It was a remarkable weekend of success for teams in the Maidenhead United Family over Easter. For the first time ever, we saw both men and women first teams record victories on the same weekend that we also celebrated three points for Maidenhead United Women’s Development team and wins for Maidenhead United Men and Women in Futsal. 
It all started on a Very-Good Friday when the men’s first team recorded an emphatic victory over promotion-chasing Aldershot Town in front of the biggest crowd of the season at York Road. Early goals credited to Tristan Abrahams and Remy Clerima gave the Magpies a two goal half time lead and Charlee Adams scored a brace of second half penalties to clinch a deserved win. 
On Saturday, MUFC Futsal Women recorded a thrilling 4-3 victory over league leaders Bedford at Bradfield College in National Futsal Series Tier 2 South. Goal-scorers for United were Sarah Thompson and Isobel Saunders whilst Kate Bowers hit a brace . The following afternoon live on TNT Sports the men swept aside bottom of the league York Vikings 14-3 to keep up their push for a top-four finish in their first ever season in the NFS Tier 1. There were hattricks for Harry Tozer, Diogo Filipe Espirito Santo Luz and Aran Carter whilst Carl Tappin, Brayden Lissington, Jacob Evans and Seth Burkett with a stunning controlled half volley impressed the viewing public by rounding out the scoring. 
The same day Maidenhead United Women and MUWFC Development team both recorded excellent wins in their FA Women’s National League fixtures. The First Team came back from being behind in the game to gain a positive outcome for the ninth time this season. United took the lead through an own goal but hosts Torquay United hit back to lead at the break. Goals inside the final five minutes from Jade Hockey and Trinity Esprit clinched the three points and guaranteed Tier 4 football for MUWFC next season with three games still to play. 
At the same time, the Development Team ran out 5-1 winners over AFC Sudbury at Cox Green Leisure Centre to record their biggest victory of the season, thanks to goals from Molly McKeever, Amy Norfolk, a brace from RJ Jauad-Taborda and Anne-Marie Pejcic. 
Then on Bank Holiday Monday afternoon at Eastleigh, the men recovered from two down at the break to come away with a remarkable 3-2 victory thanks to goals from Will De Havilland, an own goal and a winner with just eight minutes left to play from Shawn McCoulsky. A Perfect Six!
