THE little matter of a trip to the National Three London & South-East leaders stands between Guernsey and the much-needed Christmas break.

THE little matter of a trip to the National Three London & South-East leaders stands between Guernsey and the much-needed Christmas break.

Coach Jordan Reynolds is down to a threadbare squad for tomorrow’s match at Dorking and admitted yesterday he was yet to finalise a team before rattling off the names of 10 unavailable players off the top of his head.

They include influential figures such as Tom Pool, Tom Ceillam, Luke Sayer and Chris Wood along with long-term absentees James Regnard and Jason Batiste.

‘It does not get any easier for us,’ the coach said.

‘We have got a fair few guys out and we are going to be really happy to get into Christmas.'
