The Gold Super Bond Draw
Club Secretary Graham Richards has confirmed that Blackpool F.C. Development Association have this past Monday received and approved the duly completed contract from Kingstonian F.C. and are now advancing this matter. The Royal Mail also confirmed yesterday that they have opened a FREEPOST account for the Ks in relation to The Gold Bond Super Draw. There will be a door to door mail card campaign in the Kingston area.

The standing order forms and other related forms and stationery are now being prepared and received and being proof read by Ks own Gold Manager Tom Dixon and Graham. Hopefully the actual forms that we will be using will be received in two weeks time, which will mean that we are on schedule to join the December draws.

Whilst Tom has already signed up some agents he is still looking for anybody else who is keen and interested. Anybody who is interested please have a word with Tom.

You will of course be advised of future progress as and when it happens.

Greg Ball - injury update
Manager Steve Sedgley has revealed that striker Greg Ball is likely to miss the majority of the season after hearing the results of a scan on his injured knee.

Sedgley said: "The scan showed that Greg has injured the cruciate ligaments and cartilage in his knee. It's a pretty bad injury and there is no way that he'll be able to play for a few months.

"It's a great shame because Greg has done fantastically for me this season. But there's no way that we'll be rushing him back because the main thing is to get his knee right so that he can continue his career."

The club have promised to do all that they can to help Greg while he is out injured and look forward to his return to the side some time next year.
