Sales of the special, reduced price season-tickets for next season continue to race ahead even though the marketing campaign does not kick-off in earnest until next month.  This weekend sales passed the £10,000 mark.

Latest News   Eastbourne Borough 1-0 Sutton United - full report, reaction & photos
28th March 2015

An 11th minute penalty condemned Sutton to a fourth defeat in five games at Eastbourne this afternoon. In a game dominated by the strong wind, Ryan Worrell netted the decisive spot kick after Aaron Howe had fouled Darren Lok. Dan Fitchett came close to an equaliser immediately, but U's completed a fourth consecutive game without a goal. Full report and photos here, and Paul Doswell's views here.

The reserves reached the semi final of the Suburban League Cup with a 4-0 win at Redhill, with Jerson Dos Santos scoring twice, and Emil Salama and Ollie Sitch also on target. Report to follow.




Latest News   Eastbourne v Sutton preview
27th March 2015

Sutton head for the south coast tomorrow looking to end a run of three games without an goal against an in-form Eastbourne Borough side (click here for travel details). U's have picked up just one point from those three games, and only Farnborough and Maidenhead have worse records over the last six matches. Eastbourne's form over the same period, though, puts them behind only Concord Rangers and the Sussex side will be hoping for a fourth consecutive win tomorrow. That run has still probably left them too much to do for a late assault on the play-offs, with a ten point gap to Gosport, one of their three victims this month, although Eastbourne do have a game in hand.

Sutton supporters should see a first sight of Louie Theophanous in the line-up, the striker having signed on loan from Farnborough until the end of the season, but Shaun Cooper is still missing through suspension. The Eastbourne side could have a familiar look to it, with Kane Haysman, Jack Evans and Chris Sessegnon all having played for U's this season, and Richard Pacquette and Gavin McCallum also likely to be in the squad.

Having failed to win in the league at Priory Lane in their first stint at Conference South level, U's haven't lost on the ground since being promoted in 2011, with a 1-0 sandwiched by two draws, most recently a 1-1 result last season.

Sutton's reserves are at Redhill in the Suburban League Cup quarter finals.




Latest News   Player movements
26th March 2015

Sutton have signed striker Louie Theophanous on loan from Farnborough until the end of the season, with Jamie White moving in the opposite direction on the same basis. Louie has been among the league's leading scorers over the past two seasons with Staines and Bromley before joining Farnborough earlier this season. Kieron Forbes' loan from Forest Green has also been extended until the end of the season, while Billy Medlock has returned to Tonbridge Angels, again until the end of the season, and scored their consolation goal in the 3-1 defeat at Grays last night.




Latest News   Youths Fire Four Past Farnham to Bring Home the Silverware
25th March 2015

Jordan Watson-Brown and an Aidan Brown penalty gave Sutton a two goal cushion at half time before Dan Cook and Jack Watret secured the silverware despite Farnham scoring a late consolation. Match report here, and photos here.

 

The games continue to come thick and fast for the Youths as they return to Ryman Youth League action next week, hosting Crawley Down Gatwick on Monday and Met Police on Thursday, both 7.45pm kick-offs at Banstead Athletic.

Latest News   Sales Hit Three Figures
21st March 2015

Advance sales of season tickets for next season roared through the one hundred barrier today as spectators continued to take advanrtage of the new, special low prices.

"What is really encouraging" said manager Paul Doswell, "is that sales have continued to come in this evening after the disappointment of today's game. It shows that fans are looking forward to what we hope will be an exciting season."

According to chairman of the board Dave Farebrother, the first day of spring heralds a period of intense work by the club. "We had a very good board meeting this morning. Dos provided a progress report on the 3G project and we also planned the season ticket marketing campaign that will really take off next month. We also have the academy trials starting this week but beyond these 'big ticket' ideas that were announced recently there is even more work going on behind the scenes. This will undoubtedly be the busiest summer we have ever had.  The directors and committee are doing some fantastic work but, of course, all the usual jobs don't go away.  With the officers tied up on a range of new ventures, we would really appreciate supporters stepping forward to help with some of the other tasks we need to get done if we are to hit the ground running come July and August."

Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 18
21st March 2015

The 18th Strikers are Key draw of the season duly took place after today's match v Gosport - £1,950 was the sum up for grabs.

Sadly, Dan Taylor, syndicate leader of "Lennie's Size 9s", was unable to choose the correct key after ball number 45, owned by him and friends and countrymen, Bob Bone, Ian Bell and Dave Burgess, had been pulled out of the purple velvet bag. £50 found its way to Taz for his and his squad's disposal by way of consolation.This all means that a minimum of £2,150 will be inserted into the SAK safe for us all to try again after the match v Chelmsford in two weeks' time.

See you then.

Latest News   Bishop's Stortford 0-0 Sutton United - full report, reaction & photos
14th March 2015

Sutton were unable to build on a promising start this afternoon as they were forced to settle for a goalless draw at Woodside Park. Inside the first half hour debutant home goalkeeper James Bransgrove made two good saves from Ricky Wellard, and both Craig Dundas and Dan Fitchett had goalbound shots blocked in the six yard box, but U's found chances harder to create in the second half and it was the home side who came closest to a winner when Sheldon Sellears hit the post. Full report and photos here, and the views of assistant manager Micky Stephens here.

A first half goal from Terry Murray gave the reserves a 1-0 win against Tring Athletic at Banstead. Report to follow.




Latest News   Bishop's Stortford v Sutton preview
13th March 2015

Sutton will hope to put last week's performance against Hayes & Yeading behind them tomorrow with a visit to Bishop's Stortford (travel details here) , kick off 3pm. The home team goes in to the game looking to win a third consecutive game for the first time this season after an impressive win at Wealdstone last week was followed by a 2-2-1 success against Staines on Tuesday which put them seven points clear of the relegation zone - only their third home league win of the season. 

Woodside Park was a venue on which U's had struggled until last season, when a late winner by Craig Dundas saw them return with their first victory since Bishop's Stortford moved to the ground. Glen Southam misses out on a return to his former club as he serves the last game of his suspension, while Bishop's Stortford could include midfielder Ben Marlow, who had a spell on loan there from West Ham earlier in the season and who rejoined the club this week.

Sutton's reserves are at Banstead tomorrow, playing a Tring Athletic side that they beat 4-0 a fortnight ago in a game that saw three players sent off.

Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 19 and 20
07th March 2015

Our thanks to the inimitable Tim Vine for throwing himself so fully into today's itinerary, including a tremendous, memorable execution of the double Strikers are Key draw.

In the first draw, in which £1550 was up for grabs, ball number 19 was pulled out of the purple velvet bag by Tim, the ball owned by Dave Smith's "Naught Colonials". Dave, a stalwart Sutton fan, now residing in Adelaide, was not available to select the key in Sutton today (!); therefore Damian Scannell stepped forward, and, once more was unable to pick out the right key for my erstwhile centre half partner! £50 consolation prize is winging its way over to Australia. Well done and thanks Dave!

In the second draw, in which £1750 was up for grabs, ball number 42 was pulled out of the velvet bag, the ball owned by the syndicate " Jim's Persistence" comprising Jim Good, Dave Harrison, Mick Radburn, Jack Ball and Chris Hobbs. In the absence of any syndicate members in the Players' Bar tonight, Damian's run of unsuccessful key selections continued, winning " Jim's Persistence" the £50 consolation prize.

This all means that a minimum of £1950 will be in the safe come Saturday week after our game v Gosport. The SAK safe is proving stubborn to crack in recent weeks - we've now had 17 draws this season and the safe has only been opened on 4 occasions.

Maybe next time....? Someone is going to win big soon!

SUTTON UNITED - UNITED WITH THE COMMUNITY




Latest News   Sutton United 1-2 Bromley - full report & photos
04th March 2015

Bromley strengthened their position at the top of the Vanarama Conference South table last night but only after Sutton had dominated the first hour of the game, leading through Bedsente Gomis's 29th minute goal. Former Sutton striker Jamie Slabber turned the game round with two close range finishes, the first after Aaron Howe had failed to hold a high cross, and the second from a whipped in left wing corner. Sutton gave a debut to midfielder Keiron Forbes, signed on loan until the end of the season from Forest Green. Full report with photos here.

