Non-League preview: Sutton United praying for a change in fortunes after signing former Saints striker

Sutton United manager Paul Doswell has signed former Southampton trainee Jamie White in a bid to bolster Sutton’s attacking options ahead of their trip to Bromley.

White, who signed for the club on his 25th birthday, was released by Bristol Rovers earlier this week and will be available for Saturday’s clash.

Sutton are 16th in the Vanarama Conference South table and winless in their past four league matches since a 1-0 away victory over Farnborough in October.
