Windsor continued their preparations for the new season with a 1-2 defeat against Combined Counties side Ascot United.
Windsor had the better of the opening exchanges and came close when both Ben Mulley and Billy Montague struck from outside the box withe the efforts going over and forcing the keeper to take action.
The hosts took the lead when a corner was headed in by one of the many trialists.
Ascot managed to pull level on 32 minutes when a low cross from the left was poked in at the far post.
The second half started with the usual raft of substitutions and as with the first half it was Windsor that started the brighter.
Syd Woods raced clear and with only the keeper the beat sent his effort well wide o the goal.
Adam McNamara then sent in a teasing cross but no one was able to get on the end of it.
Ascot upped their game and came very close to taking the lead when an effort from the edge of the box came crashing back off the post.
With just 15 minutes left Ascot did take the lead from the spot and managed to hold on for the win.
Windsor are back in action again on Tuesday evening when they take on St Panteleimon at Arbour Park once again behind closed doors.
