Play-off hopes evaporate for Guernsey after Tooting loss

Guernsey's hopes of a Ryman South play-off spot were ended this weekend after they lost away to Tooting & Mitcham United.

Teenager Robbie Legg opened the scoring with his second goal for the club on his fourth start. It wasn't enough though for the Lions, as Tooting quickly equalised through Serge Makofo.

Ross Allen had a chance to put his side up in the second half but the keeper kept it out.

In a frenetic last 15 minutes Chace O'Neil made it 2-1for Tooting, Lee Hall made it three and Makofo scored his second to bring the score up to 4-1 for the hosts.

The loss emphasises Guernsey's away game problem, they have won only five games out of 20 away from Footes Lane this season.

It's a really disappointing result, it got far too open really, we tried to close it up by changing our shape and to be fair two key decisions changed the whole game. It's a game that we probably could of done better in, our possession, our execution wasn't great. We didn't dominate the ball enough and gave it away to cheaply at times.

Guernsey football prodigy Maya Le Tissier played the full 90 minutes for England's Under 15s, in their win against Valencia last night.

The 13-year-old is currently on tour with the team and savoured the 2-0 victory over the Spanish side.

I'm really delighted for all the squad and coaching staff. It was a really quick game against very skilful players. We were solid at the back and scored a couple of good goals. We worked really hard as a side and I'm shattered from playing the whole game as centre defensive midfield.

– Maya Le Tissier

Maya and the team face their next game tonight against Mislata UF.
