Fun fact

Yesterday was the first time Ks have won on New Year’s Day for 30 years! An 8-1 Surrey Senior win in 1990, which I believe was also Simon Bell’s first game!

Our last league win on new year’s day was 1985.

I think 30/31 was the most fixture congestion:

It was 14 games from 12th April to 2nd May: Sat, Wed, Thu, Sat, Mon, Wed, Thu, Sat, Mon, Tue, Wed, Thu, then 2 games in one day at respective venues against Wycombe. Quite a few cries of "Wake up K's" at the end of that run I believe.

Richard: i have a question. An Arsenal fan on the 59 bus today bellowed "up the Gunners" upon seeing my red and white scarf. "this is Kingstonian" i replied. "but it's Arsenal colours", the Gooner countered.

i then said something based not on confirmed historical fact but mere hope and instinct: "we were red and white before you".

but were we?

In1886 Dial Square decided to wear the same colours as Notts Forest, so Arsenal colours date from then. K's date from 1885, what did they wear?

Young man, just hope that at the next match we both attend where it's raining your scurrilous assertion slips my mind....

I read Richard as suggesting that pre- final merger we were not in red and white but certainly were from 1890 in that incarnation anyway.

We were only red & white hoops from 1919 but Old Kingstonians were, I think, in red & white stripes when they were formed in 1907/08. No colour photos to confirm and the stripes look a bit light in B&W to be the sort of red we have today.

Started as blue shirts, moved to all white which Kingston On Thames continued with. No idea when Arsenal were formed or if they were red at the start, so the best you might be able to say is to a Chelsea fan that we were blue before you!

Oops... Just found Kingston Wanderers in 1890-1891 were playing in Cherry and white stripes so you might have got lucky with your Arsenal comment!

They may have beaten us by 4 years

"In 1886, before the Club became professional, a small group of Nottingham Forest players, Fred Beardsley, Bill Parr and Charlie Bates, joined Dial Square FC, (the Club's first name) and brought their old red kit along with them."

Arsenal were formed in 1886 as Dial Square. The original kit was Red Shirts with White Shorts. The storey about the Nottingham Forest players giving Arsenal their first set of all Red shirts has now been questioned as there is no evidence to support this.

Arsenal did wear Red and White Hoops at least twice in the FAC in 1936 away to Liverpool and Barnsley.

In 2005/06 Arsenal reverted to the colour shirts of 1913. 1913 was the first year at Highbury and 2006 the last. The kit in 1913 changed in 1919 to the colour red worn today. The 1913 kit was a very dark red, almosr maroon.

It's on the official arsenal website. But then they specialise in framing false narratives.
