Spurs travelled to South London again to play National League side Dulwich Hamlet (which I understand was another club that Wayne Burnett has managed). Having drawn 2-2 at Ebbsfleet last week, Spurs were looking to build on that result. The weather was sunny and warm after overnight rain. The imporoved weather helped to boost the crowd. Due to problems in getting to the ground I arrived late but managed to sneak into the boardroom to get a good view.

Spurs lined up with triallist Smith again in goal behind Okedina and Dinzeyi with Statham at right back and Hinds on the left. Oakley-Boothe anchored the midfield with Shashoua and Maghoma ahead of him. They were flanked by Tracey on the right and Clarke on the left in support of Sterling up front. Academy players Asante and Binks had been added to the bench.

I missed most of the first half so have had to use other sources to compile what I missed. Spurs attacked the North end in an open first half which saw Maghoma have an early chance and Clarke head wide, while Monlouis had an effort blocked and Smith saved a Chapman free kick. When Mills had an effort blocked Spurs countered and Maghoma fired wide from Stathams cross.

The home side took the lead when they moved the ball quickly upfield and Clunis fired home at the far post following a touch by Mills. Sterling drew a save from Edwards having been played in by Maghoma's reverse pass before Monakana cut inside to fire just wide. Monlouis hit a low shot through a crowd of players and saw the ball come back off the inside of the left post and cleared five minutes before the break.

Spurs made three changes for the second half with Binks coming on for Statham to partner Dinzeyi at the back while Okedina moved to right back. Markanday replaced Tracey on the right flank while Richards took over from Clarke on the left. Inside five minutes Hinds got down the left where Richards squared the ball for Markanday to drive and hit the same post as Dulwich Hamlet had in the first half.

Spurs seemed to up the pace in this half which saw the home side respond in a more physical way trying to get to the ball first. Markanday got down the right and whipped the ball across to give Sterling a chance. He missed that one but drew a save a minute later. Monakana got through to fire wide before Oluwayemi replaced Smith in goal.

Mills fired over when played in by Monlouis and Clunis also shot over. Dulwich made their first changes taking off Ijaha who had clashed twice with Spurs players just previously.

Spurs got back on level terms when Markanday got down the right and cut inside to shoot. His effort was blocked but fell kindly for Oakley-Boothe to find the top corner at the keeper's near post. With that goal Spurs made their last two changes with Asante replacing Sterling up front and Thorpe taking Maghoma's midfield slot.

Markanday squared the ball to Shashoua to drive from the edge of the area to beat the keeper but not Taylor who was on the line. Spurs were looking good at this time and Thorpe played in Markanday to fire wide. Richards was booked for a late challenge before Oluwayemi conceded a penalty as Yusuff broke clear. Smith took the kick and thankfully for the keeper hit it over the bar. Yusuff got through again but this time Oluwayemi saved.

With time ticking away Spurs looked for a winner and Edwards saved from Shashoua. In added time Edwards fluffed a catch from a corner but was relieved to see the ball drop just wide of his near post.

This was another good performance for the Development side with their second draw. Dulwich were more physical than Ebbsfleet last week and the players' temperament was tested. They came through well but know that they can not always put a foot on the ball. Their passing and overall play was better, due no doubt to that extra week's training. The next friendly for the "Spurs XI" will be against Enfield Town on the 31st July, before the season starts next month.
