Old Windsor will fight to the bitter end in battle for Premier Division title

Old Windsor manager Darren Wareham insists his side will fight to the bitter end in the race for the Premier Division title this season.

The battle for the crown took a surprising twist last week when leaders Britwell suffered defeat at the hands of an improving Stoke Poges in a Showcase Match.

The result meant Britwell missed the chance to move eight points clear at the top, and defending champions Singh Sabha cut the advantage to four points last weekend - and still have a game in hand.

Old Windsor, the 2018-19 Premier Division champions, are 13 points behind Britwell but with four games in hand and new boss, Wareham, would dearly love to bring the title back to The Os.

He said: “Britwell losing was a surprising result but fair play to Stoke Poges for going into a Showcase Match and beating them.

“It gives us, Singh Sabha, and one or two other clubs a chance at pushing Britwell for the league.

“We won’t give up. We will fight to the end. I’ve said in every game we’re going to fight to the death and we will do that until the very last match of the season.

“We’re looking forward to the challenge of the league and the Cup competitions that we’re in as well, so there’s loads to play for and some exciting times for the club.”

The Os bid to reach a first-ever Slough Town Cup final when hosting Premier Division rivals Frontline in the semi finals this Saturday (1.30pm).

Wareham commented: “We played Frontline a couple of weeks back and beat them. Our Reserve side have played them since and gave them a good game, took them to extra time, and were unlucky.

“We will not take it lightly and I will make sure I have a full squad for it. We will go into it with confidence after playing really well on Saturday. We should’ve won that game in my opinion.

“We will go into this Saturday full of confidence that we can win and get to a first final.”
