Latest News   Bognor Regis Town 2-1 Sutton United (after extra time) - full report & photos
10th February 2016

Sutton's FA Trophy hopes ended last night when an extra time own goal by Dean Beckwith swung a tight game in Bognor's favour. Beckwith's attempt to clear a cross from the right under pressure from Jason Prior saw him head the ball past Ross Worner. Earlier Prior had given the home side an 18th minute lead before Stuart Fleetwood won and converted a penalty ten minutes later. Dan Wishart hit the post in the second half of normal time, while U's, who were already without the injured Dan Spence, Craig McAllister and Kevin Amankwaah and the ill Tom Bolarinwa, had to play the last ten minutes of extra time a man short after Jamie Collins sustained a hamstring injury with all three substitutes already used.

Latest News   Sutton United 0 Bognor Regis Town 0 - full report, photos and Ian Baird interview
06th February 2016

With leading scorer Dan Fitchett joining striker partner Craig McAllister on the sidelines the U's were forced into a reshuffle upfront. They started well without getting the breakthrough but were largely ineffective playing against the wind in the second half. So, it's all back to Nyewood Lane on Tuesday and perhaps another 4-figure gate after a crowd of 1258 watched today's match.

Latest News   Youths Fixture Update
05th February 2016

Sutton will visit Raynes Park Vale next Thursday evening, 11th February, in the semi-final of the Surrey Under-18s Midweek Floodlit Cup, with the winners facing either Met Police or Croydon Athletic in the final next month.

 

Monday's Ryman Youth League Central Division fixture against Carshalton Athletic at Gander Green Lane has therefore been postponed.




Latest News   FA Trophy - match preview
05th February 2016

Elsewhere on this site it might refer to tomorrow's Premier League game between Manchester City and Leicester City as a 'Clash of the Titans', but on current form the same could apply to the FA Trophy game that takes place at Gander Green Lane afterwards. Both Sutton and Bognor go in to the game with 100% records since Christmas, both having won eight games in a row and both establishing themselves in the thick of the race for honours at the end of the season.

Bognor's 3-0 over Leiston on Tuesday saw them remain within four points of Ryman League leaders Dulwich on a night when the top four in the division all won, but the Rocks do have two games in hand on the leaders and second placed East Thurrock United. They also have an excellent record in cup competitions this season against clubs from a higher level, having beaten Lowestoft and Oxford City in the FA Cup, and Bath, Maidstone and Altrincham in the FA Trophy, the Maidstone victory coming on the Kent side's 3G pitch, suggesting that the surface at Gander Green Lane will be to their liking. They lost in the 4th qualifying round of the FA Cup 2-1 at Wealdstone but only after Jason Prior, the Premier Division's top scorer until East Thurrock's Sam Higgins overtook him with a hat-trick at Harrow on Tuesday, had missed two penalties.

Sutton will be without Craig McAllister and Kevin Amankwaah, both injured in last week's win against Chelmsford, but Bedsente Gomis, who missed that game due to illness, is fit to return to the squad. Bognor's Ollie Pearce, who was sent off in the top of the table game against Hampton last week, is eligible as his suspension will not start until next weekend.

If tomorrow's game is a draw the replay will be at Bognor on Tuesday.

A reminder that all access to the bars tomorrow is through the Times Square Lounge and there will be no access through the door at the rear of the stand.

04th February 2016

A below par Sutton Youth team suffered their first Ryman Youth League defeat of the season tonight at the hands of Metropolitan Police at Imber Court.

The basic hours would be 09.00 to 15.00. 

The successful candidate must be a friendly communicator but assertive. You should be able to work on your own initiative and be flexible, with the ability to supervise volunteers. 

If this is of interest to you, please e-mail davef@suttonunited.net with a brief cv.




Latest News   Chelmsford City 0 Sutton United 2 - full report, reaction & photos
30th January 2016

Two goals from Dan Fitchett saw the U's return largely untroubled from Essex and three more points secured. Although Ross Worner in the Sutton goal had to make one good early save he was rarely called into actions thereafter and Paul Doswell's biggest worries will be injuries to Craig McAllister and Kevin Amankwaah, especially after the big centre forward's afternoon lasted barely ten minutes. Nicky Bailey enjoyed a commanding return to Sutton's midfield, forming an instant partnership alongside Craig Eastmond.

Latest News   Two More Extend Their Stays
29th January 2016

Kevin Amankwaah and Bedsente Gomis are the latest players to commit themselves to the club for next season.

Paul Doswell was delighted to secure both players for next season. "Kevin has been consistently good this season and has shown in the last two months his quality in defending and also putting in some great crosses from wide. His understanding with Tom Bolarinwa in particular has been a real feature of our play recently and since Kevin has come back from his calf injury, and Tom has settled, we have seen a real chemistry down that side. Kevin is another example of how working hard and being a really good team member has benefitted the club this season."

Bedsi Gomis is another to agree an extension for next season. "We were disappointed to lose Bedsi at the end of last season but understood his reasons for wanting to return to France. He now has his family over here and having his wife and young child with him has meant he's very settled now and is delighted to sign for another year. He really feels that the club can keep progressing and wants to be a part of that. Unfortunately he's been very ill this week with a sickness bug and won't be fit this weekend, but signing the new deal has been a good end to the week for him."

"I think what this shows with these two latest players to commit is a real desire to keep this team together and I'm delighted that Kevin and Bedsi feel the same. This is the best squad in my time at Sutton and I emphasise the word Squad. They work so hard together and their desire and enthusiasm have shone through and even those on the bench or injured have shown great support to the team cause. That's unusual in football but team spirit is vital and we have that in abundance!"




