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

1926-1927 SEASON

This is a (long term) temporary page in order to provide stats and reports for the 1926-1927 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:

After a couple of early games, Kingstonian played their postponed London Senior Cup Final from the previous season, where they were defeated 3-1 by London Caledonians who also knocked them out of the current season's competition.

With exemptions until the final qualifying round of the F.A. Cup, K's made history by reaching the First Round Proper for the first time, but it was an unhappy debut as they were beaten 9-0 by Isthmian League team Nunhead. The defeat was in part caused by missing their regular keeper, Len Harman, who had injury problems throughout the season and, with other players injured or missing at various times, this resulted in a less than successful campaign. In addition left winger Vic Barnes had moved to Crystal Palace and it was a slot that was not satisfactorily filled.

They were also not helped by all but two of their fourteen cup ties being drawn away from home with two being played at neutral venues. They suffered bad defeats away from home in the other major cup competitions, losing 6-1 to Barking Town in the Amateur Cup and 4-0 to Dulwich Hamlet in the Surrey Senior Cup.

Despite these setbacks, goals were still plentiful with Macey and Mann scoring 28 each, but, having started well, Kingstonian dropped off the pace in the second half of the season and ended up in second place 5 points behind Southall. They were to win a token trophy in the London Charity Cup where they beat Ilford 3-2 in the final at Barking, although the Semi Final 3-2 win at Wimbledon was probably more of a highlight.

K's only fielded one reserve team entering the newly formed Athenian Reserves League and finished mid table. There was no 3rd team due to lack of personnel to run it.

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