The 1st XI finally got off the mark with a 5 Star performance, following their two previous games which could have gone either way. The Ruts should have been ahead in the first half based on the overall balance of chances. However, the lads finally exploded out of the blocks shortly after half time, as they roared into a 5-0 lead.
The OR’s scorers were Billy Liffen (2) Alex Curme, Sam Leatherby & Billy Whitthread. The Ruts afternoon was slightly dampened as Barnes reduced the deficit with a debatable consolation. Sam Leatherby was the Ruts MOTM with a fine performance in this 5 – 1 Victory.
The A & B Teams were both in Junior Shield Cup action.
The ‘A’ Team somehow managed to through away a 2 – 0 lead against Dorking Cobblers FC, to eventually lose 3 – 2. Tony Furneaux & Robert Quiqley. MOTM TBC.
The ‘B’ Team secured a convincing 4 – 0 win at Mitcham Park Res FC. The Ruts Scorers were Alex Blenkinsop 2, plus strikes from Harry Reeder and Steve Berry, with the latter also securing the MOTM award.
Best wishes to the Ruts Sunday XI tomorrow.
