Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 15
12th April 2014

Following Jamie Taylor's brace of goals today, £3,250 was up for grabs in today's "Strikers are Key" draw, the fifteenth of the season. The draw was conducted by today's guest, boxer Ricky Boylan, and ball number 40, owned by Ian de la Mare, was pulled out of the purple velvet bag. In Ian's absence, Damian Scannell came forward to try to choose the right key, but Damian's choice failed to unlock the safe, meaning that a minimum of £3,450 will roll over to Monday week's draw after the match v Concord Rangers, a fitting climax to the "regular" home League season. Should the safe not be cracked on that day, a draw will take place on Saturday night, 10 May, during our end of season party. A ball will be pulled out of the bag and that ball's owner will scoop the lot! Now that's worth a build up...! Exciting times indeed... Up the U's!

12th April 2014

An exciting second half saw the U's come from behind to win 3-1 against potential play-off rivals Ebbsfleet with two goals from Jamie Taylor and a rare Simon Downer effort. Less good news was a hamstring injury to captain Charlie Clough which could keep him out for the remainder of the season. Full report and photos here. For post-match interviews with manager Paul Doswell and two-goal Jamie Taylor click here.

Team: Brown, John, King, Spillane, Downer, Clough(Dundas), Sawyer, Scannell, Haysman(Shitta), Taylor, McCallum(Sinclair).

The reserves, already crowned Suburban League champions, drew 2-2 at Tonbridge. Both goals came from Warren Morgan.




Latest News   U's Launch Crowdfunder Project to Support Development Plans
12th April 2014

Support Our Community Development Plans With Crowdfunder.co.uk

Well, the masterplan is finished (we will post it on the club site in the next few days) and the planning application has gone in. Exciting times, as the cliche goes, but these really are exciting times for all at SUFC and so now we really need to make a final effort to get over the line. This is where you can help.

We announced recently that the board has released a batch of shares to raise ring-fenced funds for the project, that release is going very well but there are still shares available if you would like some (e-mail davef@suttonunited.net for details). 

However, we are aware that not all of our fans who would like to help support the project will want to buy shares. You can also participate in the Trust's Buy A Brick scheme for £30 per brick (e-mail anthony.henderson-smith@sky.com) but now we have launched our first ever CROWDFUNDING project.

Crowdfunding is a product of the digital age, a web-based scheme that allows anybody,from anywhere far and wide, to back a scheme in any part of the world. The concept is that a lot of relatively small donations can add up to make a very significant contribution to a project. In return for the donations, the project bidding for funding offers small, unique and hopefully interesting rewards. Our rewards range from a simple lapel badge to the chance to observe a first team training session. Although the different rewards are triggered at set levels, backers can donate any amount that they want. You can even donate more than once if you fancy collecting several different rewards.

The club only receives any money if we reach the target sum, in this case £20,000, so if you make a donation and we do not reach that target you get your money back. If we make over £20,000 then we will get all of the extra sum donated - fingers crossed ! All of the funds raised through the crowdfunding site will go towards the community project.

For more details of the project and to make your donation, please go to http://www.crowdfunder.co.uk/collingwood-community-pavilion/




Latest News   Sutton v Ebbsfleet preview
11th April 2014

Two of this season's potential Skrill South play-off candidates meet at Gander Green Lane tomorrow when Sutton, currently 2nd in the table, host 4th placed Ebbsfleet. The Kent side were among the pre-season favourites for promotion but a slow start, in which they won only one of their first nine games, saw them off the pace early on. However they have since climbed the table consistently and a run of success leading up to Christmas, culminating in a 2-0 win when Sutton visited Stonebridge Road, saw them take a place among the challengers which they have held subsequently, losing just two of their thirteen league games since a defeat at champions-elect Eastleigh at the end of January.

Sutton will be looking for the one victory that should guarantee them a place in the end of season competition, having seen a 16-match unbeaten start to 2014 end at Maidenhead last week. Dale Binns is likely to remain on the injured list alongside Jamie Slabber and Marvin Williams, although it is hoped that all will play some part in the run-in to the end of the season, while Ebbsfleet, whose manager Steve Brown signed a new contract earlier this week, have no injury worries. Their side could include former Sutton reserve Chris Sessegnon, while for Sutton Dammy Shitta had a loan spell at Stonebridge Road last season and head coach Steve McKimm was a member of the side that won promotion from the Ryman League as Gravesend & Northfleet in 2002.

Tomorrow's game kicks off at 3.07 pm as football across England remembers the Hillsborough disaster 25 years ago this month, and the game will be preceded by a minute's silence in memory of the victims.

Commentary on the game is available on http://www.ustream.tv/channel/sufctv---matchday-live-commentary.




Latest News   Sutton Youths Smash a Dozen Past Ks
10th April 2014

A rampant Sutton Youth side fired 12 goals without reply past bottom of the table Kingstonian tonight to consolidate their position at the top of the Ryman Youth League Central Division. Dan Haines, Emil Salama, David Lodge, Michael Rouse and an Ollie Sitch brace gave Sutton a six-goal cushion at half time before Sitch completed his hat-trick early in the second half. Salama added his second then Ben Cotton scored twice either side of an own goal whilst Josh Meek completed the rout. The night was capped off with news that second placed Whyteleafe lost at Met Police. Match report here.

 

The Youths return to Cup action on Monday visiting Burgess Hill Town in the semi-final of the Lucas Fettes Cup, 7.30pm kick-off, with the winners taking on Potters Bar Town in the final.

