Metropolitan Police 2-1 Kingstonian
An unfortunate late own goal gives the Blues a win in the first pre-mid-season-friendly-thing.
Kingstonian returned to action with a narrow 1-2 defeat at Imber Court at the hands of hosts Metropolitan Police.
After a goalless first half, Tom Cursons opened the scoring for the Blues with a shot past keeper Rob Tolfrey, before Jake Hutchings equalised in the 82nd minute, bundling the ball home after a succession of corners.
Metropolitan Police's winner was most unfortunate, as a back pass in the 84th minute was completely miskicked by substitute goalkeeper Mason Whitnell - these things happen to every goalkeeper once in a while, so we will go again on Tuesday night when we visit Staines Town for another pre-mid-season-friendly thing.
