Guernseys step up to a higher league has taught them a lesson. Following the euphoria of an opening away win, this has been followed by two home defeats at the hands of Horsham FC 0-1 and this afternoon 0-4 to Ramsgate. Hopefully the support will continue and they will do well to finish mid table at this rate, in such a competitive league.

Guernsey face a tough away match in their first ever FA Cup Tie. Playing Ryman South league leaders Crawley Down Gatwick. As they are playing better at away matches this season the dream is still alive
As a staunch Hastings United fan I was at the game today, got to say Guernsey are the best side we've played this season by a mile and they will be up near the top without doubt come end of the season, totally peeved off with the way we gifted them a penalty in the last moments of the game with the most deliberate handball you'll ever see!
As for the game, the first half was fantastic great football by both sides, second half was very average, felt neither side deserved to lose the game but these things happen in football and after our amazing run last year we can take it on the chin.
The Guernsey fans were a great bunch, many turned up approx 100 and made it a great atmosphere, all that i spoke to were very nice and we wish you all the best for the season (except the two games against us lol)
Best of luck to them in the next round

Sad to say that a ground sharing agreement with Guernsey Rugby Club has put paid to Guernsey hosting this tie. Guernsey Rugby Club had previously booked the Saturday lunchtime playing slot against UK league opposition Dover were unable to agree to an alternative day or time, so the tie will be played in England instead. As the Lions have won twice away in the FA Cup this season already, they are not phased about another away fixture. The tie will have even more edge about it now, so watch for the fireworks once the whistle goes
Tommo's view of the game: Guernsey looked good for 1st ten minutes with some slick passing. Then Horsham scored, for once beating the offside trap. Guernsey then equalised when they caught Horsham napping.
The next two goals, from Horsham, rivalled any I've seen this year in League Two. First a bullet header, and then a great solo goal from winger Tom Graves.
Horsham made it 4-1 soon after half-time and looked good value for it. But then they relaxed off, and allowed Guernsey back into it with a second goal ten minutes from time.
I missed the late drama as at 4.45 I had to make tracks to catch the bus. I needn't have bothered as the bus was delayed by 20 minutes anyway !
Guernsey supporters matched the Lardy Army for sound !
Cheap day of football for me: 1st half of Man City v Arsenal on BT Sport ....free Bus to/from Horsham Station with bus pass .....free Ground admission at Horsham ...................£5 Match Programme................................£2 Chips with curry sauce.........................£2,50
