Bels maintain gap

IT’S no change at the top of the Priaulx League after title rivals Vale Rec and Bels played out a 1-1 draw at the Corbet Field on Saturday, to keep Bels 10 points clear having played four games more.

IT’S no change at the top of the Priaulx League after title rivals Vale Rec and Bels played out a 1-1 draw at the Corbet Field on Saturday, to keep Bels 10 points clear having played four games more.

Damien Larkin’s penalty for the home side cancelled out Robbie Williams’ opener, while it was the same scoreline up the road where North and St Martin’s each picked up a point in an entertaining game.

Rangers and Sylvans also battled out a 2-2 draw at the College Field in the day’s other senior game.

While GFC had another Saturday off, CCL Premier Division league leaders Epsom & Ewell extended their lead with their 11th successive victory, beating Horley Town 4-1.

Geoff Ogier

I like the guy, and what a servant he has been to Guernsey football. However, after witnessing his performance at this game, should a 70 year old be taking such a fixture?

Spritely as he is, and I hope I am as fit as him at his age, his sight and hearing are not what they were and his decision making during this game was highly questionable, for both sides. The penalty alone left everyone in the ground scratching their heads. The amount of freekicks in a competative, but fair match, was just an example of a ref wanting to be the centre of attention. Let the game flow man...was a call by a number of the crowd.

I understand that Mr. Ogier himself completes the refs rota, and once again puts himself down for one of top games, when you have two equally qualified refs sitting in the stands watching. What must they be thinking....is he really the best the Island has to offer? Lets see who refs the FA Cup final...Mr. Ogier maybe?

So...hand over the carriage clock, give Geoff a hearty handshake and lets move on with the younger generation.... and by the way Mr. Batiste, get off the fence with your marking of 7/10.....if the GFC had a refs performance like that, the man in the middle would have been lambasted by you!!
