Hampton & Richmond Borough 0-1 Dulwich Hamlet

3 years ago By Liam Hickey

An 88th minute penalty from Ashley Carew took Dulwich into the 2nd Qualifying Round of the Emirates FA Cup.

In a game of few clear opportunities, it was Dulwich who progressed into the next round after Rhys Murrell-Williamson was brought down in the box 2 minutes from time.

With Danny Waldren suspended & Jacob Erskine not recovered from his injury, Charlie Penny & Calum Willock came into the starting line up.

It was the home side who settled earlier and started on the front foot pressing The Hamlet back. It was 5 minutes before Dulwich threatened as Murrell-Williamson & Hibbert combined on the left before finding Clunis 20 yards out. Brown saved well down low to his right.

The next chance fell to the home side in the 16th minute. The ball in found a forward unmarked at the far post and although the shot beat Wilson, Ethan Pinnock expertly covered behind him.

Calum Willock had a shot on the turn deflected wide before Dulwich passed up a good opportunity in the 27th minute. Murrell-Williamson cut in from the right and, whenter his shot was blocked, it fell to Clunis and his effort looked to be goalbound but struck Willock who was in an offside position.

Dulwich suffered another injury when Clunis limped out but there was some good news in that his replacement was Damian Scannell who was returning from his injury lay off.

Matt Drage was just too high with a 41st minute header from a corner but in stoppage time Hampton had the best chance of the half. A quick break from Case saw him pick out the unmarked Federico but his effort was pushed wide by a fantastic save from Wilson.

Half Time 0-0

Dulwich opened the second half brightly and Mitchell Nelson had an effort blocked after a cross from Scannell but as the half progressed it was Hampton who were in the ascendancy.

Ex Hamlet player Jake Rose saw a shot stopped by Wilson and Diarra headed wide from a corner. For Dulwich there was little to suggest a goal other than two Carew free kicks close to the efge of the penalty area but they didn't trouble Brown.

Hampton's main threat seemed to be Federico on the left and he accelerated clear with 12 minutes left to deliver a cross that Pinnock acrobatically cleared away for a corner.

The game looked to be heading for a replay but with 2 minutes remaining Murrell-Williamson accelerated past Kamara and was brought down by Joe Hicks who was trying to come across to cover.

Ashley Carew converted from the spot sending Brown the wrong way.

Hampton pressed forward but, despite a free kick and a couple of long throws hurled into the box, they were unable to threaten an equaliser.

The game saw the return of Dean McDonald,who was with the club last season, as a 78th minute substitute for Calum Willock.
