The 2nd XI went down 5 – 1 away to Chessington KCFC Res. Scorer TBC.

Results Round Up – Saturday the 8th December 2018.

If ever there was a day when we our ranks were severely depleted, then this could well be it! Despite this, we still fielded 3 much changed teams and gave 1st XI debuts to 17 year old Jake Searles and ‘just turned 18’ years old Robbie Larcombe. Both young men started this season with the 4th XI, before being deservedly promoted recently to the 2nd XI and today Jake started and Robbie played over an hour for the 1st XI and reports reach us, advising that both players acquitted themselves very well, which bodes well for the future. Well done men.

Anyway, the revised look 1st XI which also included rare match starts for the joint Managers Nick Raggett & Marc Skinner (who are both usually snug in their pitchside tracksuits) saw them win 3 – 2 at Windlesham Utd.FC thanks to a Zak Graham brace (including an absolute belter for his second) and the winning goal was scored by no other than Marc Skinner, as he struck home at the far post to earn the Ruts a hard fought victory, Ruts MOTM was keeper Mike Tsavdaridis.

The 2nd XI went down 1 – 5 at home against Merton Social Res FC in the Ellis Cup, a close fought first half saw Kyle Moore level for the Ruts. Alas, a late flurry of goals from the hosts wrapped the game up comfortably for them in the end.

The 3rd XI went down 5 – 0 at home to Croydon Falcons FC, also in the Ellis Cup.

Best wishes to the Junior teams tomorrow.

Results Round Up – Saturday 1st December 2018.

The 1st XI’s Match was postponed.

The 2nd XI drew 2 – 2 at home with Fulham Deaf FC. Unfortunately the Ruts finished the game with 9 men after two very late red cards. The OR’s lead twice before being pegged back on both occasions. Jarrod Engelbrecht and Zac Keywood scored for the Ruts

17 year old young buckster Robbie Larcombe was the OR’s MOTM. On the plus side, it was great to see 4 young players in the side, all of whom progressed via Boo’s largely youthful 4th XI.

The 3rd XI continued their recent good form with a 2 – 1 win over Worcester Park ‘A’ FC. Sam Maclean and John Pearson scored the Ruts all important goals. Erol Yilmaz informed me he was the MOTM. However, I am unsure whether he is on the Beer, or if this can be validated by his able joint manager George Tidey.

The 4th XI did not play.

Best wishes to the Junior Teams tomorrow

Results Round Up – Saturday 24th November 2018.

The 1st XI suffered a 2 – 1 home reverse against West Fulham FC today. Jimmy Graham put the Ruts ahead in the 20th minute following a neatly timed run and finish, before the Visitors levelled with virtually the last kick of the half via a 20 yard free kick. The second half saw chances at both ends and despite this, the match appeared to be heading for a draw until the visitors nabbed a late winner. The only slight bonus is that the OR’s remain narrowly top of the table.

The 2nd XI were also on the receiving end of a defeat as they went down 2 – 0 at Merton Social FC.

Erols Yilmaz’s revitalised 3rd XI picked up the Ruts only victory of the day as they overcame Merton Social ‘A’ FC 3 – 2 thanks to a brace from the in form Matt Vandepeer and a strike from Kevin Foster. Well done lads!

Best wishes to the Vets and Junior teams tomorrow.
