Latest News   BOOM BOOM CLUB - 1000 AND GOING STRONG
23rd November 2014

Starting on 28th November, with a special show to mark the Boom Boom Club's 1000th gig in aid of one of our most popular atists, the great Walter Trout, the Boom Boom Club at Sutton United brings you a month a of unforgettable music that's definitely not to be missed.  From blues to funk, soul to rock'n'roll and plenty of classic pop there is something for everyone.

Seven times Britains' Blues Guitarist of the Year, Otis Grand is the man of whom BB King said "you play like I used to".  Otis is one of many acts to kick-off this musical feast at the benefit gig for another guitar legend, Walter Trout.

Another Boom Boom favourite is Johnny Warman and he returns with Four Bills And A Ben for an evening of great 60s memories.  Ben Waters was described by Jools Holland as one of his favourite pianists of all time (he even played at Jools' wedding) so be sure of some great boogie woogie, blues and rock and roll. Then, as if all that isn't enough (with more besides), we go into Christmas and New Year with a glittering gathering of our  traditional show-stoppers: Absolute Bowie, Rollin' Stoned, Mainly Madness and Cregan & Co.  

What an unbelievable line-up to end 2014.  For more details go to http://feenstra.co.uk/boomboom/ 




Latest News   Reserves in League Cup blow
22nd November 2014

Sutton's reserves, whose game against Tring Athletic was postponed today, have had their defence of the Suburban League Cup ended after being found guilty of fielding an ineligible player in the second leg of the first round tie against Westfield. Steven Ibizugbe played 63 minutes of the game but was still registered with Crowborough despite having left the Sussex side without playing for them. Sutton went in to the second leg, which they won 6-1, with a 9-0 lead from the first leg, over which there is no dispute, and are considering an appeal against the decision to award the tie to Westfield.

22nd November 2014

Jamie White took less than quarter of an hour of his debut to show his striker's instincts with a fine goal that gave Sutton the lead at Hayes Lane today, but U's still ended up on the wrong end of the scoreline in front of a crowd of 1,043. Pierre Joseph-Dubois equalised four minutes later, and after he and Moses Ademola had both hit the woodwork in the second half Joseph-Dubois scored the winner two minutes from time. Even then Sutton could have emerged with a point when Dan Wishart's free kick hit the bar. Full report, with photos, here and Paul Doswell's reaction here.

Latest News   Bromley v Sutton preview
21st November 2014

Sutton revisit the scene of one of last season's most memorable games tomorrow, making the short trip across South London to Bromley (travel here). In March U's stormed back from 2-1 down to win 4-2 and take charge of the race for second place in the table that they held until May, while Bromley finally finished third before, like Sutton, failing to get past the semi final stage in the play-offs. Bromley are again third going in to tomorrow's game, having won three of their last four games, and like Sutton their only defeat in their last five games has come at home to Hemel Hempstead, who won 1-0 at Hayes Lane ten days ago after Bromley goalkeeper Seb Brown had been sent off. That was one of four home defeats so far for Bromley, whose success has so far been based on an unbeaten away record.

Sutton will be without the suspended Michael Spillane and Jack Evans, who have both accumulated five cautions, but Jamie White is in line for a debut after signing from Bristol Rovers last week.

There will be commentary from the game on http://www.ustream.tv/channel/sufctv---matchday-live-commentary

Latest News   Dos gets his striker
17th November 2014

Sutton have signed striker Jamie White from Bristol Rovers after the Vanarama Conference club cancelled his contract. Jamie, who is 25 today, is a former Southampton Academy Player of the Year whose goals helped fire Salisbury to promotion two seasons ago, and whose continued form at Conference level last season saw him signed by Bristol Rovers in the summer.

Paul says that he is delighted to finally get his man. ''I have been chasing Jamie for a month now and our patience has paid off. He is a proven goal scorer at this level, and above, and his willingness to come was so refreshing. Jamie just wants to play football and enjoy scoring again, and hopefully for the next eighteen months that will be for Sutton. I would like to thank Darryl Clarke for the way he has dealt with this, and hope Bristol Rovers gain the promotion they want. Jamie will train tomorrow, and will be available for Saturday's game at Bromley.''