Latest News   Youths Extend Lead at Top
25th January 2016

Sutton's Youth Team extended their lead at the top of the Ryman Youth League Central Division to five points after a hard-fought 4-2 win over Chertsey Town at Gander Green Lane. Reyon Dillon scored a first half brace and Darnel Austin and Callum Phillip doubled the lead before a late fight-back from the visitors. Match report here.

 

Next up for the Youths is a visit to Imber Court as they take on Met Police next Thursday 4th February.

 

Meanwhile Sutton will visit either Raynes Park Vale or Badshot Lea in the Surrey Under-18s Midweek Floodlit Cup Semi-Final, the winners of which will play either AFC Croydon Athletic or Met Police in the Final.




Latest News   The Twelfth Man
25th January 2016

Paul Doswell was delighted with the noise and atmosphere at GGL on Saturday.  " Without doubt it was one of the best atmospheres at a game since I've been at the club,and our home support has really stepped up in the last few weeks. The players have all commented on what a huge difference it makes and the main stand and those behind the goal have been brilliant.

Our mantra of "all in it together" is gaining momentum and the supporters are a huge part of us doing well. To see the bar packed for the Strikers Are Key draw, and the excitement when Dunds pulled out the winning ball, was fantastic and I would like to thank all those who give so generously to this supporter-led initiative. The SAK has enabled me to add at least one top player to the squad each season and that is vitally important for our success. 

Let's now keep this match day experience as the norm and make opposing teams feel like Gander Green Lane is a difficult place to come!! 

On another subject, it was so satisfying to see our community team playing and winning before our game and on the other half of the pitch seeing our under 12's playing Dartford under 12's, and the extra number of people that brings. We are all so pleased with how the 3G pitch is enabling the club to grow and prosper and we're delighted with the positive effect it's having amongst the local community. 

Hopefully we will have a big travelling support at Chelmsford,and keep the run going.

See you all there. Dos




Latest News   Won't You Come Home, Nick Bailey ?
25th January 2016

Sutton United are delighted to announce the signing of Nicky Bailey on a deal to the end of the season.

Paul Doswell was delighted to add Nicky to the squad. "He is a quality player and also gives us another commanding voice in the dressing room. He has trained with us for the last two weeks and has shown a real desire to be part of the squad, he looks fit and now needs competitive games. We sat down after training on Thursday and agreed terms very quickly as he appreciated the club has a strict budget and he hasn't signed for the money!! We just talked football for an hour and Nicky feels he's coming back full circle to a club he's extremely fond of, and is raring to get going. It's so refreshing to see a player who has played at such a good level just want to play football again and as I pointed out to him it's a win win, because if Nicky plays well and stays match fit for a period he will surely have good league clubs vying for his services next season."

Latest News   U's sign up to Armed Forces Covenant
24th January 2016

The Armed Forces and the National League came together last Thursday in a groundbreaking event which saw six of the league’s clubs, including Sutton United, sign up to the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant. 

All 68 of the National League’s clubs have agreed in principle to sign the covenant and, in addition to Sutton, Solihull Moors, Worcester City, Kidderminster Harriers, Dover Athletic, and Havant & Waterlooville signed on the dotted line in front of VIPs and dignitaries from the Army and the National League. 

The signing, which took place at Telford United Football Club after an Extraordinary General Meeting of the National League, saw representatives of all the league’s clubs meet up with soldiers from paired local Army units. 

Major General Richard Stanford MBE, General Officer Commanding (GOC) Regional Command, said the move highlighted the similarities between the football, sport and military communities and was an opportunity to develop closer links between them. 

He said: “It’s all about society, football, and the Armed Forces coming together to support each other. Football changes people’s lives and gives opportunities to people of all ages; we’re in the same business – in the people business – and we believe in maximising talent and sport offers opportunities for people across the spectrum. ’m very glad to say that sport in the Armed Forces is now recognised as a core activity – it’s really important that sport is part of our values and standards. It generates and maintains cohesion and it generates teamwork. Football is the national game and it’s also the soldiers’ game – and this is an ideal way to link the Armed Forces to football, to link into communities, to prevent us from being seen as separate. The Armed Forces Covenant is not about special treatment – it’s about recognising the unique nature of service life and providing a level playing field and together in this we can make a real difference and I look forward to developing closer links between the clubs and you all. 

Mr Brian Barwick, Chairman of the National League, said the new links would allow the clubs and the military to develop projects together which would be mutually beneficial.He added: “It’s a no brainer to get involved in this. I’m delighted our clubs are signing this too for the Vanarama National League. We should commit ourselves to helping the Armed Forces and I think the Armed Forces can be beneficial for us, inspiring people - and our own people can inspire them too – it will be a great partnership. I think it’s important to convert words into action, it generates opportunities and good will for this project. Football is the people’s sport followed by millions, it’s absolutely appropriate that we get involved in something like this. 

Lieutenant Colonel Guy Benson, Project Officer for the initiative from the Army’s Regional Command, said that although only six clubs had signed the covenant at the event, that this was a “symbolic” signing - and that it was hoped all the league’s other clubs would also soon sign up to the project.

The photo below shows club secretary Ray Ward, on the left end of the front row, signing the covenant. Behind him is Captain Derek Gregory MBE from 151 Regiment Royal Logistics Corps, based in Croydon, the local army unit with which we are paired.

 

 




Latest News   Strikers Are Key number 13
23rd January 2016

It was a special day at Gander Green Lane as the team marked Craig Dundas' landmark 400th appearance for the club with an excellent 2-0 win against an in-form Dartford side in front of a healthy four-figure crowd as local support for the team continues to increase with every passing victory.

Sadly the Strikers are Key safe didn't join in the day's carnival atmosphere, remaining obdurate once again despite Craig Dundas stepping forward to choose the ball from the purple velvet bag! Ball 29 emerged, owned by the syndicate, "Merseyside Branch", comprising Neil Allen and Graeme Carter who picked up the £50 consolation prize having sadly selected the wrong key.

