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.
