Sat 19th May – 1st XI v Oxted & Limpsfield

DULWICH 212 (49.5) lost to OXTED & LIMPSFIELD 214-1 (43.1) by 9 wickets


Dulwich started their first home match of the season in Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship by scoring 212 against Oxted & Limpsfield, but were left watching in frustration as their opponents cruised to victory by nine wickets with almost seven overs to spare.


Dulwich chose to bat, and skipper Ed Stolle led the way. He enjoyed stands of 37 for the first wicket with Kristian Williman, who made 19, and 28 for the second with Nick Hudson, who made 12. This brought in newcomer Matt Marfani for his first team debut, and together the pair added 77 for the third wicket to take the score to 142-2 after 36 overs. Marfani fell to a smart return catch by Ned Lack for 32, and Stolle was stumped off a wide in Lack’s next over, having made 63. Wickets then tumbled steadily, punctuated by some lusty blows by Salaar Waqar, Jon Lodwick and Phil McCormack. The last eight wickets went down for 70 runs to see Dulwich dismissed for 212 off the penultimate ball of their fifty overs.


Dulwich struck back immediately when Lodwick had Mike Adamson caught at gully off the second ball of the innings. But that proved to be the only wicket to fall as skipper Simon Jackson and Jack Lloyd, who had added 166 together in the first game between the sides last season, proceeded to knock off the runs. Lloyd led the way at first, but his captain caught him up in the thirties and reached his fifty first. Six bowlers were tried but were unable to break through as the two batsmen moved neck and neck into the nineties. Jackson reached his century first, to leave Lloyd facing the next over needing three for his hundred with three wanted for victory. The first ball went for four byes to end the match and leave Lloyd stranded on 97.


Dulwich took just three batting points from this game, and find themselves ninth in the table having suffered two defeats and one abandoned match in their first three games. They are level on points with Bank of England, who happen to be next week’s visitors. Dulwich will be looking to avenge their defeats of last season by these opponents.

Sat 5th May – 1st XI v Dorking

DORKING 219-7 (50) beat DULWICH 180 (47.2) by 39 runs


Dulwich started the new season in Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship with a 39 run defeat at Dorking.

The home side chose to bat on a slow pitch. Openers Bradley Erasmus and Tom Lister made a solid start against tight bowling from Jon Lodwick and debutant Phil McCormack, taking the score to 43 after 13 overs. Alex Gledhill and James Bridgland kept them on an even tighter rein, and it was Bridgland who broke through with the score on 66 after 23 overs, taking two wickets in three balls. This brought in Danny Douthwaite, who went on the attack, taking 17 off Salaar Waqar’s first over on his way to 41 off 43 balls. Waqar responded in his second over by having Erasmus lbw for 32, off a painstaking 83 balls, to make it 101-3. Douthwaite fell to Kamran Munawar with the score on 136, whereupon Ben Rogers was joined by Cameron Pitt in a stand of 59 in ten overs for the fifth wicket. Rogers fell for 27 to Gledhill, who took a second wicket three balls later. Kieran Corbitt was run out when both batsmen found themselves at the same end, but some late blows by Pitt, who finished with an unbeaten 47 off just 43 balls, lifted his side to 219 for 7 after their 50 overs. Extras had contributed 37 runs to the total, including 19 scored as wides. Gledhill and Bridgland finished their ten overs with 2-27 and 2-28 respectively, while Lodwick conceded just 22 runs off his ten.

Douthwaite and Corbitt then combined in a hostile opening spell against new skipper Ed Stolle and Nick Hudson. Douthwaite struck in his third over, bowling Stolle for 6, and followed up in his next over by having Ed Hopkins caught in the slips to reduce Dulwich to 16-2. Hudson was then joined by the second debutant, keeper Jonny Evans. Together they added 43 in just 7.2 overs before both fell with the score on 59, Hudson having made 28 (off 40 balls), and Evans 11 off 20. Waqar and Will Bancroft therefore had to consolidate, but gradually upped the tempo, adding 53 together in 16 overs to take Dulwich to 112-4 in the 31st over. Waqar’s dismissal for 30 was soon followed by Bancroft for 22, and Lodwick and McCormack were both bowled without scoring. Dulwich had lost four wickets in five overs for just four runs to make it 116-8 after 36.

Munawar and Gledhill then produced the third good partnership of the innings, adding exactly 50 in eight overs for the ninth wicket. Munawar led the way with some fine strokes, while Gledhill gave solid support before being run out for 11. A breezy knock by Bridgland helped secure a second batting point, before he fell to a sharp one handed catch with the score on 180. Munawar remained unbeaten, having faced 43 balls in making the highest score of the innings with 33.

Dulwich thus take four points from this match, and will be hoping for a better result next week when they visit Worcester Park.




