Metropolitan Police 1-1 Kingstonian
K's recorded their third consecutive one-all draw in the league with a frustrating night at Imber Court. Met Police were reduced to ten men in the early stages when Carl Hutchings was sent off for bringing down Tony Reid inside the box. Dean Lodge's spot kick was however comfortably saved by Will Packham.

The breakthrough came in the 31st minute when Adolph Amoako pounced to score against his former club. Substitute Scott Corbett saw a header saved onto the post by Packham in the second half, but the hosts increased their influence in the game and struck a deflected equaliser on the hour mark.

Full details are available here.

Jarvis in, Lavender out
The club have signed defender Jamie Jarvis (35) from Ryman Premier side Slough Town. His previous clubs include Maidenhead United, Hayes, Grays Athletic and Hampton & Richmond, before moving to the Stage Meadow ground, first as captain at Windsor & Eton before joining Slough in the summer.

Head Coach Stuart McIntyre commented on the signing, "Jamie is a dominating centre half who is exceptionally strong in the air. He is the just the kind of player the side needs at the moment."

"Following his arrival, Danny Lavender has considered his options and decided to return to help out his former club Leatherhead, where they are missing a number of players through injury. It's an amicable move and will hopefully work out best for all parties concerned."

    The under 18's secured a thrilling win in tonight's Southern Youth League fixture, coming back with three fine goals in six minutes, from Decent Edaeyi, Peter Philpott and Mark Watkins in response to a 2nd minute goal from the visitors going in to half time.

    Colliers Wood again struck early after kick off, this time a solo goal in the 48th minute to tighten things up. Midway through the second half each side was awarded a penalty in quick succession - the first for K's following a foul on Edaeyi which was calmly converted by Ross Chalke, before the opponents again pulled back a goal again through a retaken spot kick. The young K's however held out for a deserved win and now go into two more home games in the coming week; Sunday and next Wednesday.

    'Prolific' Amoako added to strikforce
    The club have signed Adolph Amoako (23) from Croydon Athletic. Adolph came through the Crystal Palace academy before establishing himself as a prolific marksman at Bromley, scoring 62 goals in 163 appearances. Snapped up by Margate at the start of last season, where he struck 6 goals in 17 outings, he also appeared for Met Police last year.

    Head Coach Stuart McIntyre commented on the signing, "I know Adolph well from Bromley, where he was my top scorer. What he brings with him is plenty of pace and a predatory instinct in front of goal."

    'Legend' Leworthy returns to the K's
    Kingstonian are delighted to welcome back David Leworthy (43) to the club in the role of Player/Coach, following his return to the area after a spell coaching in Spain.

    Dave played league football for Portsmouth, Tottenham Hotspur, Oxford United - with whom he gained a Football League Cup winners medal - and Reading, before being the subject of a record non-league transfer fee when moving to Dover Athletic from Farnborough Town. He remains Kingstonian's record signing, joining for 18,000 from Rushden & Diamonds at the start of the 1997/98 Ryman League winning campaign, going on to score 66 goals in 146 appearances for the K's. Dave joined Havant & Waterlooville in 2001/02 and was Player/Manager there until departing three seasons later.

    Stuart McIntyre on the return of one of Kingstonian's most famous players, "Dave brings an unparalleled wealth of experience to the club whom he has served so well in the past. Top players like Clive Walker and Gary Abbott have shown that it can be possible to extend playing careers into their forties, and whilst Dave is fit I am not looking for him to do all the running. He is all about know-how and putting chances away, which I hope can rub off on some of the other players."
