Three depart from the squad
The following players have been released this week:

  • Defender Scott Smith (31) made 64 appearances for the club, mostly in his first spell at the club, where he became the first Kingstonian player in modern times to be capped at full international level (against Scotland and France for New Zealand in 2003). Stuart McIntyre commented, "Scott has been a very good player for the club but no longer provides the pace and mobility that we are looking for."

  • Midfielder Paul Wetherall (25) made 42 appearances for the club in a number of positions since joining a year ago, including a goal at the start of last season's Surrey Cup run. Stuart McIntyre said of Wetherall's departure, "I could not guarantee Paul first team football and felt it appropriate to make the decision rather than disappoint him week in week out."

  • Striker Damian Panter (26) made 9 appearances for the club at the start of the previous and current campaigns, netting once against Ringmer in the FA Cup. Damian asked to be released in order to pursue opportunities at another club.

    The club would like to thank the players for their efforts and wishes them well for the future.

    Kingstonian 1-0 Chatham Town
    A deflected Dean Lodge cross in the 21st minute was enough to secure a win today against Chatham Town at a sun-drenched Kingsmeadow.

    Substitute Tony Reid struck the crossbar in the second half whilst goalkeeper Luke Garrard was called upon to make two outstanding saves to keep the scoreline intact.

    Three added to the squad
    The following players have signed for the club this week:

  • Stuart Booth (22) makes a formal return to the club, having taken some time away following the end of last season to try out for a number of clubs at a higher level. Stuart has made 29 appearances for the K's and the popular right sided midfielder has previously played for Millwall, Leyton Orient, Sutton United and Carshalton Athletic.

  • Glenn Boosey (22) joins the club from Sutton United. Recognised as a talented player who likes to run at opponents with the ball, Glenn progressed through the ranks to make his name at the U's before spells at Metropolitan Police, Carshalton Athletic and Hampton before rejoining Sutton in January.

  • Yinka Salaam (19) is a young full back joining from Thurrock who came through the ranks at Gravesend & Northfleet before appearing at the Champion Hill ground for both Fisher Athletic and Dulwich Hamlet last season.

    Manager Stuart McIntyre commented that the signings will increase competition, whilst adding youth and quality to the squad.

    Kingstonian U18 1-1 Ashford Town U18
    The under 18's drew their opening game of the season one-all with Ashford Town (Middx) at Colliers Wood last night. Ross Chalke opened the scoring with a low drive in the 20th minute before the visitors struck an equaliser in the 33rd minute.

    The young K's were denied five times in total by the woodwork and despite a late flurry were unable to snatch a winner in a competitive encounter.

    The team will now not be in action this coming Sunday in the Surrey Cup first round as opponents Badshot Lea Colts have withdrawn. K's thus receive a bye into the next round.

    Kingstonian 1-2 Ramsgate
    Two goals from Mo Takalobighashi ended K's FA cup run at the first qualifying round as Ryman Premier Ramsgate secured a two-one win. A penalty in the last minute from James Rose was too little, too late - although it gave the score-line some deserved respectability.

    Kingstonian 3-2 Hampton & Richmond Borough
    K's just about held on for victory in the League Cup as a three-goal lead was cut down to one as Ryman Premier Hampton came back strongly.

    Two goals from Danny Morris and a first of the season for James Rose put Kingstonian into a seemingly unassailable lead with less than half an hour to play. But a couple of changes for the visitors and some tiring K's legs saw the 221 in attendance biting their nails while waiting for the final whistle.

    Full details of this evening's match are now available.

    Godalming Town 0-1 Kingstonian
    Scott Corbett scored the only goal of the afternoon at Godalming as K's ran out one-nil winners. Martyn Lee saw his penalty saved and Tony Reid struck the bar either side of the goal, but in truth it was an uninspiring match between two poor sides.

    Full details are available here.

    Kingstonian FC Ltd
    Kingstonian Football Club have confirmed the successful transfer of ownership of Kingstonian FC Ltd (company number 4480694) on Friday 11th August 2006 from James Cochrane to Mark Anderson and Malcolm Winwright, for a nominal fee plus the undertaking of debts.

    Mark Anderson and Malcolm Winwright therefore assume joint ownership of the club with a 50% holding each in the share capital of Kingstonian FC Ltd. They will act as joint Managing Directors, whilst John Lloyd remains as Financial Director and Company Secretary. The directors are actively seeking another one or two investors and enquiries are welcome to discuss opportunities.

    Joining as part of the new board are Committee Members Ian Brady, representing the highly successful Kingstonian Youth FC, and Vicky Jones, who has been elected by the long-established Kingstonian Supporters Club committee to represent them.

    The directors are delighted to report a stable situation at the club with a strong committed board at the helm, and are keen to push forward for progress primarily by securing year-round training facilities and pushing for promotion. Meanwhile, they are keen to reiterate their desire for openness at the club and are always willing to be approached for discussion.

    Finally, they would like to place on record their gratitude to all those who keep the club going; former Chairman and now Life Member Jimmy Cochrane for securing it's survival in tough times, the ranks of dedicated volunteers who through their numerous tasks allow the club to operate, and not forgetting the loyal supporters of this fine football club who had been with the K's through the highs and the lows.

    Background

    Mark Anderson has been an active and prominent figure at Kingstonian since joining as main club sponsor in August 2005. His background in football dates back to being youth team goalkeeper for Tranmere Rovers before moving south to establish the Anderson Travel Group, where he is Managing Director.

    Malcolm Winwright is familiar to many K's fans, having been a supporter of the club since 1962. He has attended most matches each season throughout that time, other than under the reign of Rajesh Khosla a regime he had previously attempted to prevent from taking charge of the club. His business background is as a senior shareholder in a large corporate company, Futurama, who have over the years been a sponsor of the club.

    Kingstonian progressed to a meeting with Ramsgate in the FA Cup following a three-one win over Sussex County League side Pagham.

Scott Corbett made sure of the result when bundling in a James Rose effort with a quarter of an hour remaining.

    Return of fans favourite Ahmad
    The club are delighted to announce the return of popular attacking midfielder Mazin Ahmad.

    Ahmad, 21, made his K's debut two years ago and made a big impression in his 71 appearances with his surging runs, whilst netting a number of spectacular goals in a haul of 14 last season before moving on to Aldershot Town in March.

    Head Coach Stuart McIntyre says of the signing, "Maz gives us that added threat in the final third which we have been missing. He's tried his luck at a higher level and is back with a renewed commitment to a club he loves."
