‘A trio of braces makes Rut’s Super Saturday’ ….
The 1st XI secured a vital 2 – 1 win over Trinity AFC today thanks to a Jerome Longville brace. The visitors went ahead within the first five minutes when a free-kick was poorly defended and then promptly levelled following good work and a cross from Captain Nick Raggett, which was firmly despatched by Longville. The game was largely scrappy, although the OR’s had the lion’s share of possession and chances, with both the crossbar and post denying them. Despite this, the Ruts then had a great opportunity to go ahead from the penalty spot, only for Mears’s kick to be well saved. With final time ticking the OR’s finally secured their crucial win thanks to a deft strike from Longville. Well done chaps… we battle on in earnest to avoid the drop.
The 2nd XI had a weekend off, whilst the 3rd XI notched an impressive 4 – 0 away win at Beckenham FC, thanks to double strikes from both of their dandy forwards Ollie Hicks & Dan Martin.
Best wishes to the Vets and U9’s tomorrow.
