Windsor FC made it safely through to the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy Quarter Finals following a 4-1 win against Shrivenham at Stag Meadow.
This was the third match that had to be played at the second time of asking and like the two before it resulted in a victory for Windsor.
Windsor started strongly but were given an early scare when Aaron Maximen picked out Sam Roberts with his header being cleared off the line by Fergus Moore.
The home side took a deserved lead midway through the half when a quock throw in from Dave Tilbury saw Ben Porter cross for Yashwa Romeo to knock in from close range.
The lead lasted barley a couple of minutes as Shrivenham were soon level when Michael Silvans cross found Elliot Knight unmarked at the far post and his simple lay off to Roberts was easily finished.
If Windsor fans thought that Shrivenham's response was quick, Windsors was even quicker.
From the kick off Dapo Abitogun raced through the visiting defence to finish off by firing past Richard Hanley.
Ryan O'Toole effectively settled the tie before half time when he was put through by Abitogun leaving only Hanley beat and Windsor's top scorer duely lifted the ball over the keeper for the third.
WIndsor came out in the second half looking to extend their lead even further and when Romeo struck from 30 yards it looked like they had until the ball struck the outside of the post.
Shrivenham then did the same at the other end when Maximen found himself clear of the defence only beat Rob Bullivant but not the upright.
Chances came and went for Windsor to put any doubt as to the result and it wasn't until the final couple of minutes that Romeo finally added the fourth.
Having already tried his luck from 30 yards he tried from slighty closer getting the desired result to ensure a home quarter final against Newport Pagnell Town.
