Cooper's men snatch last-gasp win against Sumas in Challenge Cup

Windsor’s last competitive game was against Reading City back in December.


Windsor FC returned to competitive action with smug smiles on their faces on Tuesday night, after overcoming Wokingham & Emmbrook 3-2 at Lowther Road in the Bluefin Sports Challenge Cup.

Having fallen behind 15 minutes into the clash, Luke Paris tied the score up just moments before the break.

The Royalists were forced to restore parity once again shortly after the interval through Keaton August.

But the script was flipped in the game's final minutes, as Bryan Taylor put Windsor ahead, and stole the victory, in the 96th minute.

“It was a very entertaining game,” said Royalists boss Mark Cooper.

“The pitch was very difficult and it's tight to play on up there.

“We fell behind to a poorly defended set piece but managed to get back in the game with Luke's well taken goal.

“After half-time we came out looking to win and got caught on the counter to fall behind again.

“It was frustrating considering we dominated possession, but we found another equaliser and then deep in stoppage time, get the winner.

“After the numerous times we conceded last minute goals last season, which affected the outcome of the result, it was just nice to score one ourselves.”

Cooper added: “We had a beer or two to celebrate after the match, and to get that sense of normality back is wonderful.

“It's certainly fantastic to be playing again.”
