New Windsor manager Mick Woodham was given a tough start to life at the helm suffering an 8-2 defeat at the hands of Egham Town.
Things were looking good for Woodham's newly formed side who were holding the visitors at 2-2 until captain Ben Harris was sent off for handling on the line.
The pre-match team talk was the first time most of the Windsor side had actually met but despite an early set back showed glimpses of what they had to offer.
Just 6 minutes in saw Charlie McCarthey get on the end of James McShane's corner to open the scoring for Egham.
The lead lasted only 2 minutes as Ben Harris won a challenge on the half way line with Jake Galbraith and run un-challenged before hitting a perfect strike ast Paul Borg.
Egham were soon ahead again when McShane turned in Tom Hedges cross but Windsor weren't giving up.
Rob Lazarczuk's cross missed out the entire Egham defence leaving Harris with ample time to ring the ball down before beating Borg again.
Then came the defining moment wich saw the dismissal of Harris for deliberate hand ball on the line. McShane stepped up to put away the spot kick to send Egham ahead for the third time.
The numerical advantage soon showed with 2 very quick goals.
The first was an easy tap in for McCarthey followed by a well taked free kick from McShane for his hat-trick.
Hedges added a sixth just after half time with the seventh coming midawy through the half from McShane.
Josh Andrew rounded off the evenings scoring when he shot from range to beat Walsh.