It all means that an absolute minimum of £3,200 will be up for grabs in the fourteenth draw of the season after the match v Bath City on 13th Feb.

Thanks to the ever-popular Craig Dundas for conducting the draw today and heartiest congratulations to him from everybody involved with Strikers are Key - he joins an extremely select list of Sutton United players who have worn the amber shirt of our special club on 400+ occasions and always with commitment, passion and pride. No wonder he is such a fans' favourite!

Onwards and upwards we go as this terrific season continues to inexorably gather momentum.

Sutton's Under-18s returned to the top of the Ryman Youth League Central Division as they fired 9 goals past third-placed Leatherhead. Goalless after 27 minutes, the game sprang to life when Callum Phillip slotted home and Sutton flew into a 5-goal lead at half time thanks to two goals from Aidan Brown and further efforts from Reyon Dillon and Jack Strange.

Latest News   FA Trophy preview and squad update
14th January 2016

Sutton will be aiming to qualify for the last sixteen of the FA Trophy for only the second time under Paul Doswell's management this weekend when Curzon Ashton visit Gander Green Lane for the first ever meeting between the sides. Based in Ashton-under-Lyne, east of Manchester, the Nash, as they are nicknamed, have enjoyed a fine first season in the National League North after winning promotion at the first attempt through the Northern Premier League play-offs, and currently lie 11th, but they have reached this stage of the Trophy with victories over two sides above them in the table, away to Harrogate and at home to Nuneaton.

Manager Paul Doswell,who has a full squad to choose from with Simon Downer back from suspension and Dan Spence completing 90 minutes at Corinthian Casuals on Wednesday, is looking forward to the game. ''Bairdy, Micky Stephens and I went to Cheltenham on Tuesday after training and had an interesting evening watching Curzon Ashton play Gloucester City. It's going to be a really good cup tie on Saturday and hopefully with your help roaring us on we can progress to the last 16.'' Supporters are reminded of the slightly amended entry arrangements on Saturday, detailed here, and that any replay would be on Monday at the Tameside Stadium.

Following a conversation with Hampton manager Alan Dowson, Paul has agreed to cancel Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick's contract, and allow him to move permanently. "Shaq is at a very important stage of his development and needs to be playing regularly to progress. With two year contracts signed by Ross Stearn,Tom Bolarinwa and Stuart Fleetwood, the emergence of Tommy Wright, and Dan Wishart also being able to play in the wide positions, I felt that his opportunities with us would be limited. In his time with us he has shown glimpses of real ability, and I hope Shaq can progress and play at the best level he can. We've not shut the door on a possible return in the future,but for now we wish him all the best at Hampton.''Louis John, who played against Crystal Palace on Tuesday, continues his loan with Hemel Hempstead, but we now have a twenty four hour recall on him should we suffer an injury to Jamie Collins, Dean Beckwith or Simon Downer.We will also be recalling him by the end of March regardless,for the season's run in. Paul said''Louis is highly rated at Sutton,and we are discussing a new contract for next season. He has played four games for Hemel Hempstead and Dean Brennan has been very pleased with him in that time.''Nicky Bailey is training with us and also featured against Crystal Palace, but no talks have taken place regarding him re-signing for the club. "He's looked good in training, and his enthusiasm and professionalism shine through. He's a leader, and would add another voice alongside Jamie Collins, and with only three months of the season left would certainly add competition to a relatively small squad. However I have to look at the current dynamic of a very tight knit squad,who for the last three months have improved and gelled as a unit. On the other hand we don't want to be in the position we were two years ago, when injuries decimated us for the play- offs, and we were unable to strengthen from the end of March onwards. His contract with Barnet does not officially end for another ten days or so, so I will see how the next two weeks go.''

Paul also commented on Wednesday's win at Corinthian-Casuals. ''I was delighted to see us progress into the quarter finals of the Surrey Senior Cup, and it was particularly pleasing to see how five of our Under 18s made such a significant contribution on the night. Sam Doswell and Scott Munro did very well, and the senior players also showed a great appetite for the game.''

10th January 2016

The twelfth Strikers Are Key draw of the season went the way of all but one of its 2015/16 predecessors after yesterday's fine win against St Albans City, the safe bulging with £2,700 following Dan Fitchett's hat-trick.

Ball number 2, owned by "The Midfielders", was the twelfth different number of the season to emerge from the purple velvet bag - Bedsi Gomis picked up the gauntlet on behalf of his team-mates but the safe-opening key eluded him, earning the syndicate the £50 consolation prize. Onwards we go to 23rd Jan and the visit of Dartford when a minimum of £2,900 will be up for grabs!

Latest News   Thriving In The Rain
10th January 2016

Club Chairman Bruce Elliott was looking on the sunny side yesterday despite the stormy weather. 

"I think this week we have seen the benefits of some big decisions we made in the summer starting to bear fruit.  Our new pitch was a major step to take but given the amounts of rain we have seen recently I doubt that Monday's game against Lowestoft would have gone ahead on our old grass surface and the St Albans match would also have had a big question mark hanging over it; it certainly would not have gone ahead if the Trophy tie had been played.  We have also seen AFC Wimbledon use the pitch in order to get some training sessions in and Corinthian Casuals will also be training here in order to guarantee some pitch-time."   

"The discounted season ticket scheme was also a gamble but to see over 900 spectators in the ground for the St Albans game was very encouraging.  People know that game will be going ahead on the 3G and the team is playing good football, I don't think we have seen a bad game here this season and we are now top scorers in the league. Hopefully the team can keep their form going and gates will keep rising as the run-in gathers pace."

Latest News   Boss Named Manager Of The Month
07th January 2016

Paul Doswell has been named as Manager of the Month for December for the Vanarama National League South. With his team top of the form table and with no home defeat in 2 months it is a well-deserved reward for Paul, who insists that the recognition is also a reward for the players and his coaching team.

