Latest News   New Development Squad Announced
13th April 2015

Following on from today's earlier announcement that the reserve team is to withdraw from the Suburban League, Chairman Bruce Elliott reveals an exciting new initiative.

"As founder members of the Suburban League it was a hard decision to take but we decided that the time was right to explore new directions in terms of player development.  But it does not mean the end of reserve team football at Sutton, just a change of direction. We have already announced the new Academy, and that team will be playing in the Conference under-19s league, but we will also be introducing a new development squad. This team will be playing friendlies, often against pro clubs, and will allow us much more flexibility in terms of who plays and when. We have some good young players at the club and we believe this will enhance their chances of establishing themselves at first team level."




Latest News   U's Announce Revised Playing Structure
13th April 2015

After much soul searching and deliberation the directors have taken the difficult decision to withdraw the reserve team from the Suburban League for next season.

To enable younger players to continue to progress, the club will continue with its Under-18 team but , excitingly, an Under-19 Academy is being set up in partnership with Nescot under the guidance of U’s own Marvin Williams to play competitive football in the Football Conference Youth Alliance League. It is hoped that this will help players make the transition to senior football as the gap from Suburban to Conference South has been difficult to bridge.

In coming to this decision, the directors acknowledge the outstanding contribution and achievements of the manager James Bracken and his support team and are delighted that James is to continue to manage the Under-18 team.

With the installation of the 3G pitch, supporters will be able to watch the Academy matches at The Lane on a Wednesday afternoon whilst Under-18 matches will also be back at home in future.

 




Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 20
11th April 2015

You know when you wait for a bus for ages and then two come along together? Well; so it is with the Strikers are Key draws this season.

After eight futile attempts in a row to choose the correct key, the safe was cracked for the second successive week after today's game v Basingstoke Town, making it 6 successful openings in the 20 attempts to date this season.

Ball number 29 was pulled out of the purple velvet bag, owned by the syndicate " Merseyside Branch", comprising Neil Allen and Graeme Carter. In their absence today, Jonathan Ward stepped forward in the capacity of being most geographically associated with our two friends from the North West to try and select the key-opening safe on their behalf.....that and he reckoned on a free beer or two were he to be successful! Wardie will be looking to claim that pint very soon as he calmly chose the key which opened the safe, winning Neil and Graeme £200 in the process. Congratulations to them.

For the record, the following numbers have been pulled out of the bag so far this season:9, 32, 16, 39, 21, 18, 16, 22, 37, 9, 13, 4, 47, 31, 14, 19, 42, 45, 45 and 29.

Onwards to the game v Maidenhead in two weeks' time and the final draw of the season. If the safe is not opened then, the contents will be won at the End of Season party on 16 May. Remember each syndicate is entitled to one free place at that event.

Thank you to everyone involved again for their outstanding support of this great initiative.

Up the U's!

10th April 2015

Sutton must now hope Woking only pick up one point from their remaining two matches if they are to stand a chance of retaining the Central Division title, but have to themselves concentrate on picking up maximum points in their remaining 5 league matches, the first of which comes on Monday when they take on Kingstonian in an "away" match at Banstead, 7.45pm kick-off.

BTSport

Swansea City v Everton

The Vanarama Conference South championship race involves Sutton again tomorrow when, five days after Boreham Wood went back to the top of the table with a 2-0 win over U's at Meadow Park, Basingstoke visit Gander Green Lane with the prospect of themselves hitting the top of the table should they win and Bromley and Boreham Wood lose at home to Eastbourne and away to Ebbsfleet respectively. Basingstoke lie two points behind their rivals, and like Bromley have a game in hand over Boreham Wood. After tomorrow have a home game against Havant, themselves still in the title picture currently level on points with Basingstoke but having played a game more, and finish with a trip to Weston-super-Mare, who will have a say in the destination of the title as they also have to visit Bromley.

The corresponding game last season saw one of Sutton's best performances of the season produce a 4-0 win, and the sides drew 2-2 in an entertaining game at The Camrose in December. Sutton should have Shaun Cooper back in the line-up following his suspension and injury.

At the other end of the table Farnborough will be relegated if they fail to beat Chelmsford.

