The 1st XI suffered a 2 – 1 home reverse against West Fulham FC today. Jimmy Graham put the Ruts ahead in the 20th minute following a neatly timed run and finish, before the Visitors levelled with virtually the last kick of the half via a 20 yard free kick. The second half saw chances at both ends and despite this, the match appeared to be heading for a draw until the visitors nabbed a late winner. The only slight bonus is that the OR’s remain narrowly top of the table.
The 2nd XI were also on the receiving end of a defeat as they went down 2 – 0 at Merton Social FC.
Erols Yilmaz’s revitalised 3rd XI picked up the Ruts only victory of the day as they overcame Merton Social ‘A’ FC 3 – 2 thanks to a brace from the in form Matt Vandepeer and a strike from Kevin Foster. Well done lads!
Best wishes to the Vets and Junior teams tomorrow.
