Croydon warmed up for their Ryman League Division One campaign with a 6-0 trouncing of Premier League Dulwich Hamlet on Saturday.

Delicately poised at 0-0 at the break, the match turned on its head following the dismissal of ex Palace junior Andy Cyrus early in the second half. Croydon then seized control of the ill-tempered friendly and ran riot with Barry Ferdinand bagging a hat-trick. The Blues will be hoping to carry their impressive pre-season form over into the first Ryman league match of the season this Saturday at home to Staines.
