Hastings 3-3 Kingstonian
A dramatic game at Pilot Field saw Hastings take a deserved share of the points, thus denying Kingstonian an end of season playoff spot.

Scott Corbett gave K's, starting the day in 6th place, the start they were looking for with ten minutes gone before some sloppy play at the back allowed the hosts to hit back with two goals in quick succession from Daniel Williams and Russell Eldridge.

Tony Reid poked home a Bashiru Alimi free kick just after the half hour mark, but the hosts restored their lead five minutes before the break following a fine strike by Duncan McArthur.

The second half yielded just a single goal - a twice converted penalty from James Rose - though this proved insufficient for Kingstonian's quest to remain in the top six come full time. K's captain Julian Sills and United's Tim Olorunda both saw red after two cautionable offences apiece.

A second successive big home win saw Kingstonian move back into the playoff zone with just a single league game remaining.

    The club will be will be presented with their award on Saturday 22nd April 2006 at Kingsmeadow Stadium, before Kingstonian FC kick off their final home game of the season at 3pm, by Surrey County FA Football Development Officer Steven Edwards in front of the 270 boys and girls who represent the famous club.

    Councillor Yogan Yoganathan, The Mayor of the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames, will be part of the ceremony which also marks the first Charter Standard award in the Royal Borough of Kingston upon Thames.

    Sir Trevor Brooking, The FA's Director of Football Development commented:
    "The FA Charter Standard award acknowledges the fantastic support that Kingstonian Youth is providing within the local community and its efforts to provide opportunities for players to develop their skills and play football in a safe and positive environment."

    "The FA is committed to raising the standards of football at grassroots level and the dedication and achievements of clubs like Kingstonian Youth make this possible".

    The FA Charter Standard programme, supported by FA partner McDonald's, was established five years ago and aims to improve standards of coaching, administration, player development and child protection.

    Saturday 1st April 2006
    Bashley 3-2 Kingstonian
    Kingstonian's five month unbeaten run away in the league came to a halt at Bashley in a game best described as scrappy.

    Kenny Ojukwa opened the scoring for K's from close range in the 8th minute after a James Rose header had bounced off the bar, before Danny Gibbons followed up a strike which had hit the post to level the scores. The hosts proceded to take charge of the game and took the lead on the stroke of half time through a Paul Gazzard header.

    Rose again caused the Bash rearguard problems, with Ojukwa taking advantage of a distracted goalkeeper to head home an equaliser. A hectic flurry in the K's goalkmouth on the hour mark, however, saw a couple of goal-line clearances before Gazzard fired home again for what proved to be the deciding goal.
