FA Cup opponents Hellenic Premier side Windsor FC

Cirencester avoided two matches against Highworth Town in 3 days after Hellenic Premier team Windsor FC won the replay 2-1.

Windsor FC were formed when Windsor & Eton fell by the wayside in 2011.

This a little bit of club history taken from the Windsdor FC website

Summer 2011 and it's rather ironic that 100 years of senior football at Stag Meadow should be celebrated by the birth of a brand new club, Windsor FC, which came to be following the sad demise after 118 years of Windsor & Eton FC. During the final death throes of the previous club it became apparent, following several well attended supporters' meetings, that the will was there to continue to host a senior football club in Windsor for the community to embrace and, therefore, on February 4th 2011 WFC Football Community Development Ltd was registered with Companies House with the aim of achieving that objective. Founding Director Kevin Stott and a newly-appointed management committee then set about the long and sometimes arduous task of turning that dream into a reality.

A business plan centred around self-sustainability was formulated and presented to the Football Association which eventually led to acceptance for the new club at level 5 of the non-league system and an allocation to compete in the Premier Division of the Cherry Red Records Combined Counties League for season 2011/12. Now the new club had been accepted it needed a name and invitations were extended to the people of Windsor to nominate and then vote on the new naming process and thus Windsor FC was born.

Self-sustaining and community are the two key elements behind the ethos of the new setup and the provision of a 3rd generation artificial surface training area/small-sided games pitches at the Great Park end of the ground, when completed, will form the first brick in the foundations of the self-sustainability module as well as providing a much-needed facility for the community to use. The other main development thus far on the community side is welcoming on board the 34 teams and over 300 players of New Windsor Youth FC who will now be known as Windsor FC Youth, adopting the club badge and colours and providing a progression pathway from small-sided through to senior football for the youth of the town of Windsor.