Latest News   Maidenhead United 3-2 Sutton United - full report & photos
05th April 2014

Sutton suffered their first defeat of 2014 today as Maidenhead gave their survival hopes a big boost,scoring twice in the last twenty minutes after Jamie Taylor's second goal of the game midway through the second half had given Sutton sight of victory. Taylor's first, in the 8th minute, was a neat lob from a long Jason Brown clearance, and Sutton were the better side for long spells in the first half, only for Harry Grant to equalise for Maidenhead just before the interval after a mistake by Simon Downer. Taylor restored Sutton's lead with a deflected shot from the edge of the penalty area, but three minutes later U's attempts to catch their opponents offside at a free kick backfired and Danny Green equalised. Green scored the winner two minutes from time, cutting in along the by-line after a quickly taken corner and squeezing the ball past Brown. Full report and photos here.

Sutton now trail Eastleigh by five points after they beat Whitehawk 3-2, but U's remain second following Bromley's defeat at Havant, who now occupy the fourth play-off place.

Meanwhile Emil Salama scored twice as Sutton's reserves beat Welling 3-1 to put themselves within touching distance of the Suburban League title. Report to follow.




Latest News   Reserves continue cup progress and eye league title
04th April 2014

Three goals in the last twenty minutes, one from Ben Cheklit and two from Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick, saw Sutton's reserves come from a goal down to beat Hartley Wintney 3-1 last night and earn a long trip to Royston in the semi-final. Full report here.

The reserves can go close to securing the Premier Division championship in the Suburban League tomorrow if they beat Welling at Banstead (3pm). Victory would leave U's unable to be overtaken on points, and although both Welling and Metropolitan Police, who visit Banstead on Wednesday week, would be able to match U's points total both have an inferior goal difference.




Latest News   Sutton United 3 Havant and Waterlooville 1 - full report & photos
03rd April 2014

Despite taking an early lead through Kane Haysman the U's had to withstand a strong performance from another of the league's in-form sides and although the Hawks grabbed a deserved equaliser before the break an improved 2nd half display brought 3 more important points. Jamie Taylor restored the lead with a confident header and then Craig Dundas sealed the win with a fine low shot after being played in by the lively Gavin McCallum.

Latest News   Youths Retain County Cup with Sitch and Salama Strikes
02nd April 2014

Sutton overcame a resilient Redhill Youth side in tonight's Surrey Under-18s Midweek Floodlit Cup Final at Merstham to retain the County's premier Youth Cup competition. Ollie Sitch opened the scoring early on, but it wasn't until the 76th minute that Emil Salama sealed the win with the Youth Team's 100th goal of the season and his own 50th goal for Sutton's Youth Team. Match report to follow.

 

Next up for the Youths is a home fixture against Whytleafe on Monday who currently lie second in the Ryman Youth League Central Division, level on points with Sutton but with an inferior goal difference.




Latest News   Paul and Gavin take awards
02nd April 2014

Manager Paul Doswell has created history this week, becoming the first manager to win a Manager of the Month award at any level of the Conference for three successive months. After Paul had picked up the January and February awards, Sutton's continuing unbeaten start to 2014 saw five consecutive wins during March, including a memorable victory at promotion rivals Bromley, and earned him the unprecedented hat-trick.

It's a double for Sutton with Gavin McCallum winning the division's Player of the Month award. Gavin scored four goals during the month, including two in the 4-0 defeat of Basingstoke and a brilliant effort to break the deadlock against Gosport three days later.

Congratulations to them both.




Latest News   Hall of Fame
02nd April 2014

Saturday's game against Bath City saw the latest three inductees to be welcomed into the club's Hall Of Fame.  This year's selections were themed around goals, and lots of them, with three of the club's five leading goalscorers of all time honoured for their marksmanship.  

Charlie Vaughan scored 248 goals in just five seasons, between 1942 and 1946 and featured in the side that won the Athenian League and Surrey Senior Cup in 1946. His record of 68 goals in one season still stands.

Ricky Kidd scored on his debut against Oxford City, later returned as a midfield player and collected an Isthmian League winners' medal as well as numerous cup winners' medals

Micky Joyce formed several lethal partnerships upfront and his individual haul of 9 goals in one game (an 11-1 win over Leathehead in 1982) also remains a club record. He also featured in most of the club's  successes of the 1980s.  

The players are photographed here receiving their Hall of Fame certificates from chairman of the board Dave Farebrother, with Charlie represented by his son John.

Latest News   Sutton United 2-2 Bath City - full report and photos
29th March 2014

A game that for 80 minutes had been a disappointment sprang to life as Sutton twice came from behind to maintain their unbeaten record in 2014 today. David Pratt headed Bath in front from a needlessly conceded free kick on the stroke of half time, and the visitors were unlucky not to score again when Chris Allen's shot came back off the bar. Sutton levelled eight minutes from time when Charlie Clough volleyed in Gavin McCallum's free kick, the prelude to an exciting finish which saw Damian Scannell and Andy Watkins go close before Pratt, the afternoon's outstanding player, showed superb control to bring down a long clearance from his goalkeeper and shoot past Jason Brown. Sutton came back again, though, with Craig Dundas celebrating his 300th appearance with a close range finish from McCallum's low cross, and might even have won when Clough headed in another McCallum free kick only to be ruled offside. Full report and photos here.

Before the game three of Sutton's all-time top five goalscorers were inducted to the Sutton United Hall of Fame with Charlie Vaughan, Ricky Kidd and Micky Joyce the latest to receive the accolade.

Sutton's reserves won 2-1 at Bromley with goals from Ollie Sitch and Warren Morgan. Report to follow.

Latest News   Big night for reserve and youth teams
26th March 2014

After the focus was on the Skrill South game against Hayes & Yeading on Tuesday, attention switches to the reserve and youth teams tomorrow (Thursday) as the reserves go for the club's first silverware of the season and the youth team face a top of the table game in the Ryman Youth League.

