The 1st XI secured a second win on the bounce with a decent 3 – 2 Victory at Ashtead FC earlier today.
The goals in the match came as follows,
0-1 – The Ruts went 0 – 1 down to a scrappy header in the first few minutes, as a headed ball bounced awkwardly, evading our returning Keeper Evan Watson.
1-1 – On 26mins Alex Curme crossed, Will Mortimer nodded the ball into the danger zone and young Billy Whitthread confidently fired home the Ruts leveller.
2-1 – On 31mins, an overshot cross saw Billy Whitthread battle for the ball close to the corner, before he unleashed a rasping shot ,from an acute angle ,which cleverly evaded the shocked Home Keeper at his near post.
2-2 – On 69 mins, Ashtead levelled well with a fine 25 yard strike.
3-2 – On 85 mins, debutant Scott Jones passed well to Toby Lempriere, who then outmuscled an Ashtead Defender, before hitting a decent strike into the bottom left corner of the Home Goal.
Billy Whitthread was the OR’s MOTM, not only for his Brace, but also for putting in a tireless hardworking shift for the Team.
The ‘A’ Team lost 7 – 6 to NPL ‘A’ in a goal fest affair in Teddington. Tony Furneaux struck 4 times, deservedly securing himself the OR’s MOTM award, whilst Aaron Sandys also struck a brace.
The ‘B’ Team secured an inspired 2 – 0 Victory against Dorking Cobblers FC. The Ruts Scorers were Steve Berry & Alex Blenkinsop. Robbie Larcombe was the OR’s MOTM.
Best wishes to all Ruts teams playing tomorrow.
