It’s the final countdown

Except we’re not heading for Venus, which is a good thing because trying to land on that planet does no favours for your hair. It has felt rather manic in the last few days, however you have to believe me when I say that I’ve had it very easy compared to plenty of people at …

Are you not entertained?

The last few weeks have been fun. Even the majority of the not-so-fun bits have been more fun than most things in the last few years. After enjoying the trip to Brightlingsea (a set of words not normally spoken or written), it was off up to Macclesfield Town for our FA Cup First Round tie. …

A privilege in Brightlingsea

Normally when there’s a Kingstonian game reasonably far from home, there’s one of two plans. One, especially if it’s a midweek game, is not go. Two, usually on a Saturday, is to drive either all of the way or most of the way there on the Friday night, not have to worry too much about …

My hovercraft is full of eels

Let’s face it, sometimes more time is wasted trying to think of a title for these blogs, so today I just couldn’t be bothered. Last Saturday’s FA Trophy game with Corinthian-Casuals was not the greatest. After going three goals up early in the piece without even trying very hard, we did our very best to …

Back down with a bump

It’s amazing how often this happens – momentous history-making result followed rapidly by reality grabbing an electric eel and slapping you in the face with it. But, to the Bognor game last night a little later. Monday night was FA Cup First Round draw night, and it was absolutely bloody terrifying. Firstly, there was desperation …

I was there…

I’ve said for years words similar to “The FA Cup is for other people, it seems” as Kingstonian crash out to a lower level team once again. Well, at last, the FA Cup is for us. And we, and I mean supporters, club officials, management, players, everyone with Kingstonian somewhere in their hearts, we thoroughly …

Aiming for the Darts

Saturday sees one of the biggest days in Kingstonian’s recent history, as the K’s nip across to Northern Kent to face National League South team Dartford in the Fourth Qualifying Round of the FA Cup. It’s the furthest that K’s have got in this competition since the 2000-01 season, albeit the club were exempt to …

Does the tradition re-start?

I must admit to having felt a bit robbed when the final whistle went after our 1-1 draw with Weston-super-Mare. I think it’s natural to feel this way when you’re just minutes away from the Fourth Qualifying Round and conceded a penalty. But I think the aggrieved attitude that I have basically points the finger …
