Win Rate: 36% (from 11 games)

Last Updated: 01 December 2021

Our first meeting may have been in ’84 – but Sutton United became familiar faces in our Diadora League Premier Division days. In losing 4-1 during that first-ever encounter (the Hitachi Cup), our next match programme held the Us up as the yardstick for where a growing Boro’ needed to be. It took some time. But we got there. There was another cup defeat for us before reaching the Diadora League Premier Division in 1993.

The Us weren’t long back from the Conference; relegated in 1991 and very much in the mix for a return in the first few seasons back down a level. In both campaigns that we were in the Premier Division, the Us ended in fifth place. It’s just that, in the second of those, we ended as champions and left them behind. We’d go on to be reunited once again, of course, after the Us came back to the Conference in 1999-00. But we were on different levels at the time.

And that was that too… until their historic promotion into the Football League in summer 2021. Are we the yardstick for where a growing Us need to be? Or are we going to find ourselves back at their mercy? Unless you’re from the future, we just don’t know that yet…

Sutton United Ground Information

Away Fans’ Stand

Collingwood Road End

Ticket Info

Facilities for Disabled Fans

The Borough Sports Ground isn’t the most modern venue we’ll come across. But every effort is still made to accommodate fans with disabilities in line with its Equality Policy. To start, there’s quite a large car park at the ground and four accessible entrances. A covered area is also found inside the pitch perimeter fence for supporters who use a wheelchair.

In terms of ticket prices, all fans are charged at the appropriate rate. For individuals who need the help of a carer, however, the additional ticket is free of charge.

Sutton United’s website offers a dedicated page providing more detailed information for home and away supporters who have a disability. You can find it here.

Pre-Match Pints

We hear the social club behind the main stand did used to welcome away fans. We’re not yet sure if that’ll still be the case in League Two. If not, you’ll probably have to go further afield – especially for busier games. Coming in by rail isn’t an issue as there are plenty of pubs in the town centre to choose from. And the main Sutton station is only one stop from West Sutton, which is the nearest station to the stadium.

Sutton United Travel Information – Distance: 47 miles

By Road

For Sutton, take the counter-clockwise M25 and come off at Junction 10 for the A3. Head towards central London. As you reach Tolworth, exit the A3 and take the fourth exit at the roundabout for the A240. After crossing a railway, take the second exit at the roundabout for the A240 Ewell Bypass (which becomes the A24) for nearly a mile.

Next, turn left onto the A232 Cheam Road. Go over one roundabout and – after 2.4 miles – take the first exit at the roundabout for Gander Green Lane and go up past West Sutton station for the ground.

The club’s own car park is for permit holders on match days. But don’t panic. You’ll find on-street parking in the local area. You might also want to think about one of the car parks in the town centre. These are only a 10-minute walk from the stadium.

By Rail


Come out of the station onto Gander Green Lane and turn right. The stadium is not too far up here on the right.
