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.

    Please give Windsor FC the lease. They are a vital part of the Windsor community and I have 2 young boys plus all their friends in the Windsor Youth FC setup. We need WFC for these boys aspirations.
    Good luck WFC.