Latest News   Sutton face Hereford in Trophy
17th November 2014

Sutton will be away to Hereford United in the 3rd qualifying round of the FA Trophy on Saturday 29 November. Hereford lost their place in the Conference for off-field reasons in the summer and have been competing in the Southern League, where they are currently in mid-table in the Premier Division.

Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 9 and Lucky Striker
16th November 2014

The ninth Strikers are Key draw of the season duly took place after today's match v Hemel Hempstead.

Tommy, son of Sutton's favourite pugilist, RICKY Boylan, pulled ball 37 out of the purple velvet bag, a ball owned by the syndicate " It's a Dog's Life" whose members are Paul Chalmers, Colin " Juan" Payne, Mark Notton, Nick the Greek and " Duke", the last named of whom stepped forward, worked the crowd and then, sadly, pulled out the wrong key and thus failed to open the safe. The syndicate members present were comforted by the £50 consolation prize which was speedily and wisely invested at the bar.

This means that a minimum of £700 will be up for grabs at the tenth Strikers are Key draw which takes place on Saturday 20th December after the match v Whitehawk plus £50 per League goal scored in the interim by the nominated strikers. On which subject; those nominated strikers are now Craig Dundas, Jessy Reindorf and Billy Medlock.

One other piece of housekeeping; you'll all be delighted to learn that ball 43 does now indeed have new owners in the shape of Ian Baird and Wayne Shaw who have joined forces. Welcome to the game gentlemen!Thank you as always for everyone's marvellous support of this important initiative for the club. Onwards and upwards.

AB

The November Lucky Strikers draw took place in the VPs lounge at half time today.The draw was witnessed by Barbara Tickle and Norman Summerfield.

1st prize £100 Simon Clennell

2nd prize £60 Iris Mackley

3rd prize £50 Adrian Barry

Congratulations to all three and many thanks to the Lucky Striker members for their continued support.

Latest News   Player news
11th November 2014

Sutton have signed left sided player Dan Wishart from Hayes & Yeading. The 22-year-old was suspended for the meeting between the sides at Maidenhead at the start of this month, but is joint leading scorer for Hayes this season. Manager Paul Doswell commented: ''With Dale Binns looking at a long injury absence Dan will be a direct replacement, and he can also play left back if necessary.'' Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick also signed a contract today, and Paul is hopeful of further adding to his squad tomorrow.

One further piece of player news is that, with his three month loan having expired, midfielder Lee Sawyer has now joined Chelmsford on a permanent basis.

There was mixed news at training today, as Paul reports: ''Callum Hart, Ricky Wellard and Kevin Amankwaah all came through a full session, but Jessy Reindorf collapsed during a run and was taken to hospital for tests. It was a scary moment, but we're very grateful to the medical team from Harlequins who were there and were able to give him treatment until an ambulance arrived. We wish Jessy a speedy recovery, and he'll have some tests to see what caused it.''




Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 8
09th November 2014

Ball number 22 was ( eventually) pulled out of the bag in Saturday's 8th Strikers are Key draw after the game v Eastbourne Borough, the ball owned by Ray and Derek Holmes.Sadly, Ray was unsuccessful in choosing the right key, therefore winning the £50 consolation prize for his syndicate.

A minimum of £450 will up for grabs in the ninth draw after next week's game v Hemel Hempstead.NB Ball 43 is now, sadly, a lonely old ball without an owner and is, importantly, not " paid up" to the present draw or to the end or half season. With thirteen draws to go it is therefore available to buy by a syndicate for £220 pro rata (just £44 per person in a syndicate of five or £3.38 per draw). If you're interested in making ball 43 a " live" ball again,contact me via this thread or on uws@suttonunited.net.

Up the U's. Onwards and upwards.




