Guernsey taught a lesson in desire at Grammar

IT CAME late but victory was nothing less than Tring deserved.
On a day when the match was switched to the Grammar School pitch a few hundred yards across Footes Lane with the Osmond Priaulx Field waterlogged, Guernsey and the visitors both ended the match caked in mud but it was not hard to distinguish the victors from the hosts.
The Tring side celebrated victory as if they had won the National Three London & South-East championship while Guernsey’s heads hung low, disappointed to have let a nine-point second-half lead slip.
Coach Jordan Reynolds, though, was in no mood for mincing his words at the final whistle.
‘Tring played a lot better than we did,’ he said.
