1923-1924 SEASON

This is a (long term) temporary page in order to provide stats and reports for the 1923-1924 season. There are links to a single Surrey Comet report (as a JPG picture) for each game via the match by match stats below. Eventually it is hoped to provide a full season summary and multiple reports for each game with any other news items of interest but this will be some way into the future.

Brief summary of the season:

If the period after World War One had largely been about securing the future of the club and finding a permanent home, season 1923-1924 was the season where financial matters could finally take a back seat to the football. Kingstonian had their best season to date and, despite exiting the F.A. Cup and Amateur Cup at early stages, they were to go on to win the Athenian League for the first time, as well as reaching the final of the London Senior Cup and the semi finals of the Surrey Senior Cup. They were often winning in cup ties against the more established Isthmian League teams, beating three Isthmian sides in the London Senior Cup before losing to another Isthmian side, Tufnell Park, in the final played at Millwall.

Much of the success was down to the arrival of Frank Macey who scored 36 goals in 31 appearances and he formed a successful partnership in the forward line with Mills and Marchant that was to become known as the three Ms. In every position there was a stable quality to the team and very few changes were needed in the line up from week to week. Goals were plentiful with 113 goals in just 40 matches which included nine in two games and eight in another.

Aside from the success of the first team, Kingstonian fielded two other teams with the reserves also winning their league, the Surrey Intermediate League Eastern section. The reserves also won the competition overall by beating the Western League winners, Tarrants, in a play off final at Addlestone. The Third Team finished 3rd in the Kingston & District League Premier Division.

Details of the Reserves will be added at a later date.
