FA Cup dream over

GUERNSEY FC are out of the FA Cup after losing 3-2 in a second qualifying round thriller against Dover Athletic on Saturday.
The much hyped and talked about tie was played on neutral territory in Lancing and it was the Conference South who showed their status early on by taking a two-goal lead.
But as a resurgent GFC came out after half-time firing, Ross Allen brought the sides level with yet another brace, only for Ricky Modeste’s header to win the game, despite some brilliant late pressure by the heroic Green Lions.
After watching his side push it so close, GFC manager Tony Vance was a proud man at full-time and will now re-focus his side’s efforts on league and FA Trophy matches this coming week.
