Clacton Town 2-3 Kingstonian
Kingstonian's visit to the Essex coast was aided when the hosts conceded an own goal in the opening minutes, though they did manage to pull things level midway through the half. Dave Clarke restored the lead for K's, extended in the second half by substitute Tim Sills. A late goal for the Seasiders proved to be little more than consolation as Steve Sedgley's side go into Monday's third qualifying round draw.

Comet: Sills looking for goal glut
From today's Surrey Comet:

Sills looking for goal glut by Mike Simmonds

Kingstonian's two-goal hero Tim Sills spoke of his delight after notching his first strikes of the season against Basingstoke and has given Ks fans notice that he has only just begun.

The brace of goals against his former club lifted Ks to 17th in the Premier Division.

His second strike was a carbon copy of Paul Gascoigne's famous Euro 96 effort against Scotland when he lobbed the ball over a defender before volleying it into the top corner for one of the best goals ever seen at Kingsmeadow.

"It was very special and I lost it a bit when I went running into the fans, which I don't normally do," said Sills, who joined Ks from Ernie Howe's side last season.

"I don't often score tap-ins and have scored plenty of good goals in my career, but that was definitely in the top five.

"It was quite bizarre because I have not experienced scoring against a former club before, but it was great to get off the mark and show Basingstoke what they are missing."

Sills feels the wonder strike will kickstart his season and that he will soon be topping the goalscoring league.

"I have set myself a target of 30 goals and think I am good enough to reach it," he said. "Hopefully I will have 15 by Christmas and can go on from there."

The 23-year-old graduate praised Ks fans for their support through a difficult time.

"You really notice the fans support and it helps to lift the players," said Sills after 400 attended the midweek match.

But he added he wasn't too keen on the nickname he has inherited from them.

"I'm not too fond of the nickname Windows I haven't heard that since I was in high school," he said.

Despite the pre-season turmoil Ks have experienced, the players have stuck together and Sills believes manager Steve Sedgley should take all the credit.

"Steve is fantastic and gives the team so much," he said. "His man management is superb and everybody at the club wants to play for him.

"If he had left I think a number of players might have followed, but he has shown his loyalty and we want to repay him."

Sills hopes his side can keep climbing the league and, not unnaturally, he wants to play at as high a level as possible and would love to do that with Ks.

"I would like to experience the professional game once and have always been told I have potential," he said "Now for the first time I have a manager who believes that too."

"I'm fully committed to Ks though and believe we have a squad that can do very well this season."

Fred Wye
The following letter has been received by the club from the Surrey County Football Association:

Dear Colleague,

It is with tremendous shock and sadness that I report that Fred Wye, Challenge Trophies Secretary and Vice-President, died whilst on holiday in Cyprus. It is believed that he suffered a heart attack. He was 62.

Whilst fulfilling his duties, Fred made lots of friends throughout football some of whom have moved away. I would therefore be grateful if you could advise other persons who you are aware of, who you feel would like to be informed.

Further details will be circulated when known.

Yours faithfully,
R T Ward
County Secretary.

Club Secretary Graham Richards will be attending Mr Wye's funeral on behalf of the club.

Simba looking forward to clash
From the NLP:

Jewson Eastern League club Clacton Town have drawn a mouth-watering home tie to Ryman League Premier Division side Kingstonian in the Second Qualifying round of the F.A. Cup on Saturday 28th September 2002.

With all other Jewson Premier teams drawing less flattering ties, the Seasiders are relishing what will no doubt be a huge day, and an extra-special one for the club's newest recruit - former French international striker Amara Simba (pictured), who is a an ex-K's favourite.

Says chairman Mick Broadbent: "We can't wait to see if we can pull it off.

"What is great is that we are under no pressure in a game as huge as this, and with Amara Simba playing against the club he helped win the FA Trophy, I would like to think we will have a big attendance.

"If this does not entice the imagination of the locals, then nothing will. I believe with some great local support, we might even cause an upset."

Ashby sacked by Bedford
From the NLP:

Roger Ashby has been sacked as manager of Ryman League Premier Division club Bedford Town.

