Met Police hold out to make their point against Ryman Premier new boys

If this was a boxing match, then Dulwich Hamlet would have won on points, but the Met Police defence held firm throughout the game to claim a 0-0 draw.
A healthy Ryman Premier crowd, largely populated by a noisy and jovial Dulwich support, were denied any goals but saw a competitive game between two good sides.
It was almost a game of attack versus defence as the Met lacked any real composure in the final third of the pitch.
The story of the first half were the two good headed chances that fell to former Sutton United man Harry Ottaway but he headed both over the bar when well placed to score.
The best chance of the game came in the second half and fell to the Mets Dave Knight who was put through by a great pass from Steve Sutherland.
He ran through, one on one, with the Dulwich keeper and pushed the ball round him but went too far wide to be able to finish.
No goals and honours even was the final result at Imber Court.
