Very satisfying and fully deserved was Mick Woodham’s verdict on Windsor’s impressive 2-1 win at Walton & Hersham on Easter Monday.
The 11th placed Royalists, who’ve now beaten Hanworth Villa and Walton away from home in recent weeks, are finishing the season with something of a flourish.
But it’s their results against the sides at the bottom of the table that’s concerning Woodham.
They’ve dropped 16 points against the sides occupying the bottom four spots in the Combined Counties Premier Division and a healthier tally against them would have seen the side competing much higher up the table.
“It was very satisfying and fully deserved,” he said. “The results went a bit back to front for us this weekend.
“I’d have expected us to pick up three points on the Saturday and maybe try to nick something on Monday.
“But we like to do things the difficult way. To get an away win yesterday was very pleasing.
"Because they’re one of the most hard working sides in this league. Their goals against tally shows that. To get some-thing there was always going to be difficult.
“So we enjoyed it and had a few beers there afterwards.”
If their form against the bottom sides had been half as good as it’s been against those at the top Windsor would be a top eight side this season, Woodham claims.
“It’s a shame we haven’t been able to produce that kind of performance more often this season.
“The top six sides haven’t scared us this season. In fact no one in the league scares us but we haven’t had the same form against the bottom four.
“We’ve dropped 16 points against them this season and that’s something we must improve on next year.”
Windsor, who were also held 2-2 by North Greenford on Saturday, finish their campaign at home to Camberley Town on Saturday.
