Diary of a new club - Windsor FC

Windsor FC have risen from the ashes of their former club.

Stag Meadow played host to Windsor & Eton until the Royalists went bust last season. But Kevin Stott stepped in, relaunched the club as Windsor FC in the summer, and a place in the Premier Division of the Combined Counties League was secured.

Former Wycombe, Swindon and Reading striker Keith Scott was appointed as first team boss, having managed the previous club.

Starting today, we'll be bringing you Windsor FC's 'Diary of a new club' - and it's fair to say the Windsor fans are in good spirits...

Diary entry 1 - an 11-0 win!

When Total Football approached us to write a regular column on a week in the life of a new football club, we welcomed the opportunity to be able to tell our story as Windsor FC progresses. 

Our challenge is to focus on just one area each week. We've been exceptionally busy since the club was formed in the summer. As I am sure you can all appreciate, there is so much that goes on each week. So where do we start?

This week is easy - and what a great way to kick-off the new column. On Saturday, our team made history as we romped home with an 11-0 victory against Banstead Athletic. Ryan O’Toole scored four of our 11 goals and Kyle Anthony (pictured) scored a hat-trick!

We are still a fledgling club and are proud of our team and supporters. Days like Saturday really make it all worthwhile - the many training sessions of the team, the hundreds of volunteer hours each year that go into keeping the club running and the loyalty of the fans who travel unquestioning to each game. And this also goes out as a thank you to them. Onwards and upwards!
