Results Round Up – Saturday 24th September 2022.

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.

Results Round Up – Saturday 3rd September 2022.

The 1st XI opened their League Campaign with a disappointing 2 – 1 defeat against Chiswick FC.

The OR’s deservedly took the lead shortly after the break courtesy of a decent strike from Billy Liffen. However, the Ruts failed to increase their tally despite having enough possession to do so.

The Visitors levelled midway through the half and despite the game then seemingly heading for a draw, Chiswick pounced again late on.

Young Billy Whitthread nearly levelled for the Ruts with virtually the last kick of the match, alas his delightful long range effort was denied by the crossbar!

Club Leg-end Erol took a mixed 3s/4s Club XI to Purley Old Boys and came away with a 5 – 4 Friendly win. The Ruts goals came courtesy of Alex Blenkinsop 3, plus strikes from Kevin Foster and Steve Berry. Yilmaz awarded Steve Berry the MOTM award.

Best Wishes to the Ruts Sunday XI who open their League Campaign tomorrow at Wandsworth Common Pitch 5 versus Tyne & Thames FC.

The Sunday Squad overcame Warlingham Res FC 5 – 2 in their game. The Ruts Scorers were Sam Barton 2, Jamie Collins, David Cecil & Liam Washford-Bent.

The Saturday Squad beat Warlingham FC 3 – 2 thanks to a Billy Liffen brace, plus a Will Mortimer header from a Alfie Dulley corner. Liffen was also the OR’s MOTM.

Result – Saturday 13th August 2022.

The Ruts had a tough battle in the heat away to Chiddingfold FC today.

Late blowouts by the hatful can only be described by words I cannot type on here! However, huge credit to the lads who battled valiantly in securing a 1 – 1 Draw.

Young Harry Swain put the Ruts ahead with a calm finish when he found himself through one on one with the Home Keeper.

Chiddingfold levelled in the same period, following some debatable defending. However, a draw was probably a fair result on the balance of play.

Best wishes to our Sunday XI tomorrow morning.
