Following Saturday's 1-0 win at Staines, the U's have injury doubts over Damian Scannell, Jamie White, Ricky Wellard, Dan Wishart and Aaron Howe but hope to be able to include new loan signing Kieron Forbes, signed from Conference National outfit Forest Green Rovers.

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.

Latest News   Staines v Sutton preview
27th February 2015

After being left idle by the weather last Saturday, Sutton return to action tomorrow with a visit to the side currently propping up the Vanarama Conference South table. Staines currently lie twelve points adrift of the rest of the division having won just five games this season, and although a mid-January win against Gosport hinted at a revival their next home game saw them let in six without reply against Bromley. They may have thought they were on the way to victory at Sutton in September when they raced in to a two goal lead, but U's struck back to win 4-2 with Jack Evans scoring twice.

Having serves his two match ban for ten bookings, Glen Southam begins his four match suspension for his red card at Concord, while Jamie White is likely to be out with a hamstring injury.

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.

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.''

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.

Latest News   Sutton v Bromley preview
20th February 2015

Sutton will be hoping for the biggest crowd of the season at Gander Green Lane tomorrow when Vanarama Conference South leaders Bromley are the visitors (kick off 3pm). With more local opposition having dropped in to the Ryman League in recent years it's the closest U's get to a local derby, and with Bromley having taken over at the top of the table on Tuesday with a single goal victory at Ebbsfleet it has the look of the division's top match of the day, certainly in the eyes of the Non-League Paper whose feature match it will be.

Bromley have an excellent away record, winning ten of their fourteen games on the road and losing just the one, at Whitehawk last month. Since then Bradley Goldberg, a key contributor last season when Bromley finished third in the table and like Sutton missed out in the play-off semi finals, has rejoined the club while Alan Julian is likely to keep goal tomorrow having moved from Sutton a month ago. Jamie Slabber is also in the Bromley squad while Damian Scannell, who returned to Sutton on loan last month, is eligible to play for U's tomorrow. Glen Southam remains suspended.

Don't forget that Paul Doswell and Bruce Elliott will be hosting a meeting with supporters after the game in the Vice Presidents' Lounge, while the lunchtime football on BT Sport tomorrow, showing live in the club bars, is the Conference clash between Nuneaton and Kidderminster.

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!

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.

It will assist to make the incoming Chairman's position much easier, in as much that our partnership with Vanarama is blossoming and that must be really positive for my successor to know already. Andy and his staff have in return been very complimentary in how member clubs and our staff and my fellow directors have responded to their open and often innovative sponsorship. I am sure I speak on behalf of all connected with our Competition that we look forward to our relationship continuing even past 2015/16". 

Vanarama’s partnership with The Football Conference was negotiated by sports marketing agency SportQuake who have been instrumental in the innovative and successful national sponsorship campaign executed to date. SportQuake specialise in helping consumer brands and rights owners to deliver commercial and cultural value through sport. This year SportQuake has already completed over 100 football partnership deals including major transactions with all 20 English Premier League clubs.

Latest News   Sutton v Farnborough preview
30th January 2015

After a run of seven points from three games against sides in the higher reaches of the Vanarama Conference South table, Sutton will hope to continue their improvement tomorrow when the visitors to Gander Green Lane are Farnborough, currently one place off the bottom of the table. The Hampshire side have lost their last four away league games, conceding 21 goals in the process, but enjoyed a decent run in the FA Trophy which ended last week with a home defeat against North Ferriby United, and Sutton's defence will be wary of the threat posed by Louie Theophanous, one of the best strikers in the division over the past two seasons. He was on target in their last league win, a 2-0 defeat of high-flying Whitehawk in December, and has eleven goals to his credit so far this season.

Victory would give Sutton a second double of the season, after Nick Bignall's last minute strike was the only goal of the game at Cherrywood Road in October, while last season the sides battled out an entertaining 3-3 draw, U's trailing 2-1 but then going 3-2 up before the visitors scored a late equaliser.

U's have injury doubts over Craig Dundas and Damian Scannell, while Farnborough have Darryl Siaw available again after suspension.

Before the game you can watch the lunchtime Premier Divison game between Hull City and Newcastle United on television at the club.