The decision was made on Thursday night after a disappointing run of results including five consecutive defeats in the Premier Division.

Chairman David Howell gave the manager an ultimatum to win seven points from the next four games and the same again after that, but the discussion ended with Ashby (pictured no longer in post.

Ashby led the Eagles into the Ryman Premier two years ago but they have struggled to establish themselves at that level.

Seven straight defeats kicked off last year's campaign and, although relegation was comfortably avoided in the end, another poor run of results came at the end of the campaign.

Ashby, one of the nicest people in non-League football (and a former team-mate of this website's editor) did a superb job at Rushden & Diamonds when they were first formed but was replaced by Brian Talbot once Conference football was achieved.

In the meantime, Bedford's club aptain Gary Williams will take charge of team affairs for Saturday's match at Maidenhead United.

Grays manager and assistant depart
From the NLP:

Manager Craig Edwards and his assistant Lyndon Lynch have left Ryman League Premier Division club Grays Athletic by mutual consent following a poor star to the season.

The decision was made following a board meeting at the club on Monday night in which discussions over the club's present lowly position were discussed.

England semi-professional international midfielder Mark Stimson, who joined the club from Canvey Island in the summer, takes over for the present time until a new manager is found from an existing shortlist.

Changes to the site
Along with the new forum, several pages on the site have changed ever-so-slightly (although you may have to look close to see).

All of the new pages are produced by the same system as the forum, and they allow you to sort things the way you want and see attendances, league tables etc for other teams and leagues. Confused? Have a look at the bottom of some of these pages and you'll see what we mean:

The league table, the form guide, the average league attendances, the Kingsmeadow attendances, K's league progress and the results grid. More additions will follow over the next few days.

Tonight's result
Boreham Wood played out a two-two draw with Hitchin tonight, sending K's down to twentieth place in the league table.

Site almost back to normal
Apart from the forum - which will hopefully be up and running by tomorrow night - the site is now back to full fitness. This means that the man of the match votes for both the Grays and Hayes matches are available (although if you managed to vote in the Grays one before the problems you probably won't be allowed to again - sorry!).

The only other item of interest is that the list of people who receive an email when the latest news page is updated is that which existed on July 6th, so if you've signed up or removed yourself since then you'll need to do so again.

Isthmian League Cup to be sponsored by the Bryco Group
The Ryman League have sent the following press release:

Isthmian League Cup to be sponsored by the Bryco Group

The Isthmian Football League has concluded a three year agreement with double glazing firm The Bryco Group for the sponsorship of the League Cup competition.

The Bryco Cup will commence at the end of October and involve all 88 teams in the Ryman League. The agreement is worth in the region of 90,000 over three years and the distribution of prize money will be announced shortly.

The Bryco Group, Londons leading double glazing company, will have the option to extend the sponsorship when it expires at the end of the 2004/2005 Season.

The company already has links with the League, having been involved with Hornchurch Football Club for a number of years.

Peter Wilson, Brycos Sales & Marketing Director, speaking at the signing ceremony at Hornchurch said: "As a company we are delighted to be associated with a League of such standing and we look forward to a mutually beneficial involvement with the competition".

League Chairman & Managing Director Alan Turvey thanked the Bryco Group for their backing. "On behalf of the Management Committee I am delighted to welcome them to our family. With their high profile advertising campaign on radio and in print, they will bring added publicity to our League. Their involvement with our clubs is most welcome."

Access to K's Web over the past few days
Huge apologies for the lack of service over the past few days. This was caused by a hard-drive failure at the host of the site, which was then compounded by the fact that no recent backups were available...

The site is slowly being brought back to full working order, with all of the static pages (for example the league table, fixtures and reports etc etc), available as normal. However, certain sections of the site will not work. Please don't email us to tell us - we know!!

The forum is currently unavailable for the same reason, but with any luck a replacement will be in place by the end of the weekend. There will also be some gaps in the news archive - which ruins the run of almost four years of news :-( - but with some luck the gaps might be filled in over the next few days.

You might like to look further down the news page for some items that you will have missed - including the report of Tuesday night's win over Grays which is available here.