Latest News   Sutton United 1-1 Eastbourne Borough - full report, photos and reaction
08th November 2014

Sutton and Eastbourne shared the points in a hard-fought Vanarama Conference South contest this afternoon. Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick headed his first senior goal in the 8th minute, but after U's had lost Glen Southam to a foot injury Eastbourne equalised when Shaun Cooper turned a cross-shot from ex-Sutton player Gavin McCallum in to his own net. Jerson Dos Santos returned to Sutton's first team as a second half substitute. Full report here and Paul Doswell's reaction here.




Latest News   Football Conference Board Statement - Financial Prudence
07th November 2014

The initiative which the Football Conference introduced six years ago to address the level of crown debt amongst its 68 member clubs recently achieved its ultimate goal when the latest quarter end reports showed zero arrears throughout the entire competition.

Commenting on the success, Financial Planning Committee Chairman, Graham Wood, said, "it has been very rewarding to see HMRC indebtedness in our member clubs fall from a collective high approaching £2,000,000 to a position where all of our clubs are reporting nil arrears. Having reached this point, we are naturally looking to clubs to remain compliant, which of course should be a simpler task than the one just completed".

Chairman of the Football Conference Brian Lee added, "The strength and resolve of the Board over the past six seasons to drive down debt, has unfortunately taken its toll with a number of high profile club casualties. This was a consequence the Board knew could be a distinct possibility in pursuing such an initiative. However, it was a long term objective and clubs were duly warned they may face a severe sanction if they failed to meet their financial obligations".

"As a competition we can no longer leave to chance the long term survival of clubs on short term gambles. It is not fair on supporters of these clubs to see winding up petition after winding up petition brought by HMRC. There is a strong wind blowing throughout the game in support of this welcomed change of direction, so we should all join to applaud each and every club who work so hard to live within their means and rightly budget to only play at the level they can truly afford".

Loan striker Billy Medlock made his debut, as a half time substitute for Callum Hart, who had a knee injury. Dale Binns also went off after just seven minutes with a potentially serious knee injury. Hayes led at half time through Louis Rae-Beadle, who scored a minute after Micky Spillane had hit the post with a powerful 30-yard volley.

Latest News   Sutton United 2-2 Bishop's Stortford - report, photos and reaction
25th October 2014

Sutton had to settle for a point this afternoon after leading 2-0 as Bishop's Stortford defender Ashley Miller scored twice following long throw-ins, the second goal coming in the first minute of injury time. Jessy Reindorf gave U's the lead in the 17th minute, and Glen Southam doubled the lead from the penalty spot after Kane Haysman had been fouled nine minutes before the interval. A two goal lead was no more than U's deserved at that stage, but Miller scrambled his first goal in seven minutes later, and was then on the spot again to rescue a point for the visitors when another Johnny Herd throw flicked off the head of substitute Kevin Amankwaah. Full report, with photos, here and Paul Doswell's reaction here.  




Latest News   Sutton v Bishop's Stortford preview
24th October 2014

After reversing a recent poor run of form with last week's single goal win at Farnborough, Sutton will be looking to build on that success and move to within a point of the Vanarama South play-off zone when Bishop's Stortford visit Gander Green Lane in one of just three league games being played tomorrow as a number of sides compete in the FA Cup 4th qualifying round, the other league games seeing Ebbsfleet at home to Hayes & Yeading and Maidenhead hosting Staines.  

Bishop's Stortford have a good record at Gander Green Lane, unbeaten in their last six league visits, and won 2-1 last season, coming from a goal down at half time with a spectacular winner from Matt Johnson, and indeed it was only when Craig Dundas struck a late winner at Woodside Park in April that U's recorded a first win over the Hertfordshire side in the Conference South. New additions to the Bishop's Stortford squad this week have been ex-Chelmsford and Boreham Wood striker Donovan Simmonds, signed from Tamworth, and midfielder Frankie Merryfield, who has moved from Hayes & Yeading.

Shaun Cooper will make his home debut for Sutton after an impressive first appearance at Farnborough last week, while Glen Southam is available tomorrow but will then miss next Sunday's game at Hayes & Yeading after accumulating five cautions this season.




