Non-league round-up: Dulwich hit woodwork twice in draw while Terrors slip up against Leiston

By Richard Cawley

Dulwich Hamlet drew 0-0 at Wingate & Finchley on Saturday – but hit the woodwork twice.

Nathan Ferguson’s cross was missed by Muhammadu Faal only to come off the post after Wingate keeper Shane Gore also misjudged the flight.

Reise Allassani and Nyren Clunis both went close for the visitors before the interval.

Dulwich had the best two openings of an uninspiring second period. Ferguson struck the frame of the goal in the 58th minute while substitute Rickie Hayles headed Ashley Carew’s free-kick wide.

Hamlet have not won in the Bostik League Premier Division since January 6 but have collected three successive draws. They are third in the standings and still look hot favourites to cement a play-off place.

Dulwich are at home to Tonbridge Angels on Saturday.

Tooting & Mitcham were beaten 2-0 at home by Leiston.

Tom Bullard netted on the stroke of half-time at the KNK Stadium with Jack Ainsley making sure of the outcome with an 82nd minute penalty.

It ended a five-match unbeaten streak for the Terrors in the Bostik League Premier Division.

Winger Victor Lazzari has been released after failing to secure a regular place in the Tooting squad. Conrad Lucan, a recent addition to the squad, has joined Egham Town on dual registration forms.

Dan Clements, who suffered a knee injury at the start of the year, is expected to be back in training this week.

Fisher’s hopes of an instant return to the SCEFL Premier Division are improving after a 3-0 success over Meridian VP on Saturday.

Ritchie Hammill, Mathieu Ramsamy and Luke Haidarovic all netted inside the opening 40 minutes.

Fisher are third in the Division One table. Although they have a match in hand on the top two, they are 11 points behind second-placed Punjab United and trail leaders K Sports by 12 points.

AFC Croydon Athletic won 2-0 at Chatham Town on Saturday in the Premier Division. Emanuel Oloyede and Luis Medina hit the back of the net.

Croydon picked up victory by the same margin at home to Beckenham Town with Matt O’Donaghue and Lauris Chin netting either side of the break.
