A Message from the Manager

5 May 2016

A BIG THANK YOU to our superb fans who have been simply terrific this season, turning up in increasing numbers home and away, and vocal too. It was a real fillip for the team to see and hear the banks of amber in the crowd, proving that we really are all #inittogether at this marvellous football club. As I mentioned in my post-match interview after the win at Maidstone, it was a night that made me very proud to be associated with Sutton United FC. The team performed magnificently on the pitch and the fans were wonderful on the terraces. A true team effort! Then, the increasing attendances at Gander Green Lane, culminating in the huge crowd for the match v Ebbsfleet, proves to me that the level of support we can generate to watch our team can continue to increase. Then of course we have the club's amazing season ticket offer! Who would have believed a couple of years ago that we would have 800 season ticket holders already signed up for the new season before the old season had even finished! Of course it is an unbelievable offer; the opportunity to watch 23 Home League games in the National League plus 5 or 6 high profile pre-season friendlies for a maximum hitherto of £99 is just incredible value! But we want to see GGL full of people every week and you, our fans, have a big part to play in the team's fortunes. We look forward to another highly exciting season in 2016/17 TOGETHER. My job now is to assemble the squad within an acceptable budget to enable us to compete in the higher division. As I mentioned in one interview recently, we're not planning to go up there just to make up the numbers! This is where I really need your help; hence the release of the “Boost the Budget” campaign, where ALL funds contributed will go towards the playing budget for 2016/17. For a minimum of just £10 per month (Jul – Apr) , you can own a piece of your football club by receiving two shares in SUFC Ltd (per £100 contributed) and, in so doing, help me to put together a squad of which we can all hopefully be very proud, as we take Sutton United into the top tier of Non-League football where we all want to be. Full details are on the web-site , or go direct to the application form. Thank you in advance for your continued, fantastic support Yours in amber, Paul Doswell
