Holders up against Priaulx League leaders in last four

ST MARTIN’S face the stiffest test possible if they are to retain the Guernsey FA Cup – by drawing Bels in the semi-finals.

ST MARTIN’S face the stiffest test possible if they are to retain the Guernsey FA Cup – by drawing Bels in the semi-finals.

The black-and-whites are looking to become the first team in the competition’s nine-year history to win it back-to-back, but will have to negotiate the Priaulx League leaders to do so.

North and Rangers square off in the first semi-final on Friday 19 April, before the Saints v. Bels encounter takes place a day later on what was the original Upton date.

Despite failing to beat Bels so far this season and suffering two 4-1 and a 10-1 loss to them, as well as securing a 2-2 draw, Saints coach John Peace cannot wait for the tie.
