Thank you to all GFC players and coaches

AS A supporter of Guernsey FC, and I have been since it started, I have to agree with Alex Murphy’s midweek story on the struggle of GFC this season. Like all new football clubs they had to start at a lower level and our talented GFC were hammering many UK teams as they climbed the leagues to where they are now. At this level they are now facing, as Alex described, UK teams much stronger and of course most of them in this league have an open cheque book to sign on various players whenever they like and quite often it’s ex-pros. We have to admire our local talented players for all the travelling they have to do, leaving their families etc, bad weather, good weather, whatever.

A community we can all be proud of

WE ARE rightly proud of the very strong community spirit that exists in the Bailiwick and of the strong charitable outlook of the many local individuals who go above and beyond to help others in need. This has once again been brought to the fore in the case of one 11-year-old local boy, Ernie Backlund-Leale. Five years ago Ernie was diagnosed with leukaemia and has undergone numerous treatments including three years of intensive chemotherapy. Very sadly, it was recently discovered that a bone marrow transplant has been unsuccessful and Ernie is now receiving palliative care.
