2006/07 MATCH REPORTS

2006/07 Reports:
Uís v Salisbury City (07/04/07)

Final score: 0-1

The U's went behind to a second minute goal and then never really troubled the Salisbury 'keeper. Richard Harris had the best chance in the first half, scuffing his shot straight at the ' keeper. This was shortly followed by an ambitious bicycle kick by Craig Tanner, which unfortunately was also straight at the 'keeper. The second half should've seen Salisbury reduced to ten men after Warren McBean was hauled back by the last defender. Once again though the Referee couldn't find his bottle and only booked the offender. Phil Wilson made a good one on one save to keep the U's in it. Salisbury also did there best to keep the scoring down when a striker headed wide of an open goal after the ball came back off the post. Sutton did force a couple of over dramatised dives out of the Salisbury 'keeper as he kept out a header and flicked a ball around the post for a corner.

Uís v Fisher Athletic (09/04/07)

Final score: 1-2

Sutton finally scored a goal after 360 minutes of drawing blanks and it only took two minutes as well. Warren McBean rose well in the box to head the ball down into the ground and it then looped into the top left corner. The U's then looked totally in control until Phil Wilson misjudged a cross and a Fisher player was free at the back post to head into an empty net. Both teams then squandered several chances before half time came. As the second half got underway Sutton continued to put the pressure on, but in the 62nd minute Fisher went two up. The yellows then pepped up but just couldn't find the finishing touch.

Team: P Wilson, R Palmer, L Gonsalves, R Blackwell (A Bray), C Tanner, S Taiwo (B Alimi), T Quinton, P Honey, R Gaynor, W McBean (R Harris), J Henry. Subs (not used): L Naughton, E Akuamoah

Uís v Eastbourne Borough (14/04/07)

Final score: 3-1

The U's made up for the away performance against Eastbourne by digging deep and defending bravely. Eastbourne will think that the score flatters Sutton but in all fairness the Yellows managed to take more of their chances and get bodies between the ball and goal when it mattered. The game was not without it's talking points, Jason Henry almost had his shirt pulled off up over his head, in the box and in plain view of the linesman, at one point in the first half and was man handled on several occasions in the second as well. The U's also survived a penalty shout as John Scarborough appeared to push over an Eastbourne striker to get to the ball. Sutton's first goal saw Warren McBean beat the offside trap and dart through to bring the ball under control, beat a defender who got back in time and then slot in calmly past the 'keeper. McBean was heavily involved in the second as well as he latched on to Jason Henry's cross, beat the 'keeper and then set up Bashiru Alimi to extend the advantage. Eastbourne pulled within one as a ball into the crowded box found an unmarked striker who easily finished. Sutton's third was from a Matt Gray corner and saw the towering John Scarborough rise at the back post to head home.

Team: P Wilson, R Palmer, J Scarborough, L Gonsalves (A Bray), C Tanner, P Honey, B Alimi, M Gray, J Henry, W McBean, R Gaynor (S Taiwo). Subs (not used): L Naughton, R Harris.

Uís v Histon (17/04/07)

Final score: 1-2

After a late kick off, due to traffic issues, Warren McBean struck in the 35th minute to give the visitors the lead over the already crowned champions. However, Histon weren't going to let the U's spoil their run in to the end of the season and two second half goals kept the points at the Glassworld Stadium.

Goals: Barker (52), Nightingale (72)



Uís v Newport County (21/04/07)

Final score: 1-1

Not for the first time this season the U's were cheated out of a chance at all three points by a set of shocking officials. Sutton got off to a great start when, in the third minute, Craig Tanner found the ball at his feet and cooly flicked it over the Newport 'keeper. Tanner almost had a second minutes later but his acrobatic flick was ruled out as he was offside. Neither side really challenged either 'keeper for the remainder of the half. But with minutes to go before half time Alan Bray perfectly timed a sliding challenge in the box, only to have a penalty given against him. To make it worse the Newport player then did a stop start run up and because of this Phil Wilson was already going to his right before the player had struck the ball. Cheated on two counts. Unsurprisingly Ian Hazel had a few choice words to say to the Ref after the first forty-five were up.
The second half also had a few incidents worth mentioning. Warren McBean was obstructed by the last defender after pushing the ball past him, no card was given. Tanner found himself on the floor as he was blatantly punched in the face, but the comedy trio in charge somehow were all looking the other way. Phil Wilson did produce a great save from a free kick to keep the U's on level terms. The introduction of Jason Henry proved a problem for the cumbersome left back who somehow got a free kick once he had been out-muscled by the comparatively tiny forward. All in all the yellows played very well against a team who are still challenging for a play off spot, but the men in black obviously had a soft spot for the team in Barcelona style shirts.

Team: P Wilson, R Palmer, J Scarborough, L Gonsalves, A Bray, C Tanner, T Quinton, P Honey, M Gray, W McBean, R Gaynor (J Henry). Subs (not used): L Naughton, B Alimi, S Taiwo, R Blackwell.

Goals: Tanner (3)

Uís v Thurrock (28/04/07)

Final score: 0-3

Sutton's last game of the season was a disapointing trip to relegation threatened Thurrock. The first half was a bleak affair and Sutton were denied the first goal after Tony Quinton's headed effort was ruled out, rather questionably, as offside.
In the second half Thurrock showed a lot more urgency and were rewarded with the game's opener. For the second week on the trot the Ref then pulled a decision out of thin air and sent Luke Naughton off after he successfully tackled a 'Fleet striker in a one on one situation. Replacement 'keeper Alan Bray was then beaten by the resulting free-kick, unfortunately the U's had already made all three of their substitutions so Phil Wilson could not be brought on. Bray was then beaten again after he did well to head clear a through ball. Sutton actually finished the game without a 'keeper as Bray was caught on the head by a Thurrock striker's boot with barely any time left on the clock. After treatment was received and Bray had left the field of play the Referee blew up and brought to a close Ian Hazel's first full season as Sutton manager.

Team: L Naughton, A Bray, R Blackwell, J Scarborough, R Palmer, S Taiwo (C Tanner), P Honey, T Quinton, R Gaynor (J Henry), W McBean (Z Graham), B Alimi. Subs (not used): P Wilson, R Harris
