As there were no GBG listed pubs in Sutton itself, the pre-match pleasantries had to be undertaken in nearby Carshalton, where The Hope offered 6 real ales, the pick of the bunch being (North London based) Redemption Brewery's Hopspur.
The second period was pretty much a like a training session for Sutton as, having obviously won the game, they had all the possession and Bognor never looked like getting a foothold back into the match. The U's did have plenty more chances, but the only goal scored in the half came through man-of-the-last-round (after bagging four goals v Dulwich Hamlet) Leroy Griffiths, when he shot home after 74 minutes.
