The 1st XI put in a very decent shift against Farleigh Rovers of the Surrey Premier League in the County Cup yesterday.
Our thanks to Mappy for the goal details below, with some added content from me.
1-1 The Ruts levelled courtesy of an Adam Randall Header, from a Billy Liffen Cross on 15mins
In the second half the Ruts really upped their performances and deservedly levelled via the following,
2-3 – A Fabio Bagulho Penalty, after Alex Blenkinsop was fouled in the Box on 51mins.
3-3 – Blenkinsop then went on a delightful mazy run & finished well from an Alex Curme assist on 65mins.
The OR’s then had several decent ‘one on one’ opportunities to win this cup tie in normal time. However, it was not to be, and a penalty shootout was to prove to be the decisive outcome. Adam Randall and Ashley Daly scored the Ruts first 2 x Pens in the Shootout, before the TEAM were unable to notch thereafter.
Plenty of positives to take for the Ruts performance wise and a massive big shout out to Ruts MOTM Kyle Moore for ‘stepping up and standing in’ in Goal as our regular Keeper Evan Watson had sustained an Training injury earlier in the week.
The 2nd XI had a very competitive friendly against Worcester Park U23’s. The Lads went down 2 – 1, after conceding an early penalty. Liam Washford Bent notched the OR’s Goal.
The 3rd XI lost 3 – 0 to Cheam Village Warriors FC, whilst the 4th XI drew 2 – 2 with Kew Park Rangers Res FC. The Ruts scorers were Bensalim and Hafidi was the Ruts MOTM.
Our Sunday Team sadly had their game abandoned around the hour mark after 2 x serious injuries left no alternative to the Referee. The Ruts were 3 – 0 up at the time, thanks to a brace from debutant Alfie Dulley and a strike from Tom Kearney.The unfortunate Ruts injury was sustained by our Co Manager Sean Thornton.
We wish both Sean and the injured Old Sutts player both full and speedy recoveries.
