Alan Shearer chose 3 Newcastle games,so here are my 3 K s games
CHELTENHAM semi final as was a once in a lifetime chance to get to Wembley

Trophy final winning was utopia

BOREHAM WOOD league winning season ,why this match of that season,becos at time they could catch us,a win would put daylight between our teams, we were under siege for last 15 20 minutes seemed like eternity plus,
Keeper Jerome John had a blinder , we outnumbered their support by 4 to 1 as their ave was 287 attendance was 1029

Great picks Tim. Cheltenham away is my top ever too. Narrowing down the rest is harder!

I'm gonna pick one that is away from the mainstream picks.

Wealdstone away back in 2004. Here's Simon Grier's match report - just one of those great Ks day outs!

Yeah, was just thinking that actually; there needs to be Chapple top 3 and non-Chapple top 3 selections otherwise BFG dominates!

I will go for three in different eras. 1) London Senior Cup semi Final Feb 1964 Kingstonian 3 Wimbledon 1. Remember Eddie Reynolds being sent off at the changing room end so he didn’t have a long walk but still see it. Eddie Reynolds famous for scoring all four of Wimbledons Amateur cup final goals with his head. 2) Semi final Trophy away to Cheltenham and the third goal from Pattison. Made up for the Amateur cup semi final replay extra time defeat to Enfield . 3) This seasons Trophy win against Woking . Cemented a memorable season against local rivals.

The Trophy final against Kettering runs close.

My top 2 come in no particular order - Surrey Senior Cup Final 2006 & the 4-2 playoff win at Sutton in 2010. After that I guess it'd be rude of me not to pick one of the FA Trophy finals of which 2000 gets the nod over 1999, more goals & from me at least more of an expectation to retain the trophy rather than the feeling of hoping to win it for the first time the previous year.

My top games 1960 Amateur cup semi at Newcastle 2-1 winners over Crook Town. After the '55 drubbing by Bishop Auckland nice to go to their back yard and show them that we Londoners can also play a bit.
1960 Johny Whings sensational Goal at Wembley to put K's in the lead alas we lost that game. About 1958 going to the Oval K's v Corinthian Casuals, K's winning 6-0

I've been waiting until today to respond to this because -

Eight years ago today 9th April 2012, was our last match using the small terrace at the Kingston Road End. Celebrated here: http://kingstonian.net/report.jsp?20112012/MetropolitanH. "Emotionally, it meant everything to the Ks fans behind the goal."

My other two games would be -

)ur last ever match at Kingsmeadow, April 2017. Celebrated here: https://www.theguardian.com/football/2017/apr/25/kingstonian-kingsmeadow-lost-stadium-chelsea-afc-wimbledon. " the final salute [began]. The jets of red and white fireworks – an impressive and prolonged display, compromised only by the clear afternoon sky..."

And our 4-2 victory over Sutton 27th Apr 2010 and those wonder goals from Bobby Traynor: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=GaHF0qN4p5M

April - a good month to be a KIngstonian fan.

Reading that article makes me a bit emotional every time! It's probably the only unbiased bit of reporting on the KM thing there was which upset a few Wombles iirc as it didn't adhere to the regular media narrative that they were the saviours of football.

Thanks Rex - I recall all 3 games with wildly differing emotions - Indifference, Semi-bereavement and ecstasy.
