The 1st XI narrowly lost 3 – 2 to Tooting Bec FC of the Surrey Elite League in a competitive Friendly match at the Hub in an early Kick-Off today.
The Hosts took the lead in the 29th Minute before the Ruts hit a quickfire double to secure the half time lead. Firstly, Ollie Hicks conjured a delightful leveller in the 34th minute following clever footwork and a deft finish and then in the 37th minute Paul Whitthread pounced at the end of a decent move to put the Ruts 2 – 1 ahead.
Tooting replied with a two goal rally of their own very early in the second half and despite chances for both sides to score again, the match was played out, with the final score 3 – 2 to Tooting Bec.
We wish the Bec all the very best in their Elite Title Quest next weekend.
