The 1st XI put in a very solid, albeit not a glamorous performance in their quest for the title today, as they managed to overcome Hanworth Sports 4 – 1 away in the League.
The Ruts went ahead on 5 minutes from the spot after Michael Beard was upended and Zac Graham promptly slotted home. The hosts levelled before the interval, courtesy of an innocuous own goal.
In the second period a trademark strike from Graham Rolfe and two further goals from top scorer Zac Graham saw him complete his hatrick (including a great 25 yard free kick) which lead to a deserved MOTM award. Billy Liffen was also apparently outstanding with a tireless performance.
The 3rd XI went down 3 – 1 at Trinity Reserves in a day to forget. Ruts Player Manager Erol Yilmaz was harshly dismissed for 2 yellows, whilst Ben Kennett scored the OR’s consolation.
Best wishes to the Vets and Junior Teams tomorrow.
