The form of our near friends and rivals certainly startled the Rebels, for on the run of the game the Royalists deserved to win.

Actually we had more of the play than when we beat them 6-2 at Stag Meadow recently.

We had enough chances to make the game safe in the opening half and we had a fair share of the good positions in the second.

The interval score of one all was a good reflection of the game at that point, George Hatcher scoring by catching Moore in two minds with a snaky one.

The play continued even until eight minutes from time and most of us had settled down to accept a draw.

Suddenly the Royalists whipped into life, snatched a fluky one and had consolidated their advantage with two machine like goal scoring efforts. A grand stand finish that turned the scales. And so Windsor and Eton succeeded in winning at Slough, it was not out of turn, for on our last four meetings, inclusive of the Carnival six-a-side final, the Rebels had triumphed each time.

The ground conditions following the thaw were just too terrible for words.

Both team deserved medals for the good displays given on the quagmire ground. Wakefield was excellent in goal and Ron Clements turned a fine game at centre half.

It was grand to see Terror Thomson out again and he and Stan Holton played wonderful, strong and constructive games in the mud. Young George Hatcher also did well with limited scope, but of course all forwards were at a disadvantage in the heavy going.
