City suffer defeat at Dulwich Hamlet

City suffered a disappointing afternoon in South London today, losing by three goals to nil to Dulwich Hamlet. The hosts got off to a perfect start when Taylor headed home an 8th minute corner. Buoyed by this opening Dulwich continued to enjoy the better of the game and could have been further ahead by the interval but for several smart stops from Ryan Clarke. City’s best chance before the break saw Tom Smith difficult half-volley fail to trouble keeper Grainger. Six minutes into the second half Dulwich increased their lead, McGregor feeding Green to shoot past Clarke from 10 yards. Alex Fletcher had two sights of goal after this, firing over the bar then straight at Grainger, but on 69 minutes McQueen’s close range finish made the game safe for the home side.