"We have been in a good run of form, but the prizes aren't handed out at Christmas and we need to continue to do well for the next four months and, hopefully, we will have a season to look back on with pride."

The player of the month in the National League South was Dartford's Elliot Bradbrook, while the other two manager awards went to Dino Maamria (Southport) and Ady Gallagher (Lowestoft), and the player awards to Jack Munns (Cheltenham) and Liam King (North Ferriby United).

The U's will next be in action this Saturday (3.00pm, Gander Green Lane) when they entertain St Albans City in Vanarama South.

04th January 2016

The second hat-trick of Craig Dundas's senior career, and his first in Sutton colours, was enough to see the U's safely into Round Two of the FA Trophy.  Dundas opened the scoring midway through the first half after the visiting keeper could only parry a swerving drive from Ross Stearn and when the visitors equalised later in the half through Dundas's former Sutton team-mate Bradley Woods-Garness it took less than a minute for the cult striker to restore Sutton's advantage.  His hat-trick came after the break when Tom Bolarinwa chested Dan Wishart's superb cross-field ball into his path.

Full report, with photos, here and Paul Doswell's interview with SUFC TV here.

The U's will now be at home to Curzon Ashton in the next round.

Latest News   Strikers Are Key Boxing Day Bonanza
26th December 2015

The bumper Boxing Day triple Strikers Are Key draw duly took place after today's 2-0 win against Basingstoke Town. The results were as follows:-

"A day with the team for two people" - a great insight into Matchday preparation - won by ball 26 owned by Gareth Miller.

A grandstand season ticket for season 2016/17 - won by ball 14 owned by the syndicate "One and Four" comprising John Lowe, Mike Harding, Norman Summerfield and Barbara Tickle.

The main draw with £2,350 in the safe. Ball 44 was pulled out of the purple velvet bag owned by the syndicate "Last of the Summer Whine", comprising Mark Frake, Mark Kidd, Bob Budd and Chris Vagg, the last named of whom stepped forward to try his luck with the keys. Alas; the safe remained steadfastly stubborn and the syndicate collected only the £50 consolation prize. This all means that a minimum of £2,550 will be up for grabs in the 12th draw of the season after the match v St Albans City on 9 Jan.

Up the U's!

26th December 2015

The U's went up to second in the National League South table as a good Boxing Day crowd of 932 was warmed up by two clean second-half strikes from Craig Dundas and Tom Bolarinwa. The visitors remain stranded at the foot of the table and although they hit the frame of the goal in the first half that was just about the only time Ross Worner's goal was threatened and the U's thought they should have had a goal themselves when the ball was scooped out from under the bar.

Dundas settled the nerves with a close-range volley and them Bolarinwa crashed home from all of twenty yards to send the majority of the festive crowd home happy.

Latest News   U's Win Community Award
24th December 2015

We are delighted to have been named as the first recipients of a new award presented by the Game Of The People website,  – The Community Chest Award – which recognises the connection between a club and its fans.

http://gameofthepeople.com/2015/12/20/sutton-united-vardy-iceland-and-carneiro-are-our-award-winners/

The Community Chest Award 1- Sutton United 2- Clapton 3- Borussia Dortmund

"Sutton United acted bravely in bringing down season ticket prices in a bid to attract new fans to Gander Green Lane. The princely sum of £99 for a season ticket – tremendous value. A gamble, but it has highlighted Sutton as a club with the community in mind. More non-league clubs should follow suit as pricing below the Football League is unrealistic. Genuine foresight that deserves to be rewarded. Everyone talks of being a 'community club', but few put their money where their mouth is. Hats off also to Clapton for their rebirth and also to the 'yellow wall' at Dortmund."

Latest News   Sutton United 2 Concord Rangers 0 - full report & photos
21st December 2015

The U's took full advantage of their FA Trophy reprieve to earn a home tie against Lowestoft Town in the first week of January. Although Concord tested Ross Worner with three sharp efforts in the first half hour the U's wre on the front foot throughout and took a deserved lead when Dan Fitchett forced the ball over the line after a combination of bar and keeper had kept out a Craig Dundas piledriver. Ross Stearn added a second after the break with a magnificent free-kick and despite the referee changing his mind after awarding the U's penalty the result was never in doubt. Full report with photos, here.

21st December 2015

Sutton's Youth Team leapfrogged Carshalton tonight after a 5-3 victory at Colston Avenue. Dylan Burke-Hamilton gave Sutton am early lead from the penalty spot and an Aidan Brown brace and Reyon Dillon looked to have settled the points before the interval. The home side pulled a goal back early in the second half but Dillon added his second, before slack defending allowed two further goal for the home side to lead to a needlessly frantic finale.

Latest News   Strikers Are Key number 10
20th December 2015

The tenth Strikers are Key draw of the season took place after today's entertaining 2-2 draw with Maidenhead United. Ball number 50 emerged from the purple velvet bag (a debut appearance for the "top of the shop"), the ball owned by the syndicate " Kiddo and Starnsey", SUFC stalwarts Mark Kidd and Graham Starns.

Sadly for them, the safe continued the obdurate defence of its ever-growing contents; the key selected by the pair unable to succeeed in the mission to relieve it of its bounty. Once again, the £50 prize was merely a consolation as the fund increases to a minimum of £2,350 ahead of the Boxing Day triple draw next Saturday. In addition to the regular draw, there will also be the opportunity to win a much coveted "day with the team" and a grandstand season ticket for the 2016/17 season.

Onwards and upwards!

Merry Christmas!




Latest News   Jimmy Hill
20th December 2015

It was with great sadness yesterday that the club learned of the passing of Jimmy Hill, the multi-faceted footballer, administrator and broadcaster.

