Cooper’s huge frustratio­n at lack of match action


Mark Cooper admitted there is ‘huge frustratio­n’ amongst the Windsor FC players and staff given that they will have played just three league games in 10 weeks when they finally return to competitiv­e action at home to Wokingham & Emmbrook on Saturday week (February 19).

The Royalists’ last league outing was against Abbey Rangers (January 29), in which they came up trumps with a 2-1 win at Stag Meadow thanks to a brace from Excellence Muhemba.

Prior to that, they were beaten 3-1 by league leaders Hanworth Villa on January 15, also on home turf, and were 3-2 winners against Virginia Water on December 27. The landlords were due to play their tenants once again on Saturday but the game was postponed due to a lack of match officials, but they do have a friendly lined up against Burnham this weekend before facing a team from the British Army next Wednesday.

“The first thing I would say is that there’s been huge frustratio­n with the lack of competitiv­e games we’ve played,” Cooper said.

“Before we play another league game, we will have only played three in 10 weeks. That gives us a huge disadvanta­ge just through complete lack of game time. Luckily, we’ve arranged a friendly against Burnham for this Saturday because they’re in a the same position aswell.

Then we’ve got a match against the British Army next Wednesday – that has been confirmed now. Hopefully they will put us in good stead.”
