Match Report

This week Old Windsor returned to League action and made it 10 out 10 wins with a 4-1 victory and probably their best display of the season, especially in the 1st half. The game started at a pace and with Old Windsor playing the 4-3-3 formation it was a full back that made the difference after just 3 minutes. Scouse chased the ball down the left and as the Gryth player tried to see the ball out Scouse managed to hook the ball to Jake who rolled the ball across to Joseph who tapped it into the unguarded goal. With Old Windsor setting into a shape they should have made it 2-0 on 6 minutes when Harry's penalty was saved after the Gryth player handled the ball in the area. However they did make it 2-0 on 15 minutes when Dale got on the end of Brads corner and thumped his header across the goal into the top corner. The whole team was playing as one and although Gryth tried everything they could not impact the game. Then on 30 minutes a goal for Gryth out of nothing, the forward chased into the corner Lex dived in and the striker then hit a cross shot that ended up going in the top corner. This did not knock Old Windsor out of their stride and on 37 minutes Walts finds Harry who beats one and then hits a lovely shot into the far corner.

3-1 at half time, the team got their orders to keep their shape, stay tight and together then press forward when they had the ball, this tactic worked like a dream. There was some half chances for Harry, Joseph and Jake but the final goal was an individual effort from Walts, he picked the ball up on the half way line beat about 5 players and smashed his finish past the keeper.

Yet another great team performance with every player playing their part and the only downside to the afternoon was Dale and Joe's injuries. Next week Old Windsor travel to FC Beaconsfield in what could be a title decider.