In 1955 the U's were a solid Athenian League club but a policy of employing professional coaches with professional playing experience would, over the next decade, help transform them into one of the strongest amateur teams in the country. The first of these was Jimmy Hill, then still a player with Fulham, who joined as first team coach under manager Frank Butterworth and brought many innovative ideas to midweek training evenings.  

Jimmy's stay was inevitably brief, he was already earmarked for bigger things including chairmanship of the PFA and, subsequently, the manager's post at Coventry City, but he helped set the club on its new direction.

He will be greatly missed by all in the world of football.

Latest News   Two Sign New Deals
11th December 2015

We are delighted to announce that Craig Eastmond and Tom Bolarinwa have agreed contract extensions till May 2017. 

Paul Doswell was delighted to see both players sign extended deals. "Craig Eastmond has made a huge difference since his arrival and you can see he's really enjoying his football again. In a short period of time he has fitted into the club really well and feels he can progress with Sutton United. Special praise is also due to Jamie Lawrence, who recommended Craig to me and has spent months with him getting Craig physically and mentally ready to play National League South football. It's never easy when you leave a club such as Arsenal and I've seen many young players not be able to cope with the disappointment of being released, but with Jamie's guidance Craig can achieve his football ambitions."

"Tom has also shown in the last two months a desire and ambition to progress and his new deal reflects this. He is another hugely popular player in the dressing room and sees Sutton United as a club who can help him push on with his career." 

"I believe Craig, Tom and Dan Wishart with continued hard work and desire all have the ability to play League football and it would be fantastic if they can achieve this whilst with us."

Latest News   The National League/Poppy Appeal - Captain's Armband
08th December 2015

The National League combined forces with The Royal British Legion throughout November to raise the awareness of their annual Poppy Appeal and to encourage all 68 member clubs to contribute financially to the sterling work done to support members of our armed forces who need care in our communities at this time. 

The Royal British Legion came together to oversee collections and as part of this unique partnership, a specially produced 'captain's armband' was worn by each respective club captain at all matches played in The National League on Saturday 14th November, after which each armband was auctioned off. 

The culmination of the partnership has now taken place and at a special ceremony in Birmingham on Friday 4th December, The National League handed over a cheque to representatives of the Royal British Legion totalling £17,775.45. Recently appointed Chief Executive of the National League Michael Tattersall is pictured presenting the cheque to the RBL. 

Sutton United's contribution, which came from the captain's armband auction and the ground collection at the game against Hayes & Yeading the previous week, was £341.96. 

Brian Barwick, Chairman of The National League stated,"When we set out on this unique enterprise of partnership with the Royal British Legion, I commented upon the strong ties we have nationwide between our clubs and their respective communities. Each community is steeped in history, not only of their local football club but the many sacrifices which individual members of those communities have made over the decades spent in defending our civil liberties and every day way of life. We are more than pleased we can join with many like minded people who recognise that service personnel undertake roles which many of us would not relish. Our grateful thanks in this tangible manner is just one small part of the overall debt of gratitude which we all owe. We hope the funds we have been able to raise on this special occasion reflect our recognition of their difficult task, often with difficult outcomes to face in the years ahead”. 

Responding, Claire Rowcliffe, Head of Regional Fundraising with The Royal British Legion stated. “The Legion’s role remains as contemporary and as vital as it has ever been supporting today’s generation of Armed Forces families and veterans, whether living with an injury or illness, coping with bereavement or finding employment. The money raised through the Poppy Appeal goes directly to The Royal British Legion’s work providing through life support to anyone who is currently serving in the British Armed Forces, who has previously served, and their families and we are very grateful to those involved in fundraising efforts to help us continue delivering our services.”

Latest News   More From The Boss
23rd November 2015

Paul Doswell was delighted with the response to the call to arms on Saturday for as many fans as possible to congregate together behind the goals. "it was brilliant to see so many supporters together on Saturday and the atmosphere was as good as we've seen" 

Paul is also urging as many fans as possible to show their support by wearing the Amber and Chocolate colours that are so noticeable on match days. "We really need to show our colours and spirit on match days and seeing the scarves out and shirts are a real boost when we come out home and away. We now have another unbelievable offer on as well for half season tickets, and having sold 600 during the Summer it would be brilliant if we can add new supporters to this number. We have noticed the positive vibe being created around the club and the impact of our 3G pitch has been a massive part of this. To see a school match at 3pm, 60 kids at a coaching session with Jamie De Cruz at 5-6pm, and then SCR's famous win on a Friday alone is an example of this. We then had SCR juniors Saturday morning, follows by the Community team and the first team on Saturday afternoon, and Sunday saw our juniors play in the morning and AFC Wimbledon play in the afternoon. 

We have much to be proud of in this fantastic non-League club of ours but it's the supporters who are as important as anything else we are doing and we need you all to keep this positive atmosphere going."There is also more positive news on the football front. " Our excellent captain Jamie Collins has signed a new contract till May 2017, as has Dan Wishart who has deserved his contract on the back of this seasons performances.  We are also talking to Craig Eastmond,Tom Bolinarwa and Bedsi Gomis with regards to extending their contracts also till May 2017, which will ensure the continuity of our squad that includes Ross Warner, Jamie Collins, Dean Beckwith, Dan Spence, Dan Wishart, Ross Stearn, Stuart Fleetwood, Dan Fitchett, Craig Mcallister,and Tommy Wright as being committed for next season. On the injury front, Dan Spence and Tom Bolinarwa are improving and we hope to have Bedsi back for our FA Trophy game against Concorde Rangers. Stuart Fleetwood is having an X-ray tomorrow to see if he has broken or fractured his ribs,s o we will have to wait and see with him. 

Hopefully see you all on Saturday."Paul

Latest News   Strikers Are Key number 9
22nd November 2015

The ninth Strikers are Key draw of the season duly took place after Saturday's fine win over Havant and Waterlooville. Craig McAllister's brace brought the total inserted in the safe to the princely sum of £1,800.

