Cochrane off… is Wembley trip too?

GUERNSEY FC will have to reach the FA Vase final the hard way after a convincing 3-1 home defeat to Spennymoor Town in the first leg of their semi-final on Saturday.
A club record 4,290 fans packed Footes Lane for the clash between the two pre-tournament favourites and the Green Lions were level at half-time, Dom Heaume cancelling out Steven Richardson’s opener.
But it was Richardson who struck again and Andrew Stephenson added to it, while GFC captain Sam Cochrane was sent off for a needless elbow, ruling him out for three games when his suspension kicks in.
GFC coach Tony Vance accepted it was a fair result on the day, but insisted his team were not out of the tie and overturning the deficit was still a possibility.
