Football in Windsor: The people, the place and the launch of a brand new club

I am delighted, on the 1st February 2023 to launch part one of what I hope will be a multi-year project focussing on the towns and villages that make up the fabric of Berkshire’s past, present and future.

#WindsorMonth is here, and we’ve got a fair bit to get through.

We’re looking at the great players produced by the town – and my oh my there have been a few – we’re looking at the big moments, the celebrations, the iconic kits and grounds from over 100 years of football in the backyard of King’s and Queen’s.

We’ll be looking at the demise of Windsor & Eton Football Club in 2011, the formation of a brand new team, we’ll be asking where the women’s football teams are and we’ll look at rivalries, Sunday sides, grounds and speak to some of the people behind all those moments.

How you can get involved

You can help support #WindsorMonth by sharing what we’re up to, sharing our dedicated Windsor Football page, and you can get stuck in right now by answering two big big questions we currently have live:

Head here to tell us all about your favourite Windsor footballer – whether it’s born and bred, a Windsor & Eton legend or the best player you saw turn out for Old Windsor. We want to know!

And head here to tell us about your favourite Windsor footballing moment – from FA Cup drama to Sunday League heroics. We want to know!

#WindsorMonth we hope will be a look inside the town and it’s football heritage, as well as a focus on what comes next. If you want to keep up with everything we publish on this project, then make sure you bookmark our Project Bark homepage here. In April we’ll be turning our focus on Newbury!

Questions, comments, or things we should know about in Windsor, get in touch via the comments below.

Enjoy the project!


Project Bark‘ is a Football in Berkshire initiative to learn more about the people, the places and the footballing history of the Royal County. Initially a two-year project, it will focus on the main areas of Berkshire from Windsor to Thatcham, Wokingham to Maidenhead – with plenty of villages thrown in for good measure. The project will bring together the best that Football in Berkshire has to offer in writing, audio and visual content with a range of guests, interviewees and research. You can keep up with the project and everything else Football in Berkshire by subscribing for free here.
