Cray Wanderers 1-3 Kingstonian
A second half flurry saw Kingstonian overcome in-form Cray Wanderers for the second time in three weeks.

A Jamie Kempster header gave the hosts the lead, somewhat against the run of play, in the 36th minute before Ks turned the game around midway through the second half. Captain Julian Sills headed in his fourth goal of the season, whilst fellow defender Richard Taylor calmly passed the ball into the back of the net for his first of the season.

James Rose made sure of the result in the final minute, wrapping his foot around a Tony Reid cross for his sixth goal in five matches.

Canvey Island 4-1 Kingstonian
All four remaining Ryman League sides exited the FA Trophy over the weekend, with Kingstonian succumbing to Nationwide Conference side Canvey Island in the battle of the former winners at Park Lane yesterday.

Despite a bright start, conceding to a Lee Boylan free kick in the 27th minute rocked the K's as Jason Hallett added a further two goals for the hosts in the following quarter of an hour. At the other end Mazin Ahmad's free kick on the stroke of time was deflected in to lift the K's, but a tighter second half produced just a single goal, scored in the final minute by Canvey's Dwain Clarke.

The line-up can be found here.

Moving to Whitstable some years ago, he continued to follow Kingstonian whenever possible and everyone's thoughts at the club are with his family and friends.
