Kingstonian 0-2 Woking
Woking won the Trevor Jones Memorial Trophy following a two goal win, courtesy of goals from Moses Ademola in the 21st and 30th minutes. Substitute Paul Olima struck the woodwork for the K's as both sides went close to adding further goals.

Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game, "We've played two of the better teams in the Conference South now and Woking will certainly be right up there. With three weeks until the start of the season we have to challenge ourselves and we're getting a lot of good work under our belts."

Trevor Jones Memorial Trophy
This Saturday sees Kingstonian host Woking for the Trevor Jones Memorial Trophy.

Each summer a match is played for a trophy bearing the name of former K's goalkeeper and reserve team manager Trevor, who tragically passed away in 2003. AFC Wimbledon and Fulham have also previously provided the opposition, though it is somewhat fitting that the game is for the second time against Woking, where he spent some time during his career.

Prices for this match will be Adults 7, Concessions 4, Students 2 and Juniors free.

Kingstonian 1-1 Glenn Hoddle Academy
Kingstonian and the Glenn Hoddle Academy shared a one-all at Kingsmeadow last night. Alex Fisher neatly slotted in the opening goal for the visitors in the 17th minute night before a late Jordan Cheadle penalty levelled the scores.

Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game, "I thought it was a good game and they seemed to enjoy themselves. It was good to have Glenn there his talented players and I'll be chatting to Graham Rix to see if we can have a closer look at a couple of them.

I chose to rest Gary MacDonald as he's been hard at it in every training session and I might do the same with Tom Hutchinson on Saturday as the last thing I want is to burn players out before the season even starts. Bash is carrying a bit of an injury but other than that we've got a clean bill of health at the moment."

Admission prices will be as follows - Adults 7, Concessions 4, Students 2 and Juniors (under 16) free.

It is hoped that this gesture will encourage as many supporters as possible to come and watch these two interesting matches and give Dowse and the team their support before the season commences.

Dorking Wanderers 1-8 Kingstonian
Despite going behind to a 20th minute goal, Kingstonian came back to strike eight goals against Dorking Wanderers in the picturesque setting of Westhumble.

Goals immediately on either side of the half time break from Allan Tait and Bobby Traynor put the K's ahead. Tait added another couple of efforts to complete a hat trick just after the hour mark, whilst Traynor added his second of the game shortly after. Further strike from Jerome Maledon, Jack Mcleod and Sam Clayton in the final ten minutes completed the scoring.

Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game, "We got off to a slow start but we sorted that at half time and it worked out well. Good luck to Dorking Wanderers for the season. They've had a number of promotions in their short history and are in the middle of a lot of ground improvements and it's a well managed setup there."

1) Nic Taylor

Dorking Wanderers XI 0-4 Kingstonian XI
A Kingstonian XI comprising mainly of Academy and U18 players overcame a Dorking Wanderers XI by four goals to nil in the early kick off.

Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game, "It was a good workout for the players, split over two games. Mo Harkin returned to action in the early kick and along with Inaki Ordono led the youngsters well."

Adam Thompson
Defender Adam Thompson has left the club by mutual consent. Adam made 118 appearances for the club, scoring 5 goals, during his three seasons at Kingsmeadow.

Manager Alan Dowson comments, "I've known Thommo since he was 16 and he's done very well for me in that time, winning promotions at both Walton and here. Things didn't work out the way we wanted last season though it's now time to move on. I wish him good luck for the future."

Kingstonian 1-5 Sutton United
Last season's league champions Sutton won this friendly with a flurry of second half goals. Having taken the lead through an Alan Bray header on the stroke of half time, the U's struck again through Leroy Griffiths, Ronane MCree, an own goal and Neil Jenkins, whilst Allan Tait struck for the K's.

Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game, "I thought we were excellent for the first 45 minutes but things changed as more subs went on and we tried different formations, whilst they showed that they have more strength in depth. We had a couple of knocks that I wasn't willing to risk before the game and I had to take Dewayne and Bobby off earlier than planned as a precaution. I've had a chance to see everyone in action over the past four days and that's been very useful. We still need one or two players but we'll keep on working on that, and in the meantime our next games are at Dorking Wanderers on Saturday when it will be a young XI in the first game followed by a more senior team."

