The 1st XI beat Godstone 3 – 2 in the Senior Shield at Poplar Road today. The visitors were lively early doors and the Ruts had Mike Lines to thank for several decent first half saves. Billy Liffen then put the OR’s ahead with a strike the keeper could only parry. The game remained largely close throughout, although the Ruts went further ahead through a deft strike from Cathal McGrath and a distanced walloper from Kyle Moore which was a decent strike. The visitors provided a tense end to the closing stages by reducing the arrears to 3 – 2. However, it is the Ruts name in the hat for the next round as the team build their quest in obtaining some joy from the season.
The 3rd XI went down 3 – 2 at Sutton High Reserves with George Tidey and Jack McGoldrick notching for the Ruts.
Good luck to the Vets tomorrow
