Windsor's journey in this seasons FA Vase has come to an end after a 4-2 defeat away at Whyteleafe.
Windsor were without Dan Hicks, Kyle Jeffrey, Ben Harris and lost Luke Dexter in the pre-match warm up.
Those problems aside, Windsor started brightly and a long Robert Lazarczuk throw found the head of Adam Kirby but the ball went over the bar.
Whyteleafe went straight down the other end and almost grabbed an opener of their own when Roscoe D'Sane got free only to be denied by Carl Dennison.
The hosts eventually took the lead after 11 minutes when a Windsor free kick was cleared allowing Taylor Smith to break down the right and cross for D'Sane to stab the ball in.
Windsor nearly hit back soon after when Lazarczuk again found Kirby with a long thriw but this time he was denied by the out stretched hand of Sheikh Ceesam.
They did manage to pull level just before half time thanks to mistake by Ceesam.
Aaron Johnson threw Ceesam the ball only for the keeper to miss it allowing Harry Pearse to eventually turn the ball over the line.
Shortly after the break Windsor got themselves in front thanks to a slip from Ryan Fowler which gave the ball back to Pearse who in turn slipped the ball through to Kane Jones for a well placed finish.
It was all level again when Windsor failed to get the ball clear following a free kick which eventually found the head of Taylor Smith and then the net.
10 minutes later and 'Leafe restored their lead when a long punt up-field by Ceesam managed to get through and was put in by substitute Ollie Thornton.
With Windsor pushing players up for an equaliser the inevitable happened and a mis-control from Dennison allowed D'Sane to cross and Sam Clayton to turn in.
After the game Windsor Manager Mick Woodham said "I was pleased with the performance but disappointed that we did not do ourselves justice. Losing Luke Dexter during the warm up did not help, however, Adam Cooke came in and his application was excellent."
