The 1st XI must be wondering when lady luck will take a shine to them, as they certainly didn’t deserve to have their recent run of defeats continue. The Ruts were on top overall for much of the first hour against the unbeaten Westside and should have taken the lead early in the 2nd half when a deft team move saw a Jerome Longville shot hit the post and fly off to safety. The sucker blow goal came against the run of play around the 75 minute mark and the Ruts still had time to create a couple more opening which they were unable to capitalise on. Let’s hope the tides of footballing fortunes turn up for us soon.
The 2nd XI came back from 4 nil down against Crescent Rovers ‘A’ to win 5 – 4!! with Phil Lines, Rhys Waul, Ross Turner, Steve Berry and George Tidey notching for the Ruts.
The 3rd XI comprehensively beat Wanderers A 8 – 2 with a trio of OR doubles courtesy of Dan Martin, Dan Larkin and Ollie Hicks cushioned with an apparent rasper from Richard Edmonds and a further strike from Mr T.
Best wishes to the Vets and U9’s tomorrow
