Results Round Up – Saturday 14th October 2017.

The 1st XI secured a decent 4 – 1 win in a very competitive match at West Fulham FC earlier today.

 

The Ruts came out in strong fashion, ably boosted by the return of the influential Graham Rolfe, and on 6 minutes a Zak Graham corner was headed powerfully back across goal by Duncan Fraser and promptly slotted home by Jimmy Graham from close range, providing the Ruts with a terrific start to the match.

 

The OR’s were the stronger team for the first 30 minutes, although the hosts increased their presence for the remainder of the half and forced Seymour in to a close range parried save, before they levelled from the spot with the second to last kick off the half. (with the final kick being the restart from the centre circle).

 

No doubt buoyed by their leveller, West Fulham opened brightly in the early stages of the second period, before the Ruts stamped their mark on the game midway through the half with a well struck left footed shot from Rolfe to make it 2 – 1.

 

A defensive mix up enabled Jimmy Graham to make it 3 – 1 and then the game became totally wrapped up when good wing play by Billy Liffen lead to Jimmy crossing to Zak Graham who fired home with a diving header.

 

The 2nd XI drew 2 – 2 with Supercala FC at Poplar Road. The Ruts goals came from Jon Taylor and Gary Wilton.

 

The 3rd XI won 4 – 2 at New Life Res FC in the Cup. An impressive hatrick from Sam Maclean and a solitary strike from Darren Bloomfield doing the damage there.

 

The 4th XI’s tough start to the campaign continued, as they suffered a 3 – 0 home defeat to Thornton Heath FC.

 

Best wishes to the Vets and Junior teams tomorrow.

Results Round Up – Saturday 7th October 2017.

A dire day Results wise for the Ruts today.

 

The 1st XI went out of the League Senior Cup in lacklustre fashion earlier, going down 3 – 1 at Forestdale. A fairly even first half saw the hosts go ahead in the 31st minute and then double their tally in the 2nd minute of injury time on the cusp of the interval.

The Ruts had plenty of chances during the match, although the chances all went awry. Midway through the period a soft 3rd was conceded. The Ruts pulled a late goal back from Zak Graham after he won and converted a penalty.

 

The 2nd XI also bowed out of a League Cup going down 2 – 1 at AFC Gatton. Paul Gough notched the Ruts Goal.

 

The 3rd XI also suffered a reverse, as they went down 3 1 against Warlingham. Mark Todd scored the OR’s goal.

 

Onwards and upwards for next week!

Results Round Up – Saturday 30th September 2017.

The 1st XI secured a 2 – 0 win over Wandgas FC today in a hard fought and close encounter. A goalless first half saw a couple of chances at either end, with the Visitors coming closest to breaking the deadlock when a fizzing strike smashed against the woodwork just before the interval.

 

Early in the 2nd half Dan Gurney notched his first goal for the Club following a neat run and a slick finish, as he curled the ball over the keeper with a shot from the outside of his foot.

 

The half was generally evenly balanced, although the Ruts managed to tie the game up around 75 minutes when a clever cross from Billy Liffen was headed home at the far post by Chris Beard.

 

The 2nd XI also claimed 3 points in a 3 – 2 win at Epsom Athletic Res FC. The OR’s goals coming courtesy of a Paul Gough penalty and strikes from Diogo Carvalho & Kyle Moore.

 

The 3rd XI went out of the League Cup after losing 4 – 1 at Holland Sports. Sam Maclean notched the OR’s goal.

 

The 4th XI were 2 – 0 up at the break against Lower Green today, although the hosts came back to win 3 – 2 with plenty of help from over the top physical play. The Ruts goals came from Jason Hughes and Harry Reeder.

 

Best wishes to the Vets and Junior teams tomorrow.

Results Round Up – Saturday 23rd September 2017.

The 1st XI bounced back from last week in emphatic fashion, as they won 6 – 1 at Epsom Athletic earlier today. The Ruts went ahead after just 90 seconds after a throw-in from Daniel Gurney was flicked on by Zak Graham and Michael Beard headed it passed the home keeper for the early lead.

 

Epsom levelled in the 16th minute, although their reprieve was short lived as Beard promptly doubled his and the teams tally a minute later with a long range strike.  A sublime bit of footwork and a deft finish from Zak Graham in the 38th minute then saw the Ruts enter the interval 3 Р1 ahead.

 

In the second period Duncan Fraser headed goal-ward and saw his effort helped in by a defender, and then debutant Gary Wilton marked his arrival fresh off of the bench with a powerful headed effort to make it 5 – 1. Jimmy Graham converted a penalty after Zak was upended to make it 6 – 1 and then with virtually the last kick of the match Epsom reduced the arrears to 6 – 2.

 

The 2nd XI went down 5 Р1 at home to Woodmansterne Hyde with Ollie Hicks scoring the Ruts consolation.

 

The 3rd XI secured a terrific 6 – 2 win at Beckenham FC thanks to goals from Diogo Carvalho (2), Dan Martin, George Tidey, Richard Edmonds and Aaron Sandys. Apparently Sandys effort was a cheeky 40 yard lob and the team set their stall out early after storming in to a 3 – 0 lead inside 20 minutes.

 

The 4th XI, without their charismatic Manager Boo-Boo, had a bad day at the office as they sunk to a 10 – 0 defeat at Old Isleworthians. Onwards and upwards for next week Chaps.

 

Best wishes to the Vets and Junior Teams tomorrow, especially the U15 Girls who will be at Poplar Road.