The reserves face Metropolitan Police in the final of the Suburban League Champions' Cup at Westfield FC, whose ground is in Woking Park (opposite Woking's Kingfield ground where the Hayes game was played yesterday - post code is GU22 9BA). Both sides had convincing victories in their semi-finals, Sutton 8-0 v East Grinstead, Met Police 7-2 v Royston, while Sutton won the league game between the clubs at Imber Court earlier in the season 4-1. It's a repeat of last season's Suburban League Cup final, which the Police won 1-0.

Meanwhile the youth team travel to Whyteleafe in the Ryman Youth League. The two sides have blazed a trail at the top of the table, both with ten wins and one defeat from their eleven games, but Sutton with a goal difference advantage of 13 due having conceded just two goals in the league this season, both this month. It's the first of two meetings between the sides in the space of ten days, with the return scheduled for Merland Rise on Monday 7 April.

Both tomorrow's games kick off at 7.45.




Latest News   Hayes & Yeading United 0-0 Sutton United - full report, reaction and photos
25th March 2014

Sutton suffered a second successive frustrating goalless draw tonight when they were held to a stalemate by Hayes & Yeading. In a similar game to Saturday's draw at Dorchester, Sutton did most of the attacking after Hayes had had three early chances, but again failed to find the net. Lee Sawyer had a header saved in the first half, Michael Spillane's fierce shot was tipped over after the break, and Jamie Taylor missed a good chance in each half. Hayes came close once after the break when Lee Williams' 20 yard shot was tipped away by Jason Brown. U's were unchanged from Saturday, with Dean Sinclair and Kane Haysman coming on in the second half for Gavin McCallum and Sawyer. Full report and photos here. Assistant manager Micky Stephens gave the management's verdict afterwards, and you can read that here

Latest News   Dorchester Town 0-0 Sutton United - full report, reaction and photos
22nd March 2014

Sutton were unable to break down some stubborn Dorchester resistance this afternoon but still extended their unbeaten start to 2014 to twelve games with the home side rarely threatening. The closest either side came to a goal was when Lee Sawyer's shot was cleared off the line by Nathan Walker in the second half. With Charlie Clough suspended there was a debut for new signing Will Spetch alongside Louis John in the centre of Sutton's defence. Full report with photos here. In Paul Doswell's absence Steve McKimm gave his reaction to the game here. 




Latest News   Dorchester v Sutton preview and player news
21st March 2014

Sutton make the trip west to Dorchester tomorrow having completed the signing and registration of defender Will Spetch from Southern League Poole Town. The 22-year-old has impressed since graduating through Poole's youth team and was voted Player of the Year by the supporters and players at Tatnam last season.

Two coachloads of supporters will also be making the trip tomorrow, taking advantage of the free travel offer from the club for this game(departure details and other travel arrangements here), and will hope to see Sutton extend their unbeaten start to 2014 to twelve games against a side that has been rooted to the bottom of the table for much of the season. That didn't stop them recording a shock win at Gander Green Lane in November, one of several occasions on which they have threatened to pull themselves out of trouble. More recently they beat Bromley at The Avenue Stadium and followed that up with another victory in a 'six-pointer' at Tonbridge, but in five games since then they have drawn two and lost three, and are three points adrift at the foot of the table going in to tomorrow's game.

Sutton captain Charlie Clough, whose own goal last season in Dorchester colours was the only goal of the game, misses out on a return to his former club as he starts a two match ban following his sending off at Farnborough, while Dorchester could include striker Elliott Chamberlain after signing him on loan from Exeter City until the end of the season.

20th March 2014

Sutton's Youth Team bounced back from Monday's disappointment at Carshalton with a 7-2 victory in the quarter-final of the Lucas Fettes Cup against Northwood at Banstead tonight. Ben Cotton and Dan Haines put Sutton 2 goals up before the visitors pulled a goal back, then Michael Rouse and Cotton again extended the lead with Northwood adding a second just before half-time. Cotton claimed his hat-trick from the penalty spot after Northwood's goalkeeper was sent off moments into the second half, then David Lodge added a sixth before Cotton scored his fourth of the game to put the icing on the cake. Match report here.

 

Sutton will visit Burgess Hill Town in the semi-final next month, and are next in action on Monday at home to Crawley Down Gatwick in the league.

Goals either side of half time by Gavin McCallum and Jamie Taylor gave Sutton a fifth consecutive Skrill South victory tonight and kept U's on the heels of Eastleigh and Bromley, who also both won.

Team: Brown, John, Binns, Spillane, Downer, Clough, Scannell(Haysman), Sawyer, Dundas(Sinclair), Taylor(Slabber), McCallum.




Latest News   Sutton v Gosport preview
18th March 2014

After Ebbsfleet's defeat at Havant last night, the three other sides in the Skrill South top four are in action tonight, Bromley at home to Eastbourne, Eastleigh at Whitehawk and Sutton beginning a run of three games against teams currently in the bottom six with a visit from Gosport Borough. It's Gosport's first visit to Gander Green Lane, ahead of another trip to London on Sunday when they face Cambridge United in the FA Trophy final, but thoughts that they might have one eye on their Wembley visit have been dispelled by their recent league form, which has been boosted by their Trophy success. Unbeaten in their last four games, they have won their last two and Saturday's win at home to Boreham Wood lifted them out of the bottom three in which they have been entrenched for most of the season. Striker Justin Bennett, recalled from a loan spell at Poole, score both goals in the win at Maidenhead last Thursday and repeated the trick against Boreham Wood on Saturday to become the club's all-time record scorer, and will doubtless be looking to continue that form tonight, while former Sutton players Andy Forbes, Tom Dunford and Adam Wilde will all want to make an impression on their return to Gander Green Lane.

Conditions should be better than the gale and rain which accompanied the 2-2 draw at Gosport in February, one of only two games this year that Sutton have failed to win. A reminder that admission prices are reduced from tonight for the rest of the season. Adults £10, concessions £5 (this rate is now available from age 60), under 16s £1.