Sutton's reserves play Carshalton at Banstead tomorrow, kick off 3pm, ahead of their Champions' Cup final 2nd leg against Uxbridge, which will be played at Gander Green Lane on Monday.




Latest News   Gary Mason Charity - Storage space wanted
29th January 2015

The Gary Mason Charity urgently needs a small lock up/garage or storage space for the wood that made up the Mayor of Sutton's float in this year's London New Year's Day Parade. This is the second year the charity has represented the London Borough of Sutton and come 6th in the London Boroughs Competition, winning £2,000 for the Mayor's chosen charity.  

The float was constructed over several months using wood and board that had to be purchased. Much of it was cut to shapes and painted as buildings, vehicles and a London Eye! It is far too good to get rid of. We now need storage space for the wood so it may be reused later in the year to construct the entry for 2016.   

If you can possibly help us with a space for about 8 ft x 4 ft x 6 ft it would save it being scrapped.   You would not only be helping us but also the Mayor's Charities as without an entry in the London New Year's Day Parade no prize would be won.  

Please help if you possible can, contact Christine Lindsay 07770 533000.

Latest News   Hemel Hempstead v Sutton preview and news
27th January 2015

Sutton manager Paul Doswell takes charge of his 400th game for the club this evening as Sutton play only their third midweek Vanarama Conference South game of the season at Hemel Hempstead, on whose ground U's were knocked out of the FA Trophy just before Christmas by a late disputed penalty, just a month after an even later, but still disputed, penalty had given last season's Southern League champions a 2-1 win at Gander Green Lane in the league. Hemel's own FA Trophy campaign ended on Saturday with a home defeat against Torquay, but they have enjoyed a good first season at this level and are currently in 9th place, six points above Sutton having played one game fewer, but Sutton have impressed in the last two games, taking four points from games against Ebbsfleet and Havant, and can travel to Vauxhall Road in good heart.

Travel details are here, and supporters travelling by train may want to give themselves plenty of time in case of delays between Euston and Hemel Hempstead following this morning's disruption due to electrical supply problems. As at lunchtime, delays were still being experienced.

Latest News   Youth County Cup Match Off

Latest News   Havant & Waterlooville 2-2 Sutton United - full report, reaction & photos
24th January 2015

Dan Fitchett scored twice in six first half minutes to put Sutton in charge of this afternoon's Vanarama Conference South game at Westleigh Park, the first after Ricky Wellard's shot had come off the post and the second after a defensive mistake, and when Nic Ciardini was sent off for a foul on Glen Southam six minutes after half time U's hopes looked to have been boosted further, but a hotly disputed penalty three minutes later, when Damian Scannell was penalised for what looked a perfectly fair challenge, allowed Havant back in to the game and a brilliant shot from substitute JJ Hooper four minutes after he had come on brought the scores level, after which neither side could force a winner in an entertaining game played on a difficult pitch. Full report and photos here, and Paul Doswell's verdict here




Latest News   Havant & Waterlooville v Sutton preview and squad update
23rd January 2015

After one morale-boosting win against play-off hopefuls last Saturday, Sutton will be looking for another tomorrow, visiting West Leigh Park to take on Havant & Waterlooville, (click here for travel details - note there are no trains to, from or through Wimbledon tomorrow) one of four sides separated by just a point in the play-off zone behind leaders Boreham Wood, who bolstered their own hopes this week with the signing of Daryl McMahon from Ebbsfleet.

Widely regarded as championship contenders before the season started, having narrowly missed out on the play-offs last season, Havant started poorly with four defeats in their first six games, but since then have suffered only three more defeats as they have climbed the table steadily, while they also enjoyed an FA Cup run which ended against Preston in front of the live television cameras at West Leigh Park.

One of those four early defeats was at Sutton in August, where Jessy Reindorf scored the only goal of the game in the first half, although U's win was mainly due to a sensational performance from Tom Lovelock as Havant piled on the pressure late on. Lovelock won't be standing in their way tomorrow, having been one of three players released by Paul Doswll this week - he has joined Chelmsford. In goal instead will be a former Havant player, Aaron Howe, who made an assured debut against Ebbsfleet last week - another former Hawks favourites, Jamie Collins, should also line up against the team he captained in the FA Cup at Liverpool.