At 12.30 tomorrow Sutton's newly-formed community team make their debut with a game against Woking for the Smith & Byford Community Cup. The teams will also compete in a penalty competition at half time in the Basingstoke game.

Sutton are the Suburban League champions for the third season in a row after a 5-1 win tonight against Hampton & Richmond Borough with goals from Jordan Oldershaw, Josh Uzun, Ayman El Mogharbel and Ollie Sitch as well as an own goal. Congatulations to James Bracken, his staff and all the players who have contributed to another superb season for the reserves, who remain unbeaten this season with tonight's victory a twelfth in a row.




Latest News   U's Launch New Community Team
09th April 2015

After much effort behind the scenes and several months of training to build a squad, the new Sutton United Community Team takes to the field for the first time this Saturday when they entertain Woking (Borough Sports Ground 12.30), competing for the Smith & Byford Community Cup.  Coach Steve King is delighted to see the culmination of so much hard work, after volunteering to take the special courses to become a qualified coach for disability sports. “It’s a step into the unknown”, said Steve. “The guys have all trained really hard and are looking forward to the game but, until we kick-off, we really have no idea of how we will fare against more established sides. I’d particularly like to thank Stephen Preedy and Paul Leconte for helping with the coaching and getting the team to this stage. We are also very grateful to the local community for responding so positively to this innovation, to Jeremy at Abbotts for finding our sponsors and, especially, to the sponsors themselves for their vital contribution.”

The new SUFC Community Team is sponsored by  Hunters, Nudge Factory, Aline, SureCare, Predactor Pest Solution, Imageworx, and Abbotts

At half time in the Vanarama Conference South match, which kicks-off at 3.00, Sutton and Woking will be in competition again, this time a penalty shoot-out.

The final word has to go the hard-working King, who adds that “We commissioned a brand new kit for the guys, a replica of the strip Sutton wore when they defeated Coventry City in the FA Cup in 1989, and I know they will be bursting with pride when they take the field in their new kit on Saturday. We are all really look forward to it and I hope spectators will get there a bit earlier than usual to take in the match.”

Latest News   Youths Snatch Deserved Point at Local Rivals
08th April 2015

A late Aidan Brown penalty to level the scores at 3-3 kept Sutton's slim title chances alive tonight at Carshalton. Jack Lewis' opener was quickly cancelled out by the hosts before Joe Jarrett put Sutton 2-1 up. Goals either side of half-time saw Carshalton threaten to take all three points but Brown slotted home from 12 yards with a couple of minutes to spare. Match report here.

 

Sutton are next in action on Friday evening as they take on league leaders Woking, 7.45pm kick-off at Banstead, and now cannot afford to drop a point whilst also hoping that Friday's opponents only pick up 1 further point from their final two matches. 




Latest News   Season Ticket Sale In Full Swing
07th April 2015

With the U's new £99 adult season tickets for next season already selling well, Chairman Bruce Elliott is looking forward to the tickets being available more widely when the club's ambitious marketing campaign kicks-off across the borough next week.  

"Sales have gone well so far, we've already passed this season's total and a large number of the tickets have gone to supporters who didn't have a season ticket this year, so we have had a flying start towards the target of one thousand sales.  We will have almost one hundred thousand leaflets hitting homes in the next few weeks, so a one percent response rate would see us sell out.  I know this is a lot earlier than people usually get their new ticket but our regular supporters might like to purchase their season tickets sooner rather than later to be sure of taking advantage of the special low rate. I'd also remind them that we are offering an even bigger discount on renewals, just £75."

The £75 discount price is available, for the first 1,000 tickets only, to all current season ticket holders, shareholders in SUFC Ltd and members of the Supporters’ Trust or Supporters’ Club.  It is still possible to join the Supporters’ Club online for £5.

Other Prices

Latest News   Vanarama National League announcement
07th April 2015

 

"The VANARAMA NATIONAL LEAGUE" is coming..........along with two new broadcasting initiatives and a new three year TV deal with BT SPORT

The Football Conference is proud to announce that "The Vanarama National League" is coming to a ground near you! 

In a rebranding initiative, which will underline the competition's status at the pinnacle of the semi-professional game, and linked to a community programme the length and breadth of the country, the Vanarama National League will engage fans not only of the competition’s 68 member clubs but football throughout the UK and beyond. 

