As far as I am aware the end of the domestic football season on both islands is generally the senior Upton (due to be played on 20th April this year I believe)? Should Jersey clubs finish their domestic campaign by then (I have no idea if that is the case or not), can we realistically expect the JFA's agreement to postpone the Muratti to the end of May, as some have suggested? I find it hard to believe they would agree to this as it would see their top players having no competitive football for over a month whilst those who play for GFC will play 2 or 3 games a week in the build up? I believe the only option & the most sensible scenario is to postpone the Muratti by four days and play the game on Liberation day. Surely that would be a fair compromise and would avoid a direct fixture clash with GFC? What I do find slightly offensive though, is the suggestion that a second string Guernsey side representing the Island in the Muratti would be farcical. I bet the following who for one reason or another do not appear to be GFC regulars at the moment would have something to say about that? Jody Bisson, James Hamon, Ross Elliott, Naro Zimmerman, Damien Larkin, Paul Page, Chris Le Cheminant, Tom Strawbridge, Matt Warren, Scott Bradford, Scott Bougourd, Simon Marley, Joby Bourgaize, Piers Ockleford, Simon Tostevin, Craig Young and Marc Mcgrath to name just a few off the top of my head. Fingers crossed common sense prevails and we are cheering on Sam Cochrane et al at the Track on Liberation day!