Also missing from the squad tomorrow will be goalkeeper Alan Julian and defender Jack Evans, who have both left the club this week, Julian joining Bromley and Evans moving to Eastbourne Borough, where he will be joined by Chris Sessegnon, who was recalled from his loan by Ebbsfleet before moving to the Sussex club.

Sutton have visited West Leigh Park on seven previous occasions, winning three, drawing one and losing three. Last season saw a remarkable 5-0 victory with two goals from Jamie Slabber and one apiece from Kane Haysman, Anthony Riviere and Craig Dundas.

Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 13
18th January 2015

There was great excitement in the Players' Bar following the team's excellent victory against Ebbsfleet United as the returning Damian Scannell conducted the thirteenth Strikers are Key draw of the season.

Damian pulled ball number 47 out of the purple velvet bag, the ball owned by " Chargo and Si", Charlotte Granville- Overton and Simon Longman. In their absence yesterday, Damian selected a key for them to try to open the safe but maintained his unfortunate 100% track record of choosing unsuccessfully. "Chargo and Si" win the £50 consolation prize, meaning a minimum of £850 is up for grabs at the next draw, on Saturday 31st January, which will take place at 5:15pm after the match v Farnborough.

Up the U's!




Latest News   Amber Planet
18th January 2015

The internet is a great tool for communication: Facebook, Twitter, blogs, message boards; all make it so easy to give news or make our thoughts known far and wide in a blink of an eye. There is no doubt that modern media are amazing aids for communication, no more waiting for tomorrow's newspaper or hoping LBC remember to read out the result, no matter where you are you can find out the score for a game almost as soon as the ball goes into the net.  

These tools give almost everyone the power to tell anyone who cares to know how great the goal was, or how the keeper really should have saved it or that it was never a penalty, but with power comes responsibility. Unfortunately it is all too easy to hide behind a nickname or alias and berate people for simply not being as good as you want them to be or, worse, to criticise, abuse or insult without the recipient of that invective being in a position to defend themselves.  Of course, it is not only the target that can read the abuse, friends and family, children can all get to read what someone else thinks of their son, husband, dad.  

At Sutton United we use these media to provide information, as far as possible we deal in facts and avoid offering opinions. Over the years we have used the unofficial fans' forum, Amber Planet, to give our supporters information alongside our official channels.  However, it is with regret that following the events of last week, when certain messages posted on that forum went far beyond what is acceptable in terms of personal attacks, we have decided that the club must disassociate itself from the forum. We have no control over the forum, it is not an official organ of the club, however we think that we need to make our position clear, therefore we will be removing all links to the forum from the club's website and publications.   

This will not stop the forum from operating of course, nor will it stop people from posting whatever they wish, but hopefully it will get the message across to our supporters that they have a responsibility to consider what they say and write.

Latest News   Sutton United 2-1 Ebbsfleet United - full report and photos
17th January 2015

Two goals in the first seven minutes gave Sutton a fine victory this afternoon against promotion-chasing Ebbsfleet. U's gave debuts to goalkeeper Aaron Howe and striker Dan Fitchett, while Damian Scannell returned on loan from Bromley, and Scannell was involved in both goals, crossing for Bedsente Gomis to head home in the 4th minute, and setting up Ricky Wellard to score with a low shot three minutes later. Ebbsfleet's second half reply came from Danny Kedwell's penalty. Full report, with photos, here.




Latest News   Sutton v Ebbsfleet preview and player news
16th January 2015

There will be a great deal of interest in events at Gander Green Lane tomorrow as Ebbsfleet play their first Vanarama Conference South game since new manager Jamie Day decided to make wholesale changes to his squad, while Sutton will also have several additions to the squad as they try to pull away from the wrong end of the table, hoping for a repeat of last season's 3-1 victory at the end of a season when both sides were just about guaranteed a play-off place.

