The 1st XI lost 3 – 1 at Home to Selhurst FC today. In reality, the Ruts were very slow out of the blocks and they were duly punished in the 8th and 30th minutes. That said, the OR’s performance was much improved for the remainder of the match thereon, which saw a second half display worthy of securing a point based on chances, although their only reward was Alex Blenkinsop’s goal after a Billy Liffen shot was saved and looped in the air.
The Visitors secured the 3 points, when they added a 3rd goal in injury time. Alex Blenkinsop was the OR’s MOTM.
The 2nd XI drew 0 – 0 with Surrey Casuals FC. Stand in Keeper Paul Tuckey was the OR’s MOTM.
The 3rd XI lost 4 – 1 at Shelton Athletic FC. Dan Wallis scored for the Ruts and Ross Trimmings was MOTM.
The 4th XI also lost 4 – 1, as they went down to Warlingham Reserves FC. Ayoub Fitri scored for the Ruts, whilst Veteran Simon Minihane was MOTM.
Our Walking Football Team were the only Ruts Winners today, as they notched an impressive 7 – 2 Win at Exiles FC. The scorers were Paul Cook (3) which secured him the deserved MOTM nod, plus a brace from Boo (Graham Larcombe) and strikes from Slats (Richard Slatford) & Graham Clayton.
Best Wishes to the Ruts Youth Teams Tomorrow
