Dulwich Hamlet 2 Saints 1

The Saints suffered their first defeat of the season against Dulwich Hamlet at Champion Hill on Saturday.

Despite having a man sent just past the half-hour mark for an off the ball incident, Dulwich took the lead through substitute Nyren Clunis.

City rallied and equalised in spectacular fashion when a passing move ended with Sam Merson spinning on the edge of the box and finding Joe Iaciofano, who calmly dinked the ball over the goalkeeper and over the line.

However, despite controlling much of the second half, the Saints suffered a sucker punch with just three minutes left of regular time.

Clunis picked the ball up on the left and looked to curl the ball into the box but it took a heavy deflected off of Merson, who was looking to nod the ball away from danger, and sailed past the stranded Snedker.

Ian Allinson’s men will be looking to bounce back against Braintree Town on Tuesday night at Clarence Park, kick-off 7:45pm.
