It has been great weekend all-round for Sutton United. The first team win over Hendon in the FA Trophy had been preceded by two games featuring the U's Community teams, both against Queens Park Rangers. Then, on Sunday, Sutton United Ladies progressed into the next round of the JGMT Cup with a 4-2 win away to South London Laces with goals from Jodie Fernandes, Faye Butler, Jade Johnson and Keisha Small.
Manager Duncan Muller was delighted with the display, "We attack with such pace and skill, the team are reaping the benefits of the hard work they put in. Our focus moves back to the league now with a home game versus Wealdstone."
On Saturday the Sutton United Community Teams enjoyed a visit from our friends from Queens Park Rangers that brought a hatful of goals.
Sutton United U's 8 [ Taylor 4 Hales 2, Campbell,Beadle ] QPR 2 Despite conceding an early goal it was the U's who took control and played some very attacking football with the back in form striker Josh Taylor leading the front line well, and scoring 4 goals and with Tommy Campbell causing the QPR defence problems and supplying the frontline with excellent unselfish play. QPR played some great football but were being caught by the U's fast counter attacks. The other U's goals came from Hales  Campbell and Beadle.
Sutton United Hunters 8 [West N 3 ,Leconte 2, Philips ,Cardello ,Carter ]. QPR 4 Harry Phillips in action against QPRThis game was a much more even, with QPR enjoying the majority of the possession and this really was a great advert for disability football. Striker Nick West was the outstanding Hunters performer, scoring a great hat trick, and supported with great play from Anthony Carter who scored a cracking goal. The game was a joy to watch as both teams passed the ball around well and watching Harry Phillips celebrate his goal was an unforgettable moment. The game's most inspirational player was the outstanding QPR goalkeeper who made several fine saves.Steve Preedy, joint coach of the Sutton United Hunters , said “The result was not the important thing, but watching both sets of inspirational players was a joy to watch, this was really a great advert for disability football"Anthony Carter of the Sutton United Huntersdraws a great save from QPR goalkeeper
