Match Previews

Horley v Sutton - MATCH POSTPONED AND REARRANGED FOR WEDNESDAY

5 March 2024

Tonight's scheduled Surrey Senior Cup tie away to Horley Town has been postponed due to a waterlogged pitch, and the teams will now try again on Wednesday, 6 March, kick off 7.30pm

Horley play in the Combined Counties League and are currently in 15th place, three places above Epsom & Ewell, who U's beat in the previous round. Horley reached this stage with an away win against another Combined Counties League side Guildford City. 

Sutton achieved that 2-1 win against Epsom in the last round with a team formed almost entirely of the academy squad, and a similar line-up is expected on Tuesday with the possible addition of a couple of first team squad players if manager Steve Morison feels they need a game. The academy side's game at Plymouth on Saturday was postponed due to the weather.

Sutton and Horley met in the same competition in November 2019, U's winning 3-0 at the VBS with goals from Wayne Brown, Aaron Jarvis and Tommy Wright.

Admission is £8 for adults, £4 for concessions and free for Under 16s with a paying adult. The ground is the New Defence ground in Anderson Way, behind the Leisure Centre, post code RH6 8SP. Travelling down the A217 turn left in to Mill Lane just before the roundabout at Hookwood, and after crossing the River Mole turn right in to Court Lodge Road and right again in to Anderson Way.

If the scores are level after ninety minutes the game will be decided on penalties, with the winners at home to Corinthian Casuals in the quarter finals.

Match report for Horley Town 1 Sutton United 3

6 March 2024

Horley Town 1 (Alder 35) Sutton United 3(Vorster 5, Tume 9,79)

Sutton's academy side claimed a second Combined Counties League scalp in the Surrey Senior Cup with an impressive victory at Horley Town. Apart from goalkeeper Matt Kerbey, as at Epsom in the last round U's fielded a side of young academy players and deserved a victory that always looked likely after George Vorster and Vinnie Tume had scored in the first ten minutes.

Sutton might have gone ahead in the first minute, Vorster going clear but denied by goalkeeper George Hyde, with Khyan Edwards seeing his effort from the rebound scrambled off the line, but the two players soon combined to good effect as Vorster met an Edwards cross at the far post with a neat volley, and four minutes later Cameron Sullivan's chip in from the left was converted first time by Tume to give U's a flying start.

Liam Moore shot just wide and Joden Trickett had a shot saved at the near post as Sutton came close to extending their lead, but after a scare when Sam Harper shot wildly over after capitalising on a defensive error, and Junior Eccleston was booked for hauling down Joshua Alder, Horley did pull a goal back when Alder received a lay-off from Scott Walker and sent a low first time shot beyond Kerbey in to the corner of the net.

An untidy second half saw few chances at either end, Sutton scrambling the ball away from the six yard box when substitute Cameron  Gyeabore deflected a shot goalwards, and at the other end wasting some promising positions with disappointing crosses. Edwards shot just wide from the edge of the penalty area, but with ten minutes to go Trickett's low shot was spilled by Hyde and Tume pounced to force the ball in to the net and secure a home tie against Corinthian Casuals in the last eight.
