Results Round Up – Saturday 26th November 2022.

The 1st XI lost 3 – 2 at Home to Old Boys Clapham FC this afternoon. The Ruts slumped 2 goals behind within 10 minutes of the start! before impressively levelling up by the 20th Minute.

The Ruts 1st goal came in the 11th minute when a Toby Lempriere shot was only half parried by the visiting keeper, and the alert Chris Henry slotted home to reduce the arrears.

The OR’s then levelled with a crisp goal and finish on 20 mins, as Dan Creasey won the ball back before doing a neat ‘one two’ with Sam Leatherby, who set up Adam Randall who swiftly drove goalward before firing home.

Frustratingly, the decisive goal of the match was born from our own undoing on the cusp of halftime, as a reckless challenge gifted the Visitors a Penalty, which they duly converted ultimately securing them the 3 points on the day.

The ‘A’ Team drew 1 – 1 with AFC North Leatherhead. Tony Furneaux scored for the OR’s, whilst Keeper Mike Lowe was MOTM.

The ‘B’ Team hit Dorking Cobblers FC for 6. The Ruts MOTM was Alex Blenkinsop as he smashed in 5 goals, whilst Liam Washford-Bent notched the other Goal.

Best wishes to the Ruts teams playing tomorrow.

Results Round Up – Saturday 12th November 2022.

The 1st XI made hard work of overcoming a decent Junction Elite FC at Poplar Road this afternoon. The final score was 4 – 3 to the OR’s. Our lads created plenty of first half chances, but only managed to capitalise on two.

Our thanks to Manager Mappy for the timings/details of the Ruts Goals.

1-0 on 16 mins a Kyle Moore drive out of defence saw him put a lovely through ball to Billy Liffen who rounded the Keeper to slot home.

1-1 on 23mins

2-1 on 30 mins – (Mappy and I missed this as we were calming down a hot-headed Will!) Details of the Goal = An Adam Randall header!

2-2 – 45 mins – Oppo equalise via a penalty. Do not talk to Dan Creasey about the white and blue lines on the pitch!

3-2 55 mins – a Billy Liffen cut back saw Toby Lempriere’s deft left foot finish put the OR’s back in front.

4-2 65 mins – a terrific team move and breakaway goal, saw a Liffen pass through to Lempriere and a swift decent finish from Adam Randall who chips the Keeper.

JEFC reduced the arrears on 67mins. However the OR’s held on for a deserved win.

Toby Lempriere edged Kyle Moore to the Ruts MOTM award. Both players put in phenomenal shifts for our cause.

The A Team Fixture away to Tooting Bec B FC was postponed owing to a tragic incident outside of the Venue, which lead to all matches at the Hub being postponed.

The B Team secured a fine 2 – 0 win against Sutton High ‘A’ FC. Alex Blenkinsop notched a brace, whilst the effervescent veteran Steve Berry was the Ruts MOTM.

Best wishes to the Ruts teams playing tomorrow, especially to the Sunday Lads who dabble in their first ever Surrey Cup outing.

Results Round Up – Saturday 5th November 2022.

The 1st XI bowed out of the League Cup earlier, despite competing solidly against higher placed Chelsea Rovers FC today.

This was largely a tight game for an hour, and the Ruts went ahead around the hour mark, courtesy of a decent Billy Liffen strike. However, the talented Rovers upped their tempo and hit a trio of goals to secure their win. Liffen was the OR’s MOTM. We wish CRFC all the best in the next round.

The A Team secured a terrific 3 – 0 Victory against Reigate Priory ‘B’ FC in the Surrey Lower Junior Cup. The Ruts Scorers were Dan Wallis, Aaron Sandys and Seb Rayner. Sandys was the OR’s MOTM.

The B Team secured a decent 2 – 0 win over Real Holmesdale FC in the League. Alex Blenkinsop and Jake Searles scored the goals, with young Robbie Larcombe notching the MOTM award.

Results Round Up – Saturday 29th October 2022.

The 1st XI secured a fully deserved 3 points, with a terrific home win against the previously undefeated table toppers Thames Utd FC. The Ruts were the better team overall in the first period and were punished in injury time, as they slipped a goal behind.

Despite this temporary setback the Ruts continued to put in a fully committed display in the second half and were promptly level on 47 minutes, as Toby Lempriere seized on a mistake by the visiting keeper to level from close range.

With the game perhaps looking like it may be heading for a draw, Skipper Paul Gough had other ideas as he fired a delightful free kick into the top right corner of the Visitors goal.

There were multiple massive performances from the whole team. However, Scott Jones was the OR’s MOTM for a terrific performance, whilst stand in Keeper Kyle Moore also deserves a mention as he ‘took one for the team’ by donning the gloves pulling off some decent saves in the process.

The ‘A’ Team did not have a Fixture this Week.

The ‘B’ Team played well under par as they slumped to a 5 – 2 defeat at AFC North Leatherhead in the League Junior Cup. Alex Blenkinsop and Jake Searles scored the OR’s Goals. MOTM TBC.

Results Round Up – Saturday 15th October 2022.

The 1st XI lost 5 – 2 at Old Boys Clapham FC. There is no denying this was a disappointing defeat. However, the margin was flattering for the hosts, who were gifted a debatable penalty, and their 4th goal was also awarded despite our stand in keeper Mappy being floored on the edge of the box.

Adam Randall and Paul Whitthread scored for the OR’s. We now need to brush ourselves down and move on to next week in better form.

The ‘A’ Team beat Oxted & District ‘A’ FC 3 – 1 in the Surrey Lower Junior Cup at Poplar Road.

Despite falling a goal behind within seconds, a Tony Furneaux hattrick secured the Ruts place in the next round. The Ruts MOTM was Seb Rayner.

The ‘B’ Team overcame London Olympia FC by 8 – 0 at Tudor Drive. The Ruts scorers were Alex Blenkinsop (3) Mark Todd (2) plus further goals from Lee ‘rolling back the years’ Poulter and Erol ‘rolling back the years even further at 49, nearly 50’ Yilmaz. Dean Riordan notched the Ruts other goal and MOTM award.

Best wishes to all the Ruts teams playing tomorrow.
