Kingstonian 2-2 Walton & Hersham
An action packed game saw local rivals Kingstonian and Walton & Hersham share the points in front of a seasons best crowd of 403 at Kingsmeadow.

Having seen a Bobby Traynor effort rebound back off the crossbar, K's soon found themselves behind following a good strike by Tom Carter on the quarter hour mark. The home side were shaken just minutes later when Aaron Nowacki pounced to double the defecit. Dean Lodge however pulled back a goal in the 37th minute with a fine curling strike into the top corner.

The second half produced fewer chances but finished in dramatic fashion as substitute Danny Summers found himself on the end of a Wayne Finnie throw to fire home a last minute equaliser.
