Results Round Up – Saturday 15th January 2022.

The 1st XI’s Match at Ashtead FC was Postponed.


The 2nd XI secured a decent 4 – 3 Win at Colliers Wood Town FC. The Ruts scorers were Kevin Foster (2) Sam Maclean and Paul Whitthread. Foster’s brace helped him secure the MOTM award.


The 3rd XI put in a hardworking shift against high flying Merton Social FC as they lost 3 – 1. Alex Hammond levelled for the OR’s in the first half from a Richard Edmonds Corner. whilst Dan Wallis was the OR’s MOTM.

Injured Manager Christian Cittie stated ‘we battled very hard for 90 minutes and in the final 3rd of the pitch we were lacking creativity and our passing let us down.’


The 4th XI lost 1 – 0 to Real Holmesdale Res FC at Poplar Road, despite creating an abundance of chances, alas the OR’s scoring shooting boots were frustratingly awry.


Best Wishes to the Ruts teams playing tomorrow.

Results Round Up – Saturday 8th January 2022.

The 1st XI and 3rd XI Matches were both postponed.

The 2nd XI put in a terrific shift to secure a 4 – 1 Win over NPL’A’ FC in the League Junior Cup.

The visitors went ahead in the 29th minute, only to see Jake Searles fire a cracking Ruts leveller just 2 minutes later after he neatly controlled an exquisite Kevin Foster pass.

TBH I was cold and wet in the second period and only saw good strikes from Kevin Foster, George Tidey and Paul Whitthread from a distance bolt up the Victory.

A Big Shout out to our very young Keeper Harry Savage for a sterling display which deservedly saw him secure the Ruts MOTM Award.

The light numbered 4th XI suffered a miserable away day at Tooting Bec ‘B’ , as they were blown out of the Cup by talented opposition. Final Score 10 – 0.

The Walking Football Team lost 3 – 0 against Thames FC in the morning.

This was a keenly contested affair, which saw the Ruts concede all of the goals in the latter stages of the Match.

Our Gaffer’s gave Rob Hellewell the MOTM nod for some sterling defending.

No best wishes to our Sunday teams this week, as pretty much most of the fixtures have been decimated by the weather!!

Results Round Up – Saturday 11th December 2021.

Just two poor results to show for our efforts today.

The 1st XI’s recent poor form continued as they slumped to a hefty 5 – 0 defeat at Old Plymouthians.

It was 1 – 0 at the break following a relatively even half. However, an early sin bin in the second half was the catalyst which lead towards a significant collapse, as the Ruts conceded 4 further goals in relatively quick succession.. Let’s hope our return to action in the New Year sees a return to form too!

The 2nd XI and 3rd XI’s did not play today.

The 4th XI went down 4 – 1 to Tolworth Utd, in a rare outing at Poplar Road. Bensalem scored the Ruts consolation, whilst Chris Blenkinsop was MOTM.

Best Wishes to the Ruts Teams playing tomorrow.

Results Round Up – 4th December 2021.

The 1st XI lost 3 – 1 at Home to Selhurst FC today. In reality, the Ruts were very slow out of the blocks and they were duly punished in the 8th and 30th minutes. That said, the OR’s performance was much improved for the remainder of the match thereon, which saw a second half display worthy of securing a point based on chances, although their only reward was Alex Blenkinsop’s goal after a Billy Liffen shot was saved and looped in the air.

The Visitors secured the 3 points, when they added a 3rd goal in injury time. Alex Blenkinsop was the OR’s MOTM.

The 2nd XI drew 0 – 0 with Surrey Casuals FC. Stand in Keeper Paul Tuckey was the OR’s MOTM.

The 3rd XI lost 4 – 1 at Shelton Athletic FC. Dan Wallis scored for the Ruts and Ross Trimmings was MOTM.

The 4th XI also lost 4 – 1, as they went down to Warlingham Reserves FC. Ayoub Fitri scored for the Ruts, whilst Veteran Simon Minihane was MOTM.

Our Walking Football Team were the only Ruts Winners today, as they notched an impressive 7 – 2 Win at Exiles FC. The scorers were Paul Cook (3) which secured him the deserved MOTM nod, plus a brace from Boo (Graham Larcombe) and strikes from Slats (Richard Slatford) & Graham Clayton.

Best Wishes to the Ruts Youth Teams Tomorrow
