Sutton United FC (Gambia) is a football club founded by some children but was properly established when they started attending Bible classes in 1999. The club’s aim has always been to create a sustainable club for the long term which will be owned and democratically run by its members, which will serve as a vehicle of development to the village and its near by surroundings and one in which they can fully participate in.
Sutton United FC (Gambia) is intended to create a football club which addresses the concerns which many local fans have had over the past with how clubs and football had been developed, culminating in the unprofessional strategies past club’s had been managed. We will follow the best traditions of former local teams by developing policies which encourage nation wide football development, professionalism in the game, youth participation and over all discipline in terms of both playing and supporting.
Sutton United FC (Gambia) is a fans owned, democratic, and non-profit making entity and the club shall focus on the election of a board of directors by the members, the appointing of roles and titles to members and the direction of the club at AGM’s.
We have ambitious and long term plans and moreover, we want to be seen as a good example as one of the most successful and well managed clubs in Gambian football, exercising how a good club can be run in the interests of its members and still benefit its local community.
