Tooting & Mitcham 3-1 Kingstonian
Kingstonian's 100% start to the season came to an end at Imperial Fields today following a three-one defeat to Tooting & Mitcham.

K's troubles began just before half time when goalkeeper Luke Garrard picked up an injury, and were compounded when the Terrors' Matt York drilled a free kick into the bottom corner to open the scoring.

Further goals followed in the final quarter of an hour the game, first when Jamie Byatt rose to beat substitute 'keeper Luke Naughton, followed minutes later by a simple strike by Jon Henry-Hayden. Bobby Traynor bundled home a consolation goal in stoppage time.

Full details of the match are now available.

Kingstonian 2-0 Horsham YMCA
A quite stupendous goal from NJ Lampton sealed a deserved two-nil for K's over Horsham YMCA yesterday. Saheed Sankoh notched his fourth goal of the season just before half-time after a good run and shot from Lampton, but it was the second goal of the game that will undoubtedly win "goal of the season" this year - the winger beating five defenders before rounding the goalkeeper and slotting home into the empty net.

Full details of the match are now available. K's remain in second place in the table, with just three teams maintaining their 100% start to the season.

    K's took the lead in the ninth minute when Neil Lampton neatly slotted home after being played in by Saheed Sankoh.

    Witney Town 2-0 Kingstonian XI
    Witney Town beat a Kingstonian XI by two goals to nil last night. Lee Riddell, Danny Summers and Ross Chalke from the first team squad were joined by youth teamers and trialists.

    The K's struck the woodwork on a couple of occasions though the hosts opened the scoring from their second penalty of the game before doubling their advantage with a headed effort.

    Alan Dowson's thoughts on the game, "It was a good chance to see a number of players in action and give the likes of Lee a chance to get a whole game under their belt. We only had twelve players so Mark Hams came on as a sub in defence - in hindsight I wish I'd put him up front as he might have troubled their back line as much as he did ours!"