Both ended up being beaten by Dover in the play-offs, and while U's have struggled to make an impact at the top of the table, Ebbsfleet have consistently been in and around the play-off zone again this term, but nevertheless decided on a change of manager in December, Jamie Day moving from Welling to replace Steve Brown. His early results were eccentric, with away wins at Chelmsford (5-1) and leaders Boreham Wood and home defeats against Basingstoke(5-1) and in the return game against Chelmsford, since when he has overhauled the squad, bringing in striker Danny Kedwell and defender Matt Fish from Gillingham and also Stuart Lewis (Wycombe), Theo Lewis(Woking), Adam Cunnington (Cambridge United) and Kelvin Langmead (Northampton), while releasing Billy Bricknell, Shane Huke, Anthony Cook, Michael Corcoran and Ben May. 

Sutton, meanwhile, have added four names to their squad since Tuesday's defeat at Merstham. Goalkeeper Aaron Howe signed on Wednesday, while on Friday U's added centre back Brad Gascoigne and striker Dan Fitchett, as well as re-signing Damian Scannell on loan until the end of the season from Bromley. Brad Gascoigne captained Hereford in the recent FA Trophy meeting between the sides, and has also played for Tamworth, Worksop and Boston after beginning his career with Birmingham City. Dan Fitchett played up front alongside Jamie White at Salisbury, scoring 16 goals in the Conference last season before joining Aldershot in the summer, while Damian Scannell was a key member of the squad that finished second in the table last season before joining Bromley along with Jamie Slabber in the summer.

It's Sutton's first league game since the defeat at Weston-super-Mare, since when Charlie Clough has departed for Forest Green. Kevin Amankwaah, Callum Hart, Dale Binns, Jamie White and Billy Medlock are all missing through injury, while on-loan Chris Sessegnon is ineligible to play against his parent club.

Dan Cook had levelled the scoring early in the first half with a superb volley from outside the penalty area. Match report here.

Latest News   Merstham 2-1 Sutton United - full report, reaction and photos
13th January 2015

A last minute goal by substitute Tommy Hutchings condemned Sutton to a Surrey Senior Cup exit tonight as Ryman League Division One South promotion chasers Merstham extended their unbeaten run to twelve games despite playing the second half with ten men. Fabio Saraiva gave Merstham the lead against the run of play with a powerful free kick eleven minutes before half time, but the home side had defender Simon Cooper sent off for a foul on Dan Wishart just before the interval. Sutton struggled to break down a packed home defence in the second half before Shaun Cooper's deflected 25 yard shot brought them level, but Hutchings struck the winner in the 90th minute. Louis John returned from injury and played the first half with no ill effects apart from a touch of cramp. Full report and photos here, and the views of Head Coach Ian Baird here

Latest News   Weston-super-Mare 3-2 Sutton United - full report, reaction & photos
04th January 2015

Sutton paid again for missed chances this afternoon as they went down 3-2 to Weston-super-Mare at Woodspring Park. Despite being the better side in the first half, Bedsente Gomis and Billy Medlock missed good chances, and both Gomis and Dan Wishart might have scored early in the second half before Ollie Watkins got the benefit of a tight offside call to put Weston ahead. Jack Evans then rattled the crossbar with a fine volley, before goals by Bradley Ash and Jake Mawford, the latter a spectacular effort, gave the home side an apparently unassailable lead. It was, but only after Charlie Clough pulled two goals back, heading in a cross from substitute Ricky Wellard and then striking a crisp low volley from the edge of the penalty area, but the second of those was two minutes in to the four minutes of stoppage time and U's couldn't complete the comeback despite a last minute goalmouth scramble. 

Clough was probably playing his last game for the club, as an offer has been accepted from Forest Green Rovers and the move is expected to be completed early this week. Harry Osborne was recalled by his parent club Charlton on Friday and immediately loaned to Welling, making his debut today, coincidentally at Forest Green, so there was a Sutton debut for Jamie Collins, released by Eastleigh this week. The 30-year-old defender had been with Eastleigh since the start of last season, and had previously spent a season and a half with Forest Green. He is best known, though, for a four year stay at Havant & Waterlooville, where he was captain during their FA Cup run which ended in a game against Liverpool at Anfield.

