Dulwich Hamlet are out of the FA Cup after they lost 4-1 to Carlisle United at Champion Hill on Friday night. 

Olufela Olomola put the League Two visitors ahead in the eighth minute and Harry McKirdy doubled the advantage eight minutes before half-time.

Champion Hill roared into life when Christian Smith headed home Jeffrey Monakana’s free-kick four minutes after half-time.

But Michael Jones fired into the top corner in the 55th minute before McKirdy sealed the win with four minutes left.

Carlisle boss Steven Pressley said: “We can’t take away from Dulwich, they were everything and more than we expected. It took a big goal from Mike to settle us back down.

Dulwich boss Gavin Rose said: “I will learn something from it and I hope the boys learn from it as well.”
