Cochrane fears ‘near impossible’ choice
Saturday 2nd February 2013, 2:00PM GMT.
SAM COCHRANE has called for the Muratti Vase to retain its ‘sacred’ place as the final game of the local football season – however late that may need to be.
Yesterday the Guernsey Press revealed that there is ‘every chance’ of Guernsey FC games being played on May Bank Holiday weekend, either side of the Guernsey v. Jersey clash.
With both islands apparently reluctant to move the inter-insular because of ‘club’ games, unless it is the FA Vase final, there is the real possibility of players being forced to play three times in succession – or make an unprecedented choice.
But Cochrane, pictured, who is the captain of both GFC and the Guernsey Muratti team, has urged a common sense approach.
‘If there is a clash, then both islands should accept that what we are doing with GFC is moving island football forward and move the Muratti back, however many weekends it needs to be.’
