Deadline day signings
The club are pleased to announce two new signings on Ryman League transfer deadline day.

Young centre forward Gary Noel joins from Millwall, and recently scored a hat-trick in a 6-0 academy win over Charlton Athletic. He has also recently been training with Grays Athletic.

Winger winger Phil Williams joins from Dartford, where he joined early in the season after making over a hundred appearances for Dulwich Hamlet over two years.

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "I'm pleased to have brought both these bright players in just before the deadline. The coaching staff at the Millwall Academy brought my attention to Gary and Phil is a player who I have had an eye on for a while.

Kingstonian 1-0 Leatherhead
Kingstonian recorded their fifth consecutive victory after defeating local rivals Leatherhead by a single goal to nil.

Tommy Williams' 12th minute free kick proved enough to beat The Tanners in a tight encounter. Danny Summers came closest to scoring again for K's when he headed over from close range, while Luke Garrard did well to tip a Glenn Boosey chip over the bar.

Leatherhead's Steve McNamara was sent off in the closing minutes for a second bookable offence, while the visitors might have been aggrieved that Jon Coke only saw yellow after bringing Dave Stevens down when through on goal.

With Worthing only drawing this morning, the victory moves K's back into the top five of the league.

Full details of the match are now available.
