RUTH­LESS CLUNIS IS HAM­LET’S GOAL HERO

DUL­WICH HAM­LET 1 ST AL­BANS CITY 0

The Non-League Football Paper - - NATIONAL LEAGUE SOUTH - By John Lawrence

A CRACKER from long­est-serv­ing player Nyren Clunis gave Dul­wich a de­served win over a St Al­bans side who came into the game in fifth place.

Khale Da Costa went close for Saints early on, but Ham­let soon got the mea­sure of their op­po­nents and be­gan to dic­tate the play.

Jay May mis-hit a fine cross from Do­minic Vose, al­low­ing keeper Dean Sned­ker to scoop the ball to safety, but Dul­wich even­tu­ally went ahead in the 27th minute with what proved to be the win­ner.

A neat build-up ended in Jay May play­ing the ball into the in­side-right chan­nel and Clunis fin­ished su­perbly with a mea­sured drive into the far cor­ner.

Min­utes later, Clunis was only inches wide with a shot on the turn from 20 yards.

Dul­wich con­tin­ued to en­joy the bet­ter of the ex­changes in the sec­ond half.

Ash­ley Carew shot wide af­ter be­ing played in by Vose, then Nathan Fer­gu­son beat the div­ing Sned­ker but his shot from 25 yards out hit the in­side of the post.

With Ham­let fail­ing to kill off the game, Saints were en­cour­aged to rally for an equaliser in the clos­ing stages.

They al­most man­aged one nine min­utes from time when Lewis Knight crashed a first-time shot against the post.