Latest News   Reflections On A Great Day
16th March 2014

Saturday was another of those special days that makes being part of this club something to cherish.  I was away on holiday until Friday but everybody carried on regardless in making the arrangements for a great day and even the weather smiled on us.  

Steve King kept telling everyone that he felt we could top 2,000 but I'm not sure we believed him, so to get an attendance of 2172 was magnificent and, of course, when you get a gate like that you hope for a memorable display from the team that will encourage some to come back. Well, the team certainly delivered so thank you Paul and the players for such an entertaining performance and a valuable three points that keeps us right in the mix at the top of the table.  

Thanks also to Steve and the police cadets for once again putting on a well-organised Funday, we never forget that these things take a lot of effort and don't just happen.   The list of thank-yous just keeps going, well done to AB and his team of bucket-carriers, we never expected to get close to the £2,577 which compares very favourably with an average gate receipt.  What a great reward the day was for all those who helped distribute some 20,000 leaflets across the borough.  

Our appreciation also goes to PCSO Steve, Alpha the Radio,  Snaggles from Sutton Cub Scouts, Chelsea's  Stamford The Lion and, naturally, our own Jenny the Giraffe for maybe the most unusual collection of characters over seen down the Lane.  

Perhaps the biggest thank you goes to Tim Vine. Having seen the original date cancelled because of bad weather Tim could not have been more helpful or enthusiastic in getting back down here as soon as possible and he was the life and soul of the party all day, not only carrying out a myriad of different duties with his usual smile and wit but staying well into the evening to take on, and beat, allcomers at darts in aid of St Raphael's Hospice, our charity partners who also had a stall at the game and I'm sure also had a great time.  

As if that wasn't enough we also had the pleasure of hosting the Mayor's charity gala in the evening, an Irish ceili in aid of the Sutton Mental Health Foundation and another wonderful evening was enjoyed by all who attended.  

So, what a way to top off a week in which we announced exciting plans to modernise the stadium and deliver a fantastic new community pavilion and our manager agreed to stay for another four years.  

Perhaps I should go away more often!

And don't forget this Tuesday evening when we entertain FA Trophy Finalists Gosport Borough, who include several ex-U's in their ranks. Admission prices for that game and all our remaining home league games have been reduced to just £10, £5 (concessions) and £1 (under-16s) with OAP admission rates starting at age 60.

Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 13
16th March 2014

The thirteenth Strikers are Key draw duly took place in a packed Players' Bar following today's excellent 4-0 win against Basingstoke Town. To the delight of the assembly, the draw was conducted by Tim Vine who entertained the room royally. Ball number 17, owned by Michael Bidmead, was eventually pulled out of the purple velvet bag. Mike sadly failed to choose the correct key to open the safe which contained £1,950 and therefore won the £50 consolation prize. The pot is building and a minimum of £2,350 will be up for grabs in a fortnight's time after the home match v Bath City. See you there! Up the U's!

We will be delighted tomorrow to welcome Sky Sports' immensely popular Saturday morning 'Soccer AM' show as they send their cameras to follow Tim Vine and the events of the day. The show will also feature this unique fun-filled occasion in their Saturday morning programme, and will broadcast highlights of the day and match next Saturday.       

Fun is guaranteed as renowned comedian Tim Vine becomes team mascot for the day and will lead the players on to the pitch for the 'FREE' community funny day in support of the marvelous work carried out by our charity of the season St Raphael's Hospice. We are immensely grateful to Tim for giving up his time, not once but twice being kind enough to come back again after the original event was lost due to the poor weather back in January. Although we have had to remind Tim that kick off is at 3pm and not actually 3am as he has been telling people, but I think that might give us an indication of just what to expect tomorrow.  

Along with club mascot 'Jenny the Giraffe', Chelsea's 'Stamford the Lion', the Metropolitan Police's 'PCSO Steve' with his trusty friend 'Alpha the Radio', and the lovable Snaggles from Sutton Cub Scouts will complete the largest mascot contingent to amass at the club. Chaos is likely to be the only outcome as 'Jenny' takes on the others in a penalty shootout. Amidst all this is our vitally important Skrill South match versus Basingstoke Town, get behind your local team as they bid for promotion to the Conference Premier.  

In a week where we have unveiled exciting community development plans 'DON'T MISS' your chance to come and see us for 'FREE', join in the fun and support a great charity in St Raphael's Hospice and the vital work they do. .

Latest News   Sutton v Basingstoke preview
14th March 2014

With the weather set fair it promises to be a great afternoon at Gander Green Lane tomorrow as Sutton United throw open the gates to allow everyone in free for the Fun Day and Skrill South game against Basingstoke. Tim Vine will there all afternoon, acting as the mascot for the day and later making the Strikers Are Key draw in the players' bar, while in possibly the biggest collection of mascots seen at the ground Jenny the Giraffe, Chelsea's Stamford the Lion and the Met's own PCSO Steve will all be in attendance as well as Snaggles from the Sutton Cub Scouts, all to support our Charity of the Season, St Raphael's Hospice.

At 3pm there is a Skrill South game of importance to both sides, with Sutton hoping to move closer to the top of the table. Tuesday's defeat for Bromley against Dover means that U's are seven points behind the leaders with a game in hand although second placed Eastleigh, who are five points ahead and have played one game fewer than Sutton and two fewer than Bromley, are also in a strong position and Ebbsfleet now lie third, a point ahead of Sutton from a game more. Sutton are the in-form side, with seven wins and two draws from nine games this year, but Basingstoke, who are one of nine sides covered by nine points in the chase for the play-offs, have also been in good recent form, with Tuesday's defeat at home to Eastbourne their first since Jamie Taylor's goal proved decisive at The Camrose in January in conditions that were far removed from what is expected tomorrow.