The twelfth Strikers are Key draw of the season - part of a bumper bonanza triple draw - duly took place after the match against Wealdstone. Here are the results:1) " A day with the team for two people", a great insight into Matchday preparation for any U' fan, was won by our friends from SUFCTv whose ball, number 46, was the first to be pulled out of the purple velvet bag. Congratulations to syndicate members Clive, James and Fiona King and Terry Summerfield.2) A season ticket for 2015/16 was, rather ironically, won by the owners of ball number 2, the syndicate owned by SUFC Midfielders. Syndicate leader Craig Dundas assured us all he would consult with team members and come up with something creative to make good use of the prize!3) The regular draw, with £450 in the safe, was then made. Ball number 4, owned by " The Loughlins", was next out of the bag, a family syndicate comprising of Claire, Paul, Dave, Janice and Tim Loughlin. Claire stepped forward but sadly chose the wrong key, thereby winning her syndicate the £50 consolation prize. It all means that a minimum of £650 is carred forward to the thirteenth SAK draw of the season, on 17 January, after the home match v Ebbsfleet.Thanks again for your tremendous support of this scheme - here's to a happy and successful 2015.Up the U's!

Latest News   Former U returns for Wealdstone clash
31st December 2014

Sutton have re-signed Chris Sessegnon on loan from Ebbsfleet until the end of the season. A former regular with the youth and reserve teams, who made three senior appearances, most recently against Epsom in the Surrey Senior Cup in December 2011, and at home on the right of defence or as a right winger, he joined Dover in 2012 and then moved to Ebbsfleet at the start of last season.

The 21-year-old will not be eligible for the game against Ebbsfleet in January, but can play tomorrow when Wealdstone visit Gander Green Lane for the return of the Boxing Day fixture that ended 1-1, the Stones equalising late in the game after Carl Martin's own goal had given Sutton a half time lead. Since then Sutton beat St Albans on Sunday while Wealdstone picked up a good point at Bromley, their goal being scored by former Sutton favourite and Ryman League winner Richard Jolly. Those results put Sutton within a point of tomorrow's opponents, with two games in hand.

Latest News   Sutton v St Albans preview
27th December 2014

A hectic Christmas schedule in the Vanarama Conference South continues tomorrow when Sutton and St Albans meet at Gander Green Lane (ko 3pm). After kicking off at 1pm on Boxing Day, both sides have had a couple of hours more recovery time than players involved in other games tomorrow, and both have to recover from the disappointment of seeing a possible three points reduced to one yesterday, Sutton conceding a 90th minute equaliser at Wealdstone at about the same time as Jordan Parkes was scoring for Hemel Hempstead at Clarence Park to ensure that game also finished 1-1.

The trip to Clarence Park in August saw one of Sutton's better performances this season as U's won 4-2, and victory tomorrow would complete a first league double of the season for U's against a side promoted from the Southern League at the end of last season and currently in 9th place, seven points ahead of Sutton having played two games more. They are making their first league visit since October 2005, when two Tony Quinton goals helped U's to a 4-0 win.

Sutton are able to include Bedsente Gomis after his red card at Hemel Hempstead was rescinded, but St Albans have Charlie Gormand and Steve Wales both absent through suspension.

Remember that in a double header of football tomorrow, you can watch the Tottenham v Manchester United game on television at the club before the St Albans game - kick off at White Hart Lane is 12 noon.

26th December 2014

A goal at the beginning of five minutes of stoppage time from Wealdstone substitute Matt Ball denied Sutton their first Vanarama Conference South victory in eight games today. Sutton, who operated with three centre backs and Harry Osborne and Dan Wishart as wing backs, led seven minutes before half time through an own goal by home defender Carl Martin, who diverted an already deflected free kick from Wishart in to the net, and it wasn't until the 75th minute that Wealdstone had an on target shot, which was brilliantly saved by recalled goalkeeper Alan Julian, but the keeper then failed to collect a free kick and former Sutton striker Richard Jolly laid the ball back for Ball to hammer home. Full report, with photos, here and Paul Doswell's post-match view here.

22nd December 2014

Sutton's Youth Team continued their defence of the Lucas Fettes League Cup with a 3-2 victory over Leatherhead tonight. Jack Strange gave Sutton the lead after Aidan Brown's twice-taken penalty was saved each time, but Brown extended the lead before Leatherhead pulled one back just before half-time. The Tanners levelled the scores midway through the second half but Brown scored the crucial third moments later to send Sutton through to the quarter-finals. Match report here.