The reserves won 3-0 at Corinthian Casuals with two goals from Emil Salama and one from Jerson Dos Santos. Report to follow.




Latest News   U's Announce Three Big Initiatives
04th March 2015

The Fans’ Forum after the Bromley game saw the club announce THREE major news stories that mean that there has never been a more exciting time to be a supporter of this great club.

Initially joining Bruce Elliott and Paul Doswell on the “top table” was Marvin Williams, who confirmed the launch of the Sutton United Football Academy, in partnership with NESCOT and Ultimate Football Academy.  We are thrilled to welcome Marvin back to The Lane as the driver behind the new Academy, bringing opportunities to youngsters in the community to realise their potential on a football pitch and receive a high quality education. Trials will be held on 24th and 25th March.

We were also delighted to announce that, subject to planning consent, we will be looking to install a new, state of the art 3G pitch at our home in Gander Green Lane to replace our existing ageing and tired pitch, the aim being for it to be in situ for the start of next season. This is an extremely exciting development for Sutton United Football Club, enabling us to bring our reserve and youth teams back home and become a focus for ALL of our teams, from the youngest juniors through to the oldest veterans and for it to be fully utilised by the local community and to really establish Gander Green Lane as the fulcrum of leisure provision for the entire community within the Borough. We will keep everyone updated regarding the progress of this initiative as the weeks unfold.

Finally, the third announcement caused maybe the biggest ripples in the room.  Increasing attendances is a key priority for the club and we are excited to announce new sensational season ticket prices for the 2015/16 season. For the first one thousand applicants the price of an adult season ticket for next season, for all our home League games and pre - season friendlies, will be an amazing £99 ( that's just £4.71 per game) with further reductions for Concessions (£75), Teens (£20) and Kids (£10). Click HERE to find out more about this tremendous offer and how to book.

Furthermore, the club will shortly be "partnering" with selected local sports organisations and businesses and offering five hundred season tickets to their members at the special Concession price above of just £75 (that's just £3.15 per game). We are delighted to announce that all existing season ticket holders, VPs, Shareholders, Supporters' Club and SUST members will be eligible for this concessionary rate. Download the application form HERE and reserve your ticket for this limited availability offer NOW! These are exciting times for everyone involved at Sutton United FC. We now need YOUR help to ensure the word is spread far and wide and to fully support these initiatives by ensuring the promotion of these offers is comprehensive. It's time for us to really demonstrate that we are truly " in it together" as we look to take this special club into the next stage of its illustrious history. 

We have  a mass marketing campaign planned through April, May and June but YOU can help NOW by picking up flyers to distribute from Adrian Barry or Tony Dunmore or at the main office, or you can forward the links to our website and season ticket page to your friends and colleagues. www.suttonunited.net/seasontickets




Latest News   Sutton Seal Semis Spot with Spot-Kick Success
02nd March 2015

Sutton's Youth Team beat Metropolitan Police 4-3 on penalties tonight to seal their semi-final spot in the Lucas Fettes Youth Cup following a 2-2 draw after 90 minutes.

Match report here.

 

Sutton will face Hampton & Richmond Borough in the semi-final as they bid to reach the final for the fourth successive season, date to be confirmed.

Latest News   Staines Town 0 Sutton United 1 - full report with photos
28th February 2015

The U's completed a league double over their struggling Middlesex neighbours but had to rely on a late strike by Ricky Wellard with less than five minutes left after the home defence cleared a succession of chances off the line, with home keeper Jack Turner frequently proving a thorn in Sutton's side.  It was a strange game for injuries too, with Damian Scannell pulling up with what looked like a hamstring strain to be replaced by Jamie White, himself coming back earlier than expected from a similar injury. White himself went off later to be replaced by Wellard, who hurt himself in the act of scoring the winner and was replaced by Dan Wishart.

