Results Round Up – Saturday 9th December 2017.

Despite wholesale changes to their line up the 1st XI secured a thumping 9 – 0 win over a sporting Ashtead FC in the County Cup thanks to a trio of braces from Chris.Beard, Billy Liffen and Michael Beard, plus additional strikes from Kieran O’Driscoll, Paul Whitthread and Gary Wilton. The pick of the bunch was Billy Liffen’s stunning opener from long distance. Credit to the Ashtead keeper for making endless quality saves during the afternoon.

 

The 2nd XI drew 0 – 0 at Old Russellians, whilst the 3rd XI suffered a further defeat in their challenging campaign, as they went down 4 – 3 at Worcester Park ‘A’ FC. Mark Todd (2) and Kionte Waul were on the mark for the OR’s.

 

The 4th XI suffered a hefty 7 – 1 defeat at Darkside FC, with Myles Wiltshire scoring the Ruts consolation goal.

 

The major news of the day saw Craig Lyle donning an Old Ruts kit for a phenomenal 750th time. We’ll be doing an Interview with Craig before Xmas, reflecting on his highlights and low-lights. In the meantime he will long continue to sit at the top of the appearance leader board in our hall of fame (on our website).

Craig is pictured below!

Results Round Up – Saturday 25th November 2017.

The 1st XI beat a stubborn Forestdale FC 5 – 0 at Poplar Road. The goals came from Zak Graham (2), Jimmy Graham, Michael Beard and Billy Liffen. In my own personal opinion – I found it bizarre, that in what was a generally clean game overall, with a card-less first half. It somehow, very strangely became overshadowed by the incredibly heavy & excessive showing of 8 cards, split evenly in the second half.

 

The 2nd XI lost 2 – 1 at Crescent Rovers A FC. Gary Wilton notched for the Ruts.

 

The 3rd XI suffered a further loss, as they went down 5 – 0 at Wandgas Vets.

 

The 4th XI beat Kempton Athletic 5 – 2, thanks to goals from Dean ‘hatrick’ Riordan (3) and additional strikes from Harry Reeder and Jake Searles.

 

Best wishes to the Vets and Junior teams tomorrow.

Vets Result – Sunday 19th November 2017.

The Vets ran out convincing 9 – 2 winners this morning against Leatherhead Vets at Poplar Road.

 

Undeterred by availability issues this week ‘the bare 11’ put a convincing display on, in the absence of their captivating Manager Lee Poulter and they have Vets Secretary and Club Legend Lee Caffell to thank for officiating soundly in the absence of a recognised official.  Thanks also to  Billy Finnis who no doubt would have helped to ‘pick up the pieces’ in organising things on the day.

 

The Ruts scorers were Simon Minihane (4), Billy Finnis (2), Dean Riordan (2) and an OG.

Well done to Matt Blomeley & Marc Hawley for stepping up to 45 minutes each in the sticks.