Latest News   Thumbs Up for success of Non-League Day
23rd October 2014

Commercial vehicle leasing business Vanarama (www.Vanarama.co.uk), sponsor of the Vanarama Conference, and Prostate Cancer UK are thanking football fans for their support, after raising thousands of pounds for the charity on Non League Day 2014. Vanarama, linked with former Southampton FC and England legend Matt Le Tissier to champion the day, and pledged to make a donation to the charity on behalf of every fan attending a Vanarama ConferenceFixture on Non-League Day. After a hugely successful broadcast and social media campaign, a total of 38,675 fans attended across Vanarama Conference fixtures,resulting in £7,735 being donated to the charity - certainly one in the back of the net for Non-League Day and Prostate Cancer UK!

Non League Day started in 2010. Always scheduled to coincide with an international break, it provides a platform for clubs to promote the importance of affordable volunteer-led community football while giving fans across the country the chance to show support for their local non-league side. To raise the profile of the day Vanarama launched a five day broadcast and social media campaign, #thumbsup4nld. Football celebrities and grass roots fans alike were asked to tweet a picture of themselves putting their ‘thumbs up’ for Non-League Day and encouraging others to get down to their local club to watch the match. 

“We are delighted with the success of Non-League Day 2014,” explains Vanarama’s Managing Director, Andy Alderson. “As well as raising vital funds for Prostate Cancer UK, we were overwhelmed with the way the fans engaged with the thumbs up campaign. More than 4,600 unique hashtag tweets and in excess of 30 million timeline deliveries were made for, #thumbsup4nld. Importantly, behind the stats the real warmth, humour and depth of feeling for the Vanarama Conference, evident in the tweets, was heart-warming.

Encouraging growth in grass roots football is vital to our nation’s game. We were just shy of the all time attendance record for Non-League Day. This is our first year of sponsorship of the Conference, so from a standing start we’re really proud of that. Raising thousands for charity to boot makes it even more worthwhile.” 

Mark Bishop, Director of Fundraising, Prostate Cancer UK, said: “Using football as a way of talking to men about a disease that kills one man every hour has proved incredibly powerful. Reaching out through the grassroots game has helped us spread our net further through clubs and supporters. We’re so grateful to the fantastic backing from Vanarama, over a hugely successful weekend. By so generously doubling their donation they are helping us in our quest to save men’s lives”.




Latest News   U's Reveal New Backroom Team
21st October 2014

Sutton United are delighted to announce the appointment of Ian Baird as Head Coach, with Steve Beck now joining Micky Stephens as Assistant Manager.

Paul Doswell is delighted to add both to the Sutton staff. “Ian is someone I have known since school and we are very close. He brings a wealth of experience as a top-flight player with Southampton, Leeds United and Hearts and was also a very successful manager and coach, initially with Farnborough and Havant & Waterlooville and latterly at Eastleigh. Ian is a UEFA “A” licence coach and will bring a number of qualities to the job and I can’t wait to start working with him. I am also pleased to promote Steve Beck from Chief Scout into the matchday set-up. When you lose the quality of people such as Paul Telfer and Steve McKimm, as we did in the summer, it’s vital that your support base and relationships with your staff are replaced and, knowing both Ian and Steve for many years and also with them living close to me, it will strengthen the whole situation for the club.

Both Ian and Steve are committed to this project and will be at the fans’ forum on Saturday”

Latest News   Team up to create Sutton's London Parade float
16th October 2014

Have you constructional, DIY, woodworking or metalworking skills or a source of timber? Might you like to become part of the friendly team creating Sutton's float for the London New Year's Day Parade?

The U's community partners, The Gary Mason Charity, are Sutton Mayor Arthur Hookway's choice to represent the Borough in this major and widely-televised event in our capital but they can't do it all by themselves! Wouldn't it be appropriate if help came from people at Sutton's own football club at The Borough Sports Ground!

The project is for a model London Eye, revolved by hand, to be created in metal. The float theme will be "People Going To Work" so anyone with a uniformed job is welcome to join the float or lend their uniform.

Float prize winners receive cheques for their Mayor's chosen charities and The Gary Mason Charity (not one of the beneficiaries) say rules permit their project helpers (and/or their children) to take part in this massive parade itself. The name or brand logo of any helper or sponsor donating £100 or more in materials or cash will appear on the float.

