Kingstonian FC AGM and EGM
There was a Shareholders AGM and EGM this evening and an anonymous source has told us the following:

No work will be undertaken on the ground until the close season.

The Rights Issue has been approved allowing those supporters who signed up to buy 50 worth of shares to do so in the near future.

Dwight Marshall has finally signed for Slough on a "free transfer". However, the move, while free for Slough, has allegedly cost K's 2,000, as they had to pay up the remainder of Marshall's contract.

Kingstonian 0-1 Kidderminster Harriers
The Conference leaders extended their recent good run of form with a hard-fought victory at Kingsmeadow today. Both David Leworthy and Matt Crossley were absent with 'flu, and their replacements were unable to break down the Kiddies' defence.

Kingstonian 2-0 Woking
K's finally got the better of Woking at the third attempt in a month. On a night when Geoff Pitcher made his 150th K's appearance, and Eddie Akuamoah his 300th, the goals came from Gary Patterson and David Leworthy - his first since October 30th. Mark Harris was sent off late on, apparently for trying to "nut" Darren Hay.

This result sees K's in the two-legged semi-final of the competition, which will be against the winner of the Hayes v Yeovil tie, postponed from last night. Hoagy informs us that these games are provisionally scheduled for February 14th and March 6th.

Doncaster Rovers 1-0 Kingstonian
Doncaster completed a double over K's at Belle Vue yesterday, as a poor first half performance from the travellers was punished with a 29th minute goal. The second half was much better, but K's couldn;t find an equaliser leaving them trailing Kidderminster (next Saturday's opponents) by nine points. The report is now ready.

Patterson under offer?

From today's Informer:


Kingstonian Football Club's ground improvement plans have been delayed by the Secretary of State asking for more time to consider the scheme. The minister is concerned because K's wants (sic) to build permanent structures on metropolitan open land.
