I’m Barry Sheerwater

It’s back people. Or as the kids these days say, OMG. I’m also back once again to regale you with a tale that pretty much has nothing to do with the events mentioned and even less to do with the football that a mere few of us bore witness to, as once again, the finest […]

Come On Eileen

Aah, The Head. When I first started following Sutton, Leatherhead were real rivals in the old Rothmans Isthmian League and in that golden era for their football club without a shadow of a doubt one of the top non–league sides in the land, when there were certainly plenty of contenders kicking about. Of course, Sutton […]

A Boost of Confidence

Sorry folks, it’s only me again at the reins of yet another Sutton United tale from the boys at Gandermonium. But to make things even worse (for you), it’s that time of the year where a certain cup competition begins, one that has become the bane of the short-minded and the obsessive love of the […]

Banstead Mental Hospital FC

Delving into the past on a subject that has had very little coverage on-line or in print really is a shot in the dark but starting off from a few core reference points and then plunging in and seeing where the journey takes you can be hugely satisfying. And this trip through the brief senior […]

The Infernal Derby

For the third match in a row, Sutton are once again involved in a little wet spot of cup action. From the lows of seeing the boys being one penalty away from an Irn Bru Quarter-final match against East Fife, to the wonder that is football, with a crackin’ topsy-turvy FA Cup victory against the […]

15 Years and Counting…

OK people, standard fare for this blog. Sutton are once again in standard Surrey Senior cup action. At home against lower league opposition, in a competition that has us outright favourites considering we’re to the top placed team in the whole of the county. The only problem? As has become a custom for this we […]

Marchin’ Already

The greatest cup competition that this county can possibly offer is once again gracing the gloriously always green Gander Green Lane turf. And of course, it’s Gandermonium’s very own foreign correspondent and Surrey Senior Cup obsessive aficionado, The Duke, who is going to take you through all the highs and lows that could possibly happen on […]

The Other Price of Success

It’s back once again! The bounty of the county, the premier cup competition has returned for another season. So while the wait is still on to catch up with Dulwich Hamlet’s record tally of victories (16 to our 15), could this be the year? It’s been a while since we’ve won, over fourteen years and […]

The Agony and the Ecstasy

Well what a funny old week it’s been for the U’s. Not only have we had to bear witness to a Sutton team concede six goals at home in embarrassing fashion (I’m sure the last time that happened was probably against K’s in the Charity Shield at the arse end of the 20th Century), but […]
