Windsor got the tough challenge they expected going down 0-3 against National League South side Margate.
Manager Mick Woodham handed starts to new signings Chris Dean, Adam Turner and Riccardo Cannon.
A quick start from the visitors saw them squander early chances but despite that they soon found themselves ahead. A low cross found Ryan Moss in space for an easy tap in.
Moss made it 2-0 shortly before half time where Margate would change all players with the exception of keeper Nicky Bull.
The only change for Windsor saw Owen Richardson replace Jake Jenkins who was suffering with an issue to his thigh.
Margate kept the pressure up and were almost gifted a third when Carl Dennison gave away a penalty only to redeem himself by tipping Zack Atwood's spot kick over the bar.
Windsor's best chance came mid-way through the half when a poor clearance from Aaron Lee fell to Levi Thackeray who's attempted lob resulted in an easy take for Lee.
Minutes later and Dennison found himself facing a second spot kick after a handball by Adam Kirby. This time Freddie Lapado stepped up and made sure this time the ball ended up in the net.
One final chance went the way of Windsor when Kane Jones tried to strike from distance only for the ball to scrape the roof of the net.
