U12s win the Harry Bright Cup!

The u12s travelled to Bromley on Sunday to contest the final for the Harry Bright Cup – our first attempt at winning silverware in the North Kent league. We had not really been troubled en route to the final, but the boys knew that Bromley CC, the defending champions, would be difficult opponents.

The weekend rounded up – 2nd September

The curtain came down on the 2017 season this Saturday.

Dulwich 1st XI scrapped their way to survival with a win over Old Rutlishians – whom they relegated in their place. Old Ruts were dismissed for 139, with Will Bancroft snagging five victims behind the stumps. In reply, Dulwich were indebted to Matt Balch, who ground out a three hour, 147 ball 44 not out to see Dulwich home by three wickets in the penultimate over. Full report here. Dulwich finished seventh in Division 2.

The 2nd XI's poor end to the season drew to a conclusion with defeat to their Old Ruts counterparts at Burbage Road. This defeat – and the precluding three from three – meant James Bridgland's men, who hadn't been out of the top two all season, missed promotion to the Premier Division by six points. Saturday's game was a familiar story, with Old Ruts posting 223-9 in their 50 and Dulwich falling 47 runs short in reply - Euan Johnson making 59. Dulwich finished third in Division 1.

A comfortable mid-table spot was already assured for the 3rd XI, but they beat Sutton convincingly by 85 runs to wrap up 2017. John Morris made 66 in Dulwich's 247-5 (50). A sharing a wickets between seven bowlers sealed the win. And the 4th XI confirmed their second place Premier Division finish with a 77 run victory over local rivals Streatham & Marlborough. Ben Lester hit 76 opening the batting for Dulwich and their were, again, plenty of eager, under-used bowlers given a chuck in the second innings. Full report here. Another strong season from Matt Dixon and co – maybe next year will finally be the year…?

There was no 5th or 6th XI action, so an intringing inter-club friendly was setup which The Burbage Bard would love to tell you more about… here.

A full round-up of results is available here, with scorecards and tables on play-cricket.

Dulwich CC honours Peter Rice!

On Thursday 31st August, Dulwich Cricket Club said so-long to one of it's longest-serving and best players.

Peter Rice joined Dulwich in 1958 aged 15, following his dad Eric – another great stalwart of the club. Peter came to the fore in the 60s. He captained the club during one of its most successful periods, in the mid-1970s. He has played every season of cricket at Dulwich over the last 60 years, making more than 1,500 appearances and hitting more than 30,000 runs. 

Rico's great friend David Woods – who has been at Dulwich 51 years himself - brought a Paralytics XI to Burbage Road to pay tribute to Peter, who has finished his playing career at the age of 75. A slightly damp start put paid to any ambitions to play a day-long timed fixture, but enabled an extended, and equally wet, lunch which both sets of players, three generations of the Rice clan and assembled friends of Peter and the Paralytics enjoyed thoroughly.

A t20 fixture got started after the clouds has passed, with the Paralytics winning a tight game by 5 runs. Peter made six and then, in his final-final game on Saturday, hit 34 in the 5th vs 6th XI friendly at the DSG.

Everyone at Dulwich Cricket Club wishes Peter all the best as he moves into retirement and look forward to seeing him around the club for another gin and tonic or two.

More photos from the day will be available in due course and posted here.
