DEFENDING champions Shirley Athletic always knew that this would a tough trip to the consistent and organised Sutton Utd.
Scott Kite collected a cross from Matty Whitehouse and found the top left hand corner of the goal to score for Shirley.
Within five minutes of the restart, Kite was involved with Shirley’s second goal. His through ball found Ben Ince who coolly slotted the ball home.
Sutton threw everything at Shirley but could not find the goal they desperately needed.
