It’s been a while…

My recent absences from Kingstonian matches have been entirely intentional – I even had a couple of days off work last week for the same reason, which is the need to recharge a little. To a certain extent, it’s been successful and needed doing. The down side is that I have been missing K’s continued …

It’s nosebleed time…

This is an unusual feeling, we’re nearly at the end of November and here we are, just a single point out of the play-off zone. Confidence in the team and management is increasing, expectations are going up, belief in the men in those red and white hoops is escalating. Maybe the hankies should out to …

Now let’s win away…!

Kingstonian’s players at least have gotten used to the idea of King George’s Field as a home venue – the guys have been outstanding in a large number of recent home games. The latest one, against a very good Tonbridge Angels team, can be classed ultimately a point gained, though initially it didn’t feel that …

K’s find another way to win

It was always going to be difficult, Lewes have started their first season back in the Premier Division like a house on fire and can rightly be regarded as one of those clubs who are shooting for promotion. For Kingstonian to categorise themselves in that echelon, then a win was absolutely necessary. We got it, …

Kingstonian and Bedford Town serve up a treat

To use journalistic-speak, this was a pulsating cup tie. The K’s and the Eagles slugged it out for more than ninety minutes, the result always in doubt, both teams giving everything to try and win the game. It was an excellent positive advert for non-league football. Kingstonian, the home team, had by far the majority …

We don’t need another cliché

No, I’m not going to say seventh heaven or any rubbish like that, but Saturday’s game against Harlow Town was pretty good. Firstly, I do feel a little sorry for followers of the Hawks, a long journey to Tolworth followed by an abject display by their team. Been there, done it, suffered it. But on …

K’s win big and I’m not there…

For once in the Surrey Senior Cup, Kingstonian did what they should do, and comfortably defeated a team two leagues below them – there have been too many occasions when Combined Counties League teams were far more up for these games, wanted it far more than we did and deservedly knocked us out. This time …

K’s fall short again on the South Coast

Including the pre-season friendlies, we’ve visited Weymouth, Hastings (twice), Bognor Regis, Brighton (en route to Whitehawk) and now Worthing on the South Coast of England. Zero victories this season. I no longer like visiting the South Coast. It has become synonymous with disappointment. With the FA Trophy draw being made this lunchtime, I am quite …

A decent afternoon

Saturday’s game against Folkestone Invicta was overall very good. The weather was foul as it chucked it down all day, the adjustment to a 2pm kick-off was actually more difficult to cope with than I thought, but when the game did start, it was good. It was more like the Kingstonian that we thought we …
