The 1st XI lost 5 – 2 at Old Boys Clapham FC. There is no denying this was a disappointing defeat. However, the margin was flattering for the hosts, who were gifted a debatable penalty, and their 4th goal was also awarded despite our stand in keeper Mappy being floored on the edge of the box.
Adam Randall and Paul Whitthread scored for the OR’s. We now need to brush ourselves down and move on to next week in better form.
The ‘A’ Team beat Oxted & District ‘A’ FC 3 – 1 in the Surrey Lower Junior Cup at Poplar Road.
Despite falling a goal behind within seconds, a Tony Furneaux hattrick secured the Ruts place in the next round. The Ruts MOTM was Seb Rayner.
The ‘B’ Team overcame London Olympia FC by 8 – 0 at Tudor Drive. The Ruts scorers were Alex Blenkinsop (3) Mark Todd (2) plus further goals from Lee ‘rolling back the years’ Poulter and Erol ‘rolling back the years even further at 49, nearly 50’ Yilmaz. Dean Riordan notched the Ruts other goal and MOTM award.
Best wishes to all the Ruts teams playing tomorrow.
