Christmas Hypnotic Party Night
The Kingstonian Christmas party takes on a whole new dimension this year on Friday 10th December, with hypnotist Kev Bee and comedian John Lory coming back to the Ethelred Suite at Kingsmeadow by popular demand.

Doors open at 7pm with some classic tunes, the K's showtime with Alan Dowson & Co is from 8pm, food buffet opens at 8.30pm, and then commencing at 9pm is comedy with John Lory followed by the Christmas Cash raffle draw and the main event, The Kev Bee Hypnotic Show.

A truly hilarious evening of entertainment with music, comedy and hypnosis of the funniest kind you have ever witnessed. No personal stuff, no clothes removal, just truly funny stuff for the whole family (note: there may be some bad language apparent during the stage shows).

With no game the following day now, there will be a special stage appearance from the Kingstonian players. Manager Alan Dowson said after the previous event, "I have never laughed so much in my life! Just the funniest thing I have ever seen!"

Tickets cost 15 for adults and 8 for under 18's (13 and 8 for Supporters Club members) and are available from John Fenwick, Vicky Jones, Pete Bowers or Alan Dowson. Tables of 10 are available for 130 (no further discounts).

Update from Alan Dowson
Manager Alan Dowson comments, "I'm still looking to add another one or two players and we need it. From here on, whoever gets the shirt is going to have to work real hard to keep it, as at the moment it's just been too easy for the players."

Mo Harkin
Midfielder Mo Harkin has joined Walton & Hersham on loan.

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "Mo had a big operation in the summer and has done well since he got back, but to be honest we did rush him in a bit and he could do with about half a dozen games to get fully match fit again.

Francis Quarm and Ola Sogbanmu
The club are pleased to announce the following loan signings from Woking:

Francis Quarm (27) is a central midfielder who played for Basingstoke Town and Sutton United last season. Before that he spent a few seasons with Hampton & Richmond Borough.

Ola Sogbanmu (18) is a striker who has progressed through the Cards' academy and been recently selected for the England Colleges National Team. He was as on the scoresheet as Woking drew with Brighton in the FA Cup recently.

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "Francis will add some presence to the midfield while Ola gives us an extra option up front. We need to freshen things up a bit and I'm hoping to get another player in too. Obviously that means we might have to move a few on to balance the numbers."

Ground regulations
The Directors and Management Committee have become concerned that a small group has developed the unpleasant habit of singing/chanting abusive/obscene songs. This is at both home and away matches.

Kingstonian FC has always been a family club and we are actively encouraging an increase in our regular base of supporters, not only adult but also parents with young children.

Following recent matches, including Sutton and Faversham, we have received quite a large number of letters condemning not only the action of this group, but also showing concern that the club is taking little or no action to extinguish this unpleasantness. Many of these letters come from neutral and possible new supporters.

This singing/chanting is directed towards individual(s), be they opposition player(s), management or supporters. Please refer to the issued ground regulations displayed by the entrance to the ground and also available to download via a PDF document. As stated there this behaviour is unacceptable.

Should anyone require clarity on the above or the issued ground regulations, they should discuss with Joint-Chairman Malcolm Winwright at a home match or approach Head Steward Denise Turner for guidance.

Walton & Hersham 0-3 Kingstonian
Kingstonian progressed through to the third round of the Championship Manager League Cup following a three-nil win away at Walton & Hersham.

Simon Huckle headed in the opening goal on the stroke of half time before Dean Lodge converted a penalty five minutes into the second period. Huckle broke clear to add another in the closing stages. Former K's man Liam Collins was shown a red card for two yellow cards in quick succession, whilst Sam Robinson suffered the same fate not long after.

Manager Alan Dowson reacts, "I'm pleased with both the performance and the results. Tom Bolarinwa did a good job up front and it's nice to see Hucks back and on the scoresheet. Sam Clayton got injured early in the game and whilst it's not as bad as it could have been, he's got some ligament damage that will keep him out for at least a month. It's a tough blow for the lad as he's been looking lively and I hope he recovers soon."

Full details of the match are now available.
