Champions in no mood to celebrate

Sport | Published:

IT WAS not the way they wanted to do it, but North are the kings of Guernsey football for the 31st time in their history after wrapping up the Priaulx League title.

Going into their match at St Andrew's on Saturday, the chocolate-and-blues knew that victory against a resurgent Rangers would be enough – with two games to spare.

They also had the safety net of knowing that a slip-up would not matter if second-placed Sylvans did not get the win they needed at Rovers.

Ultimately that is exactly what happened, as North's poor showing in deservedly being beaten 4-1 was alleviated with news that the Westerners had lost 1-0.

It took a good few moments after the full-time whistle at St Andrew's for that information to filter through from Port Soif and, even then, North's celebrations were muted to say the least.
