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.
