Russets Club News

Captain's Blog, 7th Mar 2015

Russets followed up last week's clean sweep of victories with another good set of results, although the Ladies were defeated and the 5th XI match was conceded due to lack of numbers, leaving both teams with a challenge to avoid relegation.
The Men's 1st XI, unbeaten in this calendar year, brushed aside struggling Kings Alleyns with a convincing 6-2 scoreline.
The 2nd XI held off our nearest neighbours, Sutton Valence, adding a 1-1 draw to the 6-6 from before Christmas.  In a very competitive game, Russets led briefly in the second half, only to be pegged back by an excellent back-hand strike.
The 3rd XI beat Burnt Ash 4-3, with George Cheesman scoring a brace in his first Russets game for many a year.
The 4th XI drew 3-3 with Old Williamsonians, thanks largely to a hat-trick of penalty corners from the evergreen Nick Burdge.
