Three goals in the first half hour provided the killer blows as Dulwich busy run started to take its toll

Ryman League Premier Division

The Saturday before last, Dulwich Hamlet lost 3-0 at home to Billericay Town. The Essex side have received a lot of publicity of recently following the arrival of a new owner/manager and several high-profile signings and early on the Hamlet seemed to be somewhat in awe of them, although that the fact it was the fourth game in eight days may have played its part too. Either way, Dulwich found themselves three goals down inside just half-an-hour, which left the side with a mountain to climb. To the players’ credit, they fought back well in the second half but despite plenty of possession they failed to threaten a comeback.

With a strong wind in their favour Billericay pressed from the start and they took the lead in the eighth minute. Quade Taylor and Preston Edwards hesitated in dealing with a high cross from Matthew Johnson from the right and Adam Cunnington nipped into head home. Dulwich retaliated briefly and visiting ‘keeper Alan Julian made a couple of fine saves turning behind a 20 yard freekick from Ashley Carew and later blocking from Gavin Tomlin at point-blank range. But Billericay struck again on 19 minutes when a long throw from Johnson into the goalmouth was headed in by Joe Ellul. Things then went from bad to worse. Ten minutes later, Byron Lawrence got to the line on the left and his shirt cross was netted by Jake Robinson with a stopping header to make it 3-0. Dulwich might have had a penalty in stoppage time at the end of the half when Matt Drage was barged over close to goal, but the referee ruled no foul.

Dulwich enjoyed more of the play after the break. Dipo Akinyemi had a shot charged down, then Dumebi Dumaka fired straight at the ‘keeper from 18 yards. Billericay appeared content to sit back on their led, even more so after the hour mark when substitute Mekhi McLeod was sent off for retaliation. But the Hamlet could get little change out of the strong ‘Ricay central defensive paring of Rob Swaine and Ellul, Dulwich did find the net six minutes from time when Omar Koroma dived forward to head in a cross from Ashley Carew to the back post, but the flag went up for offside and the goal was disallowed. Omar had another clear chance to score just before the end of the contest after Julian parried a shot from Ibra Sekajja, but he delayed a fraction too long allowing a defender to intervene.
