Robert Wooldridge
On Tuesday night Robert Wooldridge confirmed that he is to stand down as both Programme Editor and Matchday Announcer. Robert joined the club in May 2001 and was also the Assistant Club Secretary, as well as Secretary to the Reserve and Youth teams in seasons past.

In his three years at the club Robert saw many changes but managed to keep his good humour throughout. The programme has undergone a revolution thanks to him, and whoever attempts to fill his shoes will face a very difficult challenge.

Everybody at the club would like to extend their thanks to Robert for all of his work over the past three seasons and wish him all the very best for the future. His is certainly a face that will be missed at Kingsmeadow and we hope to see him back as our guest soon.

Kingstonian 0-1 Hornchurch
With the game kicking off at 8.30pm due to heavy evening downpours, the feature of the first half was the efforts of both sides in dealing with the sodden pitch.

Despite a number of half-chances, the first - and only - goal of the game came just after the hour mark from a low Andy Douglas strike. Dave Timothy went closest for the K's just minutes later with a long-range effort that struck the crossbar.

Full details of the match are available here.

Kingstonian 0-1 Northwood
A last-ditch strike by Danny Yeoman saw Northwood take the points in a nervy match at Kingsmeadow today. K's had the majority of the play in the first half, whilst both sides struck the woodwork in the second period. The win sees K's overtaken in the league table by their visitors, whilst wins for other clubs at the bottom further tightens affairs as the season draws to an end.
