The best way to keep up to date with Sutton Common Rovers


Pre-season ends with a win

2 weeks ago By Gary Brigden

Our final pre-season fixture against a strong Sutton Utd Academy side ended with a 3-1 win

Daryl Cooper-Smith fired us ahead in the first half, calmly lobbing the keeper, before Kevin Wheller guessed correctly to save a harshly awarded Sutton Utd penalty.

Both sides missed chances in the first half, but we went in 1-0 up at the break.

Further chances were squandered early in the second half before Sutton levelled things up on 65 minutes with a neat move and finish.

We restored our advantage on 70 minutes when Matt Auletta and Cooper-Smith combined for Sam Johnson (pictured), and the scoring was completed with about ten to go when Cooper-Smith squared to Kristian Wynter who fired home.
