The 1st XI secured a 3 – 2 win over Royal Holloway Old Boys FC courtesy of 3 decent goals. Long range first half raspers from Zak Graham and Graham Rolfe put the Ruts ahead before RHOB reduced the deficit before the interval. The OR’s dominated for long spells throughout, but were only able to add one further goal to their tally courtesy of Reece Jackson. The visitors notched again to complete the goals for the day. Best wishes to Neil Orr with his injury which we hope is not too serious.
The 2nd XI drew 3 – 3 with Sutton High thanks to a Calum Battershill hatrick. 2 terrific first half strikes put the Ruts in the driving seat, although Sutton hadn’t read the script as they promptly turned the game on it’s head by going 3 – 2 ahead. Fortunately Battershill fired home a late penalty for a share of the spoils.
Unfortunately the 3rd and 4th XI were subjected to a ‘carry-on’ afternoon of football through no fault of their own. Basically, our pitch bookings were messed up (not by us) and after being informed they could move pitches (false alert), they then had to change grounds (which they duly did). However, the whole affair went even further pair shaped as they ended up getting kicked off their pitch, which had also been booked by another club. Disastrous and unfair on all of the lads. Let’s hope everything is straight for next week.
