Hammond Hits Top Gear in Final
A brace of goals from Elvis Hammond helped K's to their third consecutive Geoff Harvey Memorial Vase Final victory.
Kingstonian won the Geoff Harvey Memorial Vase for the third year in a row with a comfortable 3-0 win over one of last year's Division One South promotion contenders Merstham.
Both teams changed most of their personnel from their Saturday games with only defender Matt Drage starting both games. However, Kingstonian's pre-season continued satisfactorily with another clean sheet and another three goal scoring effort.
Dan Bennett scored the opening goal in the fifteenth minute with a classy left foot shot passed past the goalkeeper before Elvis Hammond notched his first pre-season goal with nine minutes left in the half. The second half saw fewer substitutions than normal but nevertheless was a comparative cruise, with Hammond sealing the deal sixteen minutes after the break.
K's now move on to a Ground Re-Opening match at Church Road, Whyteleafe, as the Southern Counties East League Champions of last season unveil their newly refurbished ground and 3G pitch. Kick-off on Saturday 19th July is 3.00pm.
