Mark Moore I think you need to read my post a bit closer, I did not say "at any cost" I assume like probably most of the anti GFC whingers on here, that you've never been to a game? If not it is an insult to the 1,000+ at every game. If you had bothered to go you would could meet some of the finest players ever to grace an island shirt in the crowd. I am a Guernseyman to the core and feel it is great to have something to be very proud of. These players are a credit to Guernsey. Far from ruining local football it will encourage far more into the game. I can assure you that whilst I sponsor GFC in a small way I also sponsor other sports and will continue to do so. So "selfish" I don't think so. Support for youth football is to be encouraged, but what ultimately is the aim? to play for Bels, North, Rovers etc etc week in week out or to aim at a higher level like GFC where the level is far superior and will get better as they hopefully climb the leagues. Go into the schools and talk to the kids about local football, they look up to local players, who I have to say are great role models for local kids. I have nothing else to add as its obviously a contentious issue, none of us are ever going to agree. Personally I cannot wait for the next game!