If you can help in any way, please contact Christine Lindsay at The Gary Mason Charity on 07770 533000 or 0208 647 3000 or at info@gary-mason-charity.org

Latest News   Player and staff news, and team news update
16th October 2014

Click here for the full team news for today's game at Farnborough where Tom Lovelock is recalled in goal, Shaun Cooper makes his debut, Jessy Reindorf returns after injury, Kane Haysman and Jack Evans replace the injured Ricky Wellard and Kevin Amankwaah, and there are places on the bench for reserve team skipper Brandon Johnson and striker Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick.

 

Manager Paul Doswell has completed the signing of centre-back Shaun Cooper, who will go in to the squad for Saturday's Vanarama Conference South game at Farnborough. Cooper, who was 31 earlier this month, played over 200 games for Bournemouth during a seven year stay after graduating from the youth team at Portsmouth. Paul said: ''Shaun's someone I've known for a long time and have watched on many occasions, and he's recently moved back to the south for family reasons. He watched the game against Burgess Hill, but even after that he's agreed to join and I'm delighted. I've been after an experienced centre back to play alongside Charlie Clough, and with Louis John likely to be out for eight weeks with a meniscus tear it's a timely signing.''

Leaving Gander Green Lane, though, are Matt Lockwood and coach Jamie Lawrence. Paul explained: ''In Matt's case the situation of him travelling down and back from Scotland wasn't working. When he signed we thought he was going to be in London much more than he has been, but the situation as it was just wasn't sustainable at our level. Jamie's a victim of the FA Cup defeat - we have to cut our cloth accordingly and can't afford too many staff. With Matt and Jamie both leaving that does leave me without a coach for the moment, but I am hoping to appoint someone I've known for a long time and who I would trust to do a good job.''

Saturday's game at Farnborough (travel details here) will see U's looking to put the past two results behind them and repeat last season's win at Cherrywood Road, where goals from Jamie Taylor and Damian Scannell earned a 2-1 success even though U's played the whole second half a player short after Charlie Clough had been sent off. Farnborough are currently in 17th place, three places and one point behind Sutton having played two games more, and their home form is poor, with just one win in seven games. That was against current league leaders Basingstoke, but they have lost their other six home games, most recently against Bishop's Stortford on Saturday. Farnborough's line-up could include Jamie Slabber, recently signed on loan from Bromley. 

As well as Shaun Cooper, U's can include Michael Spillane after his red card against Bath was overturned, but likely absentees are Ricky Wellard (thigh) and Kevin Amankwaah (calf), while Jo Kuffour also limped out of training on Thursday. Jessy Reindorf did train, however, and should be fit to play a part, while Jack Evans and Kane Haysman are likely to replace Amankwaah and Wellard. Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick also comes in to the squad after some impressive performances for the reserves this season. Paul said: ''I've come to expect to have to deal with injuries, but I'm much happier now than I was at the start of the week. James Bracken had recommended Shaquille to me on the strength of his reserve performances, and I'm hopeful in the next week or so of signing a player who's a proven goalscorer at Conference level, and also still hoping I can bring back the fans' favourite I hinted at in the programme notes recently.''

Sutton's reserves are at Westfield on Saturday, taking a 9-0 lead in to the second leg of the Suburban League Cup 1st round 1st leg tie.

11th October 2014

Sutton were on the receiving end of an FA Cup shock this afternoon as they went down 3-1 at home to Ryman League Division One South leaders Burgess Hill, who recorded their 13th consecutive league and cup win. Scott Kirkwood headed the visitors in to an early lead after Alan Julian had beaten out Greg Luer's shot, and, with Jessy Reindorf sidelined by an injury picked up in training on Thursday, Sutton struggled to create chances before the break, but after Charlie Clough was pushed up front at the start of the second half, U's dominated much of the half, Micheal Spillane's deflected shot bringing them level within three minutes. Clough had a low shot superbly saved, and Spillane sent a shot just too high, but with just over quarter of an hour left a rare Burgess Hill attack ended with a free kick which Luer curled inside Julian's left hand post. Substitute Dann Perry wrapped up the Hillians' place in the 4th qualifying round for only the second time when he rounded off a Luer break three minutes from time. Full report with photos here, and the post-match views of assistant manager Micky Stephens here

