Sat 3rd June – 1st XI v Worcester Park

WORCESTER PARK 174 (49.4) drew with DULWICH 146-9 (50)


Dulwich failed to chase down a target of 174 in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match against Worcester Park, and had to settle for a losing draw.

Dulwich chose to field on winning the toss, and opened the bowling with Jon Lodwick and Tom Savill, who was having his first bowl of the season. Lodwick was first to strike in his fourth over with the score on 15, while Savill bowled an accurate spell of nine overs which conceded just 19 runs. Lodwick gave way to Sam Ellison, who took a wicket in each of his first two overs to reduce Worcester Park to 46-3 in the fifteenth over. Levi Olver also struck in his second over to take the fourth wicket with the score on 66. This brought together identical twins Joe and Rob Hill, who added 32 in 9.2 overs for the fifth wicket until Joe was caught behind for 32 off skipper Alex Gledhill. Skipper Rob was now joined by Waqas Sagar, brother of former Kent and Surrey all-rounder Azhar Mahmood. Sagar dominated a stand of 71 in 14.2 overs for the sixth wicket, scoring 48 off 47 balls before being caught behind off Olver with the score on 169. Mike Arundell fell in the same manner first ball, giving Olver two wickets in his last permitted over for the second week running. Gledhill and Richard King then mopped up the tail, with Rob Hill last man out for 37. Keeper Will Bancroft picked up his fourth catch, while Olver finished with 3-51 off his 14 overs and Gledhill 3-25 off 7.4. The last five wickets had fallen for five runs in 4.4 overs as Worcester Park were dismissed for 174 in the 50th over.

Dulwich thus had 50 overs to get the runs. This was the first Championship match this season in which Savill and his regular opening partner Ed Stolle had played together, and they launched the Dulwich reply in familiar fashion, adding 34 in 7.5 overs before Stolle was caught off Joe Hill for 13. Kristian Williman went in the next over and King one over later to reduce them to 42-3. Savill was joined by Guy Skinner, and both survived some near misses as they found scoring increasingly difficult against accurate bowling. Savill reached his third consecutive fifty but required 74 balls, six more than he had needed to reach his century in the previous match. The stand had reached 63 in 24.1 overs when Savill fell for 58 (off 87 balls) with the score on 105. Skinner went 11 runs later, having grafted resolutely for 30 off 97 balls, and Bancroft followed two runs later to make it 118-6 after 38.3 overs. Lodwick and Ed Hopkins continued to go for the runs and had added 22 in five overs before Hopkins, Ellison and Lodwick all fell in successive overs for just two runs. Dulwich had lost six wickets for 37, and at 142-9 after 45.2 overs Olver and Gledhill now had no alternative but to bat out time, which they did successfully to secure a losing draw.

Dulwich thus ended a disappointing match with just five points and slip two places to seventh. Next week they travel to Chessington, where they have enjoyed a number of close finishes in recent years. Their opponents are just one place below them in the table.








Sat 27th May – 1st XI v Dorking

DORKING 262 (48.4) lost to DULWICH 265-4 (41) by 6 wickets


A sparkling century by Tom Savill enabled Dulwich to chase down a daunting target of 262 with ease in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 clash at Dorking.

The home side chose to take first use of a good batting track with a lightning fast outfield, but Leon Sealy produced a testing opening spell and picked up the first wicket in his third over. With Jon Lodwick feeling unwell and lacking his usual aggression, Sam Ellison replaced him after three overs and dismissed the other opener with his eighth ball without having conceded a run. Jason Swift then joined Cameron Pitt, and together they put on 65 for the third wicket, taking the score to 99 in the 21st over when Levi Olver, in his first game of the season, dismissed Pitt for 33. This was to be the last wicket for 19 overs as Tim Johnson joined Swift in a stand of 116 for the fourth wicket. At 215-3 after 39 overs Dorking seemed well set for a total in excess of 300, but Swift’s dismissal to Ellison for 104 brought about a collapse in which five wickets fell for 29 runs. Ellison also dismissed Johnson for 64 to finish with 3-50 off his ten overs, while the other three fell to Olver with his last ten balls to give him figures of 4-51. The ninth wicket pair added 18 before skipper Alex Gledhill took the last two wickets in four balls to dismiss Dorking for 262 in the 49th over, the last seven wickets having gone down in 9.1 overs for 47 runs.

