Banstead Athletic 0-4 Kingstonian
Kingstonian secured their biggest winning margin of the league season at Merland Rise tonight, making up ground in the table to move back into sixth position with a four-nil victory.

James Rose opened the scoring in the first half with a retaken penalty before Charley Side scored a neat goal to mark his first start for the club just before the break.

Banstead were reduced to nine men in the second half when Bobby George and later Alfie Bonso were both sent off for two bookable offences. K's furthered their winning margin in the closing stages with a powered header from Rose before substitute Mazin Ahmad scored from a corner with the final kick of the game.

Kingstonian 2-2 Cray Wanderers
The fifth and final meeting of the season between Kingstonian and Cray Wanderers ended all square this afternoon. The visitors twice took the lead, but were pegged back both times by a determined K's side.

Mazin Ahmad scored both goals - the first a superb strike from the edge of the box and the second from the penalty spot after a foul on Kenny Ojukwa. Cray's goals were similar - the first an even better strike than Ahmad's and the second a penalty after Alan Hughes had fouled. Martyn Lee was sent off for violent conduct with half an hour remaining.

Leatherhead 1-1 Kingstonian (AET, 3-4 on penalties)
K's prgressed to the semi-finals of this season's Surrey Senior Cup after another penalty shoot-out. The game was goalless after ninety minutes, but when Michael Brady was shown a red card not long after the start of extra-time things looked bleak.

Up popped Scott Corbett to give the visitors an unlikely lead, but the scores were levelled just a minute later. And so to penalties.

The hero ended up being Julian Sills, who converted his penalty - Kingstonian's sixth - after the third miss of the evening for Leatherhead. K's eventually won the tie 4-3 on penalties.

Full details of the match - including the penalty shoot-out - can be found here.

Tooting & Mitcham United 0-1 Kingstonian
A James Rose strike just after the quarter hour mark was enough to seal an important win at Tooting's modern Imperial Fields ground earlier today.

Despite the late sending off of former Terror Steve Symes in the final minutes for two cautions, K's held firm against a side who by some way are the division's top scorers.

Kingstonian U18 4-0 Godalming Town U18
The under 18's won four-nil against Godalming Town in the Southern Youth League last night, with all the goals, scored by Reece Jackson-Hughes (2), Ryan Jackson and Mark Jarman, coming in a storming second half performance.

Kingstonian 2-4 Ashford Town
Kingstonian's three-month unbeaten run in the Ryman League came to a shuddering halt with quick-fire Ashford hitting home four times at Kingsmeadow.

Joby Thorogood gave the visitors a two-goal lead before a goal-to-be-claimed by James Rose or Kenny Ojukwa pulled things back briefly. John Paul Collier took on all-comers to restore the two-goal margin just before half time.

Mazin Ahmad blasted home a fierce free kick in the final quarter before Collier again responded with devastating effect.

Kingstonian 2-2 Dover Athletic
Kingstonian maintained their fine run of games, both currently in the league and historically against former Conference rivals Dover Athletic, with a two-all draw at Kingsmeadow.

The visitors took the lead towards the end of the first half when Julian Sills, under pressure from Craig Wilkins, could only manage a glancing header that looped over Jonty Venter and into the back of his own net.

Substitutes Kenny Ojukwa and Mazin Ahmad had an almost immediate impact as Kingstonian turned the game around with a couple of quick goals in the second period. Ojukwa neatly lifted the ball past veteran goalkeeper Paul Hyde before Ahmad converted a penalty given for handball by Craig Cloke. Shane Hamshare ensured the points were shared, however, with a low drive with less than a quarter of an hour remaining.

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