Virginia Water 2 Windsor 1
Waters made their Boxing Day debut at Step 5, in front of a bumper crowd at Stag Meadow, and came away with all three points – just!

A treat for all those watching and end to end stuff for the whole 90 minutes.
VW were the better side in the first half, creating more chances, with the likes of Lorenzo Di Felice, Jamie Read, Scott Jackson, Adam McNamara all having efforts on goal in early exchanges.

We deservedly took the lead on 19 minutes when Scott rifled home from close range, when the visitors defence failed to clear a Finn Evered trademark long throw.

Rather than kick on from that, Windsor fought their way back into the game, and equalised from a corner on 38 minutes.

Undaunted, VW pressed forward, and from one of many corners, the ball broke to Scott, whose goal bound shot was saved – by their defender – Scott scoring from the penalty spot for his second on 41 minutes.

The half was not over, and Dan Roberts ghosted past a few VW defenders but his shot was well saved by Matt, diving at his feet to keep the home side ahead at the break.

VW started the second half brightly and had numerous chances to kill the game off, with Jamie hitting the bar after some excellent work by Scott and Adam, Liam missed a close range header, and we had a few other reasonable chances.

In fairness to Windsor they then put us under severe pressure, and we had Matt to thank for a brilliant penalty save, and some other close shaves.

WFC had a number of free kicks from close range that they failed to convert and in open play VW always looked a threat on the counter. Indeed, late on Adam raced through, only to be denied by a great save by Hugo in the Windsor goal.

A terrific spectacle for those watching, as VW go up to 8th in the league (their highest ever), and their 3rd successive victory – as mentioned above – just!