Sat 2nd Sept – 1st XI v Old Rutlishians

OLD RUTLISHIANS 139 (49.5) lost to DULWICH 140-7 (48.5) by 3 wickets


Dulwich travelled to Old Rutlishians for the last match of the season in Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship, knowing that the loser of this match faced almost certain relegation. They emerged triumphant in a low scoring match, securing victory by three wickets in the penultimate over.

Old Ruts chose to bat, but lost their first wicket in the third over when Jon Lodwick had Salman Mohammed caught behind by Will Bancroft. Dan Wood and Rory Pemberton took the score to 44 in the 13th over when the same combination accounted for Pemberton, out for 23 off 35 balls. Lodwick went on to complete his ten over spell with figures of 2-23. Left arm spinner Levi Olver had joined the attack as early as the twelfth over, and his sustained pressure was rewarded when he had Chris Mude caught for a painstaking 2 off 26 balls in the 20th. Wood was now joined by former skipper Joe Riches, called up in desperation for his first match of the season after returning from an overseas secondment. Together they added 31 for the fourth wicket to take the score to 98-3 after 32 overs, seemingly well poised to accelerate the scoring rate.

At this point the wheels came off. Salaar Waqar had joined the attack and obtained prodigious turn from the start. In his fifth over he had Wood stumped for 53, off 77 balls, and four balls later bowled skipper Sonny Cooper for a duck. Olver returned for a second spell and took two wickets with his first three balls, to finish with 3-28 off his ten overs. In his last over Waqar took two wickets in an over for the second time, and completed his ten with the remarkable figures of 4-13. Ruts had lost six wickets in eleven overs for just 17 runs. Last man Alex Barnicott thus joined Riches with the score on 115-9 in the 43rd over, and together they eked out 24 runs for the last wicket before Barnicott was stumped off Pat George from the penultimate ball of the innings, to give Bancroft his fifth dismissal. George, as the third spinner, had maintained the pressure, finishing with the creditable figures of 1-22 off 9.5 overs.

Tom Savill, in his final match for Dulwich, opened the batting with acting skipper Ed Stolle, but was out after facing just four balls, caught off Cooper for 4. This brought in Matt Balch, who was still there at the end of the innings, more than three hours later. The second wicket pair had taken the score to 39 in the eleventh over when Stolle was surprised to be given out caught at slip off the off spin of Barnicott. A second off spinner Richard Woolland now joined the attack, and bowled with unerring accuracy, with only 11 runs coming off his ten overs. Balch defended resolutely against him, while Nick Hudson went on the attack at the other end. The pair had added 35 in 13.3 overs when Hudson was caught off the third off spinner, Ross Trimmings, having made 24 off 30 balls. Waqar went quickly, trying to sweep Woolland, to leave Dulwich on 77-4 after 26 overs.

Balch was now joined by Lodwick. Balch continued to defend against Woolland and Trimmings, while Lodwick attacked the other bowlers. The pair had added 46 for the fifth wicket in 16 overs when Aussie OP Tom Collett had Lodwick caught behind for 30, off 49 balls. Cooper had Bancroft lbw three overs later, and in the next over Ed Hopkins fell to a remarkable running and diving catch by Woolland off Collett. Dulwich had declined from 123-4 to 132-7, leaving eight runs needed for victory off the last 4.3 overs. With nerves jangling, Balch and Munawar inched towards their target until Balch had the reward of hitting the winning run with seven balls to spare. He had faced 147 balls for his 44, a crucial innings in the context of the game.

Dulwich thus climb two places to finish the season in seventh place, while their opponents suffer relegation for the second year in succession. Dulwich will be hoping to recruit some fresh blood over the winter to help launch a successful season under a new captain next year. 

Sat 26th August – 1st XI v Malden Wanderers

MALDEN WANDERERS 299-7 (50) beat DULWICH 112 (32.1) by 187 runs


Dulwich travelled to Malden Wanderers hoping for the win that would ease the threat of relegation from Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship, but another wretched display saw them go down to defeat by the huge margin of 187 runs.

The home side chose to bat, and were lucky not to lose an early wicket as Jon Lodwick repeatedly found the edge of Aussie OP Jacob Wilson’s bat only to see the ball shoot between the slips to the boundary. With a third man posted from his third over onwards he was able to impose some restraint, and after conceding 17 off his first two overs, the remaining eight cost just 19. Nonetheless the 50 came up in the tenth over, and it took the advent of James Bridgland to secure the breakthrough, as he took a wicket in his first over for the fourth time in as many matches for the first team this season. Wickets for Lodwick and skipper Alex Gledhill reduced Malden to 81-3 after 20.2 overs, but this only brought in Will Sabey, who dominated a stand with Wilson that put on 143 for the fourth wicket in 23 overs. Sabey made 92 of these off 85 balls before being bowled by Kamran Munawar. Wilson had by now reached 90, and he continued past his century before also falling to Munawar for 116, off 132 balls. Wilson had been joined by James Wackett, who lived up to his name by smashing 40 off 22 balls, including three sixes off one Gledhill over, before being stumped off the last ball of the innings. This was Munawar’s second wicket of the over, and three wickets in his last ten balls had given him figures of 4-60 off nine overs. Dulwich thus claimed their second bowling point as Malden finished on a mammoth 299-7 off their 50 overs.