Sutton have completed the signing of Michael Spillane, and he will come in to the squad, while Basingstoke have a number of injury doubts, including striker Manny Williams and midfielder Simon Dunn

Latest News   Shares Available to Support Stadium Plans
12th March 2014

Earlier this week we announced exciting plans for the project to provide new spectator and community facilities at the Borough Sports Ground.  Although we hope to receive and, indeed, will depend upon grant support to go towards the community project, any changes to the spectator facilities need to be fully funded by the club.   We are putting together a package of measures to reach our total and have decided that £20,000 of shares in Sutton United FC Ltd should be made available for general sale, with the income ring-fenced to go towards the project.

We would therefore invite any supporters who are interested in buying shares, whether you are an existing shareholder or not, to e-mail davef@suttonunited.net with your application. Shares cost £50 each and applicants must apply for a minimum of five shares.  




Latest News   Paul adds to squad
12th March 2014

Manager Paul Doswell has announced that he has agreed terms with defensive midfielder Michael Spillane, who was released at the end of January by Cambridge United, where he was a team-mate of Jason Brown. Spillane, who will be 25 on Sunday week, is a Republic of Ireland Under 21 international although he was born in Jersey, and has over 150 Football League appearances to his credit with Norwich, Luton, Brentford, Dagenham & Redbridge and Southend. He will join up with the squad in time for this weekend's game against Basingstoke. Paul said: ''Micky is a holding defensive midfielder who can also play right back and we've needed cover there since Rhys Weston was injured and we lost Alex Wynter and Harry Osborne. We've been tracking him for about a month since we knew Cambridge had released him, and although he was waiting to see if he could get a position at a higher level we're delighted that he's agreed to join us for this season and next, and he knows that if he does well it will give him the opportunity to get back in to the Football League.''




Latest News   Stadium Project Update
11th March 2014

It has taken a long time to reach this stage but we are at last in a position to reveal our plans for the new community pavilion and associated works and we hope that everyone is as excited by the plans as we are.

The Borough Sports Ground is a large piece of land and we are very conscious of the fact that as the long-term tenants we have a responsibility to honour the original intentions of Sir Thomas Wall, who donated the land to the people of the borough, to use the site wisely. 

The old athletics track dictated the way the stadium developed but the land could be used much more effectively and so we are delighted to finally reveal the details of the redevelopment scheme we have been working on for what seems like an eternity.

In order to free up the large areas of land along the parkside and behind the Collingwood Road goal we need to remodel the football stadium, to produce a tighter, enclosed arena that will facilitate the development of facilities for all of the community.  This is a big job, there’s no denying that, and is not something we can afford to do all at once. However, in the long run the costs can be kept to a minimum by ensuring that projects we undertake now do not impact on future works. 

The East Phase, remodelling the Collingwood Road end, and the North Phase, delivering the community pavilion on the parkside, are both projects that we hope and intend to undertake this summer subject to funding. Subsequent phases will depend upon a whole host of other factors lining up.  It is important to distinguish between these phases. The complicated rules regarding grant support mean that many of the elements will not be eligible for any grants– they are items that the club will have to fund itself.  However, significant elements of the North Phase will be eligible for grants and in fact it will not be possible to go ahead without that support.

So, what does the East Phase entail ?   The hope and intention is to start work as soon as this season ends. We will square off the Collingwood Road end, with a new pitch perimeter fence parallel to the goal-line and a new walkway/hard-standing area.  Behind that will be a covered terrace, similar in size to the one behind the other goal.  Subject to the views of the groundsman and any impacts on pitch drainage, we may also move the whole pitch around 3m towards towards Gander Green Lane and make it perhaps 1-2m wider.  Again, we would bring the perimeter fence much closer to the touchline on the stand side, demolish both the old and new dugouts and construct new, transparent dugouts on the parkside.  There will also be some mainly cosmetic works to freshen up the main stand and, in that regard, we would also like to ask, nearer the time, for some volunteers to help with painting. We also intend to install a new PA system.

The North Phase is the scheme that you are all much more familiar with by now, the demolition of the parkside terrace and construction of a new terrace closer to the touchline in order to free up space on which to build the new community pavilion. We also have the possibility of erecting a further facility, a steel-framed structure originally used as a pop-up shop for the London Olympics, which would open up many more opportunities for flexible use and we would also provide a new fully enclosed groundsman’s compound, together with a new, secure stadium perimeter fence.  Of course, being able to complete all of these works will depend on the levels of funding that we can secure.

Because we lease the ground from the London Borough of Sutton all of the above proposals will need landlord’s consent, which we requested last week.  We will also need planning permission and are delighted to say that an application is now been prepared. Finally, we will need to get Football Foundation approval for a grant towards the community scheme. As Churchill said, “this is not the end, it is not even the beginning of the end but it is, perhaps, the end of the beginning.”

We will keep you updated on the project as things develop.

Latest News   Chocolate and Amber...and Green
09th March 2014

Having been the first football club to be certified as Planet Positive, Sutton United is now proud to announce that we have achieved the new Planet Mark in partnership with Eden Project, improving our sustainability performance even further

Using the internationally recognised Planet First Protocol methodology, the footprint for the Borough Sports Ground during 2013 was calculated at 95.07 tonnes/CO2e, following a reduction of 14% compared to 2012. We have targeted a further reduction in emissions by 5% during 2014. As part of certification, we are also proudly supporting the Eden Project Education programme, helping educate children on sustainability.

We intend to look more closely at the overall environmental impacts of our activities. There are areas over which we have limited or no control, for example how many away games we play each year or how many home games require the floodlights to be on, but we will be exploring changing over to more energy efficient lights inside the club, which will also save money in the long-term, and have recently agreed a new waste management contract that will see much of our waste being recycled.

Steve Malkin, CEO of Planet First comments: “We are delighted that Sutton United is taking an important step towards improving their sustainability performance even further. Sutton United is a company that is really trying to improve its sustainability, not just because of the obvious business benefits, but because they really want to help the environment by reducing emissions. Planet First firmly believes that businesses can be socially responsible and sustainable, and still be successful.”

