    Whatever the rights or wrongs of that decision, I enjoyed the afternoon and that's what's important.

    However farcical the ref, you can never condone threats of any sort and that is very embarassing. I hadn't heard that (I was on the other side of the pitch) but that would have been stamped on.
     
    The actual decisions the referee made were fine, his actual decision making was good, that was what was just so stupid and made the rest of it so unbelievable. Anyways, it's a huge shame, but onwards, we have two good young sides who played some good football, and that's what it's all about

    U18s game - Windsor 2-1 Hartley Wintney.
     
    Decent game played by 2 young talented eams, who will do well in time, but will probably struggle in some of the physical challenges that lie ahead against big hairy bearded 18 year olds in their leagues this season.
     
    Referee spoiled it somewhat with a 10 minute delay but that's a-whole-nother story.
     
    I believe their coach (Luke) gets on here and might comment further! (My son, also Luke, ran the line and had a good natter with him, said what a nice guy..,)

    Nobody has mentioned Windsor yet....
     
    Having lost keeper Carl Dennison we assume that 17yo Hugo Sobte will be stepping up. Having come through various PL academies since a young boy he is an excellent keeper with super distribution. Physicality could be the challenge but I think he will do well.
     
    Our squad still isn't fully settled having fielded many trialists in PSFs. Things haven't properly gelled yet but with a whole new coaching set up the makings are there of an excellent 1st eleven capable of producing some good football; we have a fair smattering of talented teenagers coming through and with one or two names to be added yet if they are the ones we are hoping for we could yet be challengers. Depth could be the problem.

    I should imagine he's from Camberley.
     
    Watching them all season then missing out on promotion on the last day is enough to put anyone in a bad mood.

    Yep had the burger and real cheddar on a cheese burger always wins
    Me and Rother had a few small Easter egg treats as I normally provide the jakemans
    Always in control today could have been 5 or 6 Windsor played football on what was a difficult pitch but Cove had their moments ant the No 4
    Not bad at all
    I think we will see cove back in three years once Duncs gets his youth and seniors working together which I know he is very good at
    I know Duncs very well and someone said to me where is this loud shouting Paul Duncan
    I said he is the quiet one over there

    E&E Rich - that's harsh. I suspect you sat next to the PA Announcer in the Boardroom at some stage, as it was Club Founding Director Kevin on the PA! It was an enforced substitution...Levi tried his best to overcome the injury. No malice in Kevin's "commentary" of the substitution. Some might argue they prefer the deafening silence of other CCL grounds to Kevin's PA work, but it adds to the experience! Don't read anything into it.

    I should imagine a bit of heart was knocked out of them when they realised the club wasn't going to get promoted even if they won the league.
     
    Seems a bit bizarre to pay players when no chance of promotion.
     
    It should have been obvious to everyone that the place needed a non league fortune spent on it before promotion could be approved.

    Didn't expect anything else from Krooner.
    Biggest rose tinted glasses EVER.
     
    And yes, a big punt into the box from a few kick.
     
    That's what they did the whole game so no surprise on the 100th punt into the box they scored. Play percentages!!!
    It's just an ugly ugly way to play football. Camberley barely passed the ball to each other and constantly missed out their midfield. Yes winning is the important part but I couldn't play for, manage or coach that style of football. And if their supporters were honest, they would surely prefer to see good football, not hoof it at every opportunity.
    2nd half we played some really nice football and dominated the possession. Better finishing and we certainly would have come away with points. Which is why the sucker punch in the dying minutes hurt even more.

    I love Camberley's keeper. A huge figure, loud, commanding, a leader, good shot stopper and great distribution (most of the time).

    Looked like a tidy enough player from the brief time he was on the pitch against us but he's got a problem and should be banned from tackling!

    I really enjoyed the game last night. I thought both teams tried to play the game in the right way with plenty of pass and move. Even the first half was absorbing although I seemed to be alone on that one from conversations at half time!
     
    We are lacking a cutting edge at the moment but the new faces are settling in well, developing their understandings of each other's movement and (for me) without the whingers in the squad it makes for a more satisfying watch.
     
    Somebody made the point to me that we might not have the individual quality we've had in recent times but this squad looks like shaping up into a proper team.
     
    I agree.
     
    Time will tell.