The new "Vanarama National League" will officially take its place in the football family on June 6th and the changes will include a new look logo, which whilst acknowledging the past looks to the future, to strengthen the competition's identity. 

The Vanarama National League will also launch a new broadcasting company, NLTV, which will be the first fully dedicated broadcasting channel focusing solely on the 68 member clubs, creating a regular narrative for the competition that will run throughout the season and lastly, in yet another first, the competition will create the all new NLTV Broadcasting Academy. 

Brian Barwick, the incoming chairman of the new Vanarama National League says: "I am delighted to be joining at this vibrant time with this exciting new branding. It offers so much to our existing partners whilst at the same time opening up potential new opportunities. I look forward to steering this great competition to new levels of awareness and visibility.” 

As a further resounding endorsement for this level of the game and in support of the new branding initiative, BT Sport have agreed a new three year deal with the competition which will extend the live coverage of matches and feature a regular weekly highlights show to be broadcast on a Sunday evening. 

Tony Kleanthous, board director responsible for broadcasting said: "We are delighted to be continuing our partnership with BT Sport and indeed embracing their expertise and experience. NLTV's aim is to launch a very affordable internet subscriber portal in 2016 where fans anywhere in the world can keep up to speed with what's going on across the activities of all member clubs and everything which affects them, their players and even their fans. The NLTV daily show will include short clips, podcasts and updates from clubs around the country and our new digital platform will also feature highlights from every game every week so you never need miss the action." 

Steve Norris, Commercial director at BT Sport said "We are proud to continue our sponsorship of this level of the game with a significant further investment for another three years. We are also pleased to support the academy initiative which underlines our commitment not only to grass roots football but the future education for all the young students out there who want a helping hand up the sports broadcasting ladder." 

Chairman of Vanarama David Bernstein says "My extensive involvement in football over the years has allowed me to be connected with a wide range of initiatives. I am particularly excited by this announcement and the Broadcasting Academy is an educational project to which Vanarama is proud to extend its support. We have demonstrated our commitment to football and their communities up and down the country and want to continue working with an organisation whose vibrancy and ethos matches our own." 

The final words come from the outgoing Chairman of the Football Conference, Brian Lee, who will complete his tenure at the end of this current season "Our announcement around the name change, broadcasting channel and academy excites me and I sincerely hope it excites the football world. I know I am passing on this organisation in good shape and there is much more to come with the positivity showed so far it can only be more exciting for our clubs, our fans and the future of our game". 

BT Sport has also teamed up with Vanarama to provide financial support for the all new "NLTV Broadcasting Academy". This will be another first for the industry, whereby forty eight media students from around the country will be given the opportunity to be part of this exciting new initiative where they will be trained in filming techniques and then embedded with clubs, provided with BT professional broadcasting equipment and taught by BT Sport technical staff how to film, edit and stream media to a new production hub. 

Tony Kleanthous added "This would never have been possible without the committed support of the commercial team at BT Sport and our hugely supportive title sponsor Vanarama who have committed extra funding and other resources to help get this worthy project up and running. This will provide students with the best teaching, using the best equipment in the best environment, real on the job training and I just can't wait to see the smiles on the faces of the graduates who receive the first diplomas we will be handing out next year".

Vanarama, the competition’s Title Sponsor, together with leading sports marketing agency SportQuake have combined to facilitate the name change and logo design, culminating in the announcement last month that Vanarama were extending not only their main sponsorship but adding support for the academy.  This underlines their commitment not only to the competition but also to education and community. SportQuake specialise in creating world class two-way partnerships between rights owners and brands.

Latest News   ANNUAL PRESENTATION EVENING
06th April 2015

In a month’s time the season will be over and we’re all be excited about the prospect of watching Sutton for less than a fiver a game (if you have a season ticket) on a 3G pitch (hopefully) with an academy bolstering the chances of young players coming through to the first team alongside our already exceptional youth team under James Bracken.

On Saturday, 16th May, when the dust has settled, it’s time to present our annual awards for players across the club’s main teams. Everyone is welcome as the youth, reserve and first team players claim the recognition of achievement.

