Rod Wallace joins U18's
The club are delighted to welcome former Southampton, Leeds, Rangers, Bolton, Gillingham and England B striker Rod Wallace as U18's Assistant Manager. Rod takes over the role from Paul Murphy, who has left to focus on his roles at Surrey FA and Middlesex FA. Paul's efforts have been much appreciated and the club would like to wish him well for the future.

U18's manager Adrian Withers comments, "I am sad to see Paul leave as he has had a big influence not just on the U18's but across the whole youth section. We are fortunate that Rod has been helping out with some of the youngsters for his UEFA coaching badges, and that he's agreed to step into this position. Rod's played at the very top level and hopefully some of his influence will rub off on the players."

Kingstonian 2-2 Dover Athletic
A thrilling game between promotion hopefuls Kingstonian and league leaders Dover Athletic saw the points shared following a last ditch strike for the Kent side.

Not for the first time this season K's conceded an own goal, just after the quarter hour mark in this instance. However Simon Huckle's perfectly placed header levelled the scores in the 39th minute before Dean Lodge coolly put his side into the lead on the stroke of half time.

Both sides missed numerous chances in an exciting second half before Craig Cloke poked home the Dover equaliser in the final minute of the game. The sides are set to meet again later in the month at the Crabble.

Full details of the match are now available.
