WHAT is the best goal ever scored at Footes Lane?

That may have been the question asked by many after just two minutes of Guernsey FC’s latest exhilarating CCL Premier Division victory.

Ben Harris’s second goal for Windsor on Saturday, an effort from the halfway line, flew past stranded GFC keeper Chris Tardif in a moment of sheer brilliance.

The extraordinary strike gave Windsor a 2-0 lead after less than 90 seconds of play and it is doubtful whether 21-year-old Harris will ever score a better goal.

However, GFC coach Tony Vance believes it was trumped later that afternoon, as Ross Allen made his own latest solo contribution with the fourth for GFC in the 5-2 success.
