Results Round Up – Saturday 27th January 2018.

The 1st XI progressed to the Quarter Final stage of the Surrey Cup today, thanks to a 4 – 1 victory over Woking & Horsell FC.


The first period was pretty scrappy with both teams restricted to the odd decent chance and the interval arrived goalless. However, the Ruts kicked in to gear in the 3rd minute of the second half when a cracking team move enabled the pacey Billy Liffen to impressively fire the OR’s in to the lead.


Top Scorer Zak Graham then struck 2 x delightful goals in the 29th and 31st minutes of the half. The first saw a terrific run and shot double the Ruts lead and his second was a firmly placed header from a Joe Pratley-Jones free kick.


In injury time the Visitors reduced the arrears, before Substitute Gary Wilton promptly made his mark by adding the Ruts 4th goal.


The Ruts will now host Copthorne FC in the Quarter Final on the 17th of February.


The 2nd XI were postponed.


The 3rd XI secured a most welcome victory in their cup match as they beat Shaftesbury Town ‘A’ thanks to goals from Darren Bloomfield, Jon Mapp and Ciaran Moorhouse. Ruts joint player manager Richard Edmonds stated ‘it was an absolutely quality performance in really tough conditions, the Ref was thinking of calling it off at half time’.


The 4th XI drew 2 – 2 with Sutton Celtic FC. The OR’s goals came from Dean Riordan and Sam Park.


The Vets match scheduled for tomorrow has been Postponed.


Best wishes to the Junior Teams tomorrow.

Results Round Up – Saturday 20th January 2018.

The 1st XI match was postponed away and the 3rd XI had no fixture. Nevertheless, the 2nd & 4th XI’s gamed at home both went ahead!


The 2nd XI competed well in a hard fought and generally even contest against Westside Reserves.


The first half saw the Ruts take the lead 3 times and on each occasion they were pegged back level. Ollie Hicks scored the Ruts opener early on, upon his return to action before the Visitors promptly levelled. Gary Wilton then headed the Ruts back in to the lead, before Westside struck back from the Spot after Steve Berry was adjudged to have fouled an opponent.


Berry promptly turned from Villian to Hero, as he then went straight down the other end and headed home a neat cross from Ollie Hicks. The theme continued as Westside then equalised again to make it 3 – 3 at the break.


Both teams had 2nd half chances to score without success and an increasingly muddy and boggy pitch saw the final score remain at 3 – 3.


The 4th XI were without their inspirational Manager Boo-Boo who was wrapped up in bed unwell – get well soon Boo.


However, cometh the hour, cometh the Man, as another club leg-end stepped up to run the team in Boo’s absence and a big thank you to Erol Yilmaz for doing so.


The Ruts were apparently 2 – 0 down with 15 mins to go, which prompted the wily old Yilmaz to step up off the bench to turn the game around himself which he did with aplomb, with goals from Dean Riordan, Hughes and Sam Colebrook leading to a remarkable turnaround and a 3 – 2 win. Marvellous and Well done.


The Vets Match tomorrow has been called off.

Best wishes to any of the Junior Teams whose matches survive