Lineup:

1) Rob Tolfrey
2) Chris Page
3) Tom Bird
4) Ian Selley

    Leatherhead 6-3 Kingstonian
    Kingstonian finished 4th in the Geoff Harvey Memorial Vase after a 6-3 defeat in the third place play-off against Leatherhead.

    Kieran Lunn scored a first half hat trick for Leatherhead, added to by Josh Gallager to give the Tanners a four goal lead in a half where K's best effort was a Matt Ellis header against the bar. Simon Huckle pulled a goal back in the 56th minute, and whilst Connor Hilder struck immediately at the other end, Malaki Lumsden and Huckle struck again for the K's to close down the deficit. Sol Bonner put any hopes of a late comeback to an end.

    Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game, "It's been a mixed game for us - I was as disappointed today as I was pleased yesterday. We might not have a reserve team but that doesn't account for some of the sloppy play or errors we made today, against a team who were also resting most of their senior players. Some of the younger players will be involved in a trial match tomorrow and the early kick off against Dorking Wanderers next week, but other than that I've got to trim down the number of extra players and trialists now."

    Corinthian-Casuals won the tournament after beating Staines Town 2-1 in the final.

    Lineup:

    1) Nic Taylor
    2) Dean Hamlin (15 Josh Johnson)
    3) Inaki Ordono

    Staines Town 0-0 Kingstonian
    Kingstonian will play Leatherhead tomorrow morning at 11am for third place in the Geoff Harvey Memorial Vase after losing their semi-final to Staines Town after a penalty shoot-out (5-4).

    Bobby Traynor went closest to scoring during the game, curling a strike against the angle of the goal frame. Following a scoreless 90 minutes the game went straight to penalties, where only Simon Huckle was denied.

    Manager Alan Dowson commented after the game, "I'm very pleased with how we set about our game against a team playing their third game of pre-season, how well the new players fitted in, and particularly how much they all wanted it. I want to see the same tomorrow from the rest of the squad as every game matters in our team preparation, and with strong competition in the squad every player has to show me they deserve their shirt."

    Lineup:

    1) Rob Tolfrey
    2) Chris Page
    3) Tom Bird (19 Jordan Cheadle)

    Board announcement
    Following a Board meeting last night, the Club is pleased to announce the appointment of two new shareholders, John Fenwick and Chris Woolston.

    John has been the chairman of the Supporters Club for the past four years and the supporters' representative on the Board for the last two seasons. Chris joined the Board as a director in August 2010.

    John joins the Board as a director, and has been appointed Chairman, with Chris being appointed Vice-Chairman. These appointments will enable Malcolm Winwright and Mark Anderson to step back from the day-to-day running of the club and to share responsibilities with Chris and John, whilst remaining on the Board as directors. Talks are meanwhile continuing with another potential shareholder.

    Simon Murray has also agreed to join the Committee as Financial Controller with immediate effect.

    Director and former Joint-Chairman Malcolm Winwright comments, "When Mark and I prevented the Club from entering administration in June 2006, we resolved that once all the debts had been cleared, Kingstonian was competing at a higher level and the administration of the Club was more structured, we would try and ensure a much wider share ownership.

    "Obviously more people sharing the substantial financial burden each year significantly increase the security for our great Club, and these two important appointments are vital to the start of this process.

    "Mark and I are also grateful that John and Chris have understood the intensity of this project over the last five years. As a result they have offered to give Mark and myself a small breather over the next season with John taking the Chairman's role for season 2011/12."

    Manager Alan Dowson is also pleased with the new appointments. "I have known John, Chris and Simon for some time and they have all worked hard behind the scenes towards making Kingstonian successful. I am sure that this will strengthen the Board and that these appointments will be good for the long term future of the Club. I look forward to working with them."

    Triathlon complete!
    Well done to the management and players of Kingstonian who took part in the Tri For Life fundraising triathlon at Dorney Lake on Sunday, and thank you to everyone who supported them.

