Ex-Windsor boss Mark Cooper releases statement following departure




There was another managerial change last week among our Berkshire clubs as Mark Cooper announced his departure from Windsor FC.

The now-former boss had led Windsor to a credible seventh-placed finish last season having previously seen the Royalists finish 11th in the Hellenic League Premier in 2019/20, his only other fully completed season in charge.

Releasing a statement to Football in Berkshire and the Maidenhead Advertiser, Cooper said: “A very difficult decision in leaving Windsor but with the prospect of another season without a budget combined with the club not outlining their position on whether they wanted me to continue there was only one option for me.

“I had a great time both as a player and manager here but I don’t want to continue putting in the huge amount of time and effort that is required into a project without the necessary resources to be successful.

“When I took over in 2019 the club was languishing near the bottom of the table with the bear bones of a team. At the end of last season we were in great form losing once in the last eight games, had put together a good squad and finished 7th in the table. With a small bit of investment we could have added the players necessary to challenge for promotion next season but it is what it is and I look forward to my next challenge.

“A huge thank you to Brooko, Malc and all the players that put so much effort into this voluntarily, a huge commitment 3 days a week for the love of the game, and to the supporters who supported us through good times and bad.”