Savill and Kristian Williman launched the Dulwich reply, with the side facing a target of over 260 for the second week running. But this time there was to be no collapse as Savill ripped into some loose bowling while his partner gave him sensible support at the other end. The innings started in bizarre fashion as three wides in the first five balls saw nine runs on the board before either batsman had scored, and the bowlers continued to gift a succession of wides throughout the innings. The score reached 50 in just 5.4 overs and 100 in 13.2. The stand was finally ended at 141 off the last ball of the 20th over, with Williman falling for 24 while Savill had already reached 89. He managed to avoid 94 (on which score he was dismissed twice last year) by going from 90 to 96 with a single shot, and progressed to his first hundred for the club soon afterwards, off just 68 balls.

Savill had been joined by Guy Skinner, who contributed 19 (off 27 balls) to a stand of 53 in 9.4 overs for the second wicket. Skinner’s dismissal was quickly followed by Ed Hopkins, but Savill continued in imperious fashion in company with Salaar Waqar, until being caught behind with the score on 218. His 135 had come from just 106 balls, and included 20 fours and two sixes. Keeper Will Bancroft joined Waqar and carried on where Savill had left off, racing to 37 at a run a ball and seeing his side to a six wicket victory with nine overs to spare. The number of wides bowled had reached 27, with all eight bowlers bowling at least one. With several of them eluding the keeper, wides contributed 37 runs to an extras total of 43, in sharp contrast to just nine extras in the first innings.

The limited overs games thus finish with Dulwich in fifth place after recording two wins and two defeats. After three successive away matches they return home next week for the first time game, against Worcester Park, who have won three of their four matches and are currently third.


Sat 20th May – 1st XI v Esher

ESHER 268-4 (50) beat DULWICH 181-6 (50) by 87 runs


A depleted Dulwich side were thoroughly outplayed in their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match at Esher, going down to defeat by 87 runs.

With the pitch starting damp and more rain forecast, Alex Gledhill chose to field on winning the toss. Leon Sealy produced an excellent opening spell, taking the first wicket in his second over, and bowling eight overs for just 16 runs. Matt Quaife, promoted to the first team after taking five for the seconds last week, could not repeat the feat, and was replaced for the 12th over by Sam Ellison, who removed the opposing skipper with his first ball and started with three successive maidens. Esher had reached just 38-2 after 16 overs, but Alex Martin and OP Shoaib Khan then launched a counter attack which saw the score start to mount rapidly. The pair had added 196 in 36 overs when Khan ran himself out trying to run a bye to the keeper, having made 88 off 104 balls. Nathan Roberts was promoted in search of quick runs and obliged with 28 off just ten balls, including four huge sixes. Sealy, having conceded just 21 runs off his first nine overs, went for 22 off the last, but was rewarded with the wicket of Roberts, caught on the boundary with two balls to go. Martin finished undefeated on 124, off 143 balls, having been dropped on 0 and 99. Khan had also survived a chance early in his innings, and Dulwich were left to rue their fielding lapses. Esher finished on 268-4 after their 50 overs, having added 78 off the last seven.

Roberts now opened the bowling in partnership with Khurram Irshad. Ed Stolle and Kristian Williman launched their reply without undue alarm, adding 28 together before Williman was caught behind off Roberts off the last ball of the eighth over for 12. Stolle was adjudged lbw for the same score in Roberts’ next over. He followed up with a wicket in each of his next three overs, as Ross Ewing, making his first team debut, Guy Skinner and Will Bancroft managed just 11 runs between them. All three fell to stunning catches, in sharp contrast to the first innings. Roberts came off after eight overs with figures of 5-20, having reduced Dulwich from 28-0 to 52-5.

With a win now out of reach, Dulwich’s best hope was to try and reach 150 for a batting point. Stuart Ferguson, making a rare first team appearance, was joined by Salaar Waqar. Spinners Ben Collins and Nick Winder kept them on a tight rein, bowling 20 overs between them for just 46 runs. Nonetheless they advanced steadily towards their target, adding 56 for the sixth wicket in 20 overs before Ferguson was caught off Winder for 28. Ellison joined Waqar and defended resolutely until the spinners completed their spells, but upped the tempo when the quickies returned. The 150 target was reached with 17 balls to spare, and the pair now launched a blitz of their own to add a further 30 runs and garner a second batting point. Ellison, having taken 21 balls to get off the mark, finished with 29 off 44, while Waqar’s excellent unbeaten 64 came off 96 balls and was his maiden half century for the club. Their unbeaten seventh wicket partnership had added 73 in 14.1 overs, to close on 181-6.

Dulwich once again ended a disappointing day with just two points. Next week they will be hoping to put in a better all-round performance when they visit newly promoted Dorking for their third successive away match.

