Terrific match, played in the right spirit which could have gone either way.

There are five or six Guernsey players who played yesterday who missed their midweek away matches at Merstham and/or Hythe, so it's fair to say we played a harder 'weekend' Guernsey than the easier 'midweek' Guernsey. The players who missed Merstham (M) and Hythe (H) but started against us were the following:

Chris Tardif (M+H)
Sam Cochrane (M+H)
Kieran Mahon (H)
Matt Loaring (H)
David Rihoy (M+H)
Ryan-Zico Black (M)

Whilst this puts them at a disadvantage for midweek away matches it logically therefore puts Merstham and Hythe at an unfair advantage. And let's not forget that Three Bridges suffered more than anyone in their midweek trip away to Guernsey.

It does make a bit of a mockery of the competition to be honest and it would be interesting to see whether the FA took consideration of this when they admitted them into the football system.

Had we lost yesterday this would obviously sound like a whinge or sour grapes. But we won the match fair and square and we went home happy.
