An ongoing project to record and preserve the history of Kingstonian FC

1924-1925 SEASON

This is a (long term) temporary page in order to provide stats and reports for the 1924-1925 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:

While the core of the team was unchanged from the previous championship winning season, Kingstonian were affected by call ups for representative games, as well as sporadic injuries throughout the season which made it difficult to field the same team with any regularity. A league rule that defined teams as senior or junior also meant that reserve players were only allowed three appearances in the first team before they were classed as senior and not allowed to play for the reserves again. This made it harder to fill gaps with the best available players.

K's had still started the season where they left off
by winning all their games up to the middle of November and held their place at the top of the Athenian League. Exemptions from the early rounds of the major cup competitions didn't help to provide any extended cup runs and they were beaten in their first match in both the F.A. Cup and Amateur Cup. The F.A. Cup game was against a professional team, Folkestone, and two days later they also lost to another professional team, Tottenham Hotspur, in the London Challenge Cup. K's did at least get a trip to White Hart Lane and face the Tottenham first team, although a crowd of only 3,219 lacked the big match atmosphere in a 5-0 defeat.

They did however reach the Semi Final of the Surrey Senior Cup before being beaten by Dulwich, in a game played at Wimbledon, and they were back at Wimbledon, against Wimbledon, for the final of the Surrey Charity Shield but were again beaten. League form dipped in February and March and they lost their hopes of retaining the title, eventually finishing 3rd.

Calls on players by the first team also affected the reserves who finished 7th in the Surrey Intermediate League while the third team again finished 3rd in the Kingston & District League.

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