A DRAMATIC penalty shootout win for the island Under-21s at Springfield and a far more routine success for the Green Lions was the heartwarming story of a distinctly chilly Saturday.

In Jersey, Will Woodford’s youngsters put behind them a dreadful first-half showing, to force extra-time and then hold their nerve better come the decisive spot-kicks.

The pulses did not race nearly as much at Footes Lane where a crowd of 992 watched Guernsey FC  produce a rare clean sheet and three more points, which  was ideal preparation for their crunch CCL Premier Division clash at Egham Town tomorrow night.

The Green Lions cruised past Wembley 3-0 to pick up their first home league win of 2013.
