Kingstonian have announced the capture of five players to begin the new season – two of them K’s fans will know from last season, and a triumvirate of newcomers.
Manolis Gogonas is a definite fan favourite from last season, being the only outfield player to stay the whole of the campaign, and he finished second in the voting for Supporters Club Player of the Year. Gogonas arrived at K’s from Windsor, but he began his career in Greece with Asteras Tripolis and then Panarkadikos before moving to England.
Greg Cundle has joined the club on a permanent basis after his loan spell with the K’s from Gillingham. Cundle is a product of the Gills’ youth set-up and signed pro forms with the club in 2015. He made six appearances for Gillingham, scoring once, and has had loan experience with East Grinstead Town, Tilbury, Margate, Billericay Town and Bishop’s Stortford before his excellent loan spell with the K’s.
Matt Saunders is an experienced midfield player who has played in the Football League for Dagenham and Redbridge. He joins the K’s from Hemel Hempstead Town.
Shaun Lucien is an exciting, fast and skilful player who joins the club from St Albans City, though he started pre-season last month with Hampton and Richmond Borough. Lucien played for the Saints for three years, and before that he was at Brentford, Hampton, Uxbridge, Harrow Borough and Wealdstone.
Freddy Moncur joins from Wingate and Finchley. A product of the West Ham United youth system, he joined Leyton Orient in 2015 and made nine appearances for them.
