Dorking and Colliers Wood Utd
This Saturday sees two Kingstonian sides in action with the pre-season programme in full swing. Stuart McIntyre will take charge at the main fixture at Dorking, whilst manager Ian McDonald will run the rule over a Kingstonian XI featuring players introduced by goalkeeper Chuck Martini at Colliers Wood United. Both games kick off at 3pm.

For those travelling to Dorking, for which match details can be found here, please take note of the following information from our hosts:

"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. The car park at the ground will be for officials and players only."

Meanwhile, for those going to Colliers Wood United, supporters are advised that this game will be at their ground just off the A3 (and NOT at Croydon), which is Wibbundune Sports Ground, Robin Hood Way, SW20 0AA.
