Sutton United Colts

Sutton United Colts is the grassroots section affiliated to Sutton United Football Club, and has 20 teams playing between the U7 and U16 age groups.
Our Sutton United Colts teams play in the Surrey Youth League on a Sunday, and at the competitive age groups, most teams play in the Premier Elite Division.

The Colts strive to offer the very best standard of football outside of a professional academy environment, and our grassroots games are regularly watched by professional scouts from Sutton United, as well as other professional academies from the Premier League, Championship, and beyond.

Real Pathways

Our Cat3 Professional Academy at Sutton United Football Club often send scouts to watch the Colts play and we offer a realistic pathway from the Colts to the Academy for those players who excel training and playing with Sutton United Colts. More than 40 players were promoted from the Colts to the Academy at the end of the 2021/22 season, and we’re proud to be the biggest club in the area offering these pathways.

The Sutton United Academy in turn seeks to develop players that are one day ready to play in the Sutton United first team, which currently plays in the English Football League, Division Two.

The 2022/23 season has seen first team appearances at Sutton United from players who have previously played in the Colts, and the Academy.

Want to trial for Sutton United Colts?

Trials to play for Sutton United Colts for the football season starting in SEPTEMBER 2024 will take place on Saturday 18 and Sunday 19 May 2024.

Please note these trials are NOT for Sutton United FC or Sutton United Academy.

Sutton United Colts have two teams per age group from Under 7 to Under 16 and all teams participate in the Surrey Youth League.  All league games take place on a Sunday.

Please note….every year we receive over 1,000 requests for a trial. We want to provide a good and safe experience for all those who attend a trial and so not all those who request a trial will be offered one. Most teams will be looking for a small number of players and who prefer to play in specific positions. Should our coaches wish to offer the opportunity to trial we will be in touch nearer the time (late April) with more information and provide the specific time, location and what will be expected.
