Match Report

This match started at a pace and within 3 minutes Old Windsor took the lead when Dale was bear hugged at a corner and the referee decided it was a penalty even though the ball was nowhere near. Harry stepped up and slotted it coolly away. Then 5 minutes later the referee evened it just as Iver Heath had predicted he would when he decided that a a shoulder to shoulder challenge that saw the Iver Heath player theatrically go to the ground was a penalty, penalty was tucked away. The half was even with no real clear cut chances, the nearest to a goal was when a free kick was headed against his own post and Dale could not get the rebound. Both teams had header from corners of target and Harry has a shot that he did not catch and went straight at the keeper. 1-1 at half time and all to play for.

Iver Heath started well in the second half and took the lead when a long ball went over lex and the resultant shot went in off the post. Within a minute we was level a long rory throw missed Dale and Harry finished smartly. On 53 a great move ended up with Lex smashing the ball against. the post. Next chance went to Heath a free kick took a deflection and Dan made a smart save tipping the ball wide. Then a period of even play with both teams probing but no real chance. On 70 minutes Luke White sent off after a lunge at the Heath back who reacted vilently and was luck not see red himself. Dan made another good save tipping over a header. The winning goal game in stoppage time when a hopeful ball to the back post was well headed in, although Lex was not happy with his efforts to stop the header. Old Windsor went for the equalizer and saw a good shot blocked and had a strong claim for a penalty that was probably more of a penalty than the two given in the first 10 minutes. But hey that's football.

Russ was frustrated and disappointed at the result but could not fault the players for their efforts, we move on to the Maidenhead Norfolkian Cup next week against a strong FC Beaconsfield team.

Old Windsor Clubs Man of the Match was James Walton
