Ex-Ks winger Charlie Knight will get another chance to prove he has put his injury problems behind him and is worthy of a spot in boss Tommy Williams’ squad for the forthcoming season.

Knight, who was a key part of the Kingstonian squad that finished second in the Ryman Premier Division under Alan Dowson in 2014, played 90 minutes in Tuesday’s 2-0 win at South Park.

The midfielder has been in and out of the game over the past two seasons and was at Merstham last term only for injury to limit his game time.

Ks head to Farnborough this Saturday before the midweek Ryman League charity shield clash with Hampton & Richmond Borough and a visit to near neighbours Corinthian Casuals completes the pre-season schedule.

Williams is expected to firm up his plans over the weekend with former Ks defender Adam Thompson also in the mix, but the manager is yet to call time on his interest in Knight.

“We need to build Charlie’s fitness levels up before making a call,” he said.

“We know what he can bring to the table from his previous spell here. He has quality and can provide good deliveries into the box.

“He hasn’t played as much as he would have liked. Injury has stopped him playing.

“Hopefully those are behind him. We want to have a closer look at him and we’ll see how it goes.”

Another hoping to force Williams’ hand is Tooting & Mitcham United centre back Thompson, who has featured prominently in pre-season so far.

But he faces stiff competition from Alan Inns, Sam Page, Bruce Hogg and Max Hustwick in his position.

“Adam has looked a strong defender and has not put a foot wrong,” added Williams.

“We are very strong in that area with three or four players competing for his position.

“We have some tough decisions to make."
