9 months ago By Liam Hickey

Dulwich failed in their bid to reach the Velocity Cup with a defeat on penalties.

This was a game of very few chances, although it was certainly The Hamlet that made all the running and with steadier finishing they could have secured a place in the final.

The match had passages of good play but never really set any pulses racing as Dulwich toiled to make any breakthrough, and the Met POlice looked as if they had settled for penalties long before they arrived.

Dipo Akinyemi had an early effort blocked but it was nearly half an hour in before L|uke Robertson wasted a good chance for The Met when a long throw caused confusion in the Dulwich defence.

Met keeper Luke Williams managed to push a Kenny Beaney effort wide and then just reached a low cross from Akinyemi in front of Muhammadu Faal. Whilst at the other end, an overhit free kick from Tom Bird struck the top of the crossbar.

With half time approaching, nobody was able to get a touch to a Nathan Ferguson free kick and Akinyemi had another effort deflected wide after a good run from Nyren Clunis

Half Time 0-0

The second half was equally bereft of chances and it was Dulwich who had the better of the few created. Dipo Akinyemi saw an effort just pushed wide, and he had an effort blocked on the line after fine wing play from Clunis.

Muhammadu Faal then passed up the best chance of the night, failing to even get a touch to a great cross from the left that begged to be headed home.

As the clock ticked down, Bird had an effort on goal following a quick break but Addai saved easily.

Full Time 0-0

The Met Police put away all their four spot kicks, whilst Kenny Beaney saw his effort saved and Tanasheh Abrahams put his wide, either side of Nathan Ferguson converting his.
As a result, it is The Met who go through to face Billericay Town in the final.
