Westfield 1-1 Kingstonian (AET, 2-4 on penalties)
Kingstonian won through to the last eight of the Surrey Senior Cup after a lethargic display against Combined Counties side Westfield saw the tie end scoreless after ninety minutes.

Goals from either side in the second period of extra-time - the K's goal coming via a superb strike from Tony Reid - meant a penalty shoot-out which the visitors won four-two, thanks to two fine saves from Richard Martin.

K's will face Leatherhead away in the quarter-finals at a date to be confirmed.

Tonight's line-up can be found here. For info the scorers in the shoot-out were Scott Corbett, Stuart Booth, Tony Reid and Steve Symes.

Molesey 2-3 Kingstonian
Kingstonian won an amazing game by three goals to two at Molesey yesterday. Deep into injury time the home side got the ball into the net, the referee blew his whistle and pointed to the centre circle sending K's heads into hands.

It took some time for everybody to realise that he had in fact given a free-kick to the visitors and ended the game at exactly the same time - giving K's a well-earned three points.

An own-goal put K's ahead, with a deflected shot from Mazin Ahmad pulling the score back to two-all after a brace from ex-K Phill Ruggles, and it was a scrambled header from Scott Corbett that finally gave K's the win.

Kingstonian 3-2 Burgess Hill
K's moved up to seventh place in the league table after a three-two home win over Burgess Hill this afternoon.

The visitors twice took the lead in the first half, but two instant replies - from Tommy Moorehouse and James Rose - saw the teams go in level at the break. It took some time for K's second-half pressure to tell, but Rose's second of the game eight minutes from time ensured that the recent fine run continued.

The line-up from today's match is now available.

Newport (IoW) 1-3 Kingstonian
The long trip over the water to the Isle of Wight was well worth it in the end, as K's ran out three-one winners against the league's bottom side. Two first-half goals from Tommy Moorehouse (his first for the club) and James Rose deservedly saw K's in the lead, but Newport pulled one back before half-time.

The win was silled (ha ha) by Julian Sills' second goal in as many games with just over ten minutes remaining. The three points saw K's move up into ninth place in the league table.

K's FA Cup heroes
Kingstonian are amongst an elite 33 non-league teams who have, according to the FA, the highest rankings in the history of the FA Cup. This elite band on this, the 125th season of the FA Cup, have been invited to participate in the selection of an "All Time FA Cup Heroes" team, along with the 92 Premier and Football League clubs.

With 625 names from a total of 125 clubs, a panel of FA Cup experts, chaired by Sir Trevor Brooking - who famously scored the winning goal for West Ham in the 1980 Final - will whittle this down to a shortlist of 125; 25 players from each position and 25 managers. TheFA.com will then begin a month-long search for the final all-time team by asking visitors to their website to select their own FA Cup Legends team and manager. The final team will be announced, by position, throughout the build up to Mays Cup Final.

The full list of non-league teams is: Altrincham, Barrow, Bath City, Blyth Spartans, Bromley, Bishop Auckland, Chesham United, Chorley, Dartford, Darwen, Enfield, Gainsborough Trinity, Grantham, Hereford United, Hitchin Town, Kettering Town, Kings Lynn, KINGSTONIAN, Lowestoft Town, Merthyr Tydfil, Northwich Victoria, Nuneaton Borough, Runcorn, Scarborough, Shildon, St Albans City, Sutton United, Tooting & Mitcham, Wealdstone, Weymouth, Woking, Worcester City and Worksop Town.

Kingstonian's record in the FA Cup can be examined by searching for K's in the FA Cup in our database.

Meanwhile, to make nominations and add to the debate please visit the FA Cup heroes threads on the Ks In Point forum over the next week or two.

Back at work? Looking for something to do?
Now that most people have returned to work after their Christmas break it seems like the perfect opportunity to mention that a section of the site which proved very popular in the past has made a welcome, if long overdue, return.

By going to the search the site page you can search every Kingstonian result ever! We've got every match from September 1919 onwards and you can search all 4437 of them.

So if you're back at work and looking for something to fill that time (in your lunch break, of course) head over to the search page - it's almost certainly the only service like it in non-league football!

Meanwhile, the 'next match - past meetings' link on the top right corner of every page will now return results of all fixtures between K's and their upcoming opponents.

Kingstonian 3-1 Whyteleafe
Kingstonian notched up their first league 'double' of the season - at the first time of trying - at the expense of Whyteleafe following their latest second half goalscoring spree.

Mazin Ahmad converted from the penalty spot in the 64th minute after substitute Kenny Ojukwa had been felled, before Ojukwa neatly tucked away a second and Tony Reid made it three goals in quarter of an hour with a close range header.

The first half had seen Whyteleafe goalkeeper James Wastell save a Martyn Lee penalty before the visitors took the lead just after the half hour mark when Kevin George rose unmarked to head home a free kick.

The line-up can be found here.
