Corinthian-Casuals 2-1 Kingstonian
Holders Kingstonian crashed out of the Surrey Senior Cup in the first round before the scheduled start in the competition for most other clubs.

Danny Morris struck a fine goal midway through what would have been a comfortable first half, bar a late close range equaliser from the hosts.

The woodwork three times denied Kingstonian a second goal, and midway through the second half the game turned when Steve Symes was sent off for tangling with an opponent bearing down on goal. The resulting free quick squirmed through the wall and turned out to be the game's decisive goal.

Tooting finished the game with just nine men following the dismissals of Jamie Findlay midway through the second half and Vernon Francis on the stroke of full time.

Kingstonian 2-3 AFC Sudbury
A thrilling FA Trophy replay saw the pendulum swing from one way to another before Sudbury grasped an injury time winner to set up a tie with Ramsgate in the next round.

The visitors took a first minute lead through a Neil Calver header before a stirring Kingstonian comeback at the start of the second half. Dean Lodge headed home Mazin Ahmad's cross in the 49th minute before Daniel Morris got the final touch onto a tantilising looping effort from Martyn Lee a minute later.

Sudbury's Calver was sent off following a second reckless challenge, though this only spurred on the visitors. Darren Bethell's deflected effort levelled the scores with just over ten minutes remaining before further drama in the final minute. Richard Taylor was sent off for a professional foul before a stoppage time winner from Donald George to finally decide the tie.

AFC Sudbury 2-2 Kingstonian
Danny Morris got K's off to a flying start in their opening FA Trophy game, blasting home in the second minute before doubling his tally on the half hour mark when neatly converting a Mazin Ahmad cross.

The hosts hit back in the second half and found a breakthrough in the 63rd minute when David Head's effort was blocked by the arm of Tommy Moorhouse.

Manager reflects on game
Following last night's defeat at Met Police, Stuart McIntyre has expressed his disappointment for the fans who turned up and thanks them for their support in what was a good league cup turnout.

With important league fixtures approaching, Stuart used the game as an opportunity to give players who have yet to feature prominently this season an outing. As touched upon in last night's K's Web audio interview, he thought that whilst the side played some good football at times, ultimately goals change games. He takes responsibility for the defeat but believes that it was the right game to try a few different things in order to learn more about the squad.

Metropolitan Police 4-1 Kingstonian
A Kingstonian side featuring nine changes from the weekend's league game made a bright start to their Westview Cup third round game at Met Police, with Wes Harrison converting a Glenn Boosey corner in the 9th minute.

The hosts, however, turned the game around towards the end of the first half, first when Kevin Cooper poked home a deep ball and then when Ben Abbey converted a penalty on the stroke of half time after Craig Brown had been felled.

The second half saw a Dean Lodge cross-shot clip the top of the crossbar and Glenn Boosey strike the post from close range, before Tony Finn fired in the goal of the game in the 69th minute to effectively seal the result. The Blues struck a final goal in the 77th when Steve Potterill inadvertently converted a cross into the back of his own net.

Club reaction to 'neutral venue' Fleet Town fixture
The Directors of Kingstonian Football Club are disappointed with the situation which finds them having to play their next Ryman League home match at Hampton & Richmond Borough FC on Saturday 14th October (kick off 3pm). This follows Fleet Town's confirmation that they were unwilling to play either on the evening of Friday 13th October or on Sunday 15th October. The original need to move the game was to avoid a fixture clash with AFC Wimbledon's upcoming FA Cup game at Kingsmeadow Stadium. Whilst of course respecting the views of the Fleet Board, it is now unusual to find clubs unwilling to be flexible when circumstances such as these present themselves.

The result is that Kingstonian and their fans will have to pay more money to stage/attend this match and at considerable inconvenience to all involved. This cannot be in the best spirit of non-league football, where the fans should always come first. Naturally all at Kingstonian are extremely grateful to our friends at Hampton & Richmond Borough for allowing the game to take place at their Beveree ground.

Dover Athletic 2-2 Kingstonian
An extraordinary game at Crabble today saw nine man Dover and ten man Kingstonian share the points in front the largest Division One crowd of the season, 855.

A relatively quiet first half saw Tony Reid come closest for the K's with a close range header just wide of the post, before Jimmy Dryden put the hosts in front on the stroke of half time with a curling free kick.

Scott Corbett converted a Mazin Ahmad cross eight minutes after the break to level the scores before an already brewing match spilled over. A brawl followed an unsavoury challenge by Craig Cloke on Steve Symes, in which a number of players were booked. Soon after Cloke was shown a second yellow following a lunging tackle, though Dover retook the lead when Dryden was on hand to convert a swift break down the left.

The closing stages saw Tony Browne sent off for handball on his goal-line, with Mazin Ahmad confidently converting the resulting spot kick to level the scores again. K's full back Steve Symes became the third player to see red when shown a second yellow in the final minute.

Two former Kingstonian defenders have returned to the club over the past week:

Stephen made 42 appearances for the club that season before abroad to coach in America. He has made the odd appearance for Corinthian Casuals and Sutton United this season.
