Guernsey FC's unbeaten home run ends

Guernsey FC's unbeaten start to the season at home came to an end tonight as they fell to a 4-2 defeat against Faversham Town.

The Green Lions, playing their first match since goalkeeper Chris Tardif broke his leg at the weekend, created some good chances but found themselves 2-0 down at half-time.

They conceded again before Matt Loaring and Dave Rihoy scored late goals to give the Green Lions faint hope of salvaging a point.

But a last gasp goal from the visitors sealed the points for them and the end of the Sarnians' home run.

It leaves them one spot above the relegation zone in Ryman South in 21st place.