The reserve and youth teams have both had amazing seasons with the younger team becoming the first team to have lifted the Surrey U18s cup for a third successive season when beating Farnham Town last week. They’re still on for the treble with games in hand in the league and a place in the League Cup final booked, while the reserves could also win silverware as they currently top the table and are progressing in the League Cup.

For some, the best moment of the evening will be Adrian Barry’s season-finale draw of the Strikers Are Key balls. Last season the Old Ds won over £2,000 and immediately delighted everyone by retreating to the bar.  Who will win this season’s last draw ? Will you be lucky? The money must be won.

Sign up for a place at the awards evening – it costs £10 for adults and £5 for children under sixteen and includes your hot-food buffet as per previous seasons. The evening runs from 7pm to 11pm with food served from 7.30pm. Email Lyall at editor@suttonunited.net or ask a club official on matchday to put your name on the list.

05th April 2015

We are proud and delighted to announce that Surrey County Cricket Club has teamed up with Sutton United FC and is offering its members and fans the opportunity to purchase a season ticket for the 2015/16 season at Gander Green Lane at the concessionary price of just £75 per person.

Latest News   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 19
04th April 2015

There was huge excitement in the Players' Bar today as the 19th Strikers are Key draw of the season unfolded.

Everyone was delighted to welcome club record goalscorer, Paul McKinnon, and the prolific Ricky Kidd - between them they amassed 464 goals for the U's - to the Strikers Are Key stage to conduct the draw. Noise levels rose when Paul pulled ball 45 out of the purple velvet bag, the ball owned by the syndicate " Lennie's size 9s".

Having failed in the quest last time out to choose the correct key, syndicate leader Dan Taylor delegated selection duties to colleague Ian Bell who duly obliged by choosing the right key and opening the safe to a crescendo of cheers. Syndicate members Bob Bone and Dave Burgess joined Dan and Ian in scooping the full £2,150 contained in the safe. When I left them, they were busy ordering at the bar....Well done to the four guys and thanks again to Paul McKinnon and Ricky Kidd, true Sutton United goal scoring legends, for helping with the draw. 

We move on to next Saturday and start again loading the safe for the penultimate draw of the season when Basingstoke come to town. Hoping the throat lozenges have worked by then, I will see you there!

Up the U's!




Latest News   SUFC Hall of Fame
04th April 2015

The fifth round of inductions into the Sutton United Hall Of Fame today saw three further names drafted into the company of those club legends already honoured, in front of a good crowd of former players enjoying another club Legends’ Day.

The three new inductees were:-

Don Stoker

A star from the 1950s who won Athenian League and London Senior Cup with the club, Don Stoker is still described by those who recall seeing him play as one of the club’s greatest players. Don was reputed to have a shot like a cannonball and was capped at amateur international by England and Great Britain, playing in the 1956 Olympics in Melbourne. Don later managed the club briefly before enjoying a successful managerial career with several local clubs including Walton & Hersham

Dario Gradi

Dario was one of several Loughborough College students to represent the club in the 1960s, where he became a regular in the side that won the Isthmian League and reached the Amateur Cup Final and he also played against Leeds United in the FA Cup 4th Round in 1970.  Required by archane FA rules to give up playing as an amateur in favour of a coaching career, Dario soon established his coaching credentials and although he managed the club for a short period in the mid 1970s he will be best remembered for managerial stints at Wimbledon, Crystal Palace and, most notably, Crewe Alexandra.

Rose Ford

Immortalised by the tea bar that bears her name, Rose was an instantly recognisable figure to almost anyone who has supported Sutton since the end of the second World War. Husband Dennis played for the club but Rose served the club, literally, for some six decades, introducing generations of fans to hot Bovril and cheese rolls. Rose also helped with washing the club’s kit and in providing food after training.

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

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

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




Latest News   Eastbourne v Sutton preview
27th March 2015

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

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

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

Latest News   Sales Hit Three Figures
21st March 2015

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

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

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

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

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

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

See you then.

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

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

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




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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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




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

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

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

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

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

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

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




Latest News   Sutton Seal Semis Spot with Spot-Kick Success

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   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   Strikers Are Key Draw Number 15
14th February 2015

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

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

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

Onwards and upwards. 

Up the U's!

Latest News   Gomis extends contract
10th February 2015

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

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

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

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

  

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

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

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

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