Results Round Up – Wednesday 25th April 2018.

The 1st XI secured a vital 3 points in their quest to retain the Title, as they travelled to Wandgas Sports FC this evening for a game incurring bright sun, heavy rain and hailstones.


Clever footwork and a mazy run saw Jimmy Graham put the OR’s into a 9th minute lead, although it’s fair to say that the hosts created plenty of chances themselves, forcing a superb stop from Seymore in the OR’s goal and his assured handling on the skiddy surface enabled the OR’s to retain the first half lead. That said, the Ruts continued to create chances for themselves.


However, it took until the 70th minute when a clever interception from Jake Hill saw him feed a pass to Zak Graham, who in turn fed it on to Chris Beard, who’s effort found it’s way into the net at the far post. Good positioning from the Ref ensured the goal was given.


Despite plenty of chances at both ends the Ruts gained the all important victory, with the Hosts edging first half chances and the Ruts the second half.


Unfortunately the 3rd XI’s torrid campaign saw them offically relegated, as they went down 3 – 1 away to Warlingham FC with one game still to play on the 5th of May. Kyle Moore hit the Ruts consolation. Onwards and upwards.


Best wishes to the teams in action this coming weekend.

Results Round Up – Saturday 14th April 2018.

The 1st XI ran out comfortable 9 – 0 winners against a sporting Ashtead FC today, and in reality, if it hadn’t been for some wayward finishing, coupled with some consistently inspired goal-keeping from their top No 1, things may possibly have been heftier.


With just 2 minutes on the clock a terrific long range pass from the Ruts Keeper Adam Seymore found Jimmy Graham on the right wing and his pinpoint cross was powerfully headed home by Zak Graham.


On 31 minutes OR’s Skipper Chris Beard fired a stunning 25 yard shot to make it 2 – 0 and just a minute later, Beard was involved again as he was fouled in the Area and Zak Graham converted the resulting penalty to make it 3 – 0. Beard then continued his rampant phase as he pounced to hit the Ruts 4th and his brace.


Graham Rolfe fired home a left footed shot from 18 yards in the 45th minute and Zak Graham earned and converted his second penalty in first half injury time, which completed his Hatrick to make it 6 – 0 at the break.


Credit to Ashtead for digging in, although despite their efforts, the Ruts did manage to add 3 further goals.


Substitute Gary ‘Spanish’ Wilton made an early second half impact as he hit a superb unstoppable shot in the 51st minute and this was followed by a goal bound Jimmy Graham effort being headed in virtually on the line by the influential Jake Hill on 63 minutes.


The Ruts final goal came in the 67th minute when Jimmy Graham went on a mazy defence splitting run before slotting home.


Special mention must go to Paul Tuckey, who despite numerous serious injuries and operations, somehow always manages to bounce back well ahead of any Specialists schedule, always itching to play, which his ability fully warrants. A talented top player, a top lad who certainly put in a decent shift in his spell today. Well done Tucks!


The 2nd 3rd XI’s did not have Fixtures today.


Unfortunately, the 4th XI lost their combined fixture versus Darkside FC today, as they went down 4 – 1, with Aaron Betteridge notching the Ruts consolation.


Best wishes to the Vets and Junior Teams tomorrow.
