Dulwich strolled to a victory even more emphatic than the scoreline suggests & will face Greenwich Borough in the next round.

This was a game as one-sided as any seen for some time and was effectively over within the first 10 minutes. Ex Hamlet player Jamie Mascoll sliced a free kick from Kadell Daniel just over his own bar in the 4th minute and, from the resulting corner, Grays failed to properly clear their lines and Ibrahim Kargbo fired the ball into the keeper's top right corner from the edge of the penalty area.

The lead was doubled just 5 minutes later when the Grays defence presented the ball to Alex Teniola some 25 yards out and he unerringly picked out the keeper's bottom left corner,

Grays did have a chance to reduce the arrears in the 16th minute but, with a clear sight of goal, Etienne Mukanya Kabobola screwed his shot well wide.

The siege of the Grays goal soon resumed and Nyren Clunis was inches wide with a shot across the goal after he broke free on the left, although if he had looked up he would have found Alex Teniola in acres of space in front of goal.

Nathan Green then had an effort blocked from a Clunis cross whilst Matt Drage had an effort just wide after he had carried the ball forward from the half way line.

Clunis & Teniola had efforts that went close whilst the latter saw an effort blocked by the keeper's legs when sent through by Clunis.

As half time approached, Nathan Green went on a barnstorming run down the left and, after cutting inside, his effort was kicked off the line.

The half ended on a sour note when Ibrahim Kargbo had to be taken off on a stretcher after he made a challenge.

Half Time 2-0

The second half continued much as the first; Nyren Clunis just failing to get his head on a cross to the far post. Therefore it was no surprise when Dulwich added a third in the 52nd minute.

Kadell Daniel struck a free kick that Kharshiladze in the visitors goal could only push into the path of Clunis who buried the rebound.

Dulwich introduced Gavin Tomlin and new signing Kieran Allen-Djilali and it was the latter who set up Tomlin for an effort that was blocked. Allen-Djilali then tried his luck but his effort was just wide.

Matt Drage had an effort disallowed for offside but Dulwich then added a fourth with 10 minutes remaining. Green went on another driving run down the left &, when his cross cum shot was pushed out to the edge of the penalty area, Ashley Carew took aim and drilled his effort into the bottom corner.

Kadell Daniel had an effort just off target before Nyren Clunis missed a golden opportunity to make it five. Gavin Tomlin pulled the ball down with one touch and laid it to Kadell Daniel. He rolled a pass across to the unmarked Clunis, no more than ten yards out, but he somehow put the ball wide.

Final Score 4-0
