Match Report

In the B&B cup you never know what you are going to come up against and this match was no exception, playing Woodley a club with multiply teams and this team sitting in mid table in the Thames Valley Premier division. However it soon became apparent that Old Windsor's pace an forward play was going to be to much for their opponents. In the 1st five minutes both Harry and Chris had good chances, Dan was called into action when required to tip over a long range effort. The chances kept coming, the keeper made the first of his saves from Chris, 2 minutes later Harry hit the post after latching on to Louis header. this was all the first 15 when we did take the lead and an unexpected scorer in Scouse, who played a great one two with Luke and then finished well in the far corner. Chances continued to come and go for the front three, as well as Nick,Luke was running riot down the left and a constant threat. On 30 minutes it was 2-0 Nick was put through on goal, the keeper pushed him wide and he then pull the ball back and Harry's shot went in off the post. Dan was again called into action, having to tip over another shot from distance.

2-0 at half time and Russ makes a couple of subs, Brad and Lewis on for Harry and Luke, the pattern of the match did not change the pattern of the match. Chris made it through as he chipped the keeper after being put through by Lewis. 73 minutes Nick made for after his deflected shot wrong footed the keeper. Lewis then scored 2 in three minutes with a couple of good finishes. Chris finished the scoring off as he bundled in Lewis cross.

Once again the forwards will get the credit for this fine victory but as we all know the defence needs to be solid to allow the forwards to do the business, the back five where outstanding and deserve all the praise being given to them. Rory led the midfield like a man possessed, with Nick not far behind. but man of the match was Chris, a fine performance, capped with two goals.

Russ stated "Really pleased with the result that in truth could have been more, the lads applied themselves well in tough conditions, credit to Woodley who never gave up and fought to the end. Focus now turns to the first of two games against Singh Sabha,next week in the in the Wycombe Cup."
