Almost There - 24 April

Windsor FC go into the last few days of the first season in the Uhlsport Hellenic League sitting in 8th place.

Last Friday we played a Friday night fixture in the Hellenic League with high flying Bracknell Town with free admission and welcomed 417 through the gates on a beautiful warm evening. The only spoiler was a 61st minute goal from the penalty spot that Seb Bowerman scored for the visitors. We do wish Bracknell Town good luck for the rest of this season and into next season.

On Monday we played at Highmoor Ibis and had a enjoyable 4-0 victory, albeit very dark at the end with so many lights out of action. Well done to referee Ed Hall on finishing the match. Brad Pearce opened the scoring for Windsor on 16 minutes before Barry Hayles got the first of his two on 37 minutes, a 'wonderful' bicycle kick goal in slow motion. Hayles scored his second on 89 minutes before young substitute Jack Simmons complete the goal scoring on 90+2 minutes.

We now go into the last 4 days of the season, firstly on Wednesday we welcome Wantage Town to Stag Meadow and the on Saturday we make the longest journey of the season when we go to Lydney Town.

Many good memories this season, playing a total of 19 cup ties, especially the 8 Saturdays we played in the FA Vase in reaching the QF before going out to the eventual finalists Stockton Town, 5 rounds of the League Cup before losing to Bracknell Town, 3 rounds of the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup before going out to MK Dons and a couple of Floodlit Cup ties and what seemed an age ago and FA Cup tie early last August.


Windsor v Bracknell Town FREE ENTRY - 20 April

Tonight Windsor go into their 7th match in 16 days when we take on promotion hopefuls Bracknell Town in a FREE entry match.

Windsor's Alan King said. "Our 7 matches in 16 days saw us lose to Bracknell in the League Cup Semi Final 2-1 and then suffered a disappointing home defeat to Tuffley Rovers 3-1. We came back on the Tuesday with a topsy turvy exciting 4-3 win at home to Binfield before going to the league leaders Highworth Town 2 days later and coming away with a 3-2 defeat but with a team packed with teenagers made the hosts work for their victory. Two days later with much the same side tiredness caught up and we suffered a 3-0 defeat at Longlevens. On Tuesday we got back to winning ways with a 3-1 win in the local derby with Flackwell Heath. "

"The match with Bracknell Town tomorrow is not only a FREE match but an experimental Friday night fixture. We will be taking a collection round the ground for the Windsor Homeless Project. The good news next week is we only have 3 matches in 6 days. "

Windsor are closing in on a Buildbase FA Vase Quarter Final on Saturday when they travel to Teeside to take on Northern League Stockton Town.

Club secretary Alan King said. "The final training place takes place tonight (Thursday) the hotel is booked, the bus is full of fuel (hopefully) and the kit is all packed. Windsor go into the match as rank outsiders but full of confidence after a 2-2 draw at Thatcham Town last Saturday. This is the furthest the club have gone in their short Vase history and expect to take between 70 and 100 fans to the match by coach, car and train."

Windsor have a hectic January of cup ties coming up starting with a Buildbase FA Vase 4th Round tie on the south coast at Eastbourne Town on Saturday.

A good following of support is expected for the tie with a number of fans choosing to spend the weekend by the sea.

Three days later we go to the new Arbour Park stadium in Slough to play Uhlsport Hellenic League Division Two high flyers Chalvey Sports in the third round the Bluefin Sport Challenge Cup. This will be the first competitive match between the close neighbours.

Less than a week later we are off to Reading to play Woodley United in the second round of Perpetua Press Floodlit Cup with the winners going to Thatcham Town in Round 3.

We finish the busy month with MK Dons coming to Stag Meadow in the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup Quarter Final on Tuesday 30 January, a match we are hopeful will attract a good crowd. The club have high hopes of reaching the semi final in the first season of competing in the competition.


Hellenic Home Debut For Royalists - 23 August

After a three match league run on the road, Windsor make their Uhlsport Hellenic League home debut at Stag Meadow this weekend.

The away run produced a defeat, a draw and a win. The Royalists’ host Fairford Town on Saturday, then Ascot United on Monday.

Club secretary Alan King (perfect name for the Royalists) comments. “Defeat at Tuffley Rovers was a little difficult to take after the long journey into Gloucestershire, with the winning goal coming so late. We were happier last Saturday as we drew at Royal Wootton Bassett Town, despite playing for 50 minutes with only 10 players.”

“Then last night (Tuesday) we went to Oxford City Nomads and really found our form with a comfortable 5-2 win over the hosts.”

“Our squad will be well utilised, only missing the suspended Joash Nembhard, over the weekend with the two matches coming up in such a short space of time. Kick off for both matches is 3pm.


FA Cup Start At The Dream Finish! - 4 August

Windsor commence the season with an Emirates FA Cup Extra Preliminary Round tie at home to Wembley (ironic to start where they would ideally like to end up!).

Pre season has seen a mixed match of fixtures with two high profile home friendlies with neighbours Maidenhead United and Slough Town. The Stag's also entertained Holmer Green and Virginia Water and travelled to play Penn & Tylers Green and Amersham Town.

"All in all it has been a more than useful exercise for our management team as they plan for the journey ahead." comments club secretary Alan King.

"Last season’s squad have mainly stayed intact apart from Robert Lazarczuk who has gone to Ascot United and Barry Dunbar who has moved to Burnham. We have replaced them with the addition of ex Slough Town midfielder Paul Coyne, ex Reading FC youngster Jack Denton and the very experienced ex Kingstonion manager Tommy Williams, who is making a playing comeback plus Justin Koeriers and Josiah Bridgeman."

"Finally the much heralded arrival of the ex Fulham striker Barry Hayles, signed from his last club Chesham United, has happened and he will be doing a spot of coaching as well as playing."

"Mick Woodham and Ashley Smith are full of confidence for the new season and will be backed up by an U19 team in the National League U19 Alliance and an U18 team in the Allied Counties Youth League."


A New Exciting Era - 25 June

As a new exciting era starts with Windsor's move to the Uhlsport Hellenic League for the 2017-2018 season.

Windsor secretary Alan King comments. "We ended our association with the Combined Counties League by being awarded the Premier Division Fair Play award at the League AGM. A trophy, an inscribed award and a cash prize were presented to Club founding director Kevin Stott by league president Ken Huckle."
