Woking v Sutton Common Rovers
Surrey Senior Cup 2nd Round
7.45pm on Tuesday 3 November 2015

The Cards start their Surrey Senior Cup trail tomorrow evening when they take on Sutton Common Rovers.


One hopes that league form won’t count for anything in this tie, given that the Cards’ defeat on Saturday at Kidderminster Harriers was their seventh in the last nine games. Presumably, Garry Hill will give a run-out to players who have been on the fringe of the first team in recent games but he may also want to use this opportunity to help to improve cohesion and understanding in the squad.


Sutton Common Rovers were first formed in 1978 and have gone through a number of name changes in that time, most recently dropping the name Mole Valley SCR. This season saw them return to Sutton to ground-share with Sutton United. They play in the Combined Counties League Premier Division and are currently in 17th place. On Saturday they had a notable 1-0 win at Worthing United in the FA Vase.

A familiar name in their squad to many Woking fans will be that of Anson Cousins, an Academy graduate who played a number of times for the first team before joining Hampton and Richmond Borough and Chertsey. He’s just notched up his 50th appearance for the club. Other players who’ve worn the red and white halves at one level or another include Harry Smart and Richard Smith.

The Cards Trust AGM is taking place the same evening, beginning at 7.30pm in the Cardinals Bar. The Club has agreed that those attending the AGM can be admitted free of charge: the business is likely to be over in time to watch the whole of the second half. It is very important that there is a quorum for the AGM, in view of the elections that are taking place, so please come along to the meeting.


The Cards don’t have a fixture next weekend. They are at home to Braintree Town on Tuesday 10 November and then at home again on Saturday 14 November, when Macclesfield Town are the visitors. Come and help lift the side at these two very important home games as they battle to overcome a lean spell.

Come on, you Cards!

P.S. Don’t forget the Sinatra and Michael Bublé tribute night this Friday.
