This was not a good day at the office overall with the 1st XI going down 2 – 0 at home to Coney Hall, albeit that the scoreline was flattering to the visitors. A depleted 2s went down 3 – 0 away, leaving the 3rd XI to bring home the bacon with a 4 -1 victory over Battlebridge. More details to follow later.
The 1st XI were left to rue a number of missed first half chances in a tightly contested game and suffered a 2 – 0 home defeat v Coney Hall. In fairness a draw would have been a fair result, although they took their chances and we didn’t. A 75th minute goal looked to have secured all three points for the visitors and some salt was added to the Ruts wounds when a highly debatable and extremely soft penalty was awarded in injury time which enabled the away win to look more comfortable than it actually was. Onwards and upwards.
Best wishes to the Vets and U9’s in their quest for victory tomorrow.
