ANOTHER comeback of all comebacks for Guernsey FC.

Two goals down inside just 90 seconds at home to Windsor on Saturday, Tony Vance’s side benefited from an unfortunate sending off of the visiting centre-half to romp to an exhilarating 5-2 win which keeps them on the coat-tails of the CCL Premier Division pacesetters, Egham Town.

And to complete a great day for the Green Lions, second-placed Badshot Lea, so impressive at Footes Lane in November, surprisingly lost 2-1 at home to Croydon, and fancied dark horses South Park dropped two important points in a 1-1 draw against Hanworth Villa.

Windsor manager Mick Woodham, who has inspired a mini-revival at his club after they lost a host of key players in September, had the commendable good grace to praise GFC for their brilliant comeback, but felt a sense of injustice at the dismissal of his centre-half Dan Hicks, after just 25 minutes.
