The road to Wembley still open to the Green Lions
Today, in their 50th competitive match Guernsey FC defeated Farnham Town FC to progress into the first round proper of the FA Carlsberg Vase. Glyn Dyer played today but did not score. However in the previous league game in the CCL Premier Division he netted twice, and the Green Lions are currently second in the table, 3 points behind the leaders Egham Town, with the Lions having two outstanding games in hand.

Guernsey FC march on to Wembley in the FA Carlsberg vase in an incident packed game against Erith Town. The match sadly marred by a serious leg injury to Ryan Zico Black. The match was delayed for almost 1 hour. Down to ten men, Erith Town still managed to carve out a 3-0 lead and it looked all over. But Guernsey showed that unbeleivable fighting spirit and managed to pull level before full time. Ross Allen scored the winner in extra time, but the match will be remembered for the unlucky Ryan's injury and he will be missed for some time. Mr H was talking about going to watch this one. I wonder if he made it ?

Guernsey's remarkable journey in the FA Vase/Road to Wembley continues :o :o :o
Away to Rye United with a much depleted side, lacking match practice due to so many cancellations due to the weather, Guernsey go through to the last 16 with an eventful 6-5 win (after extra time). Guernsey went 2-0 down, and it looked like they were going to be outclassed. At full time it was 3-3 and twice Guernsey went a goal down, only to equalise twice. Six minutes from time Dave Rihoy scored the winner ;D
Guernsey now face the winners of Ely City v Spalding United.
Guernsey FC still alive and kicking in the FA vase. In their quarter final match this Saturday, they drew away to Walsall Wood 0-0. With the home fans behind them in next week's replay under the floodlights of Footes Lane, they should hold the advantage. A trip to Wembley on May 4th still definitely on the cards.
Being the same weekend as the Guernsey Open, that could cause a bit of a dilemma for one local Bar Billiards player !
Guensey FC v Wasall Wood - FA Challenge Vase quarter Final LIVE At Half Time its 2-1 to Guernsey, Glyn Dyer son of Layabouts and Island Bar Billiards player Paul gets Guernsey's second goal on 43 minutes - great time to score ;D
Being an avid follower on non-league football, i came across the remaining fixtures for Guensey FC and could'nt beleive how many games they have remaining! www.guernseyfc.com/matches-fixtures-and-results They'll be playing Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays during April with 17 fixtures during the month. I take it that it's because they've had a great run in the FA Vase and teams not being able to travel to the Island mid-week, but i just hope they have a big squad or else they'll be some tired legs there! :o ;D
Guernsey are now concentrating on gaining promotion following the disappointment of loosing the FA vase semi-final against Favourites Spennymoor Town.
They now begin the start of reducing their fixture pile up, by playing 17 games in a month.
New recruits have been signed on including a 44 year old by the name of Matt Le Tissier :o :o :o They could always bring him on if they get awarded a penalty kick Cant see him lasting a full 90 minutes ::)
Best player I ever saw in 30 years of being an active football supporter. I remember one game we were leading Southampton 3-0 at half time and he scored a second-half hat trick. Looked like a god amongst men on the pitch.
And that includes 14 seasons in the top division (1986-2000). Second would be Jurgen Klinsmann who scored four against us once for Tottenham.
Ryman South league next ?, subject to final confirmation
That's the one you need to be in. Then it's Ryman Premier, Blue Square Conference South and finally Blue Square Conference (=step one of the non-league pyramid). Well done to Guernsey on the excellent progress so far. 8-)
