coaching of our large and thriving Junior Section. This is a fantastic opportunity for someone with previous experience of such a role, or someone looking to take a further step in their cricket coaching career. For further information on the role and how to apply please click here.
Dulwich Cricket Club’s Junior Section comprises approximately 350 boys and girls ranging from Under 6 to Under 15 age groups. A full coaching programme across all age groups takes place between the end of April and July alongside league and friendly matches for all age groups. There is also opportunity for involvement in the Club’s winter coaching programme.
For someone looking for a challenge and with the necessary organisational and communication skills alongside their coaching skills this represents a real opportunity.
The weekend rounded-up – 23rd August
A tough weekend at the office for Dulwich's cricketers, with five defeats on Saturday and a tight reversal in an important youth game on Sunday.
The 1st XI travelled to league leaders Ashtead, where the home side amassed a big 311-8 in their 50 overs. Salaar Waqar picked up 4-75 in 10 overs of off-spin and Ed Stolle took the prize wicket of Surrey batsman Dominic Sibley for 96. In reply, Stuart Ferguson hit 85 off 98 balls but Dulwich slipped to a heavy 142 run defeat. The side’s Division 2 status is now secure for another season, however.
At Burbage Road the 2nd XI hosted their Ashtead counterparts. Chris Ford’s magnificent season continued as he hit 64 in Dulwich’s 214-7 in 50 overs. Ford now has 442 2nd XI runs at 49.11. A splattering of rain conspired to help Dulwich to defeat during the visitor’s innings, as their target was reduced to 146 in 34 overs – which they achieved with seven wickets and a couple of overs to spare.
The 3rd XI were on the road and made first use of the pitch at Sutton, making 243 all out in 48 overs – Oliver Steward returning to the team with 69. A tight chase was completed in near darkness, with Sutton sneaking victory by two wickets in the final over.
The 4th XI will have to wait another week to try and secure the Premier League title after losing to Guildford at the DSG by 46 runs and the 5th XI look like taking their battle against relegation to the wire after a 33 run defeat at OD Cuaco. The 6th XI game was called off with not enough Dulwich players available.
Sunday saw the Academy’s play-offf clash with Guildford at Burbage Road. Euan Johnson’s men had qualified without defeat, but came unstuck against the strong visitors. Guildford batted first and were restricted to 144-9 in 40 overs thanks to some tight bowling from the Dulwich bowlers – with none of them going for more than 30 runs in each of their eight overs. The Dulwich reply was a tense one but, with three runs outs, the home side were 14 runs short of victory when the final wicket fell.
