Match report

For Old Windsor this was always going to be a good test but the whole club was determined that the good start needed to continue into November. There was an air of determination in the changing rooms before the match and this transposed to a flying start as Old Windsor started on the front foot with a number of early corners. The first incident was after 8 minutes, Luke on one of his mazy run was challenged in the area in what looked a penalty, the referee disagreed and play continued. The first good chance was on 10 minutes when Lewis was put through, took on the full back and pulled the ball back to Nick who unfortunately shot over. On 13 minutes Old Windsor did take the lead, this time the referee pointed to the spot when Luke was brought down and Harry tucked away the resultant penalty kick. Iver Heath responded well and started to apply some pressure, but never really created much in the way of chances. Their best chance came from a free kick given away by Dale, but the shot was blocked by the wall. Old Windsor always looked threatening on the break with pace being a real threat. However the second goal was a superb header from Dale. Joe was fouled, the free kick was floated into the box and Dale's header from 15 yards looped over the keeper.

2-0 at half time is always a dangerous scoreline but the boys controlled the game in the second half although there were very few chances, a bit bias maybe but there was only one team that look likely to score and that proved the case. On 67 minutes an Old Windsor corner was cleared which fell to Shorty who lobbed it back into the area where Harry tucked it neatly past the keep. 8 in 4 starts for Harry, he's on fire at the moment. Final goal was a worldey from Joe, so he said! A shot from 20 yards giving the keeper no chance.

That was that, a resounding 4-0 win, making it 7 out of 7 in the league, keeping us 6 points clear at the top of the league. Russ stated "a fine all round team performance with a couple of superb goals from Dale and Joe. Momentum is good and with the team top of the league we can turn our thoughts to the cup completions over the next 2 weeks."

Man of the match was given to Nick Loates for another combative performance in the middle of the park.