Sutton's reserves rendered a second leg irrelevant for the second time this season when they beat Corinthian 8-1 in the first leg of the Suburban League Champions' Cup at Banstead. Christian Kapinga led the way with a hat-trick, Michael Rouse scored twice, with Ollie Sitch, Jordan Oldershaw and Emil Salama also on target.




Latest News   FA Cup preview
10th October 2014

Having negotiated one tricky hurdle away to FC Romania in the previous round, Sutton face another in the 3rd qualifying round of the FA Cup tomorrow when they entertain Burgess Hill Town, who are already threatening to turn Division One South of the Ryman League in to a procession. Ten points clear at the top of the table, they are unbeaten competitively so far this season and are bringing a run of twelve consecutive league and cup victories to Gander Green Lane, a run which began with a victory against Eastbourne Town in the preliminary round of the FA Cup at the end of August. They have subsequently knocked out Croydon and Fleet Town, and most recently progressed in the Robert Dyas Isthmian League Cup on Tuesday away to Redhill. The danger men look likely to be experienced former Horsham and Whitehawk striker Pat Harding, leading scorer in each of his four seasons with Burgess Hill, and youth team product Greg Luer, who scored twice at Fleet and also hit both goals in last week's impressive win at Guernsey.

Sutton take a good recent FA Cup record in to the game, having reached the first round in four of the six seasons in which Paul Doswell has been manager, and overcame Sussex opposition at this stage last season when Jamie Slabber's goal was enough to win at Lewes. Burgess Hill are looking to equal their best FA Cup performance, which came in 1999 when they reached the 4th qualifying round and lost to Hereford.

If a replay is required it will be at Burgess Hill on Wednesday,kick off 7.30.

Sutton's reserves play Corinthian at Banstead tomorrow in the semi final 1st leg of the Suburban League Champions' Cup, kick off 3.00pm




Latest News   Youth team through on night of penalties
09th October 2014

For the second season running Maidstone and Sutton could not be separated after 120 minutes' football tonight, but this time it was Sutton who went through to the final qualifying round of the FA Youth Cup after a penalty shoot-out. After a goalless first 90 minutes, Sutton took the lead six minutes in to extra time when Dan Haines converted a penalty after Aidan Brown had been fouled by the goalkeeper, but the home side equalised with virtually the last kick of the game, another penalty scored by Liam King after he had been brought down by Dinos Kalagnomas. Haines, Brown and Dan Cook were all successful in the shoot-out, and although Elliot Anderson put his kick over the bar, Andy Johnson's save from Ben Swift, after Charlie Munnery had earlier hit the post, meant that Jack Strange was able to secure a 4-2 victory for U's with a confident penalty. Full report here. Sutton will be at home to Eastbourne Borough in the next round.

04th October 2014

Three goals in the last twenty minutes saw Sutton beaten at home this afternoon by improving Bath City, now unbeaten in six games. U's led at half time through Dale Binns, but the game turned on the arrival of Bath substitute Ross Stearn and the dismissal five minutes later of Michael Spillane for bringing down Stearn in front of goal. Dave Pratt converted the resulting penalty, and seven minutes from time Ben Adlesbury gave the visitors the lead with a superb strike from all of thirty yards. Pratt turned in a Stearn cross in the last minute to ensure victory. Full report, with photos, here and Paul Doswell's post match views here.

Everyone at the club would like to extend sympathies to Jo Kuffour, who missed the game after two of his relatives were fatally injured in a car crash on Friday night. 

The reserves won 2-1 at Hampton & Richmond Borough with Michael Rouse and Ollie Sitch scoring the goals in the first half. Report to follow.

