East Grinstead 3, Guernsey 19

GUERNSEY have plenty to celebrate over Christmas after ending East Grinstead’s three-year unbeaten home record on Saturday.

Despite missing half-a-dozen forwards, Jordan Reynolds’ side kept to their game plan brilliantly against the ‘G-Force’ to register their fourth win on the trot and the most satisfying of the season to date.

‘It was a great victory,’ said Guernsey head coach Reynolds.

‘They were very gracious in defeat, too, and said that they could not understand why we are in the position we are because we were one of the best sides they have played.

‘You look at the artillery we did not have available, but the guys who came in really stepped up and did a job for us.

‘It is a massive moment for us because we had won the three games before this, but pushing on against East Grinstead, who are in third, shows that there is so much potential to come from this side.

‘You look through the side on Saturday and every single player was outstanding.’