Latest News   Sutton v Whitehawk preview
19th December 2014

After five weeks without a home game, Sutton return to Gander Green Lane tomorrow in search of a first Vanarama Conference South double of the season against Whitehawk. Back in September U's produced what many would rate as their best performance of the season so far, winning 2-0 with goals from Charlie Clough and Craig Dundas, and a repeat showing tomorrow would be very welcome as U's look to end a run of six league games without a win, the last success coming just over two months ago at Farnborough.

Billy Medlock is available again after being ineligible for the FA Trophy defeat at Hemel Hempstead, but Callum Hart remains on the sidelines after dislocating his shoulder at Basingstoke, although there is no serious damage and he should be fit to return in January. Bedsente Gomis is also in the squad, with his suspension not due to start until the game against St Albans next Sunday, but the club have appealed against his sending off at Hemel Hempstead. It is the second appeal that U's have put in to the FA this season - in October Michael Spillane had his red card against Bath City rescinded.

Whitehawk, who escaped relegation on the last day of the season last season, are unbeaten in their last six, and moved in to the fourth play-off spot on Tuesday with a 1-1 draw away to Weston-super-Mare.

The club will as always be open at lunchtime for anyone who wants to watch the 12.45 Premier League game between Manchester City and Crystal Palace.

The reserves are away to Carshalton Athletic tomorrow.




Latest News   Hemel Hempstead Town 1-0 Sutton United - full report, photos and reaction
13th December 2014

For the second time in a month a late Jordan Parkes penalty gave Hemel Hempstead victory over Sutton, this time to end U's hopes of an FA Trophy run. Parkes netted from the spot six minutes from time after a foul by Harry Osborne, but the turning point of the game was the sending off of Bedsente Gomis just before half time, the midfielder receiving a straight red card for violent conduct in a melee that followed a foul for which he was only going to be booked. Until then Sutton had been the better side and had seen several chances go begging, and although playing with ten men up the hill after the break they were pushed further back Hemel had created little to trouble Tom Lovelock until the goal. Full report and photos here. Paul Doswell's post-match verdict here 

Team: Lovelock, Osborne, Evans(Cooper), Amankwaah, Wellard(Hippolyte-Patrick), Clough, Spillane, Southam, Dundas, Gomis, White(Wishart). 




Latest News   FA Trophy preview
12th December 2014

Sutton return to the FA Trophy trail tomorrow with a visit to Hemel Hempstead (travel details here) in an all Vanarama Conference South first round tie. The teams met at Gander Green Lane in the league a month ago, when the Hertfordshire side came from a goal down to win with a disputed last minute penalty, while last season U's visited Vauxhall Road in the 4th qualifying round of the FA Cup, sharing a pulsating 3-3 draw before winning the replay. 

At the time of that game Hemel Hempstead were in the Southern League, but already looking likely to win the promotion that they duly achieved at the end of the season. They currently lie in mid table after a season that has seen them more successful away than at home, but after recording a first league home win against Basingstoke three weeks ago, the past week has seen that form turned round, with a 4-0 defeat at Chelmsford last weekend followed by Tuesday's 5-1 home win against Staines. Both sides qualified for tomorrow's game with 2-1 away wins, Sutton at Hereford and Hemel at Truro, but they had Arthur Lee sent off in that game and he is suspended tomorrow.

Billy Medlock is cup-tied so unable to build on his performance on Tuesday when he scored all four goals against South Park. Manager Paul Doswell was delighted with the striker's effort. ''It was probably the main benefit of Tuesday's game, and will give him confidence. Generally Tuesday was a good exercise - it was a big call about what sort of team to put out but in the end it worked well.'' Shaun Cooper is back in the squad for tomorrow after training well on Thursday, and Micky Spillane should be fit after making a quicker than expected recovery from the injury he sustained at Basingstoke. Also likely to be back sooner than expected is Callum Hart, who may only be missing for a fortnight after his shoulder was put back in place after the game at Basingstoke with no serious damage. Louis John is also close to recovery, and could be back in the next two or three weeks, whiele Dale Binns is looking at a late-January return.




