Sutton Athletic History
Sutton Athletic Football Club was formed in 1898 and is one of four clubs, in the Kent County Football League, that has been founded for over 100 years. From its beginning, many of the players, managers and committee members have come from the village of Sutton-at-Hone and their ownership and commitment to the club is as prevalent today as it was all those years ago.
The squad size stands close to 60 players and the competition amongst these, for places, is fierce and exchange of players between the teams continues to be done amicably which has resulted in squad enhancement and good team ethics. Off the field the club continues to grow and goes from strength to strength and with the club developing the new Academy sides, having increased youth sides and the inclusion of The Sutts first ever Vets side, its exciting times at the Sutts. The club and ground continues to develop and a fantastic location for sport and community hub.
The 2016-17 was impressive and the club finished in 3rd place but unfortunately lost a lot of the players that got the, there so the following campaign was more of a rebuilding one. After a poor start they lads finished superbly and ended in a reasonable 11th place.
