2010/11 First Team Squad:
Ebrima Chorr (Manager): Ebrima started his trade back in his playing days when he was player coach for Janijatos FC, he finally hung up his boots and took charge of Jupiters football club and guided them to 'nawettan' league glory and also guided the same team into the second division but unfortunately got disqualified and relegated for the club breaking 'nawettan' leagues. He has since then joined Sutton and guided them as semi-finalist in his first season.
Sainey Tamba (Ast. Manager): Sainey joined the technical staff this year on Ebrima’s invitation. He was a core component of the team last season until he broke his leg against JFK Academy in the league cup quarter-final. He is just new into the management business but has had a very illustrious careers playing for some very big clubs at this level.
Yunusa Badjie (Trainer): A very young lad with grate passion for the game. Yunusa was himself a founding member player of the team but decided he was best in management and Ebrima gave him a shot at training the team as well as managing the youth team shortly before it was discarded, and he has lived up to expectation.
Seedy Fofana (Kit Man): Another former junior player who gave up playing is now the club trainer. Seedy was a promising goalkeeper but had to give up the game after an incident which left him with a broken rib, and upon the doctor’s advice asked never to return in between the sticks. He joined Ebrima's back room staff last season and has got a lot to learn on his new level.
Ke Jatta (First Aid Attendant): Ke is a red-cross trainee and is a national Red Cross member and staunch U's fan. So when he was approached by Ebrima to volunteer as medical personnel it was too good an exciting offer to turn down. He takes really good care of the players in games and in training as well and being a red-cross trained first aid attendant makes the U's team very fortunate and lucky.
Imam Bojang: After last year's eye catching performance in the latter stages of the nawettan league, Imam has developed and made the no.1 shirt his own. Although he may not be of desired height in a goalkeeper, but the Jangbur born star has agility in abundance and a terrific reaction and also a very good reader and organizer of the game.
Basiru: Since joining the club two seasons ago, Bas has been an unfortunate squad player making only a few ghost appearances for the 1st team before taking leave to attend to some family issues. He came back last December and has since been showing glimpses of potential in low key friendlies and will have to be patient as he is behind the in-form Imam.
Lamin Jawla: This is the third time Jawla is rejoining the club after having left shortly before the club was renamed Sutton United and climbed a step higher to the second division league. He rejoined the club twice in 2008 after short stints in the second division only to sign up for another team closer to his hometown. Lamin Jalwa recently moved closer to LaminVillage for employment reasons and the U's were just happy enough to register him again.
Edrisa Bojang: One of the few revelations of the former Sutton Utd youth team, Edi was allowed to train with the senior squad after the youth team was discarded and he made a mark on the manager right away with his great style of play, breaking opponents play and launching waves of attack up and down the right wing.
Lamin Chorr: It is hard to believe that at just a tender young age, Lamin Chorr is skipper for the team and also a key influential figure in the dressing room. The local lad is right to claim responsibility for the stability for the team's 1st choice “back four”. He was by far the club's best player last season and has even improved beyond expectation taking into consideration the few games the team partook since they were knocked out of the league's quarters in November, 2009. He is without doubt the team biggest asset and would not be too long before he makes a giant leap to the next level
Sheikh Omar: The very best of the game reader ever to adorn the U's shirt. He is quick and also brutal in the tackle. A very intelligent player, this young man has all the desired potential in a center-back and has been a very positive addition to the team since joining last year.
Alagie Joof: Alagie was until 2009 the team's most experienced and most consistent player but eventually left to join home town club Falcons of Abuko. Things had not gone well for him at Falcons amid the high expectations with niggling injuries not helping. He joined the on board for the second time when the opportunity presented itself for another stint at Sutton united.
Kamarada Manneh: Kams was initially recruited for the youth team but after it was discontinued, he was thrown in with the first team and he has since impressed. Definitely one for the future with a massive opportunity lying ahead, Serves as cover-up anywhere from the back four to central midfield thanks to his versatility
Mamadi Djame: Mamadi is in his second season with the U's and is a very experienced figure and a box-to-box central midfielder. He combines his game with breaking up and organizing play and to some extent doing a big share of the distributing responsibility in the midfield. He has a very acute eye for passing and tactically aware of his runs and spacing in the middle of the pitch.
