The 1st XI secured a hard fought 2 – 1 home win over Hanworth Sports today. The Visitors went ahead in the 2nd Half when a fortuitous Free-kick evaded everyone to land in the back of the Ruts net at the far post. The OR’s delightful leveller came following a deft flick on header from Paul Tuckey, which Zac Graham neatly latched on to lifting it over the advancing keeper. With a fair few yellow cards flying around the match soon saw a Red as the visitors found themselves reduced to 10 men.
The Ruts secured their victory via a belting header from Paul Whitthread as he superbly met a pin-point corner from Graham. Ruts MOTM was Duncan Fraser for his sterling performance.
The 2nd XI suffered a 3 – 0 defeat away to Chessington KCFC Res in the Cup, with all of the damaged cast in the first half.
The 3rd XI had a day off, although credit to the lager swilling lads for coming along to support the 1st XI.
The 4th XI continued their campaign in accustomed goal-fest fashion as they beat Hook Venturers 6 – 3 in the Teck Cup. The Ruts goals came courtesy of braces from Aaron Betteridge and Myles Wiltshire with Jason Hughes and Harry Reeder notching one a piece.
Best wishes to the Vets and Juniors tomorrow.
