Kingstonian 0-3 Concord Rangers
Newly promoted Concord Rangers made the most of a lacklustre K's performance to win by three goals to nil at a freezing Kingsmeadow.

The visitors took an early lead when an unmarked Gary Ogilvie struck in the 6th minute. With little further action in the first half, it was five minutes after the break that Concord added a second, through Tony Stokes.

Rob Tolfrey kept the scores as they were when saving his second penalty of the week, though could do little when Tony Stokes tucked away a third in the 72nd minute. At the other end, K's only chance of note saw Sam Clayton denied a penalty when brought down by visiting goalkeeper Dale Brightly - making it three months without a penalty award.

Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game that it is now "time for action, not words".

Full details of the match are now available.

Kingstonian 0-1 Carshalton Athletic
A 72nd minute penalty by Gary Noel proved enough to separate the two sides at Kingsmeadow, though the former K's striker had to follow up to convert the rebound after his initial spot kick had been saved by Rob Tolfrey. A last minute Bobby Traynor strike was well saved by Craig Ross at the other end to secure the result.

Maidstone United 1-2 Kingstonian
A dramatic stoppage time goal from the returning Gary MacDonald secured all three points for Kingstonian at a sodden Homelands.

Sam Clayton finished off a slick move with his first goal for the club to give K's a 34th minute lead. Lively debutant Antonio Gonnella went close to adding to the lead but the hosts, having sent on experienced strikers Danny Hockton and Jimmy Dryden, clawed back the score with around ten minutes remaining. Both sides pushed for the winning goal, and ultimately it was MacDonald to the rescue with his second stoppage time winner of the season.

Full details of the match are now available.

Kingstonian 1-1 Bury Town
Ten-man Kingstonian drew one-all with Bury Town, and thus none of the top four sides registered a win over the weekend.

Bobby Traynor opened the scoring just before the half hour mark following some sharp play by Allan Tait. The lead came under pressure early in the second half following a hotly contested 'professional foul' decision against Dean Hamlin, and Lee Reed struck the equaliser just after the hour mark. Neither side was thereafter able to find the decisive breakthrough and the points were duly shared.

Full details of the match are now available.

Sandhurst Town 1-3 Kingstonian XI
Sandhurst and Kingstonian, celebrating their 100th and 125th birthdays respectively, played an entertaining match at an increasingly misty Crown Meadow last night which finished three-one to the K's.

Ell Dimitrov opened the scoring for Kingstonian in the 5th minute, before fellow trialist Kane Kayan added a second midway through the half. A thunderbolt from Lee Hall into the top corner made it three going in to half time. The hosts, having been superbly denied by Nic Taylor earlier, pulled a goal back in the 75th minute.

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "I'm very pleased with the game. They've got a nice setup at Sandhurst and I was impressed with their young manager Dean Thomas and the way he motivated his players.

"Young George Peterken took a hefty knock to his face right at the end of the game but fortunately he's ok. I've known the lad since he was a kid and if anything I'd say he was happy to go down because (in Jamie's absence) their physio was a fine-looking lass! They liked the look of him too so we'll send him there to get a few games."

Lineup:

1) Nic Taylor
2) Tom Duffy
3) A Trialist
4) Tobi Jinadu
5) Lee Hall
6) Jean-Sylvain Dossou