This week it was the turn of ball 37 to emerge from the purple velvet bag, the ball owned by the syndicate "It's a Dog's Life", comprising Colin "Juan" Payne, Paul Chalmers, "Duke", Mark Notton and "Nick the Greek".

Syndicate member Duke stepped forward, amid much vocal encouragement, in the quest to choose the correct key and relieve the pesky safe of its substantial contents. Alas, his selection of key failed in the bid; the safe remained uncracked and will now contain a minimum of £2,000 when we next convene on Sat 19th December after the match v Maidenhead United. Whose turn will it be next to face the challenge of overcoming this stoic custodian of steadily increasing funds?

Congratulations to them on reaching the 3rd Round for the first time. Inside we had another successful Gentlemen's Evening with some great anecdotes from Alan McInally and Terry Mancini and our excellent MC, Ian Irving, so thank you to Dave Mathers for arranging another great night. On Saturday we had the Community Team beating Kew Park Rangers 7-4 before the 3-0 win over Havant & Waterlooville in front of one our biggest gates of the season."

"What pleased me especially was to see so many people pay at the gate on the day and I'm sure they enjoyed what they saw and will want to come back. We have just launched a new offer for half-season season tickets, if that's the right phrase, from £49 for adults to just £5 for children under 12; so it's a great opportunity for people who paid full-price yesterday to take advantage of our special offer.

Latest News   Vanarama turns Non-League Day 2015 orange and raises £10,150 for Prostate Cancer UK.
20th November 2015

The UK’s largest van leasing broker, Vanarama has announced its fundraising total for Non-League Day 2015 in support of Prostate Cancer UK. 

Non-League Day aims to encourage fans to watch their local non-league club during the annual international break where many Premier League and Football League clubs’ players are on international duty. 

With the support of clubs, players and fans from the Vanarama National League and support from personalities such as Chris Waddle, Tubes from Soccer AM and comedian David Schneider, Vanarama launched #WearTheWig. The campaign called on the football community to don an orange wig for which Vanarama would donate for every picture posted to Twitter. The hugely successful campaign saw Vanarama partner with Prostate Cancer UK with support from The National League for a second year running.

On announcing the total raised, Andy Alderson, Managing Director of Vanarama said “Supporting great causes such as Prostate Cancer UK along with our other charities is important to everyone at Vanarama. The support from clubs, players and especially the fans has been amazing this year, once again proving that when the football family come together, amazing things are possible”. 

On receiving the news of the fundraising total James Beeby, Director of Fundraising at Prostate Cancer UK said “From clubs, players and fans from the grassroots game, National League and The Football League, to broadcast outlets such as BT Sport, so many people embraced the innovative #WearTheWig incentive on Non-League Day. That helped us raise money and awareness to combat a disease that affects one in eight men in the UK in their lifetime. Football is a wonderful way to reach out to men and their loved ones and this campaign is perfect example of what we call Men United - people joining together to fight a common opponent – prostate cancer. On behalf of all men affected by this disease I say thanks.” 

Full details of the #WearTheWig campaign can be found at www.vanarama.co.uk/wearthewigincluding photos from the day. 

The presentation was covered live on BTSport at the Bromley vs Altrincham game on Saturday 14 November 2015 where Brand Director Steve Mark presented the cheque to Daniel Richards, Senior Marketing Communications Manager at Prostate Cancer UK.

Latest News   All In It Together
16th November 2015

The weather may have been heavily on the wet-side on Saturday but it couldn't dampen the enthusiasm of the Sutton travelling support, much to the delight of manager Paul Doswell.

"I'd like to thank you all for your amazing support at Aldershot and most recently at Bishop's Stortford. We didn't expect the numbers Saturday due to the weather, but your vocal encouragement during the whole game was a real plus to the team."

Now, Dos would like to encourage fans to make the same noise at Sutton.  "Gates are up this season, the matches have all been entertaining, and if we can get the same levels of enthusiasm and noise at home this could be the X-Factor that helps us turn those draws into wins."

"Wayne and Bobby are working hard at getting new supporters to join us and enjoy a real football atmosphere, and many supporters who sit in the stands are getting scarves and showing their support through wearing colours,home and away.  So let's all make an effort, players and supporters, to feed off each other and make a real push to get into the play offs."

Latest News   National League signs Armed Forces Corporate Covenant
13th November 2015

The National League, the competition which covers the fifth and sixth tiers of football in England & Wales, has joined an ever growing list of leading companies and organisations in signing up to the Armed Forces Corporate Covenant and in so doing becomes the first football governing body to do so. 

The National League consists of 68 clubs, arranged over three divisions – National, North and South. The specific signing event took place in the iconic military setting of Horse Guards and involved the Competition itself. Chairman Brian Barwick signed on behalf of The National League and Major General John Crackett, Assistant Chief of the General Staff on behalf of the Ministry of Defence. 

To further recognise the close link between The Army and the game of football two football players from Aldershot Town, Jake Gallagher and Sean McGinty, were present with their Club Chairman Shahid Azeem, alongside soldiers from the London Irish Regiment and HQ London District. 

100 years ago members of these units were among those soldiers who took a break from hostilities on the Western Front to play the “beautiful game” – the First World War Christmas football match has become an icon of how sport can transform lives, even those enduring the horrors of the worst of war. 

Aldershot Town are the first football club from The National League to sign the covenant which was enacted at the same time. It is the intention of The National League to seek pledges from the other constituent member clubs, with plans to sign their individual pledges at the League’s half yearly conference at Telford in January 2016. 

