Kingstonian finished off their pre-season programme with their first ever home fixture at King George's Field, Crystal Palace sent a young side to the game and both teams contributed to an entertaining goalless draw that saw the second half played in wet and very rainy conditions (ed: we had to look up on Wikipedia, other information-based websites are available, to find out precisely what this wet stuff was, it's just been so long...).
Both teams had goals disallowed, K's in the first half and the Eagles in the second half, both for offside as neither team eventually found a way to break the deadlock.
Kingstonian's next game is at King George's Field on Saturday (kick-off 3pm) as they face Brightlingsea Regent in the opening fixture of the 2018-19 Bostik League Premier Division season.
