Kingstonian Reserves 1-2 Reading Under-21s
118 people bothered to turn up to see Kingstonian Reserves entertain Reading Under 21s. More would have been at The Battle Of The Hoops had there not been a Supporters Club meeting at the same time, meaning the man from London Tonight was a bit confused about the lack of spectators in what he thought was 'a proper game'. The match allowed fringe players to compete for a place in the squad for Saturday. Familiar names included Mike Lester, Danny Smith, Junior Kadi, Ronaldo Dean Thomas and Luke Basford. Keeper, Richard Hurst, captained the team and played a blinder but still ended up on the losing side as K's were beaten 2-1. James Taylor scored the K's goal, in the match refereed by the Ray Lewis.

Search old K's results
Yet another page has been added to the K's Web repertoire, but this one is amazing (even if we do say so ourselves). Go to the new Database Search page to find out more, but basically, you can now search through the K's results since the move to Kingsmeadow (1989/1990) and find out whatever you like. If you want to see a list of games where Akuamoah scored in a league game with a crowd of less than 1000, you can !!

Telegraph: Conference: Leworthy looks to the long term
From today's Daily Telegraph:

Conference: Leworthy looks to the long term by Nicholas Harling

DAVID Leworthy must have been only half joking when, on the coach back from Kingstonian's 2-1 victory at Morecambe, he suggested to club manager Geoff Chapple: "Are we going to discuss this five-year contract?"

Although one day past his 37th birthday, Leworthy still had a valid argument. The former Spurs striker had just returned from a three-match suspension to score not only Kingstonian's winner - from Colin Luckett's fine through ball - but a beautiful goal, according to Chapple, in the 3-0 midweek FA Cup replay win at Boston.

"I had to laugh," said Chapple. "But the way David is going we won't be able to write him off for another couple of years."

Kingstonian had not scored during Leworthy's ban. "We never had the chances then that we've had since David's been back," explained a less than magnanimous Chapple who was, nevertheless, offered a slice of Leworthy's birthday cake on the long trip home.

Leworthy's 12th goal of the season came after Derek Allan headed Kingstonian in front. Morecambe's equaliser came from Darren Lyons with a speculative cross.

And as Carl Orford saved Stevenage with two goals, including a last-minute equaliser, in a 3-3 draw at Northwich, Rushden & Diamonds stayed top with a 1-0 win at Scarborough.

Kingstonian 0-1 Yeovil Town

Suspensions and injuries
K's may be without four first-teamers for this evening's visit by Yeovil. Leworthy remains suspended, and Stewart is still out, while Wingfield and Akuamoah are extremely doubtful after injuries picked up on Saturday. Chapple, therefore, has signed some players temporarily as short-term cover. Richard Thompson returns from Wycombe and Michael Norbury of Gainsborough join K's on loan.

Previous Meetings: Kingstonian v Yeovil
The Previous Meetings page is, as usual, ready and shows the previous meetings of Ks V Yeovil since '92/'93. K's have only lost once in this time, and if you compare the two teams' standings in the form guide, all bodes well.

Saturday 9th October 1999
Kingstonian 1-1 Hayes
Colin Luckett's seventh goal of the season, direct from a corner (via 2 Hayes' heads) gave K's an early lead, but a late equaliser meant that fifth place was denied.
[top of the page]
Rushden 1-0 Kingstonian
K's relinquished their top of the table place today by going down one goal to nil. A Stewart and Leworthy-less team went down to a first half goal and just couldn't get the equaliser that their efforts deserved. Still, K's could regain the top spot on Wednesday as they are involved in the only mid-week match, against Yeovil.
[top of the page]
Result round-up
Elsewhere in the league, Kidderminster knocked four past Yeovil, leaving K's in second place in the table. Woking have dropped below Sutton after losing 2-0 to Hereford, leaving them with the much-sought title "Surrey's third club".

Friday 8th October 1999
From today's Independent


THE LEADERSHIP of the Nationwide Conference could change hands again tomorrow when Rushden & Diamonds entertain the current front-runners, Kingstonian, at Nene Park in non-League football's match of the day. The Northamptonshire outfit, who trail Kingstonian by two points, will become the fourth team to top the league in the last fortnight if they win tomorrow. Yeovil Town and Stevenage Borough have also been out in front in recent weeks.

Kingstonian warmed up for the trip to Rushden by lifting the JC Thompson Championship Shield, which is presented to the winners of an annual challenge match between the Conference champions and the FA Umbro Trophy holders, with a 1-0 win at Cheltenham Town on Tuesday. The former Plymouth and Luton striker Dwight Marshall scored the only goal of the game, taking the ball round the home goalkeeper just prior to half-time.

"We used the match as a yardstick to see how far we have come," Geoff Chapple, Kingstonian's manager, said after his team had beaten the Conference champions. "We were very good value for our win in what was a surprisingly competitive game. Now we need to play like that against Rushden." Chapple was pleased to see Marshall find his form after a spell out of the starting line-up, because the 34-year-old will have to deputise for David Leworthy, the Conference's joint top-scorer, who starts a three-game ban tomorrow.

Kingstonian will find out on Monday who they will face when they begin their efence of the Trophy, when the draw for the second round, due to be played on 27 November, takes place. One of the top ties in tomorrow's first round sees Tiverton, the FA Carlsberg Vase winners in 1998 and 1999, make their Trophy debut with a home tie against Dorchester.

Conker demonstration at Nene Park
The lucky 250 K's fans who travel to Rushden on Saturday will not only see the top two teams in the league, but also a "conker demonstration" at half-time. Hopefully, K's will perform a better conquering display...

Cheltenham 0-1 Kingstonian
Kingstonian lifted the JC Thompson Championship Shield tonight after beating newly promoted league team Cheltenham. A full strength (other than the injured Simon Stewart and the rested-cos-he's-suspended-soon David Leworthy) side, watched by a far from full strength number of supporters, celebrated winning the second Charity Shield this season as Dwight Marshall got the solitary goal. A report is available. Thankfully, the lack of exictement over this win meant that K's Web did not have to redesign its front page.

Simon Stewart in contention for Saturday?
Simon Stewart, may still make the starting line up on Saturday, the trip to which has over 130 supporters booked on Supporters' Club coaches.

Colin Lippiatt takes over as Assistant Manager
Although there was said to be "absolutely no truth to the rumour that Lippiatt will become assistant manager", it has since emerged that Clive Howse has left his coaching position (he had been wanting to since the FA Trophy Final, apparently), and that Colin Lippiatt will commence a role of assistant manager. Chapple and Lippiatt were said to "be delighted to be working together again".
