Windsor FC lifted their first ever trophy after a 3-0 win against Reading Town in the Berks & Bucks Senior Trophy.
Having seen the squad decimated by injuries over the past couple of weeks many thought that landing the trophy would be an uphill task but this was not the case
Windsor started very strongly against their Hellenic League opponents pilling the pressure on right fro the start.
Just 12 minutes in Dan Hicks got his head to a Kyle Lucas corner only to see the ball firmly held by Nathan Silver.
Minutes later and Silver would gift Windsor the lead and should consider himself very lucky to stayed on the pitch.
Lucas burst through and was felled by Silver conceding a penalty and picking up a yellow card.
Robert Lazarczuk stepped up and fired the ball past Silver from 12 yards.
Lazarczuk then nearly turned provider when hs long throw found the head of Hicks only for the ball to come back off the bar.
At the other end Reading Town nearly grabbed a fortunate equaliser when the ball came into the box hitting Taylor Mitchinson with the ball coming back off the post and into the arms of Carl Dennison.
There was no let up from Windsor when the second half got underway and just before the hour mark Windsor doubled their lead.
Robert Lazarczuk lifted the ball over the Reading defence for Matthew Day to run onto and lift over Silver.
The result was confirmed on 76 minutes when Hicks finally managed to make a header count when he got on the end of a Lucas corner.
Changes from both sides failed to make any difference to the score as Windsor cruised to their first trophy win in their short history.
