Slough’s opening pre-season friendly ended in defeat at Stag Meadow.

The Rebels gave run-outs to 17 players, including Reece Yorke, Luke Knight and two trialists. After an end-to-end opening period, Windsor took a 13th minute lead with Kane Jones scoring with a delicate lob over Jake Somerville. The Rebels had seen a header cleared off the line moments earlier.

Johnnie Dyer replaced Warren Harris, who picked up a knock midway through the first half. Jake Parsons fired an effort wide as Slough looked for an equaliser, but Windsor doubled their lead through Rob Lazarczuk, who looped a header over Somerville from James Quinn’s free kick.

Kane Jones was denied by a super save from Somerville, but made it 3-0 after more sloppy defending, slotting in to an empty goal after a mistake from the Slough keeper. Johnnie Dyer pulled a goal back before half time, finishing neatly as the ball fell to him in the box.

Slough made five half time changes, but still struggled to break Windsor down. Kyle Lucas forced Somerville into a good save before a clash between Slough’s Luke Knight and Windsor goalkeeper Carl Dennison resulted in a yellow card for Knight and a red card for Dennison, who appeared to throw a punch.

Eddie Lazarczuk took Dennison’s gloves, but was not troubled unduly by Slough for the remainder of the game – and Windsor went on to score a fourth, with Jamie DiGuiseppe curling in a free kick from 20 yards, to cap a well-deserved win.

DiGuiseppe went close from another free kick, Somerville again saving well, whilst Slough were frustrated in their efforts to find the back of the net, with Jamie McClurg shooting wide and Seb Castello hitting the bar with the whole goal to aim at after a header back across goal had come back off the post.

Slough’s second pre-season match is at Marlow on Tuesday evening, KO 19:30.
