New-look holders are knocked out

GUERNSEY FC’s defence of the CCL Premier Challenge Cup is over after a new-look side were edged out 2-0 by Epsom & Ewell last night in the last-16.
The Green Lions fielded four debutants at High Road and an encouraging display was thwarted only by Kyle Hough’s second-half brace.
But with a fixture pile-up awaiting GFC in the league and FA Vase, the defeat was not necessarily a disaster for Tony Vance’s side.
Meanwhile, the coach was pleased with his team’s performance against the in-form ‘Es’.
‘I think it is safe to say that the new boys have integrated well and know the standard that is required at this level,’ he said.
