MICK WOODHAM believes Windsor have built a foundation to move forward with after extending their unbeaten run to four matches.

Windsor, new to the Hellenic Premier Division this season, were beaten in their first league fixture but they have improved since to take eight points from four games.

Woodham saw his team draw 1-1 with Fairford Town at home on Saturday before a comfortable 3-0 win against Ascot United at Stag Meadow on Monday.

Former pro Barry Hayles rescued a point last weekend and opened the scoring on Monday, before Nadir Shafi and Ramel Sutherland secured the points.

The Windsor boss was delighted with the Bank Holiday win and now hopes his stars will continue their impressive form in September, which begins with a trip to Brimscombe & Thrupp this Saturday (3pm).

After the victory over Ascot, Woodham told the Observer: “I’m delighted with that. As a manager, I got a performance out of the boys.

“We managed the game from start to finish, we were economic, scored when we had the chances and controlled the game out of possession. We kept a clean sheet and scored three goals.

“Could we have gone looking for some more goals? It’s irrelevant, we took our chances when they came and I’m pleased with that.

“I’m pleased because it was a good all round performance on a warm afternoon.

“You will go a long way to beating Oxford City [5-2] but they’re different performances. Oxford was away from home and a strong half hour, four goals in half an hour took the game away from them.

“We just had to be patient on Monday. Keep the ball when we did and be positive all the time when we went forward.

“It was just a good team performance and a good result, and you can’t ask for any more than that. I’m very happy.”

He continued: “Not getting three points against Fairford put pressure on us so the boys have had to handle it, especially in a local derby for the supporters, that’s what they’ve come to watch. We had to manage that pressure and did so very well.

“But, in my opinion, on Thursday night when we left training I certainly focused on six points, so on that score I’m disappointed.”

Summarising the first month of the season, Woodham said: “We’re four unbeaten. We lost the first game and admittedly could have got beat more but we didn’t.

“We walked away from there empty handed but since then we’ve picked up points in every game, so four unbeaten gives us a foundation to move into September, and we will”

Looking ahead to Brimscombe & Thrupp this Saturday, he said: “They will be strong, top-six normally, they’re a good side. Let’s focus on everyone dusting themselves down and starting again in training.”
