Dulwich Supporters ‘A’ 6 Hitchin Supporters ‘A’ 1

Dulwich cruised to a convincing victory over their Hertfordshire rivals. Danny King led the way with two goals, ably abetted by strikes from his brother Andy, Dean Branson, Jamie Wyatt and Nick Quilter. The supporters took the lead in the first half when Jamie smashed home the ball following a 1-2 with Dean on the edge of the box. The lead was doubled before half-time as Andy King fired home a 35 yard screamer. In the second half the opposition were comprehensively finished off. First Danny finished off a loose ball as Hitchin failed to clear their lines, then he lobbed the keeper from the edge of the box for number four. Nick got his name on the scoresheet as he steamed in to smash the ball from the edge of the box, following a neat interchange of between Dean and Mark Eldridge on the right. Substitute Lawrence Marsh was unlucky not to find the net when, after a storming run down the wing, his lob over the keeper’s despairing grasp came back of the crossbar. Fortunately Dean was on hand to knock it home. Hitchin gained a late consolation when Dulwich failed to clear a corner, but the result means the Canary Cup must remain in SE22.

Team: Matt Hammond, Danny King, Andy King, Dean Branson, Jack McInroy, Mark Eldridge, Ian Wright, Steve Rickerby, Steve Bennett, Russell Levy, Lawrence Marsh, Jamie Wyatt, Nick Quilter.