Full report and photos here.

Sutton's reserves took the field for the first time this year and won 4-0 at Tring Athletic with two goals from Emil Salama and one apiece from Michael Rouse and Jerson Dos Santos, the latter a penalty. Full details of a game which saw three players sent off to follow.

26th February 2015

We're pleased to announce that we are throwing open the gates at Gander Green Lane on Saturday 7 March for the visit of Hayes & Yeading United, with spectators being admitted to the game free with the option of making a voluntary contribution once they are inside the ground. You may remember we ran a similar and hugely successful day last season when Basingstoke were the visitors, with an attendance of over 2,000 watching U's 4-0 win, and as on that occasion the club will be helped by popular comedian Tim Vine, who will be at the club throughout the afternoon and is hoping to play an active part in the entertainment. 

The club's chosen charity for the last two years, St Raphael's Hospice in North Cheam, will also be present and after the game Tim Vine will be challenging supporters to darts matches, with proceeds raised from that going to the hospice. Chairman Bruce Elliott said: ''It was a superb day when we played Basingstoke last season and we hope for something similar next Saturday. Tim Vine has become a good friend of the club, and we are very grateful that he has agreed to give up his time again to help us and St Raphael's.''

We are delighted to announce the launch of the inaugural 16-18 Sutton United FC Academy, in association with Ultimate Football Academy, which is run by former Sutton striker Marvin Williams, and NESCOT, one of the South East's top colleges, where students will work towards a BTEC in Sport. At Sutton United, the students will have the opportunity to work alongside UEFA licensed coaches, while the club is applying to play in the Football Conference Youth Alliance League. Trials will be held on Tuesday 24 March and Wednesday 25 March at Gander Green Lane, between 6pm and 8pm. 

The scheme will also give further opportunities to local young footballers already playing within the existing thriving Juniors set-up and beyond to continue their development, enabling players to feed into James Bracken's first-class youth and reserves set-up with the ultimate goal of first-team football. 

Chairman Bruce Elliott said : ''The club is delighted to be setting up this Academy, and linking up with NESCOT who will provide the players with a good education towards their qualification'', while Paul Doswell commented: ''It's a great step forward for the club and I'm looking forward to seeing the young players coming in to the club, which will give them great facilities to train in.'' Marvin Williams, who scored 17 goals in 65 appearances in his career with Sutton, said: ''There are exciting times ahead. It's great to be in partnership with a football club where I spent two happy years, and such a prestigious college as NESCOT.'' 

The college also welcomed the development, with Head of College Cliff Hall commenting: “We are proud to be going into partnership with Sutton United FC. This new academy will give young people a great all-round education, enabling them to gain their formal qualifications at Nescot while developing and polishing their football skills with Sutton United FC.”

Latest News   Margaret Millington
23rd February 2015

We were very sorry to learn of the passing last week of long-time supporter Margaret Millington.

Margaret was born with amber and chocolate in her veins, her father Freddie Buck served as the club’s Treasurer and as Secretary of the Supporters’ Club and was instrumental in setting up and undertaking the door-to-door collection that kept the club alive in the 1930s and ensured that his daughter watched her first Sutton game from her pram.  More recently Margaret and her husband, Doug, acted as officers for the Vice-Presidents’ Association and could often be seen serving the half-time tea on match days and they jointly ran the 200 Club for many years. The family connection was continued by son Steve, who served as Supporters’ Club Chairman in the 1990s.

We extend our deepest sympathies to Doug, children Steve and Ruth and to all of the family.

The Vanarama Conference is breaking new ground this season in the marketing of their showcase event known officially as the 'Vanarama Conference Promotion Final', to be staged at Wembley Stadium connected by EE on Sunday 17th May at 2pm.

As part of a combined new style approach, the Football Conference has teamed up with Vanarama their Title Sponsor, to bring a number of innovations to the end of season climax. With additional input from EE, the lead partner of Wembley Stadium a number of fantastic offers and savings will be made available to attract support to attend the Promotion Final from all areas of the game, which will form part of the newly named 'Vanarama BIG Day Out'. The primary move this season is to make the day more memorable by creating an electric party atmosphere for all footy fans let alone fans of the two finalists; and above all at an affordable family price. A voucher guarantees you a ticket with nothing more to pay. How good is that?

