The 1st XI secured a deserved 2 – 1 win on a heavy pitch at Old Plymouthians FC earlier today.
The Ruts had Keeper Adam Seymour to thank for providing two fine assists. In the first half he delivered a long ball forward to Billy Liffen, who out hassled his marker, before decisively poking the Ruts into a 32nd minute lead.
OP’s levelled a few minutes later, when a headed goal was scored at the near post.
However, the Ruts kept on doggedly plugging away, and they secured their all-important winning goal in the 81st minute following another accurate long ball forward from Seymour, which lead to the lively Dan Wallis calmly slotting home the Ruts winner.
Whilst the whole team put in a real shift – it was young Billy Whitthread who deservedly secured the Ruts MOTM award for his fine performance.
The ‘A’ XI also managed a decent 2 – 1 victory at Motspur Park FC. The Ruts Goals came courtesy of Alex Hammond and Ross Trimmings.
MOTM was Howard ‘Howie’ Payne who stepped in from the Sunday XI to help the Saturday lads out. Thanks also to Kacper Janiak for doing the same. Great effort and support lads.
The ‘B’ XI Match was Postponed this morning owing to a waterlogged pitch at Warlingham.
Best Wishes to all of the Ruts Teams competing tomorrow.
