Dorking Wanderers 1-0 Kingstonian
A 90th minute Callum Kealy goal doesn't spoil an excellent first pre-season outing for the K's.
Kingstonian can view their first pre-season contest of 2021 as a success, despite losing to a 90th minute at the Meadowbank to a Dorking Wanderers side that should be among the favourites to win promotion from this campaign's National League South.
This was the first Kingstonian match since December 2020 and it was an exciting and hugely competitive contest between two teams who hopefully are hitting the ground running as they both commence what is hoped to be a fun season for them both.
The only goal of the game came right on the stroke of 90 minutes when Callum Kealy converted a cross from the right, giving K's number one Rob Tolfrey no chance.
Despite the defeat, this was an excellent performance from a competitive Kingstonian team and the next pre-season friendly, against Chertsey Town next Saturday (at the later time of 5pm) at Alwyns Lane, is definitely one to look forward to.