The Covenant has been in existence since June 2013 and to date over 700 companies have publicly pledged their support to the armed forces community by signing the Corporate Covenant. The covenant exists to redress the disadvantages that the armed forces community may face in comparison with other citizens, and to recognise sacrifices made. The Armed Forces Covenant is a promise between the nation, the government and the Armed Forces to treat our serving personnel, veterans and their families with fairness and respect. Corporates, charities and local authorities can sign the Armed Forces Covenant and make their own promise to support the Forces in ways of their choosing.




Latest News   Remembering The Past
09th November 2015

Before the game on Saturday against Hayes & Yeading FC, the new Club Chaplain Leonard Fom gave a short address to commemorate Remembrance Day. This was followed by the playing of the Last Post by Karl Charity and the lowering of the flag of the local British Legion branch who also attended the game and sold poppies. 

The Community Team at the Club is involved in a programme supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund to commemorate key events of World War 1. In 2016 it will be the battle of the Somme, perhaps the most horrific of all battles in that War. The Team are also working on a pilot project to increase awareness of Commonwealth War Graves working with the Big Ideas Company who have been commissioned to manage the pilot programme.

Five current and one former Sutton United players were killed during WW1 and the Community Officer Rob Hardy is completing a project to find out about those players and their backgrounds with colleagues at the Club. The players were: -

Albert Shrubsole, S Trendall, C Smith, William Shrubsole, H Weston and Sam Clover.

Some of the men and women buried in Commonwealth War graves in the Borough include the following in St Dunstan Churchyard, the nearest to the Club’s ground. Cllr Simon Wales Deputy Leader of LB Sutton read out the names. 

Arthur Beynon (31) Sergeant Air Gunner RAF, Fred Horton (28) Private East Surrey Regiment, John Gay (20) Second Officer Merchant Navy. 

Dave Farebrother, chairman of the board of directors, commented on how well the ceremony had been received. "People came out of the bars early and observed the ceremony in silence with great decorum and respect. It was quite a moving experience and I’d like to thank everyone who worked hard to make it happen."

Cllr Simon Wales, Deputy Leader of LB Sutton, commented, "Remembering the past, and learning from the mistakes of the past, is what makes the world a better place. I am very honoured to have played a small part in this act of remembrance".

In order to utilise the information collected, a local studies module is being developed by the Community Team for use by local schools to use as part of their National Curriculum Studies. A section on World War 1 and 2 will be included as well focusing on other key issues from the Club’s history and current issues.

Latest News   Youths Miss Out After Penalties Defeat
09th November 2015

Sutton's Youth Team lost to Carshalton Athletic tonight in the Lucas Fettes Youth Cup after letting a 2 goal lead slip then losing 4-3 on penalties. Aidan Brown and Callum Phillip had put Sutton in front after half an hour but goals either side of half time levelled the scores for the visitors. Match report here.




Latest News   Strikers Are Key numbers 7 & 8
07th November 2015

The pesky Strikers Are Key safe is proving a tough nut to crack this season as two more failed attempts to relieve it of its contents took place after today's game v Hayes & Yeading United.

The ball to come out of the velvet bag in the seventh draw of the season was number 26, owned by Gareth Miller. Sadly Gareth selected one of the three useless keys leaving £1,300 in the safe and leaving him to edge towards the bar with the £50 consolation prize. Ball 39 emerged in the eighth draw, owned by Tony Dunmore. In Tony's absence, skipper Jamie Collins stepped forward in the quest to choose the right key on his behalf. Sadly for Tony, Jamie's choice of key ably defended the safe's £1,500 contents, once again winning Tony the £50 consolation prize.

All of which means that we've had eight different balls emerging from the purple velvet bag this season - 48, 43, 49, 12, 15, 19, 26 and 39 but only once has the safe been emptied. A minimum of £1,700 will be up for grabs after the next home game v Havant in two weeks' time. Surely someone is going to win big soon...?

Onwards and upwards.




Latest News   Sutton United 0 Hayes & Yeading 1 - full coverage
07th November 2015

Despite creating a host of chances, Sutton slumped to a single goal defeat today when Josh Scott scored midway through the second half, just five minutes after coming on as a substitute. U's, who had to make a first half change when Dan Fitchett injured a hamstring, were frustrated by a string of saves by goalkeeper Dan Lincoln, including one near the end when he pushed a Bedsente Gomis shot on to the post. Ross Worner also made fine saves from Luke Wiliams at the start of each half, but was beaten by Scott's scuffed shot after a rebound through the middle of the U's defence put him through. Full report with photos here, and SUFC TV highlights along with Paul Doswell's reaction to the defeat here.

04th November 2015

Sutton's Youth Team lost to the odd goal in seven after extra time in the First Round of the FA Youth Cup tonight, losing 4-3 to Worthing at Gander Green Lane.

Worthing scored the winner seven minutes into extra time. Match report here.

At the game on Saturday v Hayes & Yeading, the new Club Chaplain Leonard Fom will be giving a short address to commemorate Remembrance Day. This will be followed by the playing of the Last Post at approximately 2.45 and a minute’s silence before the game. We also welcome the Royal British Legion who will be selling poppies and other items – at a stall located near to the tea bar by the main stand.

The Community Team at the Club is also involved in a programme supported by the Heritage Lottery Fund to commemorate key events of World War 1. In 2016 it will be the battle of the Somme, perhaps the most horrific of all battles in that War. 

Five Sutton United players were killed during WW1 and the Community Officer Rob Hardy is completing a project to find out about those players and their backgrounds. As a result, the Community Team have also been asked to participate in a pilot project by the Commonwealth War Graves Commission to increase public awareness. There are war graves in Sutton and most are located at Brandon Hill Cemetery. Some are located in St Dunstan Churchyard near to the Ground.

The five Sutton players killed in WW1 were: 

Albert Shrubsole, S Trendall, C Smith, William Shrubsole, H Weston. 

