    Ian McDonald
    From Kingstonian FC Ltd company secretary John Lloyd:

    The management of Kingstonian FC have announced that first team manager Ian McDonald has left the club. Ian was appointed just over a year ago with the prime task of turning the team around from the depths of despair to a well performing Ryman 1st Division team. We are very proud that he achieved this along with winning the SSC Cup at Woking last week. We consider his skills to be of Conference level and wish him all the best in his next appointment.