    Manager Alan Dowson comments, "I was dead keen to beat the players, and was relying on an injury to take Gary Mac out but both him and Tom Hutchinson did me on the line. Birdy had a big smirk on his face when he went past so that's a fine for him. At the back Bash must have been on one of his schoolkid's bikes as it can't have had any gears given the speed he was going! Hamsey managed to finish on Monday, which isn't bad given all the bulk he's carrying.

    "We've got close links with the Emily Ash Trust - it's a fantastic charity - and we look forward to continuing to work to raise awareness and funds for them."

    Management and players to Tri For Life
    A whole host of Kingstonian people are fundraising in aid of the Emily Ash Trust this Sunday, as they take part in the 'Tri For Life' triathlon at Dorney Lake.

    Manager Alan Dowson comments, "The The Emily Ash Trust is a fantastic charity which supports families of children with cancer. I have taken on this challenge, not only to raise much needed funds, but also to raise awareness of what the Trust does and how it helps families facing cancer.

    "I'm going to lead by example, though after a few miles that might not be literally the case. We've also got director Chris Woolston and scout Adrian Withers (plus family) doing it, as well as players Bash Alimi, Tom Bird, Tom Hutchinson and Gary MacDonald. I'd add Mark Hams too, but he'll be carrying out special duties - like carrying home the knackered.

    "Speaking of which, we had an emotional moment of reflection at training the other night in honour of Gary Mac who's done the the unthinkable and managed to pull through two training sessions in a row unhurt!"

    "I'd better add that Bash and Birdie don't have many friends and need a bit of help, so if anyone wants to sponsor them that would be great."

    Sam Long
    Despite agreeing to join the club, winger Sam Long has gone to Cray Wanderers instead.

    Manager Alan Dowson comments, "I went to meet Sam personally and we shook hands on the deal. He said he couldn't make training on Saturday, when we were going to sort the paperwork out, and the next thing I know Ian Jenkins (Cray manager) is on the phone telling me he's signing there instead.

    "It doesn't surprise me that football has come to this when one minute he says he wants to play for us and the next he's off without any explanation. At least we've got this done and out of the way now as I don't want any characters like that in my squad."

    Kingstonian v Glenn Hoddle Academy
    Former Chelsea and England manager Glenn Hoddle will be bringing the Glenn Hoddle Academy to Kingsmeadow for a pre-season friendly on Wednesday 27th July, kick off 7.45pm.

    The opponents are the first independent professional football academy in the UK, established to offer a route back into professional football for some of the youngsters discarded by professional clubs. They have recently relocated to the National Sports Centre at Bisham Abbey from Spain.

    Glenn and his coaching staff of Graham Rix and Dave Beasant will be happy to talk to fans and sign autographs after the game.

    Paul Olima
    The club is pleased to announce the signings of forward Paul Olima (24) from Thurrock.

    Paul started out at St Patrick's Athletic in Ireland before moves to Grays Athletic and Hitchin Town. He has spent the past two seasons at Thurrock, with a spell at Lewes in between at the turn of the year.

    Manager Alan Dowson comments, "Paul is a big powerhouse, with muscles bigger than Hamsey! Alan Devonshire had lined him up for Hampton good but left before it happened so we've made the move instead. I've signed him to give us a presence up front, but he can also play at centre back if we need him to."

    Sunday 3rd July 2011
    Ian Selley
    The club is pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Ian Selley (37) from Havant & Waterlooville.

    Ian started out at Arsenal, where during a five year spell won trophies including the Cup Winners Cup. Spent three seasons apiece at Fulham and Wimbledon, though injuries interrupted his professional career and so he moved into the non-league game with Woking in 2003. After four seasons at Kingfield he has since had spells at Lewes, Grays Athletic, Maidstone United, Croydon Athletic and Dorchester Town. Ian is a former England U21 international.

    Manager Alan Dowson comments, "Ian is a high calibre player who will help us keep the ball, whilst bringing invaluable experience to our younger players who can learn off him."
