THE two biggest GFC fans in the States are throwing their weight behind attempts to find short- and long-term solutions to the problematical Footes Lane pitch.
Amid widespread feelings of inertia by the Culture and Leisure department to what many are calling embarrassing levels of postponements, Darren Duquemin and Mary Lowe are eager to see some immediate progress.
‘Why is our newest pitch on the island so unoperational?’ asked Deputy Lowe.
‘It is bringing Guernsey a bad reputation. England have had snow and floods and got games on, but we have not been able to,’ she added.
Deputy Duquemin, a member of the Culture and Leisure board, is desperate to get football being played again without any more damage to the Green Lions’ title chances – and the club’s reputation in the UK.’
