Horsham 2-3 Kingstonian
Kingstonian recovered from going behind before snatching a last minute winner for the second time over the Bank Holiday weekend. This time away to Horsham, the hosts took the lead through Jay Lovett in the 14th minute before Bobby Traynor equalised from the penalty spot ten minutes into the second half.

Ben Andrews restored the home side's advantage just after the hour mark, though again Traynor responded from the spot. Defender Gary MacDonald, having headed against his own post just minutes earlier, was on hand to capitalise on a mistake by Mark Zawadski - briefly a former K's goalkeeper - to knock in a winning ball with pretty much the last kick of the game.

Full details of the match are now available.

Kingstonian 2-1 AFC Hornchurch
A late Carl Wilson-Denis goal secured all three points for Kingstonian against AFC Hornchurch in a late-running match. Tommy Black had given the visitors the lead on the quarter hour mark, before Dean Lodge levelled the scores just six minutes later.

Kick off was delayed by 15 minutes, allowing for the late arrival of the visiting goalkeeper Ollie Morris-Sanders, whilst the first half finished a further 20 minutes late after lengthy treatment was required for Hornchurch's Jamie Richards and later Simon Huckle. Simon is currently in hospital being treated for a dislocated elbow which is likely to keep him out of action for some time. Best wishes for a speedy recovery to Simon, and also Hornchurch's Elliot Styles who was also taken to hospital at half time, with a suspected fractured ankle.

Full details of the match are now available.

Kingstonian 4-2 Billericay Town
An exciting opening home game of the season saw Kingstonian take all three points, following a four-two win against Billericay Town.

Bobby Traynor, returning to the starting lineup, opened the scoring with a deft lob in the 20th minute before Adam Thompson poked home from close range to double the advantage with 27 minutes played. Billericay pulled a goal back before half time with a fine strike by Dave Collis, and the visitors then levelled the scores straight after the break through Leon McKenzie.

K's were denied by the crossbar (Hustwick), post (Lodge), lineman's flag (Huckle), as well as former goalkeeper Ashlee Jones, but Dean Lodge proved too hot to handle as he was twice felled in the box in the final ten minutes. Bobby Traynor duly converted the penalty on both occasions. Billericay were meanwhile reduced to ten men with five minutes remaining when Cedric Ngakam was given his marching orders for a late foul on Max Hustwick.

Full details of the match are now available.

Update from Alan Dowson
Manager Alan Dowson comments, "We've been working hard as ever over the summer and can't wait to get going, especially as a lot of other leagues have already kicked off. Our first opponents Bury Town are new to the league but they're a good team and we'll expect a tough challenge.

"Mo Harkin and Bash Alimi are still out injured so won't be featuring, but the rest of the squad are all available for the opening games. We've played with some different formations over the summer, especially whilst Bobby Traynor was away, but he'll fit back in just like normal as he goes for a third league golden boot in a row."

Gary MacDonald
The club is delighted to announce the signing of defender Gary McDonald (30) from Havant & Waterlooville. Gary played in the Football League for Peterborough United before spending four years at Woking, during which time he made 124 appearances for the Cards before winning the FA Trophy with Ebbsfleet United. He has since played in the Conference South for Bognor Regis Town, Hayes & Yeading United, as well as Havant.

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "It was important to move quickly to replace Jon Boardman whilst we're still preparing for the season, and Jon himself mentioned that his former teammate might be available. Gary has lots of experience and reads the game well so will be an important part of our defence."

Jon Boardman
Defender Jon Boardman has been released by mutual consent. Jon joined the club just a couple of months ago but has recently relocated to the Reading area and will therefore be joining Hungerford Town.

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "It's a disappointment to lose Jon as he's a good experienced player, but he's had a change in circumstances which meant he could no longer fully commit to our schedules. He enjoyed his time with us and we were pleased to have him but it wouldn't have been in our interests to keep a player in those circumstances. Good look to him for the future."

Pictured above with course tutor and ex West Ham player Geoff Pike are Jacob Bliss, Tom Drinkwater, Steff Martin, Josh Johnson, Benji Alvares, Charlie Dunn, Alex Mcmillan and Ben Ewing.

Mark Hams comments, "The boys have been an absolute credit to the club with the way they conducted themselves in very hot conditions. They displayed admirable punctuality, manners and courtesy with no fuss at all which make the life of the candidate a whole lot easier. The positive feedback and comments from the candidates go a long way to putting our club back on the map which is what we are always striving to do. The English FA tutors were also very complimentary regarding the lads' attendance.

"Very special thanks go to Mark Dunne from the Under 18's for his huge efforts in arranging the players' availability and to Keith Lyons at Hinchley Wood School for arranging a minibus at short notice. Thanks also go to Tony Procter at AFC Westend for his efforts in trying to arrange more players at late notice."
