The Hamlet now head the league table as they thumped basement side Walton Casuals on a day when overnight leaders Maidstone Utd succumbed to Faversham


Pushing forward from the kick off Dulwich were unlucky not to grab the lead in the 8th minute as Erhun Oztumer
found Connor French inside the box and his shot beat Billy Grainger but crashed out off the post. However three minutes later Walton Casuals could have been in front but for two fine stops from Chico Ramos as Dulwich dithered in possession on the edge of the box.

The next chance to come along saw Dulwich grab the lead in the 19th minute as Kevin James played a short corner to Ellis Green who waltzed inside on to his right foot before driving the ball home from the edge of the box.

Four minutes later it was 2-0 as Erhun Oztumer found Dean Lodge and he was crudely upended in the box. Erhun Oztumer duly dispatched the penalty.

On 39 minutes Erhun drifted into the box but this time his effort was just wide, whilst in the last minute of the half Chico Ramos made a fine diving save from a well struck Casuals free kick.

Half Time 2-0.

The second half was only 10 seconds in when Connor French almost extended the lead whilst at the other end a wind assisted corner was headed off the line by Kevin James.

On 53 minutes Xavier Vidal advanced from half way but his thumping shot was blocked by a defender at the expense of a corner.

The third goal that really clinched the points came on 63 minutes as Dean Lodge accelerated past his full back before delivering a cross that cried out to be headed home. Connor French rose to thump a header past the keeper.

On 72 minutes goal number four arrived as a mistake allowed Connor French to go one on one with the keeper and he thumped the ball home.

The fifth goal followed on 76 minutes as Erhun Oztumer was allowed time and space to advance and comfortably fire home from the edge of the box.

Final Score Dulwich Hamlet 5-0 Walton Casuals.
