Green Lions back on top

AFTER watching Guernsey FC return to the top of the CCL Premier Division, coach Tony Vance hailed his side’s ongoing development.
The Green Lions edged out bottom side Hartley Wintney in a 4-3 thriller last night, withstanding a late fightback after seeing Ben Coulter sent off in a nervy ending.
However, braces apiece from Ross Allen and Dom Heaume secured the three points, with Vance in positive mood ahead of Saturday’s top-of-the-table clash against Badshot Lea.
‘We really had to grind out the points in the end tonight against a side who were certainly better than their league position suggests,’ he said.
‘For all those people who believe we are playing pub teams, perhaps if they came and watched an away game like this, then they would realise this is not an easy league at all.’
