WINDSOR regained the winning thread in the Hellenic League Premier Division after a 3-1 victory over Royal Wootton Bassett Town on Tuesday, writes Rob Stevens.

Wootton Bassett took the lead with a goal from Bradley Pagliaroli inside 11 minutes at Stag Meadow, but the contest would take a twist on the half-hour mark.

Bassett defender Michael Miller was adjudged to have used an arm to deliberately block a shot on the goal line and shown a straight red card by referee Jack Hobbs.

Windsor were awarded a penalty kick and Luke Brooks-Smith fired into the roof of the net in the 31st minute.

The hosts won a second spot-kick when Jon Beeden fouled Tomas Kalinauskas inside the box three minutes later. The Wootton Bassett defender was sent to the sinbin and Brooks-Smith again beat keeper Eddie Cavanagh from the spot.

The recent wet weather was the cause of frustration around the rest of the Hellenic League programme with some matches postponed and other started but later abandoned.

The all-Bucks derby between Flackwell Heath and Burnham was abandoned at half-time with the pitch at Wilks Park unplayable due to a downpour.

Flackwell were leading by a single goal after Ashley Howell saw his shot hit the post but Adam Thomas was in the right position to smash the ball home on 18 minutes.
