Under 18s reach Surrey Cup Final


Young K's into 15th May final after 4-0 victory over Corinthian-Casuals

Kingstonian have reached the final of the Surrey U18s Midweek Cup for the first time since 2012 after a fine 4-0 victory over Corinthian-Casuals at King George's Field.

A tight first half saw Kingstonian take the lead in the 32nd minute when Adelino Sampaio converted a rebound. The second half went much more the Ks' way, however, beginning in the 51st minute when Ekow Amaquandoh doubled the Ks' lead, followed by a super header by Ryan Evans ten minutes later.

The home side was reduced to ten men when they lost their goalkeeper when he was shown a red card for denying Ekow Amaquandoh a goalscoring opportunity, but it wasn't until the third minute of added time before Kingstonian added their fourth goal when substitute Pacey Bean converted a through ball from fellow sub Iker Noguera Leon.

Next in this competition is a quarter-final this coming Wednesday as Sutton Common Rovers are scheduled to host AFC Wimbledon. The winners of that game should in theory visit South Park at Whitehall Lane sometime next week, with the final currently scheduled for Monday 15th May, 7.30pm at the Meadowbank in Dorking. Full details will be released when they are confirmed.

The next match for the Under 18s comes up tomorrow (Tuesday) night as the Central Division champions Kingstonian host the South Division winners Worthing in a Champion of Champions Cup Semi-Final. Kick-off for what should be a tremendous game is 7.45pm at South Park, admission is £5.

The other semi-final sees East Division champions Cray Valley Paper Mills host West Division winners Beaconsfield Town on Thursday evebing, with the final taking place next Tuesday 9th May at Bedfont Sports.
