What is the Solution? (Guernsey fixtures)

Recommended Posts

Well if Guernsey do not win the league then that is enough notice for next year. As for this season I still disagree that players at this level should commit to playing over there midweek and losing out on pay and annual leave regardless of how many days leave they gave. I think it is totally out of order that people should suggest other wise.

Be handy though for Officials,they could do the 2 games and earn double bubble.The proviso being they take their beloved ones with them.Do Guernsey have different Sunday Trading Laws to us,do Pubs open late.Who would volunteer for the Sunday game,not the many Churchgoers amongst us surely.

One thing that could be taken into consideration, on the whole at Steps 5 & 6, is an earlier start to the season and a winter break.

 

That said, with climate change (and knowing my luck when I open my big mouth) we'll probably have snow in the summer and a baking hot winter.

Im sure the situation will get worst as we havent even entered the worst Months of December and January yet.

But as Fred said the committed players will be there given the notice.

Also no dis respect to any other players in cc prem, but if you dont travel to Guernsey on the Fri,Sat or Sunday whichever is given most of you if not all of you will never get the chance to play in front of 1000+ supporters again.

I was fortunate to be in the League playing for Merstham against AFC Wimbledon and the 1000+ supporters was a great atmosphere.

Also perhaps Guernsey could arrange a ground share with Horley??? That sound great, as long as we can take all the gate money.lol.

Are charter flights not a possibility?

A 5.30pm flight would allow time to get to the ground and warm up for an 8pm kick off.

Return on an 11.30pm flight?

 

Undoubtedly expensive, it may fall down on night flight restrictions but worth considering?

Guernsey airport closes immediately after the arrival of the last last flight in which is before 9pm.

The runway is being extended and upgraded with the work done overnight, until it reopens at 6.30am so any charter flight as last as you suggest can't and won't happen

All the Laws in Guernsey are different to the UK as we are not part of the UK we set our own laws. There are Sunday trading laws, pubs are open though.

Ok, let's look at South Park last year. They all had to take a day off to get to Whitley Bay for their Vase game. I doubt that any of them failed to get the time off for what was likely to be a very rare trip. Guernsey is the same and as I said before, if you don't want to go, just let your Manager know in good time so he can pick a committed replacement who can spare one day out of his busy holiday allocation to play the game that he loves in front of 1000+.

 

It will be interesting to see what the League vote would be if say, Jersey put a team in for next season and applied in the same way......

 

Mayor of Simpleton. An earlier start to the season?????? Is that actually possible? We started this year on the 4th August and that meant that many clubs were starting to train in late June. This midwinter break theory might work in the Premier League with their undersoil heating, but it would be typical that the first day we had a break, say two weeks in January, it will turn out that we get lovely weather, only for the bad weather to return once the break is over. It is impossible to do much more with the dates of the season unless you decided to play in the summer, but that's a horrible scenario I don't think many people want to see.

 

The only other scenario is to reduce the size of the divisions to 20, but that would need to start at Step One or maybe higher and filter down. This won't be happening in the next ten years if ever.

 

Of course, some clubs are having a midwinter break already. Chessington's is from October to March :)

Did Whitley Bay offer any compensation to South Park? Everyone wants GFC to be treated the same, unless its about £££ it seems.

FFS people, Guernsey are where they are through right. I for one am gutted I wont be making the trip over this weekend, weather permitting. Moaning and whinging won't change anything so STFU and enjoy your football instead of finding irrelevances to moan about. Meanwhile, tomorrow the temperature here will be a cool 39 degrees centigrade B)

Yes last year I did take annual leave to go to Whitley bay and I would do it again to guernsey it's one day for a great oppitunity.

No Whitley bay didn't offer compensation and didn't expect them to we got travel there and back and two nights in a Marriott hotel all payed for by them same situation as GFC so if a player is not willing to do that for one day then just take someone else who will.

Why not? Is it not better to be on a plane for 45 minutes then a coach for 5+ hours?

The final out come is 100 times better. I would travel away and use my anual leave everyday of the week for the FA Cup/Trophy/Vase. Anyway, one would expect to travel away in those knid of competitions.

Great attitude!!!! Are you having a laugh. This is step 5 not pro football. Absolute joke some of you are on here (not all). I agree bobuk, they should go to france, I didnt want them in the league and I never got a say or choice so this is me voicing my opinion and if you dont like it then get off the forum.

 

Thank you
