It’s a new year, and revenge was the first thing on the agenda for Kingstonian in the first week of 2018 fixtures as they kicked off against Fulham (Coulsdon) in a reverse fixture of the last game of last year.

That game finished 4-0 to Fulham and allowed them to leapfrog their opponents into sixth place. This time out that changed… again.

The contest started as the last one finished, a Fulham goal. Adebayo Elegoshi was on target early on as the away side took a deserved 1-0 lead into halftime.

Then the magic happened for Kingstonian.

Owen Coleman struck a devastating hattrick in 13-minutes for the home side, flipping the game on its head completely….and they say 13 is unlucky.

Denis Rossi put the icing on the cake late on to shuffle the places of these sides once more, this duel is one to keep an eye on this season.

Elsewhere at the top of the table, Havant & Waterlooville kept up the chase of the unbeaten league leaders Aldershot as they overcame a resilient Hampton & Richmond Borough side 3-2.

They remain second, only three points behind the strong Shot’s side, who also narrowly beat their opposition of Woking 1-0 away.

Borough remain in tenth whilst Woking also stay cemented in fourth looking like being the new Arsenal this campaign.

But these slim defeats should surely come of vast encouragement for the two sides with the consistency of the top two almost being broken. New year, new form?

Unfortunately for Corinthian-Casuals, that phrase didn’t quite ring true for them this time out. They suffered a 0-3 defeat at the hands of Tooting & Mitcham United with a Chance Donnolly brace adding to Jarrette Ghansay’s goal.

The final game of this week saw Whyteleafe and Carshalton Athletic play out a 2-2 draw, with both sides still sitting on the opposing fringes of the mid-table wilderness at this stage of the season.

Next week AFC Wimbledon and Eastleigh Whites join their counterparts with their first matches of the season versus Hampton & Richmond and Woking respectively.

The other fixtures see Aldershot Town take on Whyteleafe, Carshalton Athleic Vs Tooting & Mitcham United and Fulham (Coulsdon) Vs Havant & Waterlooville.  

Football’s back and isn’t it bliss.