Latest News   Farnborough 1 Sutton United 2 - full report, photos and reaction
08th March 2014

With both Bromley and Eastleigh losing Sutton took full advantage with their third win in a week. The opening period was fragmented on a very bumpy surface but U's upped their game after Damien Scannell opened the scoring. Despite Charlie Clough seeing red for a professional foul Jamie Taylor doubled the lead within a minute and U's rarely looked in trouble after that. In fact, if it hadn't been for three top drawer saves by Kevin Scriven U's would have been home and hosed long before Borough's late consolation caused a few flutters with 5 minutes of added time to be played. Full report, with photos, here and watch Paul Doswell's post-match interview here.

Sutton's reserves lost for only the second time this season, going down 2-1 to Wellingwhose winning goal was a disputed penalty. Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick maintained his good recent form with Sutton's goal. Report to follow.

02nd March 2014

The twelfth Strikers are Key draw duly took place in the Players' Bar after today's 2-0 win against Chelmsford City.The safe contained £1,650 and the assembly watched with heightened anticipation as ball number 7, owned by Lee Wallis, was pulled out of the purple velvet bag.In Lee's absence, Damian Scannell was once again asked to step forward to try his luck to pick the correct key to open the safe. Sadly for Lee, Damian kept up his 100% record of choosing the wrong key which means that a minimum of £1,850 rolls over to the next draw on Sat 15th March after the match v Basingstoke when comedian and U's fan Tim Vine will be conducting the draw.The £50 consolation prize goes to Lee. One of the advertised benefits of SAK membership was a lunch for one member of each syndicate on a date to be arranged.

Congratulations to Paul Doswell, who has won the Skrill South Manager of the Month award for the second month in a row. Sutton picked up eight points out of a possible twelve during the month, after two wins out of two in January had seen Paul receive the award last month as well. Luton's John Still and Harrogate's Simon Weaver were the other divisional winners, while Tim Sills of Gosport won the Player of the Month for the south division.




Latest News   Great News for Fans
26th February 2014

Saturday 15th March sees top comedian Tim Vine return to The Lane to complete the first half of his generous day at the club, which was rudely curtailed by the wet weather a few weeks ago even though he did honour his promise to put on a show at the club that night, and what a great show it was !  Our game against Basingstoke Town on the 15th will also see us stage another of the popular Community Fun(ny) Days, with St Raphael's Hospice joining in the fun with a few fundraising ideas.  Sutton United and St Raphael's both offer our warmest thanks to Tim for giving us his valuable time.

Best of all though, we are offering FREE admission to all that day, with the option to pay as much as as you wish, or not, once you are in the ground. In addition, some 15,000 leaflets are being distributed to various schools and organisations across the borough so we hope for a really bumper turn-out.

The bad weather has really taken its toll on the season. You can see that from the number of games that clubs still have to play and the club realises that playing so many fixtures in such a short space of time puts unreasonable pressure on the pockets of even the most dedicated fans. Therefore, as a thank you to our tremendous supporters and as our contribution to the cause, the club has decided to reduce admission prices for all home league games after 15th March. Adult admission will be reduced to £10, the prices for concessions will be £5 and it will be just £1 for under-16s. 

We also realise that this is of no benefit to our season ticket holders, so we will also be offering a discount to all s/t holders who renew next season. Finally, we have also reviewed our policy on the age for starting the senior citizen concession and this has been returned to age 60.

Now, let's hope for a run of good weather, some great results and some excellent support.

More exciting news to follow in the coming weeks.

22nd February 2014

A very precise looping header by Jamie Slabber earned U's a share of the spoils after an expertly taken goal by Elvis Hammond against the run of play had given the home side the half-time lead. U's had to play out the last half hour with ten men when, after using all three substitutes, Rhys Weston was stretchered off with a suspected dislocated kneecap. Full report and photos here. Highlights and Paul Doswell's post-match interview here. 

Meanwhile Shaquille Hippolyte-Patrick scored his second hat-trick in four days as Sutton's reserves won 8-0 at East Grinstead in the semi-final of the Suburban League Champions' Cup. Ben Cheklit scored twice and there was a goal apiece for Sekon Kaba, Michael Rouse and Emil Salama. It means that Sutton have scored eighteen goals without reply in three games this season against East Grinstead, but will not add to that tally as due to the recent bad weather the semi-final was reduced to a single-leg game.

Latest News   Bromley v Sutton preview - MATCH POSTPONED
07th February 2014

THIS GAME HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO A WATERLOGGED PITCH

As has been the case for much of the time since Christmas, as much attention will be on the weather forecast as the football in the lead up to tomorrow's Skrill South visit to league leaders Bromley (click here for travel details). With more heavy rain forecast overnight, 

Should the game go ahead Sutton will be looking to maintain their unbeaten start to 2014, a record which survived Tuesday's trip to a rain-and-windswept Gosport, U's coming back from two down to grab a point and remain in 4th position in the table, 19 points behind Bromley who have an eleven point lead over second placed Eastleigh. When the sides met at Sutton in October Sutton won by the only goal, scored by Jamie Slabber who took his league tally to eleven in sixteen games with the equaliser on Tuesday, but since then Bromley have been in fine form, taking 37 points from the 14 games played, and losing just once, a surprise home defeat by Concord Rangers which was their only home defeat in the league - indeed until Ebbsfleet earned a goalless draw at Hayes Lane on Boxing Day Bromley had a 100% home record. That run of games has seen them come back with all three points from testing visits to Dover, Ebbsfleet and Bath, results which have underlined their promotion potential.

Sutton won the corresponding game 2-0 last season with goals from Marvin Williams and Harry Beautyman, but Williams will be unable to repeat that effort tomorrow as he remains sidelined with an achilles injury. U's will also be without Simon Downer as he begins a two match suspension for accumulated cautions.

