Windsor FC boss Keith Scott has 'nothing to hide'

New Windsor FC manager Keith Scott is calling on fans to address him directly after his controversial appointment.

Scott was previously manager of Windsor & Eton FC but was dismissed in 2010, before the club folded.

Scott told BBC Berkshire: "There is a perception that I won the championship but I did it by vastly over-spending, which is completely ludicrous.

"I want to put this to bed once and for all and then to concentrate on being successful for Windsor FC."

The new club has been formed in the wake of the demise of Windsor & Eton and will continue to play at Stag Meadow.

They will start this season in the Combined Counties Premier League and Scott will again work with assistant manager Jim Melvin.

The duo who were in charge as Windsor & Eton won the Berks & Bucks Senior Cup as well as promotion to the Southern League Premier Division.

But Scott remains adamant that the demise of the former club had nothing to do with him.

"We had a mini press conference and one of the questions came up regarding how I feel about the fans who don't want me back. My plain answer to them is to give me a reason why they don't want me back.

"We're going to have a fans forum which the founding director Kevin Stott is organising.

"I want to get that done before the season starts and I would encourage any of the supporters who think I've done something untoward to the old club to come to that forum and ask me any questions they want.

"I have nothing to hide. While I was there as manager, the budgets were given to me by the chairman Peter Simpson and I operated within those budgets.

"He wrote all the cheques and if I was to overspend, he would not have written those cheques."

Scott meanwhile has made his first signing for the new club as goalkeeper Rob Bullivant became the first recruit for the coming season.
