Guernsey 6, Wisbech Town 3

Surely there will not be many sides left in the EH Trophy draw wanting to face Guernsey – especially after this performance.

Andy Whalley’s men disposed of Wisbech Town in style on Saturday night, hardly giving their opponents a sniff of a chance thanks to an explosive opening 23 minutes in, where they established a 3-0 lead from which there was to be no coming back for their Cambridgeshire opponents.

The player-coach could not suppress his smile at the final whistle after a performance of pace and precision that reaffirmed this group of players’ desire to regain the trophy this year.

‘It was exactly what I wanted,’ was Whalley’s assessment.
