Some familiar faces beckon Kingstonian v Woking
Trevor Jones Memorial Trophy – Pre-season friendly
3pm on Saturday 30 July 2011

The Cards travel to Kingsmeadow on Saturday for their first away friendly of their pre-season campaign, with the sides contesting the Trevor Jones Memorial Trophy, in memory of the former Ks’ keeper and reserve team manager who also spent some time at Kingfield. The Ks, of the Ryman Premier Division, have a substantial contingent of ex-Cards in their ranks, so it should prove an interesting afternoon both in terms of assessing the progress of Garry Hill’s promising squad and of renewing acquaintance with former Kingfield favourites.


Cards fans will be expecting Garry Hill to start ‘firming up’ his first choice XI in the remaining three friendly games, with more time on the pitch for those players most likely to start against Sutton United when the season begins in two weeks’ time. The news that Moses Ademola has re-signed gives a further boost to the squad, providing more competition on the right flank. The proposed signing of left-back Derek Duncan from Ebbsfleet, for whom the Cards made a ‘seven day approach’, would presumably complete Garry’s pre-season recruitment activity.

The Cards’ pre-season results so far have been:

Woking 0 Arsenal XI 3
Woking 5 Reading XI 1
Woking 0 Charlton Athletic 0


Manager Alan Dowson has been amassing a strong ex-Woking contingent. Tom Hutchinson and Gary MacDonald joined the Ks last season. Dowson has now added Ian Selley and Jerome Maledon. Other new signings include striker Paul Olima, who’s previously scored against us for Thurrock. He will supplement the firepower already provided by the excellent Bobby Traynor and Allan Tait.

Kingstonian’s pre-season results so far have been:

Kingstonian 1 Sutton United 5
Dorking Wanderers 1 Kingstonian 8
Kingstonian 1 Glenn Hoddle Academy 1

They also played in a four-team tournament, losing in the semi-final to Leatherhead.

The two sides have previously contested the Trevor Jones Memorial Trophy, with the Ks coming out on top 2-0 two years ago.


By car

Kingsmeadow Stadium,
Jack Goodchild Way,
422a Kingston Road,

Head for A3 towards London and turn off into Malden Road (A2043). Follow Malden Road to the roundabout and turn left into Kingston Road. From here Kingsmeadow is signposted and is situated about 1 mile up the Kingston Road, on the left-hand side.

By train

The nearest station is Norbiton. From Woking you’d need to change at either Wimbledon or Clapham Junction, depending on which train you get, to take a Shepperton line train. The journey should take about 50 minutes. For example, the 13.33 from Woking should get you to Norbiton at 14.22, via Wimbledon.
Leave station via back exit and head across to Norbiton Avenue. Follow round to end and turn right onto Gloucester Road. Take a left upon reaching Kingston Road at end, and the ground is a few minutes down on the right.


Admisson prices for Saturday’s game are:

Adults - £7
Concessions - £4
Students - £2
U16s - free

The Cards’ next (and last home) friendly is at 7.45pm on Wednesday 3 August when a QPR XI visit Kingfield.

Come on, you Cards!
