Worthing 4-1 Kingstonian
Kingstonian's unbeaten away record in the league came to an end following a four-one defeat at Worthing.

The hosts missed a penalty in the opening minutes before taking an 8th minute league. Phil Williams equalised minutes later but the parity was to be short-lived as Worthing struck again in the 14th and 28th minutes.

A tighter second half saw just a single further goal, in the 80th minute for Worthing.

Full details of the match are now available.

Alan Dowson on Ashford
Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game, "I'm very pleased with the work put in by the whole team over 120 minutes, and there wasn't a bad performance out there. Tom and Craig again did very well, whilst the more experienced players like Max, Jason and NJ worked their socks off.

We were expecting young Dumer to be on the bench as he wasn't far off when we put the team sheet in but he got stuck in a traffic jam after an accident on the M25. That meant Blakey had to swap his goalkeeping gear to go on outfield when Anthony picked up a knock. It would have worked if we'd gone to penalties as he strikes the ball like a rocket!"

Kingstonian 2-1 Wingate & Finchley
Kingstonian moved into the quarter finals of the London Senior Cup, where they will travel to Welling United or Croydon Athletic, following a two-one win against Wingate & Finchley.

Liam Collins opened the scoring on the half hour mark with a 30 yard lob before Phil Williams rounded the visiting goalkeeper to add a second minutes later. The leaders pulled a goal back through Chris Chase just before half time though it proved to be little more than consolation for the north London side.
