The 1st XI ran out 5 – 1 winners against Ashtead FC at Poplar Road earlier today, securing a further all important 3 points.
The OR’s conceded a soft goal early on before spinning the game on it’s head before the interval with 4 goals courtesy of Zak Graham, Duncan Fraser, Jimmy Graham & Chris Beard. The pick of the bunch was Beard’s strike in the 28th minute, as he fired home at the end of a slick move involving Billy Liffen and Jimmy Graham.
Inspired keeping from the Visitors included a penalty save limited the Ruts to just one second half goal, which was a Zak Graham blazing strike from an acute angle.
The 2nd XI were clearly involved in an epic cup tie at Woking & Horsell Res FC, in a match that finished 4 – 4 in normal time. News reaches us that Steve Asomaning was in stunning form in the Ruts goal making some epic saves including a penalty.
2 – 2 at the break, 4 – 3 ahead in the final stages and then we only managed to convert 1 of 4 penalties taken in the shootout, converted by Kyle Moore. Wow! Normal time scorers TBC.
The 3rd XI went down 4 – 1 at Old Plymouthians Res FC in the League. Darren Bloomfield notched the OR’s consolation.
The 4th XI continued their resurgent run as they beat St Martins FC 6 – 2 in the Teck Cup 2nd Round, thanks to braces from Dean Riordan and Sam Colebrook, plus striked from Miles Wiltshire & Jason Hughes.
Best wishes to the Vets and Junior teams tomorrow.
