Windlesham House senior team

On an incredible day of NFL Flag Football, the Windlesham House senior squad led by Robert L, emulated their junior counterparts from 2023 in being crowned regional champions on a day of high skill and even higher drama. The NFL roadshow was back on Windlesham House soil for the second time, bigger and better than before and the players all rose to the occasion. Taking on last year’s champions Warden Park first up, Max P intercepted the opening play, running it all the way back for a dream touchdown start which set the team on the way to a 19-0 win.

The second game against Lancing Prep saw the Lucas VF offence really begin to purr, with short passes, reverse runs and deep balls all in evidence on the way to another 19-0 win and the third game against Cranleigh seemed to be going the same way as a touchdown pass from to Bertie M followed by a 2 point conversion gave Windlesham House an 8-0 lead with half-time approaching. But sport isn’t supposed to be plain sailing and the class of Cranleigh shone through in a 30 point run sparked by some incredible defensive plays.

A short lunch break came at just the right time for Windlesham House, who were sparked into life by the feisty nature of the encounter with the Weald. Three touchdown passes including a 40 yard bomb from Oshi and a lightening run from Leo were added to by an interception return and Imperia run, before some iron clad defence led by Nacho N and Catalina ensured Windlesham House would play off in the final.
