BELGRAVES have turned their back on Manzur, but the Guernsey Football League Management chief has vowed to do all it can to keep them going.

Only yesterday the Guernsey Press revealed that just two full years into a three-year deal to play out of the Track, Manzur, who have four senior teams including a vibrant first-team bolstered by GFC players, had been served notice to quit at the end of this campaign.

As yet, they have no idea where they will be able to play and don’t expect a rival senior club to come to their rescue.

‘We have been in consultations with Manzur and we are very supportive in trying to keep Manzur in the league,’ said GFLM chairman Phil Corbet. ‘They have added value to the league and we wish to find an option for them to continue,’ he added.

‘We don’t want any club folding.

‘There are a number of options out there and we are trying to work with them so they can continue as a club in the Priaulx League.

‘It may be that we ask clubs to play all their games on the opposition’s pitch.’
