Kingstonian 2-3 Fulham XI
A Fulham XI bounced back from two goals down at half time to win an entertaining game and the Trevor Jones Memorial Trophy that was being marked, by three goals to two.

Adam Thompson opened the scoring for the K's from the penalty spot, before adding a second just before half time. Fulham substitute Corey Gameiro however struck a quick second half hat trick to turn the game around and secure the win, despite some late Kingstonian pressure.

Alan Dowson and Mark Hams
The club is delighted to announce that manager Alan Dowson and his assistant Mark Hams have agreed to sign two year contracts with the club. Alan and Mark joined the K's in January 2007 and have overseen an upturn in fortunes both on and off the pitch. There will be a brief presentation on the pitch before the Brighton game next Friday.

Joint-Chairman Mark Anderson comments, "We are both delighted that Alan Dowson and Mark Hams have put pen to paper and confirmed that their futures lies with us at Kingstonian. We are all trying to build this club up so that we have both a fantastic team and management on the pitch and a great committee behind the scenes. Securing Dowse and Hamsey is a vital ingredient in this as we want to play at the highest level of football possible which is sustainable financially so K's will carry on for another 125 years."

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "This is a great club and we are very happy here so these deals give us all a bit of security and allows us to kick things on from here and see how far we can go.

"Hamsey is a young coach and the best out there in this league. He's from the streets and this is his first contract so I'm sure it means a lot to him. I wouldn't have signed without him, and we're both grateful for the support from the rest of the coaching staff. Coach Martin Tyler, goalkeeping coach Adrian Blake and scout Adrian Withers will all be staying as part of the team."

Mark Hams add, "I am grateful that the board feels we deserve the contracts. I remember when I was a young player and K's were always the big team around. It makes me very proud that we are working on improving our fortunes and I look forward to continuing to work with the best committee, manager, players and supporters."

Response to the FA decision
The club is disappointed with the nature and outcome of the response from the Football Association following the appeal and complaint lodged on 3rd May regarding the assault by a spectator on a Kingstonian player during the playoff final at Boreham Wood on 1st May.

Joint-Chairman Mark Anderson comments, "After two and a half months we have now received a brief letter of half a dozen short paragraphs, telling us that the matter will not be dealt with by what is supposed to be the body in charge of our sport.

"The response we have had demonstrates that our concerns have not been taken seriously, and whilst I can accept us losing our appeal with regards to the match, there were other serious issues that should have been addressed for the greater good.

"It is widely known that Boreham Wood have suffered crowd trouble on a number of previous 'big match' occasions, and there is no doubt it will happen again. The unwillingness of the FA to take action will allow that to happen again there and elsewhere, until finally a knee jerk reaction kicks in following a high profile incident.

"Our supporters were threatened before, during and after the match. Our players were more concerned about their safety than they were the game, and my coach driver was subjected to abuse from the opponents' youth team. All we now receive is a response that treats us with what looks like contempt and disdain. It makes me wonder if it might be time to look at something else to do with my life!"

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "I can't believe the non-response we've had from the FA. It's been brushed right under the carpet and it's a shambles and just pathetic. That wasn't footballers affecting a football match and it could now set a very dangerous precedent, especially at this level of the game."

FA rule on Boreham Wood appeal
The club has just received the following letter, dated 19th July 2010, from the Football Association:

Boreham Wood v Kingstonian - 1st May 2010

Further to your letter dates 3rd May to Tarik Shamel, I write to advise you that the Football Association has conducted a full investigation into the incidents reported in your letter and the match referee's report.

The FA has taken into account Boreham Wood FC's preparations and planning for the above match, nothing that the club deployed 14 stewards and that police officers were also present in the ground.

We have noted that the offender who assaulted the Kingstonian player was arrested by police and has been banned by Boreham Wood FC for life. Further, that after the incident, police and stewards were sent to the area where the assault occurred to show a presence and no further incident occurred.

In the light of the experience at this match, The FA has given some operational advice for Boreham Wood FC to consider when stating a promotion play-off final or similar high-profile match.

As part of our investigation, The FA has also viewed the club's CCTV video footage of the alleged incident with the Kingstonian coach driver and does not see any case to answer on that incident.

After a full review of the facts in this case, The FA has decided not to take any further action in this matter. Boreham Wood FC have been advised that we may have to consider disciplinary action against the club if further reports of spectator misconduct should be received.

Yours sincerely,
Chris Whalley
Senior Manager, Stadia Safety and Security

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "We're cock-a-hoop about getting Bobby on to a new contract as he is the best goalscorer in the league, and he does that as part of our team. I've said before how he was my number one signing - as in my first signing, and also my best signing."

Rob Tolfrey
The club is delighted to announce that goalkeeper Rob Tolfrey has signed a two year contract with the club. Rob made 30 appearances for the K's since his debut in November, making an outstanding contribution to the form that led to an eventual playoff place.

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "Rob plays a vital role in the team, and has shown both quality and potential in everything he does - 22 is very young for a good goalkeeper. He's also a good club man and I think the world of the lad."

Update from Alan Dowson
Manager Alan Dowson comments, "I've been looking forward to getting some fixtures through for the new season and it's good to see they were only a few days late from the FA.

"Whilst the cups are always important to us, these are one-off games and we'll league matches to focus on first. With the draws, it's good to get a home game in the FA Cup against anyone, and with the FA Trophy it's either a trip to Walton who we know well or a new team to the Ryman League in Faversham.

"We've been working hard in pre-season training and our friendlies kick off on Sunday away to Winchester. With the away games we tend to stick to local venues to make it easier for players and fans alike, though we do like to go for one further afield each year.

"So, on Sunday it's down to Winchester, and where my old friend Glenn Cockerill is now manager. Glen has been to quite a few of our games in recent years and has helped us out too so it will be nice to take a few people down there. They've got a game against Southampton on Saturday if anyone wants to go and Glenn will be more than happy to chat with fans afterwards. For our game we've gone for an earlier 1pm kick off to give people a chance to get back for the World Cup final in the evening."

Party for Jamie Street
A party has been organised at The Butterchurn, Erskin Road, Sutton, Surrey, SM1 3AS, on Saturday 31st July from 7.30pm to celebrate physio Jamie Street's upcoming wedding. Tickets are available from Alan Dowson before and after upcoming friendly matches, costing 5. There will be some food and music, as well as a raffle. Proceeds from the night will be presented to Jamie as a present ahead of his big day.

Manager Alan comments, "Jamie does pretty much everything here. He's been here longer than all of us behind the scenes and is K's through and through. The venue might be right in the middle of Sutton and Carshalton but the landlord is from Jamie's old local (John Nelson from the Maverick). Hopefully we get a good turnout as he really deserves it."
