Guernsey FC 1, Billericay Town 2
Saturday 19th October 2013, 5:12PM BST.
Guernsey FC are out of the FA Trophy at the first qualifying round stage after a Footes Lane defeat to Ryman Premier outfit Billericay Town.
Glenn Poole’s penalty and Joe Benjamin’s effort gave the visitors a 2-0 half-time lead and they could have been out of sight had it not been for the excellence of GFC goalkeeper Chris Tardif, who made a number of fine stops.
Ross Allen gave GFC a chance with a brilliant individual goal in the second half, but it wasn’t to be and they will now have the chance to focus solely on their Ryman South league campaign, which recommences against Worthing next weekend (26 October).
