Beaten Erith drafted in two

AFTER scoring four times in a dramatic FA Vase turnaround last weekend, Guernsey FC’s incredible achievement was noteworthy enough.

AFTER scoring four times in a dramatic FA Vase turnaround last weekend, Guernsey FC’s incredible achievement was noteworthy enough.

But after learning that two of the opponents in Erith Town’s back five, goalkeeper Tom Warren and full-back Joe Obersteller, are current higher level players, it makes the feat even more impressive.

The Green Lions trailed Erith 3-0 with 11min. remaining in their second round tie, but scored three times in the dying minutes to force extra-time before winning it in the additional period.

It also turns out that a number of other players also played at steps three or four as recently as last season, before joining a new-look Erith team that has taken the Kent Premier League by storm.

How long are they going to milk beating 10 men for???

Its not like they saved anyones life

The fact they aren't still playing 3 steps up means they weren't good enough.

New headline...GFC struggle to beat 10 men with one of two who were in the squad at a decent level but weren't good enough.

Guernsey Geordie

Oh look, another GFC knocker. Don't forget that GFC also had two key players out by half time and they were clearly shaken by what happened to their mate Zico.

Watch these doubtrs crawl out of the woodwork if they get to the later stages of the Vase.

nic the knocker

havnt gsy fc got players who have played in higher standard semipro football ie Chris Tardiff, Zico Black to name 2 and also a junior international in young Mr Jordan

knoc knock

I have to say at least the knockers put together well structured arguements backed by evidence rather than ''bet you have never watched a game''. I don't really care either way about GFC or GFA footy.

Johno

You know what 2 knockers make.......a pair of T**s !!

Say no more

haha

Haha and you know what comes underneath the knockers....the supporters. I will also think you'll find people pay alot of attention to knockers

p.s.s glad i got my daily update on GFC in the press today

GFC Fan

@ nic the knocker

I thought the point the Press were saying was these players were STILL signed by a club at a higher level so were just on loan at Erith. Tardif and Zico no longer play for any other club than GFC....