Should the weather have the final say, Sutton supporters should still be able to see a game tomorrow with the reserves due to play Tooting & Mitcham in the Suburban League Shield, a game that will take place on the 3G pitch at Imperial Fields.

Following Havant & Waterlooville's FA Trophy win last night there has been some rearrangement of Sutton's forthcoming fixtures. That result means that Havant will be in semi-final action on Saturday week, 15 February, when they were due to visit Gander Green Lane, so we will now instead be at home to Weston-super-Mare on that date as they were due to play Havant's semi-final opponents Gosport.

The home game against Boreham Wood has been rearranged for Tuesday 1 April.




Latest News   Gosport Borough 2 Sutton United 2 - full report & photos
04th February 2014

The U's came from two down to draw away to FA Trophy semi-finalists Gosport. In a game played throughout in coditions of heavy rain and howling gales, U's faced the elements in the first half and went two down thanks to a Sammy Igoe penalty and a long range shot from Mike Gosney, but Simon Downer replied with a crucial goal on the stroke of half time, heading in Lee Sawyer's corner. With the weather behind them in the second half U's dominated but could only manage Jamie Slabber's scrambled equaliser, although they did come close to a winner when Damian Scannell's cross was tipped on to the bar by Nathan Ashmore. With David Gregory having returned to Crystal Palace U's gave a debut to Welsh international goalkeeper Jason Brown, released by Cambridge United, but Alex Wynter's loan has been extended by another month. Full match report and photos here.

Team: Brown, Wynter, Binns, Weston(McCallum), Downer, Clough, Scannell, Dundas, Slabber, Taylor(Haysman), Sawyer.

Latest News   Progress on Community Front
31st January 2014

After a long period of what seemed like walking through treacle, it has been a very exciting few days for our community programme.  

Last week the London Borough of Sutton agreed to grant the club a long-term agreement for the use of Collingwood Recreation Ground for community sport and related activities. This is highly significant, as a long-term agreement is a pre-requisite for us to be able to apply for grant support for the provision of a new pavilion to be constructed entirely within the boundaries of the Borough Sports Ground. As we've always said, even this leaves us a long way to go. We need to gain planning consent for the project and then apply successfully for a Football Foundation grant. Even if that goes smoothly we would still need to find the balance of the costs. To residents we'd like to make an assurance that the agreement for use does not preclude any of the other common uses of the recreation ground, indeed the pavilion project would enhance the experience for users by providing additional facilities. Just three years ago the area was in a poor state, with grass so long that even dog-walking was difficult, and it is down to Sutton United, who are responsible for the grass being cut and pitches being maintained, that the area now looks so nice and is getting used ever more widely. Hopefully this lease will leverage sufficient funds to get the pavilion built, a significant investment in the borough and at no cost to the local authority or residents.  The pavilion will primarily provide changing rooms for junior football but will also be available for other uses. As well as a cafe and police office our longer terms plans include a small fitness room and maybe even an endless pool, which could be used as a sports rehabilitation centre or, indeed, for any local person recovering from injury. In terms of other activities in the recreation ground, Sutton United would not prevent these; in fact  we would encourage them and we would hopefully be able to help other organisations to deliver activities there.  Finally, we'd add that the project is not an income-earner for Sutton United FC and we are exploring various options for ring-fencing our community programme, through a Community Interest Company for example, so that there is transparency in the use of funds. 

Then, today, we were delighted to welcome a visit from the Rt Hon Maria Miller, MP, the Secretary of State for Culture, Media and Sport. The Minister enjoyed a brief tour of the stadium and a presentation about our plans for a community pavilion as well as our wider community programme of education and support, especially for young people and those with disabilities. This was followed by a brief discussion with other local sports clubs. A brief video of the visit will be available on SUFCtv.




Latest News   Sutton v Boreham Wood - POSTPONED
31st January 2014

TODAY'S GAME HAS BEEN POSTPONED DUE TO A WATERLOGGED PITCH

There will be an inspection at 10.30 on Saturday morning to decide whether the afternoon's Skrill South game at home to Boreham Wood can go ahead after more rain on Friday. If the game is played, it will be Sutton's first home game since Boxing Day, and will see them looking to complete a first league double of the season against a side who U's beat 3-1 at Broughinge Road in December. After half an hour of that game a Sutton win looked unlikely, with Boreham Wood having dominated and hit the woodwork twice while Sutton were lucky not to be down to ten men, but Damian Scannell's goal just before half time turned the game in Sutton's favour and by the time Graeme Montgomery had scored a spectacular late goal for the home side U's had the points sewn up with further goals from Craig Dundas and Jamie Slabber.

Boreham Wood come in to the game in the lower half of the table but their away form has been reasonable, with recent wins at Bishop's Stortford and Whitehawk, while earlier in the season they hit six without reply at Chelmsford and have also drawn at Bath and Ebbsfleet. They have signed Kudus Oyenuga on loan from Dundee in time for tomorrow's game - the former Tottenham youngster was Hayes & Yeading's top scorer last season and netted in their 5-1 defeat at Gander Green Lane in April.

Sutton, who have won the fixture 2-1 in each of the last two seasons, have recalled Gavin McCallum from loan at Tonbridge with Marvin Williams facing at least another month out with his achilles injury, and will look to build on the two excellent away wins at Basingstoke and Chelmsford.

Latest News   Basingstoke Town 0-1 Sutton United - full report, photos and reaction
26th January 2014

On a day when the wind made conditions very difficult, a moment of real quality from Jamie Taylor in the 16th minute earned the U's three well-deserved points when he fired in to the roof of the net after the goalkeeper had punched out a Damian Scannell cross.  Full match report, with photos, here and assistant manager Paul Telfer's views here.




