The 1st XI secured a most welcome victory with a committed all round team performance against Chessington KCFC today. A penalty on 5 minutes from Mears was cancelled out 3 minutes later when a CKCFC Corner curled right in to the far corner of the Ruts net. Hughes made his long journey worthwhile on 15 minutes when he rose high to see his header thwart the away keeper who could only help the ball in to the net. Wiltshire neatly beat the offside trap to provide the Ruts with a 3 – 1 cushion at the break.
The visitors reduced the arrears following a defensive error around the hour mark, although the OR’s were not going to have another bleak day at the office as substitute Gough finished from close range following a decent cross goal header from Hughes and Moore put the icing on the cake following a determined run which presented him with the opportunity to finish well with a sweet overhead kick. Big well done to all of the team, especially those stepping up to the plate to ably fill the voids being left by those out injured and unavailable.
The 2nd XI suffered a hefty 5 – 0 away defeat at RPV ‘A’ FC, one to forget I would imagine. Best wishes to the Vets and U9’s tomorrow.
