So that’s it, our Imperial Fields nightmare is over… conceding our 100th goal in the league seems a fitting way to end it.

A few stats of our torrid time (all based on league games only).

Our record:

Actually better than I thought it would be… still dreadful, but not as dreadful as I would have guessed.

23.8% win rate
10wins, 5draws, 27 losses (across 2 seasons)

If we kept that form away… we’d still be going down, but with a more rosey 32 point total.


Most Imperial Fields appearances

No surprises here, the obvious man when any sort of Kingstonian appearance records are mentioned… the main man Rob Tolfrey

Despite some obvious injury issues across the last two years Tolfrey still managed an impressive 31 appearances across 2 seasons (74% of available league games)


Most Imperial Fields goals

Again no shock… 63% of Eddie D’sane’s 19 league goals have come at ‘home’. (12 goals for those of you needing a little help 😉)


Things we’ll miss about Imperial Fields… (some of these may be tongue in cheek)

1. Pitch. Hayden Bird said the quality of the pitch would allow us to play our best football. Whilst the that certainly wasn’t the case and Hayden sadly wasn’t around to implement it, the pitch is fairly good for this level.

2. The promised fantastic acoustics in the boardroom which allowed us to have all those regular board meetings… a big draw of the move! (Who remembers that haha)

3. A mound outside the stadium to watch for free… because our football was certainly not worth paying for.

4. The 22/23 Shack (RIP to previous ownership)


Things we won’t miss about Imperial Fields

1. Travel
2. Waiting 25mins for a tram (Ollie can confirm the record wait)
3. Lifeless atmosphere
4. Despite rarely more than 100 fans, also a struggle for a car parking space
5. The football
6. The Shack 23/24… the surprise that there was a football game going on every week, which they never managed to cater for, a 20min wait. Never has a venue been more ill prepared to cater for fans


Now that’s enough negativity… I think 6 points must still mean I’m safe from a ban given how many more there should be. You might even call it toxic positivity 😉