Latest News   Basingstoke v Sutton preview and squad update
24th January 2014

As at 9.45 on Saturday morning we have had no indication of any problems concerning today's game but we will update this message if necessary.

After playing only one game in January so far, Sutton will be hoping that the weather behaves itself this weekend and allows the game at Basingstoke to go ahead (click here for travel details). It will be the first meeting this season between the sides, with Basingstoke one of several sides now chasing a play-off place in what has become a congested top half of the table. Sutton are currently in 4th place but are separated from 13th placed Chelmsford by only six points, and even 15th placed are only nine points behind U's with three games in hand.

Sutton's win at Chelmsford a fortnight ago looks an even better result now than it did at the time, with Chelmsford bouncing back with impressive away wins at Whitehawk and Concord Rangers, and tomorrow will be another test against a side who would move to within a point of Sutton were they to win, and who had a good win at Eastbourne last week, althought their most recent home game, against Whitehawk, saw them suffer a surprise 3-1 defeat, one of three games they have lost at the Camrose this season with Hayes and Bromley also picking up maximum points on the ground.

Missing from the line-up tomorrow will be Mitchell Nelson, who has become the latest player to leave Gander Green Lane to join Margate, where Jamie Stuart, Anthony Riviere, Sam Rents, and Dean McDonald are all in the squad - Riviere scoring but James Folkes, who joined Margate via Hemel Hempstead, being sent off in Tuesday's game against Dulwich when Margate saw a 2-0 half time lead turn in to a 4-2 defeat. Folkes has subsequently been released by the Kent club. Marvin Williams is a definite injury absentee and Simon Downer also doubtful, but U's have signed 21-year-old defender Louis John on loan from Crawley until the end of the season. He played a number of games for the Sutton youth team three seasons ago before joining Crawley, who awarded him his first professional contract at the end of last season. He replaces Harry Osborne, whose loan from Charlton expired this week and who returned to the Charlton development squad in today's 1-1 draw with Millwall.

After announcing at the weekend that Jamie Taylor and Craig Dundas had signed extensions to their Sutton contracts, manager Paul Doswell is delighted to confirm that popular winger Dale Binns has followed suit and this week signed an extension to cover next season. Paul said ''It's fantastic news for the club and, with these three players added to Mitchell Nelson, Charlie Clough, Lee Sawyer, Damian Scannell and Jamie Slabber, who are already signed on for next year, we're already planning for next season and it gives us the basis of a great squad.''




Latest News   3G - Has Its Time Come?
12th January 2014

The current spell of persistent rain has served as a reminder of how vulnerable non-League football in particular is to the weather. We don't have the resources of the professional clubs to safeguard pitches and ensure that games, as far as is practicable, go ahead. So this is a good time to confirm that Sutton United has submitted a proposed rule change to the Skrill Football Conference, which has been seconded, that would allow clubs in the competition to play games on approved 3G surfaces. Why have we done this? Well, the technical debate about 3G is surely over. World Cup qualifiers and Champions League games have all been played on 3G, various clubs below the Conference use the surface to generally positive reports and enjoy a variety of benefits that derive from having a pitch that can be used more than a grass surface ever could.  This doesn't necessarily mean that Sutton United would want to install a 3G pitch, that's a discussion for another day, but we strongly believe that clubs at all levels of the domestic game should have the right to decide for themselves and we hope that the Member clubs will vote in favour of this proposal, continuing the Conference's long tradition of being a force for change.

Latest News   Dons defender arrives on loan
06th January 2014

Sutton have signed Welsh international defender Rhys Weston on loan for a month from AFC Wimbledon. The 33-year-old came through the academy at Arsenal, making one first team appearance, and then played over 200 games for Cardiff City, being a part of the team that rose from the old third division to the Championship, and also spent three years with Walsall as well as a spell as captain of Dundee as they finished second in the Scottish first division two seasons ago.

Latest News   Sutton United v Gosport Borough preview. MATCH POSTPONED
03rd January 2014

Match postponed due to waterlogged pitch. The reserves' Suburban Shield game at Tonbridge has already been postponed.

Should the game survive the weather it will be the first ever meeting between Sutton and Gosport Borough, who were promoted at the end of last season through the Southern League play-offs, winning at Hemel Hempstead in the final. They have found the step-up in status a challenge, and have been in or around the bottom three for most of the season, but recently they have shown signs of better form, picking up their first away league win of the season at Concord Rangers at the beginning of December, a week after putting the same side of of the FA Trophy, and they still retain an interest in that competition having survived two games against Skrill Premier team Nuneaton Town before winning on penalties. They travel to Hungerford Town next week in the third round.

Several familiar faces could be in the Gosport line-up tomorrow, with the squad likely to include Andy Forbes, a member of Sutton's 2011 Isthmian championship squad, Tom Dunford, who had a brief spell at Gander Green Lane at the start of the same season, and Adam Wilde, a member of the squad in Paul Doswell's first season at the club. Experienced striker Tim Sills is also now at Privett Park.

While there may be some familiar names in the Gosport squad, there could be several unfamiliar ones in the U's line-up, with three potential debutants. Goalkeeper David Gregory and Adam Wynter, who can play at the back or in midfield and had a loan period at Eastbourne last season, have both joined on youth loans from Crystal Palace while Paul has also signed winger Dammy Shitta, a member of the Millwall Under 21 side last season who had a spell on loan at Ebbsfleet. Missing will be Sam Rents, the latest of the squad to join Margate's push for promotion from the Ryman League after making 87 apperances for Sutton, scoring seven goals.

Before the game you can watch the Blackburn Rovers v Manchester City FA Cup tie on television in the bar (ko 12.45), with Arsenal taking on Tottenham at 5.15, and if you can't get to the game then full commentary live from the ground is available at http://www.ustream.tv/channel/sufctv---matchday-live-commentary
