An Introduction

Chairman: Ba Omar Jatta
Team Secretary: David M. Gibba
 

In 2008, Sutton United (Gambia) relocated its basement to Lamin Village, Kombo North District just around the outskirts of the capital city Banjul and a major tourist destination. It boasts to be home of Lamin Lodge (a must stop lodge for tourist who enjoy biodiversity) and also home to the Abuko Nature Reserve as well as the Banjul International Airport, the country’s ONLY airport!

The club plays in the country’s National Third Division league locally known as “Nawettan” (This word is derived from the Wolof tongue, one of several local languages and means seasonal tournament).It is the third highest competition in the country’s national football rankings and is divided into eight mini- leagues of twenty teams each in different zones, of which all league champions from the different Local Governing Bodies (LGB) are contested in the Second Division qualifiers and only the best three of the eight teams will proceed to battle it out in the Triangular play-offs. The emerging two best of the three teams are finally promoted to the National Second Division League.

Unlike English clubs, mostly teams in the 1st Division League and a minority few in the 2nd Division have regular team colors, the rest play in whatever is the cheapest strip available when they need to buy new kits and they change kits every season on average as at now. In 2008, Sutton United (Gambia) was donated a kit in the famous amber and chocolate of Sutton United, and in 2009 received another kit donation from Italian giant sportswear company Errea through the Surrey based Sutton United.


Sutton United (Gambia) currently trains at the St. Peter’s High School Field and neither owns a training ground nor a stadium, not even the richest club in the country have a stadium. Scheduled matches are played in parks and on public or community pitches and only a few special ones are played at the biggest stadium in the country, the Independence Stadium. None of the clubs in Gambia has its own web-site.

 

Match attendances have dropped significantly dropped over the Past few seasons and between 100 and 500 regularly go to watch the club’s matches depending on the fixture and the competition, but attendances are never counted. The players are not paid on the contrary; they help in fundraising to cover for some of the expenses of the club, The club chairman and a few of the privileged club members are normally the one’s dipping into their pockets and help keep the club surviving.

Unlike English clubs, most teams in Gambia do not have regular colours. Instead they play in whatever is the cheapest strip available when they need to buy new kit and they change kits every two years on average. For the 2008/9 season, Sutton United (Gambia) FC has been supplied with a kit in the famous amber and chocolate of Sutton United.

Sutton United (Gambia) only has a training ground and not a stadium, not even the richest club in the country has a stadium. Scheduled matches are played in parks and on public community pitches. None of the clubs in Gambia has its own web-site.

Between 300 and 700 regularly go to watch the club’s matches, but attendances are never counted. The players are not paid but, on the contrary, they help in fundraising to cover for some of the expenses of the club. The club chairman is normally the one dipping into his pocket in meeting nearly half of the major club expenses. Players see it as a privilege to play for the club; hence it is a strong community club.
 

The club celebrate winning the league in 2001/2002
