Firstly let me be clear, for me the Muratti Vase is the biggest game of the season. It is for this reason that NOT to move it would reduce the importance of the fixture and the Muratti Competition. The GFC project will for the foreseeable future divide opinion. But one thing that links all of us on here is the wanting of beating the auld enemy in May. GFC are all but the national team representing the Island in a UK competition. Due to circumstance beyond their control the season is fast becoming unmanageable due to the state of the Footes Lane pitch. Are people that love Guernsey football really saying that we should either ask our players to play three games in three days or ask them to choose between one island team and another? Even the Jersey coach wants to make sure that he faces the strongest Guernsey team possible and yet there appears to be some involved in CI football (any decision over moving it is down to the inter-insular committee) seem to want to devalue the competition.
