Dowson: We'll do it for Ks fans

Kingstonian boss Alan Dowson wants to win the London Senior Cup for the club's fans as much as anything else.

Goals from Gary MacDonald (2), Tommy Hutchinson, Aaron Goode and Allan Tait secured a comfortable 5-2 semi-final triumph over Cray Wanderers at Kingsmeadow last night.

It will be Kingstonian's first cup final appearance since beating AFC Wimbledon 1-0 to lift the Surrey Senior Cup at Woking's Kingfield stadium in 2006.

And Dowson, whose side face cup final opponents Hendon in the league tomorrow, has admitted it is high time his men gave their supporters something to shout about at Met Police's Imber Court home on Wednesday.

"It is the only thing we have got to play for now apart from pride," he said on Thursday night.

"Of course, we want to win nine points from our last three games.

"But I want to win something for the supporters who have stuck by us through a difficult year.

"I also want to win something for the chairman and directors who have shown me a lot of support over the last six years.

"It will be something for the mantelpiece and I want it to be a benchmark for us, the start of things to come."

Dowson must be cautious, former Ks boss Ian MacDonald was sacked after the Surrey Senior Cup success six years ago and the current chief joked he may be better off without a winners medal.