Latest News   FC Romania 2-3 Sutton United - full report, photos and reaction
27th September 2014

Sutton are safely through to the 3rd qualifying round of the FA Cup but had to survive a second half comeback from Essex Senior League FC Romania having seemingly been on the way to a comfortable win at half time. U's led 3-0 at the break thanks to two Glen Southam penalties, both following fouls on Craig Dundas,and a fine 20-yard shot from Michael Spillane, but the Romanians gave their vociferous supporters plenty to cheer in the second half as two goals from Ilie Vasile, the second with twelve minutes still to go, left Sutton relieved to hear the final whistle. The draw for the next round is on Monday morning.

Sutton gave a debut to Bedsente Gomis, signed earlier in the week after being released by Southend, but were without Callum Hart due to a family illness, while Dale Binns was forced off early in the second half with a dead leg after a bad challenge from Christi Jacob, who had also conceded both penalties. 

Full report with photos here and Paul Doswell's post match reaction here.

The reserves had no scares at home to Westfield in the first leg of their Suburban League Cup 2nd round tie, rattling in nine without reply. Ollie Sitch scored four and Josh Ozun also scored a hat-trick, while Ben Cotton and Moses Dockrell completed the scoring. Report to follow.

Both Watret and Brown went on to claim first-half hat-tricks, whilst Brown added a seventh and his own fourth midway through the second half. Match report here.

Latest News   Ebbsfleet United 3-0 Sutton United - full report & photos
20th September 2014

Sutton were well beaten at Ebbsfleet in this afternoon's Vanarama Conference South game at Stonebridge Road. After a fairly even first twenty minutes Ebbsfleet scored twice in four minutes through Anthony Cook and Billy Bricknell, and Bricknell added a third seven minutes after the interval. Sutton, without the suspended Glen Southam and injured Jessy Reindorf, rarely troubled the home defence, Jack Evans going closest with a free kick tipped over the bar, but Alan Julian had to make fine saves late on from Charlie Sheringham, who also hit the bar, and substitute Matt Godden. Full report and photos here.

After the game manager Paul Doswell confirmed that long-term injuries have led to both Marvin Williams and Luke Ruddick having their contracts cancelled, while Will Spetch has suffered a setback in his recovery from knee trouble. The full video interview will be here later.

17th September 2014

Sutton's Youth Team found themselves three goals down at half-time tonight at Walton & Hersham, having seen an early penalty saved and had to dig deep to come back with three second half goals to earn a point having been frustrated by a breathtaking goalkeeping display by home stopper Conor Walsh. Dinos Kalagnomas, Jasper Harlington and Aidan Brown scored the goals late in the day for the visiting side. Match report here.

 

Sutton will need to be far sharper at the back when they enter the FA Youth Cup on Tuesday, as they visit Kent side Phoenix Sports.




Latest News   U's Launch First CSR Report
16th September 2014

Good Morning, We are delighted to launch the inaugural Sutton United Corporate Social Responsibility Report.  

This report covers non-financial areas of the club, our social and environmental aspects, and is intended as a companion piece to our annual Report and Accounts.   We are well known for our first team, runners-up in Conference South last season, and our reserve and youth teams won seven of the eight competitions that they entered, but they form only a small part of life at Sutton United. We ran 18 junior teams last season and provide coaching for boys and girls, including players with disabilities, of all ages and abilities. But football, and even sport in general, only makes up a fraction of our community programme. We use sport as the key that enables us to engage with the community, especially younger people, about so many other issues from absenteeism to youth opportunities.  We only need to find a "Z" now !  

We hope you enjoy reading this, our first CSR Report, and if you would like to get in touch with us about the report, or our community programme, or would like to partner with us in delivering the programme, please do not hesitate to get in touch by e-mailing mailto:davef@suttonunited.net

Latest News   Sutton United 4-2 Staines Town - full coverage
13th September 2014

On an afternoon of mixed emotions and fortunes the U's overcame a dreadful start to win with something to spare and will probably wonder how they didn't end up at least doubling their goals tally.

Callum Willock was unmarked to head home after 60 seconds and it got worse for the U's when Stephane Ngamvoulou broke on the left and drove the ball home at the second attempt. Instead of wilting, the U's hit back with goals by Craig Dundas and Kane Haysman, with Glen Southam pulling the strings, and grew stronger as the half wore on.

