Windsor FC had to settle for a share of the opening day points with a 2-2 draw away at Epsom & Ewell.

Manager Mick Woodham gave no fewer than five new faces their debuts with more coming off the bench.

In hot conditions Windsor started well but the match soon levelled out with both sides enjoying spells of possession and chances.

Windsor were the first to register a clear chance when Adam Turner and Riccardo Cannon teamed up well only for Michael Eacott to save Cannon's effort.

Eacott was on hand again when he had to keep out Levi Thackeray who was quickest to react after Ian Gosling's effort was blocked.

Having had a quiet start to the match Carl Dennison was also in fine form when needed and did well to keep out Reisse Griffin's header from a Sam Currie cross.

Thackeray had another chance to put the ball past Eacott when he got clear but the shot was perfectly placed for Eacott to easily save.

Despite the chances it was Epsom who took the lead just on the stroke of half time.

Currie managed to cross from the right picking out Rob Hendrie who fired past Dennison.

Having tailed off at the end of the 1st half, Windsor came out for the second and made an immediate impact.

A corner from Gosling caused panic in the Epsom defence allowing Cannon to get his first club goal at the second attempt.

It wasn't long before Windsor got themselves in front when Gosling again supplied the cross finding Thackeray who knocked the ball back across goal for Adam Turner to tap in.

Windsor continued to pressure and looked comfortable for the win until the final minutes when Kyle Hough got through and having sent his initial shot wide of the post collided with Dennison earning a penalty and a dismissal for Dennison.

Hough stepped up and converted the spot kick level the scores setting up a tense last few minutes.
