Windsor FC held positive talks with the Football Association (FA) on Tuesday as the club looks to secure its place in the non-league pyramid ahead of next season.
The driving force behind the new club, Kevin Stott, and commercial director Fraser Silvey attended the meeting at Wembley Stadium to present the FA???s Leagues Committee with a business plan.
The meeting lasted for two hours and Stott left feeling very positive about what lies ahead.
He said: "I think that both Fraser and I felt that the response to our business plan was very good.
"We were both very encouraged by that.
"It was a two hour meeting that was mostly a Q&A and we were able to answer honestly and sincerely everything that they asked of us."
One topic that did come up during the meeting was the demise of the former club, Windsor & Eton, which folded during the season having been wound up at the High Court.
"We spoke about it," said Stott. "And I think it became clear to them that we tried unbelievably hard to find a way of saving the club.
"But at the end of the day it just wasn't possible and I think they understood that."
The FA will now consider Windsor???s business plan before informing them if they will be confirmed in the pyramid or not.
If the club is accepted, they will have to wait until the end of May before finding out what league they will be placed in.
Stott explained: "We will get some feedback by next Tuesday.
"As I understand it we might get some indication about what league we will be in, but we will not find out officially until May 31.
"But by ratifying the business plan, it???s a confirmation that we will be accepted into the non-league pyramid."
He added: "I was really happy by the tremendous amount of good will and support that we received for our efforts in trying to build a football club.
"I would also like to go on record to thank Fraser Silvey and his team for their help with the business plan."