The second period saw Jack Evans score with a sublime 30-yard free-kick and then run onto a Dundas pass to slide in number four and after that it was a question of whether the U's could add to their total. They really should have but were repeatedly let down by poor passing or control after impressive approach work.

Full report here, and highlights and Paul Doswell's reaction here

In the Suburban League the U's beat Boreham Wood 6-2 at Merland Rise with goals by  Kapinga, Murray, Sitch (2), Rouse and Ozun. Report here

Latest News   Whitehawk 0 Sutton United 2 - full report, photos and reaction
09th September 2014

The U's delivered their best performance of the season so far to pick up all three points with a hard-fought but ultimately comfortable victory.  Jessy Reindorf missed a really good opening after just 5 minutes but that was just about the only real chance of the first half, with the Hawks pinning the U's back for long periods with long balls into the corners.

The second half was very different, played out mainly in the home team's half as the U's grew stronger the longer the game went on. Charlie Clough headed the opener from Micky Spillane's perfect free-kick and Craig Dundas added a second with two minutes to go after the home side had seen Tom Cadmore sent off for an elbow on Reindorf.

U's gave debuts to defender Kevin Amankwaah and striker Jo Kuffour, the latter signed this afternoon. He has previously played for Torquay and Brentford among others.

Latest News   Sutton United 1-1 Concord Rangers - report, photos and reaction
06th September 2014

An improved second half performance saw Sutton gain a point in today's Vanarama Conference South game at Gander Green Lane. Poor enough before the break for manager Paul Doswell to make two half time changes, Sutton went behind nine minutes after the break to Jordan Chiedozie's goal, and then saw Glen Southam sent off on his debut for two bookings. However a minute after Southam's departure Jessy Reindorf, one of the half time substitutes, crashed home an equaliser from a Jack Evans pass. Alan Julian made two fine saves to deny Concord their first win over Sutton, while Reindorf powered a header just wide as both sides could have taken maximum points in the last ten minutes. Full report, with photos, here and Paul Doswell's post-match view here  

Team: Julian, Evans, Lockwood, Spillane, Hart, Clough, Wellard(Haysman), Southam, Dundas, Taylor (Bignall), Williams(Reindorf)

Goals from Ollie Sitch, Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick and Warren Morgan gave U's reserves a 3-0 win at Uxbridge today. Report to follow.




Latest News   Squad news - U's net Southam
03rd September 2014

Sutton have agreed the signing today of midfielder Glen Southam, who captained Eastleigh to the championship last season. The 34-year-old, who was released by Eastleigh in the summer, began this season with Chelmsford and scored against Sutton in the recent 1-1 draw. Capped 13 times at England C level, he made over 200 appearances for Dagenham & Redbridge after coming to prominence at Bishop's Stortford, and has also played for Barnet and Dover. As part of the arrangement Chelmsford have the option of making Lee Sawyer's move permanent at the end of his three month loan. Manager Paul Doswell said: ''I watched Glen a lot at Eastleigh last season and he's a winner and a leader, which I said recently I thought we were lacking. He contacted me during the summer, when I thought we were OK, but since the season started I've decided we weren't so I'm delighted to have signed him.''

Meanwhile defenders Louis John and Will Spetch had gone on loan to Lewes and Tonbridge respectively. Both loans run to the end of September, and in neither case can they play in FA Cup ties. Paul said '' Louis is still very much part of our plans short term and long term, but wih Callum Hart now playing we'd rather he gets a month of good football rather than sit on the bench, and we hope he'll come back and do the good job that we know he can. With Will we haven't seen the best of him yet as he's been injured almost since he day we signed him, but if he can get through a month at Tonbridge under Steve McKimm then he should come back to us ready for the first team.'' U's have also released midfielder Dammy Shitta and winger Claudiu Hoban, while Albert Jarrett is also no longer part of the squad.

The Youth Team are in action again next Wednesday 10th September against Chipstead, 7.45pm kick-off at Banstead.
