The weekend rounded-up – 15th July

Dulwich 1st XI recorded an excellent, morale-boosting victory of league leaders Esher at Burbage Road. Salaar Waqar put in a superb all-round display – his 69 runs was the major contribution in a handy batting display that saw Dulwich post 249-9 in 50 overs. Waqar then turned his attentions to the ball, taking 5-23 off 11.2 overs to dimiss Esher for just 102 in reply. Full report here.

The 2nd XI recorded a second successive losing draw, after being thoroughly out-played away at Guildford. The hosts made a sizeable 299-7 in 48.5 overs. Dulwich's reply never got firing and ended on 206-9 – Oliver Steward making 51. The 3rd XI fixture at Maldern Wanderers followed a similar pattern. Batting first, Malden posted 271-5 in 52.5 overs. Dulwich were then dismissed for 218 to lose out by 53 runs. Full report here.

The title charge suffered a minor blip for the 4th XI after they were unable to dismiss the final Banstead batsman and claim maximum points at the DSG. Dulwich made 168-8 in 47.5 batting first – opern Zeeshan Chaudhry hitting 61. A faltering Banstead tail was rescued by the final pair to restrict Dulwich to the winning draw.

Zachary Wood took 4-46 to help the 5th XI bowl The Roebucks out for 176 – but Dulwich's chase fell 13 runs short in reply. And the 6th XI lost by four wickets away at Bexley.

On Sunday Jonny Stone carried his bat through the Academy's innings, making 67 not out, but Patrick George's men lost out by six runs with a wicket to spare chasing Reigate Priory's 159-7 (40).

Under 13As win league title!

After a number of years seeing this team narrowly miss out on winning the league the boys put together an undefeated season to secure the NEC Division 1 title. Over the course of the season the boys overcame a couple of nervy performances versus Cheam and Trinity Mid Whigiftians to comprehensively beat the other 6 teams in the league. The second last game of the season was against Reigate who also went into that game undefeated with the winner the likely champions. Expecting a tight game we put in our best all-round performance of the season with bat and ball to win comfortably in the end.
Over the season we had a total of 19 boys represent our A team so a great sign of the depth in our age squad as some of the boys start to play for the development squad from next year.

Although a team sport we had some great individual performances this season. With the bat our top run scorers were Henry Swann (251 runs), Jude Hunter (199 runs) and Dan Matthews (126 runs). A notable mention goes to Henry Swann who being dismissed only once this season (boys are required to retire at 30) ended the year with an average of 251 (Don Bradman would be very envious). We had 6 boys score 30’s this year with a combined total of 18 between them. On the bowling front our leading wicket-takers were Elliott Simmonds (13 wickets), Finn Finch (10 wickets) and Akhil Raghavan, Dylan Ross and Dan Matthews (7 wickets apiece). Over 2 weekends Elliott had bolwing figures of 8 overs – 5 maidens – 6 wickets for 6 runs. Fourteen boys shared 75 wickets this year and bowling continues to be our main strength. In the field our regular wicket-keeper Finlay Johnston was very tidy behind the stumps completing the season with a superd stumping in our final match. The pick of our outfielders were Oliver Hamstead and Jo-Jo Harvey.

We had a number of parents assist with umpiring, scoring and providing teas for the boys and I would like to extend my thanks for the continued support of our parents in supporting their boys interest in the game. Thanks to Allen Blackford and the coaching staff for continuing to develop the boys skills and to Tony Simmonds as junior colts co-ordinator who gives up a significant amount of his own time to oversee the running of our junior section which grows from strength to strength each year.

Enjoy the summer.

The weekend rounded-up – 8th July

Dulwich 1st XI suffered a disappointing defeat to fellow Division 2 strugglers Bank of England on Saturday. Dulwich fell 105 runs short of Bank’s 239-9. Full report here.

The 2nd XI escaped with the losing draw points after falling well short of chasing 253 at home to Banstead. Avoiding defeat ensured Dulwich stay ahead of their promotion rivals in second place.

Under 14s through to Surrey Cup Final

Our talented under 14s are through to the final of the NEC Surrey under 14 cup after defeating Cheam on Monday evening following knocking out Spencer and Sutton in previous rounds.

Against Cheam's accurate all pace attack, we were in trouble at 51 for 5. However, Isaac Shaw and Josh Shattock consolidated with an excellent stand, and ultimately we finished our 20 overs on 106 for 6 with Isaac scoring a fabulous 56 not out including 2 mammoth sixes.

We knew that we needed to bowl well in order to defend 106, and this is exactly what we did. Cheam found runs hard to come by against our hostile pace attack, and were only 34 for 1 at the half way stage. Cheam started to play their shots, but we broke through with two wickets in two balls both caught Joseph Lane off Will Gurney-Champion. With the next Cheam batsman bowled by Will and a superb run out by Luke Stylianou the match was all but over, with Cheam ultimately finishing on 94 for 5 after their 20 overs.