Sat 13th May – 1st XI v Oxted & Limpsfield

DULWICH 195 (50) lost to OXTED & LIMPSFIELD 198-2 (41.1) by 8 wickets


Dulwich travelled to Oxted & Limpsfield for their first game at the ground for many years, but lost their Travelbag Surrey Championship Division 2 match by 8 wickets.

With all four of last week’s first four batsmen missing, Dulwich had a new look top order as they were put in to bat on a damp pitch. Tom Savill returned after missing last week’s match, and he and Oliver Steward withstood the opening attack to put on 30 together in 10.2 overs before Steward fell for a resolute 5, off 34 balls. This brought in Kristian Williman for his first Championship match, and he and Savill both scored freely in adding 84 for the second wicket in 15.3 overs. Williman had reached 39 off 49 balls when he ran himself out going for a third run off a wide, thereby causing consternation for the home scorer whose computer app didn’t seem to be programmed for such an event! Savill followed two overs later, adjudged lbw for 56, having faced 75 balls.

Guy Skinner and Will Bancroft were more circumspect in their approach, adding 25 in 7.3 overs for the fourth wicket. Bancroft’s dismissal then sparked a middle order collapse in which four wickets fell for 11 runs in 5.1 overs. Salaar Waqar and 18 year old Sam Ellison thus came together with the score on 151-7 and ten overs still to bat. The pair added 40 together, with Ellison confirming his promise by making 24 off 33 balls before being caught off the second ball of the last over. Waqar was run out two balls later for 18 and skipper Alex Gledhill was also run out going for an ambitious second run off the last ball. Three wickets had thus fallen in the last over to see Dulwich dismissed for 195, having lost their last nine wickets for 81 runs. This was certainly a disappointing total after being 114-1 in the 26th over, but could also be seen as a good recovery from 151-7.

Dulwich got off to a good start in the field when Jon Lodwick had Stuart Fletcher lbw off the last ball of his second over, but this was to be the last wicket for 35 overs as the second wicket pair added 166. Skipper Simon Jackson showed his class with a cultured 71 off 103 balls before being bowled by Waqar. At the other end Jack Lloyd seemed more vulnerable, with several mishits that just evaded the fielders. But he didn’t give a genuine chance until the match was as good as won, and saw his side home with an undefeated 96 off 123 balls. Lodwick and Waqar both bowled their full ten over entitlement to finish with 1-30 and 1-44 respectively, but only Ellison of the other bowlers was able to summon the necessary control.

Dulwich thus ended a disappointing day with just two points. Next week they will be hoping to put in a better all-round performance when they visit old rivals Esher.

Sat 6th May – 1st XI v Epsom

EPSOM 128 (44.3) lost to DULWICH 129-2 (24.2) by 8 wickets


Dulwich started the new season in Division 2 of the Travelbag Surrey Championship with an emphatic eight wicket victory at home to Epsom.

Dulwich put their opponents in to bat, and gained an immediate reward when Rob Lowe was bowled by Jon Lodwick with the second ball of the match. This was followed by a low catch by Salaar Waqar at second slip off Kamran Munawar and an edge behind off Lodwick, to reduce Epsom to 13-3 in the fifth over. Skipper Will Moore joined the youthful Jake Bird and together they took the score to 47 in the 18th over. Sam Ellison, on his Championship debut for the First XI, then had Moore both bowled and caught behind off the same delivery, and went on to complete an impressive spell of 1-20 off seven overs. Leon Sealy had also entered the attack, and took the next three wickets, finishing with 3-30 off eight overs. Skipper Alex Gledhill replaced Sealy and struck with his first ball to reduce Epsom to 91-8 in the 33rd over. The ninth wicket pair then added 36 in 10.4 overs against the spinners before Gledhill struck again to make it 127-9. Lodwick returned for the next over and required just three balls to wrap up the innings, finishing with 3-24 off 8.3 overs. With bowled taking precedence over caught, keeper Will Bancroft didn’t get the credit for Moore’s wicket, but picked up two other catches and didn’t concede a bye.

Ed Stolle and Nick Hudson launched the Dulwich reply, and put on 53 together in 9.3 overs before both fell in successive overs. Stolle was the first to go, having made 32 off 31 balls, and Hudson went eight runs later for 25, also off 31. This brought together Henry Hazlewood and Richard King, and they saw their side home in an undefeated third wicket partnership of 68 in 13.3 overs. Hazlewood finished with 34 off 46 balls, while King had 35 off 38.

Dulwich thus started their season with 20 points for a win, and will be looking to build on this next week when they travel to Oxted & Limpsfield, who join the Second Division this season after winning promotion from Division 3.
