    Matt Pattison
    The club is pleased to announce the signing of midfielder Matt Pattison (27) from Walton & Hersham. Matt's previous clubs are Camberley Town, Farnborough, Woking, Rushden & Diamonds and Basingstoke Town, as well as a loan spell with K's in 2004.

    Manager Alan Dowson comments, "Matt is a quality all-round player who can pick a pass and bring goals to the team from midfield. He's been playing Conference National/South football ever since he was last here, though chose not to go full time at Farnborough a couple of months ago and so this opportunity has come about."

    Fola Orilonishe
    The club is pleased to announce the loan signing of winger Fola Orilonishe (25) from Sutton United. Fola has been at Sutton for the past couple of seasons and previously spent three years with Thurrock.

    Manager Alan Dowson comments, "Fola is the kind of player we have been crying out for - a direct winger who can scare defenders with his pace. He's naturally left-sided and so will also add balance to the team going forward."

    Dowse signs up Fat Boys
    Alan Dowson is pleased to have signed up Fat Boys in time for Sunday's game:

    "I've been looking for a good all-rounder, based locally and available any day of the week. Rumours from a group of our supporters have long suggested that the service at Fat Boys Cafe next door to us in Kingston Road is excellent and that their end product is consistently good. I went along this week on a scouting mission and was very impressed. They all deserve to wear the shirt and so will be in our red and white hoops come Sunday, with a view to a longer term arrangement."

    Fat Boys Cafe will be match sponsors for Sunday's game against Leatherhead, and warmly welcome K's supporters with their extensive menu of meals and snacks.
