Success For U16's
Kingstonian Youth secured their first trophy of the season when the U16 team won the Brook House 6-a-side tournament on 17 July. Two teams were entered, one team missing out on a quarter final position by a single goal whilst the other team conceded only 3 goals and won every game.The triumphant K's overcame North Greenford in the semi finals 1-0, before beating holders and hosts Brook House by the same scoreline with arguably one of the goals of the tournament. We would also like to say a big "Thank You" to Ross at Adipost DIY in Whitton for his sponsorship of the U16's tournament fixtures this summer. The squad are looking forward to defending their title next season.

Parking at Dorking
We have been forwarded the following information regarding car parking from Dorking Football Club:

"Unfortunately parking is very limited at Meadowbank. When supporters approach the ground along Mill Lane they should fork left and park in the multi storey car park. The ground is then a very short walk away. Supporters will not be allowed to park at the ground."

The usual upcoming match details can be found here.

Proposed club takeover
From the Kingston Guardian, by Mike Simmonds:

Kingstonian manager Kim Harris has thrown his support behind Jimmy Cochrane after the local florist announced he intends to buy the troubled club.

Cochrane has, in principal, agreed a take-over deal with chairman Rajesh Khosla, with whom Harris has had an uneasy relationship since becoming first-team boss in December 2003.

"Things could be looking up," said Harris. "I don't know Jimmy that well, but he's a Kingston man and a good man.

"I have always said the club needs someone like him in charge and it seems like it will finally happen.

"I am happy to stay on and we have had a brief chat about the budget already.

"Hopefully a decent one can be agreed because if it is slashed by a lot it will be quite difficult to compete this year."

Cochrane is happy for Harris to stay and believes the club needs players who are willing to fight for the cause.

"I am happy for Kim to be in charge, but like everything else it will be assessed as we go on," he said.

"Some of the big players have gone, but I want people whose desire is to play for the club.

"I have prepared a budget which is not the best in the league, but which is certainly competitive.

"Hopefully we can have a side equal to the rest of the division and a little bit higher. Success breeds more success."

Cochran revealed his other plans to help bring the good times back to Kingsmeadow.

"Cutting admission prices is my first aim because it should be around ?5 for adults and a few quid for kids," he said.

"I want to get everyone, young and old, back to the club. I remember great times at Richmond Road when we got thousands of fans in.

"The base support is still there and if we can get the crowds up to about 600 I will be over the moon."

Meanwhile, Ks began their pre-season training last week ahead of the first friendly with Farnham Town on July 20.

Lance Key, Stuart Booth, Bash Alimi, Liam Collins, Martyn Williams, Anthony Savage, Jermain Hinds and Greg Ball all reported for duty, but defender Max Hustwick is on a two-week trial with Aldershot Town.

"I really hope the trial comes off for Max because I am very close to the lad and he deserves the chance to play at a higher level," said Harris.

"Training went well and I have spoken to a number of players, including some who were in Brentford reserves."