Mansally Janko: 'Juda' has finally come of age after spending the majority of his past two seasons in the team as a fringe player. Playing along much experienced heads like Djame and Michael has made him develop into a really fine player and self confidence is what he's gaining game after game. Another one definitely for the future
Landing Jarjou: This young phenomenon was stalked for two seasons by Ebrima and he finally got his man at the end of the nawettan season in 2009. He is a great passer of the ball, possess a powerful shot and also strong in the air. He is a versatile player and can operate anywhere between defensive and offensive midfield roles.
Michael Jarjou: Very experienced player who has actually played at the very top but that career ended because of disciplinary issues and eventually dropped down two leagues to play for Sutton. He had a short stint in the 2nd division before joining Sutton this season. He has ever since showed a huge improvement with maturity which seems to have come with the managers strict emphasis on discipline and is an inspiration for the young players.
Anthony Doe: A player with good physical abilities relative technical skills. At age 19, the attacking midfielder belies his age with intelligence both on and off the ball. His defense splitting passes, conjuring ball skills, good vision as well as good work ethics and can be regarded as a considerable goal threat.
Josephus Jlatuh: Commonly known as ‘SWEET LEGS’, he is a Liberian footballer who is technically skills and has good physical abilities. He is a versatile Left midfielder as well as both flanks player, he can also operates as a supporting striker. The teenager is technically gifted with a crafty Left foot, has good skills, good vision, good attitude, great pace as well as good set piece delivery.
Ebrima Bah: Ebrima joined the U's from Viking FC in the league last year and has since been an avid member of the team. He is a cultural left winger and a good crosser of the ball. He works tirelessly and always gives it his best for the team and the fans, which has won him popularity among the fans. Now that he has experienced a season and settled into the team, all signs are that he is going to be a better player with more minutes in games.
Muhammed Maselley: ‘Aska’ is a fan favorite and has been scouted by other newettan teams from other zones but opted for Sutton because he is closer to the U’s and also works in Lamin. Football is easier than it looks with a ball at Aska’s feet and he is exciting to watch and is also blistering quick! He also possess a good sense of humour and is the team’s prankster.
Musa Joof: He has been the team's leading goal scorer in the league last season despite operating on the right wing. Musa is a cultural type of a winger and is popular for his pin-point crosses and makes it look easy watching him knocking balls into the penalty area, he is also a dead ball specialist and the team's first choice spot taker.
Ousman Jarju: Very good player with the ball at his feet and on his day can take on a whole defense. He is a very intelligent player and organizer as well but needs to work on his finishing aspect of his game. His tall lanky figure gives him the added advantage and can operate on both wings, through the middle and even center forward as he has previously been deployed.
Lamin Djata: A talent unearthed in the neighborhood playing street football. Mane was immediately approached by a technical member of the U's team and was eventually brought over and has proved to be a big hit, a fact proven in his involvement in the 1st team at just 15yrs old. Another of just several talented cunning players in the team and most importantly has a very positive attitude towards the game and always willing to learn from his seniors.
Jojo: Joined the club in January, 2010 after he was recommended to the manager as he was making a name for himself in his native Banjul. It turned out a good deal; he is the most skillful player in the team with a bag of tricks as well. He is terrific on the ball and also possesses an eye for goal and a clean strike of the ball. He scored two goals in his debut in a low-key friendly.
Sulayman Sanyang: He is a natural goal poacher and at times, single-handedly carries the team when called upon. However his appearances for the team have been limited due to his education commitments, and only gets to be with the team shorter than needed. The lad is a finisher and has a natural instinct of scoring goals, a real goal machine!
Ebou Sey: Brought into the team from the youth team, Ebou has shown some great promise coming on from the bench to score three crucial goals last season. His positional awareness and technical ability makes it hard to believe that the lad is just in his second season with the first team. Definitely one for the future if he continues to work hard the way he has been doing.
Kebba Sawaneh: Joined the club towards the very end after his team in the Serrekunda East zone failed to qualify for the Nawettan proper. He has been very impressive in training and scored in each of the last three test game with all three being winning goals, he also comes with a lot of maturity and experience. Despite joining a few weeks back, Kebba looks set to get the nod over the other two strikers in Ebrima’s pecking order.
