Our return to football saw 2 wins, 2 defeats and a draw!
The 1st XI secured the victories as they overcame Real Holmesdale FC in both matches of the Double Header. The first game saw the OR’s win 1 – 0 courtesy of a neat turn and finish from Kevin Foster which also secured him the MOTM Award.
The second match saw the Ruts run out 3 – 0 Winners thanks to 3 decent strikes. Elliott Gibbs headed home a Lee Holland Corner in the first period, and in the second half Jake Searles deftly scored after winning a great tackle before neatly notching, then Toby Lempriere scored a well placed goal to wrap up a deserved win. Charlie Woods was the OR’s MOTM. So a very valuable 6 points in the bag to help with the 1s promotion challenge.
The 2nd XI suffered a 4 – 2 defeat at Sutton High, with Sam Leatherby and Ryan Kennett scoring for the OR’s. Adam Randall was the OR’s MOTM.
The 3rd XI went down 5 – 2 to Cheam VW FC. Fraser Trimmings converted a penalty and debutant Liam Washford-Bent also scored. Ciaran Moorhouse was the Ruts MOTM.
The 4th XI fought back well from a 3 – 1 half time deficit at Waddon Wanderers FC. The OR’s Scorers were Abdel Hafidi (2) and Simon Minihane. Club Legend Andy Flanagan was the OR’s MOTM.
Best wishes to the Ruts Junior Teams tomorrow.