Latest News   South Park 1-4 Sutton United - full report & photos
09th December 2014

Billy Medlock opened his goals account for Sutton in some style tonight when he became the first player for nearly three years to score four goals in a first team game as U's repeated the 4-1 victory that they recorded in the only previous meeting between the sides. Medlock scored twice in the first fifteen minutes, and completed his hat trick early in the second half. South Park pulled one back, but Medlock completed his haul near the end to secure a third round tie away to Merstham. In a strong line-up, there was a first senior start for Ollie Sitch, while three more from the successful reserve team, Warren Morgan, Jordan Oldershaw and Brandon Johnson came on during the second half. Full report and photos here .

The last player to score four in a game for Sutton was Kyle Vassell, also in the Surrey Senior Cup, against Godalming in January 2012.




Latest News   Surrey Senior Cup - tonight
09th December 2014

Click here for travel details for tonight's Surrey Senior Cup tie away to South Park, which was originally scheduled for last Tuesday but postponed due to the weather. South Park are having a reasonably successful debut season in Division One South of the Ryman League, currently five points outside the play-off zone after coming back to earn a 2-2 draw against Tooting on Saturday after going 2-0 down inside eight minutes. It will be the second meeting at the Reigate ground between the sides, Sutton winning 4-1 in the same competition three seasons ago. Manager Paul Doswell will be hoping that a number of his squad players will start the game and make a claim to first team inclusion,  although he admitted after Saturday's game at Basingstoke that the injuries to Micky Spillane and Callum Hart in that game have complicated selection, while there will also be places for several of James Bracken's successful reserve side. Kick off is 7.45, with extra time and penalties if necessary to decide who will visit Merstham in the third round in January.

06th December 2014

The U's twice came from behind, with goals by Ricky Wellard and Bedsente Gomis,  to earn a well-deserved point but will be kicking themselves not to have gone home with the win after creating a string of second-half chances only to be thwarted by the woodwork and some fine goalkeeping. On the debit side Micky Spillane and Callum Hart both went off injured, Hart with what looked like a very painful dislocation of his shoulder. Full report and photos here. Highlights and Paul Doswell's post-match interview here

Sutton's reserves drew 1-1 in their top of the table Suburban League game against to Metropolitan Police at Banstead, Christian Kapinga scoring U's goal from the penalty spot. Report to follow.




Latest News   Basingstoke v Sutton preview
05th December 2014

Both Sutton and Basingstoke ended recent poor runs with FA Trophy victories last Saturday, and both will be looking to build on those results when they meet at The Camrose tomorrow, kick off 3pm (click here for travel details). Basingstoke's single goal success against Whitehawk ended a run of five league and cup games without a win, but this followed an earlier sequence of six straight wins which has left them still challenging at the top of the table, going in to tomorrow's game in fifth place, nine points behind leaders Boreham Wood but with three games in hand, and with the knowledge that they won 2-1 when Boreham Wood visited Hampshire in September.

Sutton are seven points further back in 16th place, and like Basingstoke haven't won in the league since the same weekend in October, when U's beat Farnborough and Basingstoke won at Wealdstone. Billy Medlock is available again after being cup-tied for the trip to Hereford, while Basingstoke are without defender Tom Bird and midfielder Jamie Brown due to suspension.

Last season's meeting, played in part in a violent hailstorm, was won by Sutton thanks to Jamie Taylor's early goal, U's second win in the four meetings at The Camrose since they were promoted.

The reserves are in action at Banstead tomorrow against league leaders Metropolitan Police, kick off 3pm. The Police lead by seven points, but Sutton, who are still unbeaten in the league, have five games in hand.

Latest News   Sutton face Hemel in Trophy
01st December 2014

Sutton have been drawn away to Vanarama Conference South rivals Hemel Hempstead Town in the first round of the FA Trophy on Saturday 13 December. Sutton visited Vauxhall Road last season in the 4th qualifying round of the FA Cup, with an exciting 3-3 draw followed by a win for U's in the replay, but Hemel were at Gander Green Lane a fortnight ago and took all three points thanks to an injury time penalty. Hemel Hempstead reached this stage with a 2-1 win at Truro in which both sides had a player sent off, Arthur Lee picking up two yellow cards for Hemel and therefore suspended for the first round tie.
