Sutton’s pre-season campaign concludes this Saturday with a return to Farnborough’s Easy As HGV stadium to take on Barnet, and having lost the last two friendlies U’s will be keen to record a confidence-boosting victory to take in to next Saturday’s EFL debut fixture at Forest Green.
U’s met Barnet just two months ago in the last game of the National League season, with Barnet winning 2-0 a week after U’s had secured the championship and promotion (above, Adam Lovatt going close for U’s).
As with last week’s game against Aldershot, it’s part of a double-header at the ground, and this time it’s Sutton who go first, with the game against Barnet kicking off at 12 noon, followed by Farnborough v Maidenhead at 3.30.
Tickets for our game are priced £12 for adults, £10 for concessions, £6 for Under 16s. Under 14s are admitted free if accompanied by a paying adult. Tickets can be bought here. Car parking is available priced £2.
If you want to stay and watch the Farnborough game there is a special rate for the two games of £16 for adults, £14 for concessions and £8 for Under 16s. Those tickets can be bought through the same link. In all cases there is a small booking fee.
Pay on the day will be available at the turnstiles but on-line booking is encouraged to minimise cash handling on the day.
Farnborough’s ground (below) is in Cherrywood Road, Farnborough, post code GU14 8HD, and is just over a mile from Frimley station and a mile and a half from Farnborough main line – in both cases travel from Sutton at 12 or 42 minutes past the hour via Clapham Junction and in some cases also changing at Woking. Frimley takes just under two hours (additional change at Ash Vale), Farnborough about an hour and a half. Anyone travelling from further out in Surrey could also use Farnborough North on the North Downs line. More detailed directions are here.
We will have a Mixlr commentary on the game, but after this game our commentary service will switch to the EFL’s I-Follow system. We regret that it is unlikely we will be able to provide free commentaries on EFL games in line with EFL rules, but further details will follow during the week.