Some of the men and women buried in war graves in the Borough include the following in St Dunstan Churchyard.

Sutton again had to settle for a point despite a dominant second half performance at Gander Green Lane. Oxford took the lead ten minutes before half time through a low shot from Kynan Isaac after a well-worked corner, but just after Dan Fitchett had crashed a header against the bar U's equalised eleven minutes in to the second half when Tom Bolarinwa's cross was turned in to his own net by Oxford defender Jon Arzemendi. Ross Stearn hit the post direct from a corner and Craig Eastmond had a shot cleared off the line by Craig McAllister as U's searched in vain for a winner.

Latest News   Youths Overcome Police in Entertaining Clash
26th October 2015

Sutton's Youth Team ran out 3-1 winners tonight in the Ryman Youth League Central Division at Gander Green Lane in a game of two halves against Met Police. Dinos Kalognomas had given Sutton an early lead but Nathaniel Williams levelled the scores with a well-deserved goal just before half time following a below par performance from the home side. Tom Mallett gave Sutton the advantage midway through the second half and Aidan Brown wrapped up the scoring in injury time. Match report here.

Latest News   The National League/Poppy Appeal - Captain's Armband
26th October 2015

The National League is combining forces with The Royal British Legion over the forthcoming weeks to raise the awareness of their annual Poppy Appeal and how those financial contributions aid the sterling work done to support members of our armed forces who need care in our communities at this time. 

All 68 National League clubs will be working in unison with their local branch of The Royal British Legion to oversee collections to be held at each club and this will be supplemented through a unique partnership, whereby a specially produced ''captain's armband'' will be worn by each club captain at all matches to be played in the three divisions of The National League on Saturday 14th November. 

Each armband will then be available for auction by the respective member club and it is hoped across the whole of The National League an additional £10,000 can be raised to supplement those amounts raised via ground collections and any other individual local arrangements around Remembrance Day. 

 

Brian Barwick, Chairman of The National League remarked,"Each and every one of our member clubs already work within their communities in many varied ways, so we see this partnership as an extension of supplementing the sterling work many do. Raising awareness of the work undertaken by The Royal British Legion alongside the Poppy Appeal will enable more funding to be made available for those who have served their country and need our help. In 2015 we have sadly been reminded only too graphically of the dangers our service personnel face, so we are pleased to be able to work together to enhance the awareness of the Poppy Appeal. May I thank everyone taking part in this initiative for their valued contribution and we look forward to the auction of the ''captain's armbands'' raising even more needed extra funds"

In response to his comments, Claire Rowcliffe, Head of Regional Fundraising with The Royal British Legion stated."Having the support of The National League for this year’s Poppy Appeal means a lot. Funds raised will help us to continue providing vital support to serving individuals, those who are moving on or have moved back to civilian life, and importantly their families too.”

 




Latest News   Aldershot Town 1 Sutton United 0 - report, photos and reaction
24th October 2015

A deflected goal from Rhys Browne, son of former U's favourite Steve, twenty minutes from time decided a tight Emirates FA Cup tie in Aldershot's favour this afternoon. Few in the ground would argue that Sutton's overall performance deserved to take the game back to Gander Green Lane for a replay, but U's failed to make the best of their openings in a game of few clear cut chances, and were made to pay as Browne scored following a swift Aldershot attack.

Latest News   Keep The Faith
05th October 2015

We are pleased to confirm the appointment of Leonard Fom as our new Club Chaplain.

Leonard has lived in Sutton for 10 years is married with 5 children. He is a keen sports fan and enjoys seeing how sports impact individuals, teams and communities.  As a Christian, Leonard loves to see how his faith can impact individuals and community through sport. He recently set up a basketball development/mentoring project on the Loughborough Estate in Brixton at the Evelyn Grace Academy Secondary School.

Leonard currently trains part-time with London City Mission ( www.lcm.org.uk) and is excited coming onboard to get involved at SUFC as the club's chaplain.  

Paul Doswell is delighted to welcome Leonard to the club. "People underestimate how stressful life can be for a semi-professional footballer.  Results and performances matter to individuals every bit as much as  they do in the top divisions but, of course, players at this level also have to cope with the pressures of work, or the lack of it, and having someone available to talk to, confidentially, is always welcome."  

Bruce Elliott added "It's a while since we had a chaplain here but with the significant growth in terms of the number of teams we field and all of our community activities, it's probably overdue.  I am sure Leonard will find his work here interesting and we hope it is also enjoyable."  

Leonard also has his own page on our website.

Latest News   Smoke No Joke
05th August 2015

 flares

Sutton United FC fully supports the National League’s new Smoke No Joke campaign to reduce and eradicate the indiscriminate use of flares, smoke bombs and pyrotechnics at matches.

Flares and smoke bombs disrupt play and people’s enjoyment of games, and the toxins they contain can seriously damage health and/or cause life-threatening injury or concern.  Due to their chemical make-up, pyrotechnic devices can lead to serious health consequences for those with pre-existing medical conditions. 

Clubs have been directed to take the strongest action available against anyone found in possession of a Flare, Smoke Bomb or any other such pyrotechnic article(s), and spectators are warned that a zero tolerance approach will be taken to anyone attempting to bring such article(s) into The Borough Sports Ground

In order to protect all supporters, we reserve the right to search your person and/or effects, and we further reserve the right to pursue legal action, civil or criminal, against any person who contravenes current legislation or our stadium regulations.

To further safeguard all supporters and players we would welcome the receipt of any information which could assist us to deter, apprehend, detain and, where appropriate, prosecute anyone in possession of, or found discharging or being a party to the discharge of, such an article. Courts have a sentencing guideline of three months’ imprisonment and a three-year football banning order. Those prosecuted face not only a criminal record and imprisonment but also many future difficulties, including restrictions on travel overseas.

 

Please support The U’s safely and responsibly this season.