Every member club of the Football Conference has made available a special voucher offer to their fans of massive reductions on ticket prices for the Promotion Final. There will also be competitions and other opportunities to win tickets through Vanarama and EE and at Wembley there will be pre match entertainment for all the family and a major chance for a footy fan to win money, not only for himself  but his own Conference Club. And we are talking BIG!

Further detailed updates will be made public via member clubs, all sponsors and associated partners, either through website information bulletins or social media channels (networking messages aided by infographics). So keep an eye out over the closing months of the season as the race to the Football League takes closer order as the competition really hots up at the top of the Vanarama Conference. Typically a family of four could save £86 just by being first in the queue for a voucher. Can you afford to miss out on that sort of offer?

The discounted voucher offer closes at the end of February, after which the price for the vouchers will be £20 for adults and £10 for juniors, so to get yours through Sutton United please email honsec@suttonunited.net or telephone Ray Ward on 07908 611354.

Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 15
14th February 2015

The fifteenth Strikers are Key draw took place in the Players' Bar after today's match v Weston-super-Mare. Ball number 14 was pulled out of the purple velvet bag, a ball owned by the syndicate " One and Four" comprising John Lowe, Barbara Tickle, Norman Summerfield, Don Strange and Mike Harding.

In their absence this evening, the indomitable Damian Scannell stepped forward in his ever- popular quest to choose the right key and open the safe for the syndicate in question, a safe which, this week, thanks to Dan Fitchett's goal today, contained £1,350.Sadly, Damian's pursuit of the correct key is fast taking on Sisyphean proportions - today's futile attempt thereby winning the syndicate members the £50 consolation prize. This all means that a minimum of £1,550 will be up for grabs after next week's match v Bromley.

N.B. The Strikers are Key draw will take place next Saturday 21st Feb amid the three exciting announcements being made by Dos and the Board at 5:15pm. Make sure you are there to hear some truly great stuff!

Onwards and upwards. 

Up the U's!

10th February 2015

Manager Paul Doswell is delighted that Bedsente Gomis has signed a contract to keep him at Sutton until the end of next season. The French-born midfielder joined U's in September and has become an increasingly influential member of the midfield. ''Betsy's form has steadily improved'', said Paul, ''and now his wife and child have moved over to this country and are with him in Hampshire he's much more settled. We're looking forward to him playing a big part in what we're trying to do.''

Meanwhile striker Billy Medlock has joined Metropolitan Police on a month's loan. As Paul explaned: ''Billy had a couple of weeks out with an ankle injury and with Dan Fitchett coming in and doing so well and Jamie White fit again it's better that he goes out on loan for a month where he'll play half a dozen games on a good pitch in a side that plays good football, and then comes back to us as we're still keen to work with him and see his scoring ability.''

Latest News   Vanarama Conference South Player of the Month - Dan Fitchett
06th February 2015

Sutton United and Vanarama are delighted to announce that the winner of the Vanarama Conference South Player of the Month award for January is Dan Fitchett.

  

On the announcement of the award Dan said, “I'm delighted to win the award. It's gone well for me since I joined Sutton, and hopefully I can keep scoring in the sixteen games we've got left and put us in a strong position.” 

The official awards panel said, “January was an amazing month for the 23 year old striker, who was released by near neighbours Aldershot Town when the transfer window opened, despite scoring for the Shots in the FA Cup against Rochdale. This followed on from Dan being part of the fallout at Salisbury City, so when Sutton came along with the opportunity to play regular first time football, he grabbed the chance. In so doing in just three matches he has helped United to move from mid-table safety to put in an outside challenge for possible promotion. In such a short space of time he has scored four goals as the first instalment to repay the club handsomely.” 

Congratulations to Dan on winning this award and we wish him the very best for the rest of the season. 

Awards panel consists of representatives from the Football Conference, Media and Vanarama.
