Dulwich Hamlet closed the gap at the top of the table to two points, with a comfortable 6 – 1 win against Crystal Palace FA on Wednesday afternoon.

Goals from Caio Guimares, Kevin Osei, Thomas Chambers, Javaun Splatt, Ahkeem Belford and Carlos Roman, ensured Dulwich picked up a maximum three points against a struggling Palace side.

A first-half free-kick from Guimares opened the scoring for the away side, in what was a cagey affair in the opening stages of the match.

The initial goal brought the game to life and gave the title chasers the impetus to go and grab two more goals in the first-half. The half ended 3 – 1.

The second-half was more of the same, as Dulwich notched another three goals, which concluded the score line.

The result moves Dulwich within touching distance of top spot, they’re just two points off table-topping Phoenix Sports, with three games to go.

Any minor slip-up for Phoenix could be devastating for their title hopes, as Dulwich are ready to capitalise at any given opportunity.

Junior Kadi, Dulwich manager, gave his thoughts his side’s victory: “I thought Crystal Palace started the match very well and it was an even contest, until Caio opened the scoring.

“Once we got that goal, it allowed us to play some really good football towards the end of the half and score another two”.

“The second-half started a bit bitty, but we managed to add another three goals. It wasn’t the greatest performance in the second, I was happier with the first-half performance from the boys.”

Goalscorer, Guimares, has been featuring with the senior side recently, due to his impressive performances for The Hamlet U19’s.

When asked about Guimares’ development, Kadi said: “I’m very very happy with him, he’s been settling in really well with the men’s side”

It has been the long-term ambition of Kadi’s to get his young players into the senior side.

Given Dulwich’s performances in Division G, it comes as no surprise young players getting their chance to shine at men’s level.

In addition to Guimares’ inclusion in the senior team, U19’s captain Drew Allassani, brother of Dulwich’s forward Reise Allassani, has also been given an opportunity to shine for Gavin Rose’s side.

Whilst, Jay Rich-Baghuelou has been playing regularly for Isthmian South outfit, VCD Athletic.

Elsewhere, Maidstone United Whites won 2 – 1 against a struggling Millwall Lions side.