Ed Stolle and Matt Balch had advanced the Dulwich innings sedately to 14 after six overs when Michael Cottrell and that man Sabey each took two wickets in his fourth over. This left them reeling on 17-4, coincidentally the same score that they had been reduced to in the first meeting between the sides. A third wicket for Cottrell made it 26-5. Will Bancroft dug in, and helped Stolle double the score before falling in the 15th over with the score on 52, and Stolle himself went five overs later to make it 56-7. He had scored 44 of those runs, off 49 balls, while his first six partners had managed just nine runs between them. The eighth wicket fell at 67, whereupon Gledhill took part in two partnerships that added 45 for the last two wickets. He played second fiddle to Munawar, whose 21 (off 26 balls) was the second highest score of the innings, in a ninth wicket stand of 22, and then added 23 for the last wicket with Bridgland. Cottrell returned to remove the latter for 11 (off 12 balls) and finish with 4-32 off 9.1 overs, while Gledhill remained unbeaten on 14. Dulwich were dismissed in just 32.1 overs for 112.

Dulwich thus gain just two points from a match for the third week running, and have slipped back to ninth place after Bank of England secured their fourth consecutive victory. The final match is away to Old Rutlishians, who are just four points above them in eighth place. Victory for Dulwich would secure another year in Division 2, while defeat would almost certainly lead to relegation.

Sat 19th August – 1st XI v Bank of England

BANK OF ENGLAND 233-6 (50) beat DULWICH 153 (42.1) by 80 runs


A depleted Dulwich side were thoroughly outplayed in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match against Bank of England, going down to defeat by 80 runs.

Dulwich gave their opponents first use of a good batting pitch, only to see them get off to a flying start as 21 runs came off the first two overs from Jon Lodwick and Kamran Munawar. It was Munawar who made the breakthrough in his second over, dismissing Charlie O’Brien, who had made 23 off 16 balls, with the score on 29 after just 3.2 overs. Fellow opener Sam Brandon scored the next eleven runs before also falling to Munawar for 15, off 19 balls, in the eighth over with the score on 40. Damon Ridgway and skipper Richard Rawlings now consolidated as the bowling tightened, and the 50 did not come up until the 13th over, but they gradually increased the tempo. With several spin bowling regulars unavailable, former captain Graeme Hough returned to the first team for the first time since 2007, and got off to a good start by conceding just nine runs off his first six overs. But he then came in for some stick as Rawlings went on the rampage, with 35 coming off his last four.

The pair had added 133 for the third wicket off 34.3 overs when both fell in successive overs. Rawlings was the first to go, brilliantly caught by Ross Ewing off Lodwick for 72, off 98 balls. Ridgway, who had taken 21 balls to get off the mark, succumbed to a juggling catch on the boundary by Assan Crawford-Khan off skipper Alex Gledhill for 71, off 124 balls, with the score on 192 in the 43rd over. The next few batsmen tried to push the score along in the remaining seven overs, resulting in a wicket apiece for Crawford-Khan and Munawar, who returned to finish with 3-43 off his ten overs. A brief cameo by Ed Jones, who hit an unbeaten 18 off 11 balls, saw his side to 233-6 after their 50 overs.

The Dulwich reply got off to a disastrous start when Ed Stolle was out lbw to the second ball of the innings. Matt Balch and Kristian Williman then raised hopes by adding 70 in 18 overs for the second wicket, before both fell in the same over. Balch was first to go, caught at midwicket after making 26 off 52 balls. Off the next legitimate ball both batsmen found themselves at the same end, with Williman run out for 34, off 58 balls. Ewing provided a quick 16 off 14 balls, but was the next to go with the score on 92, after 23 overs. Lodwick, with 19 off 40 balls, also kept the score moving, but was the first of five wickets that fell as Dulwich declined from 113-4 to 127-9 in the space of seven overs. It took a last wicket stand of 26 between Munawar, who finished unbeaten with 22 off 26 balls, and Hough to lift the score past 150 and gain a batting point that could prove to be vital at the end of the season. Hough became the fourth lbw of the innings, having made 9 off 15 balls, as Dulwich were dismissed for 153 off the first ball of the 43rd over.

Dulwich gained just two points from a disappointing match and slip one place to eighth, just 11 points ahead of Epsom and 13 above Bank of England, whose third successive win has given them an unexpected chance of survival. Next week Dulwich travel to Malden Wanderers, who are currently fifth. Dulwich will be looking for the vital win that will steer them away from the threat of relegation.
