Football London Youth Games

On Wednesday 22nd March 2017, the football team travelled up to Crystal Palace's National Sports Centre to represent Sutton at the London Youth Games. The team played in a group of 4, winning one game and drawing two - seeing them top of the group - and qualified for the Trophy Competition in the afternoon. The boys then went on to win another group stage, which got them through to the quarter finals. Here they beat Southwark 1-0, and Barnet in the Semi-finals by the same score line. In the overall final, Team Sutton were the best side for a large part of the game, but unfortunately couldn't score. They were narrowly beaten 1-0 in a sudden-death penalty shoot-out. An utterly outstanding achievement to be come second out of 33 London Boroughs, and the furthest Sutton have gone in the 40 years of the competition! Superb result, boys - we are all very proud of you!
