In the absence of a long-term lease from its landlord The Crown Estate, Windsor Football Club’s survival is being placed on the line – one that will impact on 100’s of young people and their families across the Royal Borough of Windsor & Maidenhead.

Paul Sedgwick, Head of The Crown Estate in Windsor Great Park has been authorised by The Crown Estate Head Office in London to finalise the lease. Even though the football club met all of The Crown Estate’s criteria to be granted a lease as long ago as 2011, no lease has been forthcoming.

In addition The Crown Estate is withholding in excess of £50,000 from the football club for rental income it has received from telecoms masts attached to the club’s floodlight pylons. The Crown Estate flatly refuses to share this income on a 50 – 50 basis as was always intended.

Meanwhile I have put in excess of £200,000 of my own money into the club to keep it going pending the finalisation of the lease. 6 years is just too long to wait – we will complete BREXIT in less time that it has taken The Crown Estate to achieve nothing.

It’s time to act; we need your help now!

Thank you for your support.

    Come on Crown Estates. Support the community and give this great local club some sense of security so they can focus on football! Pretty sure Crown Estates is quite well off and splitting the telecoms funds is the least you can do. Let the club flourish and grow!

    Imperative if we are ever to be promoted back to the status we were before Windsor and Eton FC were liquidated.

    Crown Estates needs to supports its local football club which has served the community across 3 centuries and long may that continue.

    Time the crown estate acted in a responsible manor to the local communities it holds property in.
