Combined Counties League – Premier Division
HARTLEY WINTNEY v WINDSOR
Report by David Graham
Windsor sportingly applauded Hartley onto the pitch as Division champions for the second successive season. The match was barely one minute old when the Row took the lead. Young Windsor goalkeeper, Henry Poole, did well to parry an effort from Andre Williams for a corner. Dean Stow’s low delivery found Liam Eagle who blasted his shot on the half volley into the roof of the net from 15 yards. (1-0)
Hartley probed for the remainder of the first half but without creating a worthwhile chance. The nearest they came to scoring was an effort from Luke Perkins on 12 minutes which went just past the post.
Windsor pulled level on the stroke of half time. A long cross from the left looked like going harmlessly for a goal kick. However, Gus Bowles refused to give it up, and kept the ball in play before feeding Riccardo Cannon who shot home from 10 yards. (1-1)
HALF TIME: HARTLEY WINTNEY 1 WINDSOR 1
Hartley restored their lead on 51 minutes following a through pass from Ian Jones. The ball arrived at Andre Williams who ran on and scored past the outrushing Poole (2-1).
The Row almost extended their lead on 55 minutes; being denied by smart goalkeeping from Henry Poole. First he pushed a goal-bound header from Shane Hollamby around the post. Then, from the resulting corner by Dean Stow, he did well to save a powerful header from Liam Eagle.
Windsor made a late rally and on 82 minutes a powerful shot from a difficult angle by Kieran Knight was pushed over by Paul Strudley.
Hartley held on to record league win number 32 from 40 matches played. [D Graham]
