Hockey: Disappointing England

IN THE Under-18 tournament at Cardiff, an England team largely consisting of players with National League experience were beaten 2-0 by Ireland to finish a disappointing third. The U16s beat the Irish 2- 1, thanks to two goals from their captain, James Southgate, to finish on top.

Hockey: Wimbledon win puts league lead in sight

WIMBLEDON, THE South Premier draw specialists, are just one point behind the league leaders, Fareham, following their 2-0 victory away to the Hampshire club. A David Alford penalty corner after 10 minutes gave Wimbledon the lead with Gareth Nicholls collecting the second 15 minutes into the second half when he deflected a drive into the roof of the net.

MARK PEARN, with two inspirational spells, clinched a place for the defending champions, Reading, in their final game in the National Indoor Club Preliminary round as they beat Old Loughtonians 6-3 at Cocks Moors Woods, Birmingham.

Hockey: Woking keen on another scalp

THERE IS much uncertainty concerning the make-up of the fifth round of the EHA men's and women's cup draws following the postponement of a number of fourth round games. But if replays go according to form, the highlight of the fifth round ties will be the visit of women's Premier League leaders Ipswich to last year's Cup winners, Clifton Scottish Life. First, however, Clifton have to overcome South League leaders Dulwich.

Exactly who is failing whom?

The `failing' label has taken hold in education when it is absent elsewhere. Hospitals are not failed. Nor are prisons, let alone government departments

Hot Spot: Wood Vale, South London - A vale of Victorian value

The south London street answering to the name Wood Vale is a border; in fact a double border. It formally divides the boroughs of Lewisham and Southwark, and it casually separates Dulwich from Forest Hill. It is also the kind of area where one property can be tens of thousands of pounds cheaper than a similar property just one or two streets away.

Your chance to win a meal at Belair House

As a local to the area, English actor Gary Cady had long admired the Georgian Grade II-listed building that went under the name of Belair House in Dulwich, south London. Soon an idea began to form in his mind...

PRIVATE VIEW; Pieter de Hooch Dulwich Picture Gallery

If, like me, you weren't able to see the once-in-a-lifetime Vermeer exhibition in Washington and The Hague a couple of years ago, you'll be fed up hearing how marvellous it was. It was a great shame that it didn't come to this country, but this autumn there's a sort of compensation at Dulwich Picture Gallery, where they are about to open what purports to be the first-ever show of work devoted to Vermeer's contemporary, Pieter de Hooch.

The Duchess of York, the Squatters of Dulwich and Kenneth Branagh

EXCITING times for the Duchess of York. If you've wondered why she's been more ubiquitous than usual in the media world - hanging out with the cast of Friends, flirting with Chris Evans - it's because she is soon to be launched as the hostess of a television chat show. Sky TV have signed her up and, having already pre-sold the show to America, Australia and New Zealand, have made a gratifying amount of cash out of the newly- slender ex-Royal before she utters a single word of the Funny Opening Monologue.
