GUERNSEY FC now find themselves with a brutal fixture pile-up, but there was still one treat for local football fans on an otherwise sodden Saturday.

While the Green Lions saw their fourth postponed home CCL Premier Division match of the season, two of the Priaulx League’s title hopefuls played out a pulsating 2-2 draw at the Track.

Bels and St Martin’s shared the spoils in the only match at any level on the island to beat the rain, with Bels scoring a dramatic injury-time equaliser.

‘I am gutted for my lads given the nature of the equaliser and the fact that we deserved to win the game,’ said Saints coach John Peace in the aftermath.

‘But you get some big calls and don’t get others, they even themselves out over the course of the season and I suppose that is what makes football so special.'
