THERE is no doubt about it. Were it a popularity contest or judged on the amount of column inches in this paper and CTV footage, Ross Allen would be Guernsey sport’s elite performer of 2013.

GUERNSEY sport is set to thrive for many years yet but, of course, not everything will be perfect.
NATALIE WHITTY got it right with her Facebook post.
THERE could scarcely be two more polar opposites in Channel Islands football than Guernsey FC and Alderney.
FOR the second season running, football fans have hit upon an intriguing, closely contested Priaulx League championship.
SIR Dave Brailsford, the man who has changed the face of British cycling, is apparently opposed to one type of person.
NOTHING moves on without some degree of a gamble.
THE performance may have been scratchy but there was still much to cheer about GRFC’s narrow win at home to Gravesend last Saturday. Not least that club president Adie Le Page (pictured) was up and about and looking no worse for wear after his recent health scare.
THEY were nervous about going cap in hand to Jersey, but the GFA summoned the character perhaps previous administrations would not have and posed the question that had to be asked for the integrity of the biggest football match in the Channel Islands.
HOW refreshing to see the Jersey football team management come out publicly in support of a Muratti switch and, in an instant, kick a dollop of mud in the eye of those who mischievously were wanting a club v. country row.
I REALLY pity Mark Le Tissier at the moment and only marginally less so Tony Vance, Colin Fallaize and the GFC stars who have given so much for the club these past two seasons.
THE prophets of GFC doom do make me laugh. A few games get postponed and suddenly the whole venture is in grave danger of falling in on itself.
