The 1st XI won 5 – 3 at Reigate Priory FC, with the hosts claiming two soft penalties. The Ruts goals came courtesy of Chris Beard (2), Zak Graham (2) and Duncan Fraser. The pick of the OR’s goals was a 25 yard screamer from Zak Graham. Dan Lawrence was the Ruts MOTM. Photos from this match are now online, courtesy of @andythephoto So a massive thank you to him.
The 2nd XI drew 0 – 0 in a tight match with Old Russellians FC. At times it was pretty niggly, with some poor challenges going in from both sides. The Ruts ended the match with 9 players, which endorses the brief summary above!
The 3rd XI’s difficult start to the campaign continued as they suffered a 1 – 6 home defeat against Warlingham Res FC. Steve Berry notched the OR’s consolation.
The 4th XI achieved a credible 2 – 0 win at Teddington Res FC, thanks to Goals from Sam Colebrook and Billy Finnis.

The 3rd XI secured their first point of their campaign after drawing 5 – 5 at Chessington KCFC ‘A’ FC. Debutant Matt Vandepeer scored an epic hatrick and Mark Todd bagged a brace.
The 4th XI had a close encounter with NPL ‘A; eventually winning 3 – 2. It was level at the interval 2 – 2, with 3 of the 4 goals coming from the spot. Dean Riordan slotted both OR Pens.
The Ruts winner came at the end of a delightful move with young Jake Searles clever and deft wing work providing Harry Reeder with the chance to slot home for what proved to be the all important winner.
Best wishes to the Junior Ruts Junior Teams tomorrow.
