Sutton's women's team continued their recent fine form by recording a second win in the space of seven days against AFC Acorns at East Grinstead and a fourth win in the last five games, a run which has seen U's score 22 goals.
As last week, when Acorns led 2-0 before Sutton came back with five goals, U's had to work hard for the victory despite leading at half time thanks to Sarah Chapman's early goal. Acorns levelled early in the second half, but U's went back in front just before the hour as Darcy Wells converted a penalty after Olivia Watson had been fouled. The home side equalised again with fifteen minutes left, but U's weren't to be denied the three points as Abbie Measures scored the winner inside the last five minutes. U's are now seventh in the table, six points behind third placed Millwall but with games in hand over five of the top six. Next week we are scheduled to be at the VBS against second placed Worthing, who lost their unbeaten record today against league leaders Ebbsfleet, the scheduled visitors to Sutton in a fortnight's time.
There was a huge win for our development side, who beat Guildford Saints 14-1, while the reserves drew 1-1 at home to Woking Development. Next week the reserves are away to Milford & Witley while the development side face Cranleigh at the David Weir Centre.
There was also success for our disability side Sutton United Ganders who beat Southwark Stars 2-0 at the VBS. Jamie Reynolds scored in the first half, put through to beat the Southwark goalkeeper, and Luke Fox scored the second from close range following a corner.
